Omega-3 & CBD

Omega-3: Better Paired with CBD?

Omega-3: Better Paired with CBD?

Omega-3 fatty acids play a key role in supporting health and wellbeing.

 

The omega-3 fatty acid DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) can contribute to the maintenance of normal brain function, heart function and vision.

 

Meanwhile, the omega-3 fatty acid EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) – when taken alongside DHA – can contribute to normal heart function and normal blood function.

 

Omega-3 fatty acids also play an important role in supporting healthy cell membranes, and they can have a unique relationship with CBD. But how exactly does this work and how could it benefit you?

What is CBD?

 

CBD stands for cannabidiol. CBD is a naturally occurring, non-psychotropic compound extracted from hemp plants.

 

CBD is a phytocannabinoid, and it’s been shown to be able to interact with the endocannabinoid system.

How Does the Endocannabinoid System Work?

 

The endocannabinoid system is a cell-signalling network that’s spread throughout the body. It relies on healthy cell membranes (which omega-3 fatty acids can help to support) to function at its best.

 

Our endocannabinoid systems are comprised of:

 

  • Endocannabinoids, which are a type of molecule made by the body
  • Receptors, which endocannabinoids can bind to, signalling that the wider endocannabinoid system needs to take action
  • Enzymes, which can help to break down endocannabinoids that are no longer needed

 

The endocannabinoid system plays a key role in helping to balance a number of processes around the body, including:

 

  • Immune system function
  • Pain receptors
  • Metabolism
  • Mood
  • Sleep cycle
  • Learning and memory

 

It’s believed that omega-3 essential fatty acids are involved in the production of endocannabinoids, while CBD is thought to interact with the endocannabinoid system, enabling endocannabinoids themselves to have longer-lasting results.

MINAMI CBD + Omega-3

 

CBD is fat-soluble, which means it needs fats (such as omega-3s) in order to be utilised by the body, so it makes sense to take the two together.

 

We love to innovate at MINAMI, and we’re extremely proud of our first-of-its-kind MINAMI CBD + Omega-3 formula.

 

 

These softgel fish oil supplements combine 10mg of CBD with 850mg of the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA in every capsule.
