Does Medical Marijuana Have a Place in Anti-Aging Medicine?
In the world of anti-aging medicine, it seems that new developments arise faster than any of us can keep up with. One of the most recent of these is the concept of processing medical marijuana in such a way that the antioxidant properties found in cannabinoids are maximized.
Medical marijuana may be prescribed to treat health conditions such as glaucoma, or to minimize the side effects of aggressive medical treatments, such as nausea related to chemotherapy treatments. Hemp—the industrialized form of marijuana—is not an uncommon ingredient in beauty products. However, the concept of distilling the antioxidant properties of hemp to specifically target the aging process is a new one. Formulated into a number of external applications, such as facial cleansers, serums and night creams, hemp provides the active ingredient in the HempMedsPX new line of anti-aging products.
Internal vs. External Aging
Medical science has yet to endorse any over-the-counter product as an effective solution for reducing the visible signs of age. In fact, when it comes to aging, most physicians focus instead on the bigger picture rather than just appearances. Major physiological changes such as fatigue, concentration problems and weight gain may be connected to age-related hormone imbalance. These concerns carry far more impact on daily quality of life than the condition of a person’s skin.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy offers a whole-body approach to fighting the aging process and helping you feel more like yourself again. With hormones back in proper alignment for more effective use by the body, men and women can more fully realize improved health where it matters the most: on the inside.
