CBD Research - How CBD Works
HOW DOES WORK FOR MITOCHONDRIA
If you keep up on health advances these days, a word continues to become more popular.
Barring high school science classes, most people might draw a blank stare.
Don't stare for too long...
Mitochondria may be nothing short of the root of all aging!
That will get your attention back in focus.
We're quickly approaching the point where each year of life will turn back the clock by 2.
There are huge advances in understanding the underpinning of aging and it's related ailments.
Some key factors that show promise:
- Addressing the effects of falling hormones
- Genetic pathways of aging
- Senolytics and removing zombie cells
- Mitochondrial health and numbers
The latter two are the most exciting.
Let's look at mitochondria specifically.
Check out Mitochondria and the Future of Health by Lee Know when you get a chance.
It's a fascinating look at what is coming in this field.
Interestingly, research is showing CBD has a direct effect on mitochondrial function.
It's a stop-gap till we get new technologies but let's start reversing the clock now!!
Even if only the minute hand.

Let's get started. The clock is ticking!
Quick Introduction To Mitochondria
So... it's a big word and not one in our everyday conversations.
Mitochondria are the little power plants in our cells.
They're actually ancient bacteria that some distant ancestors took hostage about 1.5 billion years ago.
Mitochondria even have their own, separate DNA!
They provide almost all the energy for everything we do.
Human cells usually have 1000-2000 mitochondria per cell with more energy intensive cells demanding more.
Liver and heart cells are some of the most crowded!
There are diseases directly tied to mitochondria dysfunction and many of our most common diseases may be impacted by reduced function in mitochondria as we age.
Mitochondria are very popular right now in research on longevity.
New research is fascinating.
A recent study with mice show the power of mitochondria.
Mice were genetically modified to have reduced mitochondrial activity when given a specific antibiotic.
The target group started to age very quickly with all the tell-tale sizes for mice.
Wrinkles. Hair loss. Low energy. Health issues.
They reversed the process and the aging effects went away!
Aging is thought to only have one direction!
Onward and Upward!
This experiment showed that aging may just be a function of reduced mitochondrial activity.
