Anxiety-related disorders affect a huge segment of our population. It is estimated that 40 million people over the age of 18 experience some sort of anxiety.
Accumulating evidence from human experimental, clinical and epidemiological studies suggests that Hemp Extract has demonstrated powerful anti-anxiety properties.
Research has shown that not only is it safe and well-tolerated, but it is non-addictive and lacks the more dangerous side effects of the usual medications prescribed for anxiety disorders. It is helpful in treating the following anxiety-related disorders:
• Panic disorder
• Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
• Social phobia
• Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
• Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
• Mild to moderate depression
Hemp Extract exerts several actions in the brain that explain why it could be effective in treating anxiety. There are areas of the brain known to control emotional behavior, mood, sleep, stress, irritability, fear and even the sensation of “craving.” Hemp Extract appears to attenuate the well-known “fight or flight” phenomenon to physical and mental stress, which reduces panic and anxiety behavior.
Research* strongly supports Hemp Extract as a treatment for generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
Hemp Extract has clearly shown that it safely and effectively reduces feelings of fear and anxiety, while at the same time helping to restore a healthy stress response.
Thank you for taking your time to become educated on the science and technologies behind the best health supplements.
My best wishes for your best health.
