Does CBD Help with Detox?

Sometimes associated with eating a limited diet or using a special drink, elimination and detox are normal physical processes that need to happen all the time. Our bodies take in nutrients and eliminate waste; the more efficiently, the better.

The Five Detoxifying Organs

A healthy human body uses five organs to eliminate and detox. They are the:

  • Liver
  • Lungs
  • Kidneys
  • Colon
  • Skin

The lymphatic system, which is part of the immune system, is also integral to maintaining a healthy internal balance.

Minimize the Toxic Burden

Medical professionals say the best way to detox is by eating a consistently healthy diet and getting regular exercise. If we don't make excessive demands on our organs with lots of fatty foods, a sedentary lifestyle, and other 'bad' habits, our bodies can manage the elimination process.

The reality is that most of us do put a strain on our organs, some more than others. When the organs cannot keep up with our demands on them, toxins build up.

Our exposure to environmental toxins exceeds any other time in history, and taking extra measures to support our detoxifying organs' healthy function allows us to balance that exposure.

14 Plant Terpenes to Fight Toxins and Support Your Organs

Jampha Detox is a unique formulation to assist the body as it purges unwanted toxins, chemicals, and substances – including heavy drugs. We use a long list of plant terpenes in this formula.

Plants use terpenes to keep out unwanted toxins, and they activate our endocannabinoid system, which stretches from head to toe and maintains our body's homeostasis.

Terpenes have a vast array of fragrances, flavors, and effects. Here we'll look at the 14 terpenes in our Detox Tincture Collection.

Alpha-Bisabolol

Your skin is an essential organ of elimination, and excessive toxins can come out in rashes, acne, or other skin irritations. A-bisabolol is a frequent ingredient in personal care products due to its remarkable skin care benefits. Studies on a-bisabolol have noted its antioxidant, anti-aging, and wound healing properties.

A-bisabolol also works to reduce inflammation, kill cancer cells, and fight infection, supporting your lymphatic system in its detoxifying work for the immune system.

Valencene

Valencene is widely used for its bright, citrusy scent, but it also helps your body detox and stays healthy. First, valencene reduces inflammation and relieves the symptoms of an allergic reaction.

Second, this natural terpene inhibits cancer cells' growth, including for colon cancer in this study.

Finally, valencene has healing benefits for your skin, which is one of your five essential detoxifying organs.

Alpha & Beta Pinene

Alpha and beta-pinene each support your immune system function in multiple ways. They fight infection, reduce inflammation, and can inhibit cancer and leukemia cells.

These remarkable, pine-scented terpenes also show potential in the treatment of neurodegenerative conditions like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases. Specifically, pinene helps balance the oxidant and antioxidant levels in your nervous system.

Eucalyptol

Perhaps because it's been more thoroughly investigated than many terpenes, the list of eucalyptol's benefits is stunning. Related to detoxification, studies show eucalyptol works as an antioxidant and provides relief from inflammation-causing pain. It has antibacterial and antifungal properties, which help your body resist and eliminate toxins and invaders.

Eucalyptol shows promise to treat respiratory diseases and pancreatitis. Additional studies reveal how it can help repair colon damage, support cardiovascular health, and slow down neurodegenerative diseases.

D-Limonene

D-limonene is another well-studied terpene with a spectacular list of benefits. Related to organ health and detoxification, d-limonene alleviates insulin resistance for patients with chronic liver disease. It is a natural antiviral and antimicrobial, which means it supports your immune system and kills bacterial and viral invaders.

In studies on colon cancer, d-limonene effectively fought cancer cells. Specifically, it induced autophagy or signaled the immune system to target and eliminate those cells. Multiple studies also show d-limonene supports the lymphatic system and helps regulate immune function.

Our mood influences our well-being, and d-limonene reduces anxietydepression and works to reduce stress.

Delta 3 Carene

In addition to cannabis and hemp plants, the delta 3 carene terpene is found in aromatic plants like rosemary, cedar, and pine.

It supports your respiratory system and can work as an expectorant to reduce mucus from the lungs. It's also shown to kill gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria and candida species. Candida is a yeast-by product in the digestive system that builds up when the bacterial balance in your stomach and intestines is thrown off by excessive and prolonged use of antibiotics, sugar, or alcohol. Probiotics are the gut bacteria that tend to be easily killed off and need to be replaced, which is why some doctors recommend eating yogurt after taking antibiotics.

Beta-Caryophyllene

Spicy-scented b-caryophyllene is another powerhouse terpene. Studies show it fights inflammation, including colon, and may be useful to combat inflammatory bowel disease.

A medical indicator of chronic or systemic inflammation is called 'the tumor necrosis factor,' and b-caryophyllene reduces that. It also accelerates cell healing.

B-caryophyllene not only reduces the symptoms of anxiety and depression but also contributes to changes in behavior. A rare terpene that directly activates the CB2 endocannabinoid receptor, it produces multiple behavioral changes relevant to anxiety and depression.

Citral

Citral supports your five detoxifying organs by improving metabolic rates and helping to manage blood sugar.

Initial studies show potential as an anti-cancer agent.

It also works as an anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial to support your body's natural elimination processes.

Linalool

Linalool is not just a potent anti-inflammatory; it can help the immune system heal and repair after illness or disease. It is also part of the entourage of cancer-fighting terpenes in this Detox Tincture Collection.

Linalool also works to reduce anxietyrelieve stress, and ease depression – all that support optimal immune function.

Eugenol

Eugenol lowers serum cholesterol levels and supports healthy liver activity. Your liver is a major detoxifying organ with over 500 functions inside your body.

Eugenol also protects the kidneys and helps them recover after injury.

It works as an antibacterial, antifungalanti-inflammatory, and antioxidant. It supports the immune system to defend against and remove unwanted bacteria, viruses, and free radical molecules.

Geraniol

Geraniol has a light floral scent similar to roses but brings significant health benefits. Studies show it protects your liver and may assist in its regeneration. It also supports optimal kidney function. It also has anti-tumor properties.

Geraniol can work as an antiviralantifungalantimicrobial, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory.

Terpineol

Terpineol also supports the hard-working liver. In liver cancer patients, it inhibits tumor growth and encourages healing.

It also helps protect our important digestive system from acid damage.

To facilitate detox, terpineol kills bacteria and fights fungus.

Alpha-Phellandrene

To round out our 14 power-packed terpenes in our Detox Tincture Collection, we have a-phellandrene, which has been used in Chinese medicine for hundreds of years.

Studies on a-phellandrene show it boosts immune function and fights against cancer, including against breast and prostate cancer cells.

It kills fungus by disrupting the fungal cell membrane's integrity, making it easy for your body to cleanse and be rid of it.
