Obesity is caused by a chronic imbalance between energy intake and expenditure. The growing rate of obesity is becoming a major public health concern. Obesity is associated with the risk of developing metabolic syndrome, which has devastating consequences, including decreased quality of life and shortened life span. Additionally, obese people suffer from psychological problems like depression and obsession1.
Many people suffering from obesity are recommended different methods or treatments – from diet to prescription medicines or surgery. Not everyone is ready to practice a strict diet or use drugs or go for surgery since many such treatments are commonly associated with issues like the inability to maintain weight loss, serious cardiovascular diseases, or gastrointestinal symptoms2.
Therefore, no surprise that there is a need for finding natural and safer remedies. CBD may be considered one of such methods. Of course, CBD is not used as a separate treatment, but if you take it regularly, your chances of a successful weight loss can increase.
We are always seeking ways to regulate our metabolism and more often speed it up!
Here are some tips on metabolism regulation and ways of including CBD:
Adequate sleep is very important for those who seek to lose weight. Too little sleep or poor sleep quality can increase the chances of obesity. The study suggests the association between inadequate sleep and obesity is stronger in children and adolescents4.
It is good practice to ensure enough hours of sleep each night and to create a regular daily routine. This goes for your diet as well.
Some recent findings show that CBD may improve sleep and /or reduce anxiety5. It also has a positive effect on weight loss as obesity itself is a heavy psychological burden and obese people tend to suffer from several psychological problems due to low self-esteem, mood disorders or body image issues6.
The most notable benefit of CBD, when used for sleep-related problems, is safety. There are no reported cases of a lethal overdose of CBD products, and severe side effects are reported rarely.
Let us get this straight. CBD is shown to have beneficial effects on health, including weight loss. Researchers are still studying CBD and all its benefits are yet not determined. We have some findings that CBD may help regulate metabolism and help with psychological problems including anxiety, depression and sleeping disorder. But more large-scale clinical trials are needed.
