As you may have noticed, here at Lanai Hemp we use organic cold-pressed tropical fruit oil blends in all our CBD oils. Before we get into the benefits of organic cold-pressed fruit oil extracts, let’s first discuss what drove this idea. The inspiration for these organic fruit oil blends comes from the island of Lanai, in Hawaii. Lanai was at one point the largest pineapple plantation in the world, but over time it has returned to its natural state and is a lush, organic paradise.
This inspired our founder to create tropical fruit infused CBD oil blends that carry on the island’s legacy, while adding additional healing properties people can benefit from.
Nutrition of Pineapple
What are the nutritional benefits of organic cold-pressed fruit oil extracts? There are many, for instance the nutrition profile of a pineapple is outstanding. It is rich in vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and antioxidants. Although this fruit is naturally sweet, there are very little calories per serving. Pineapples are an excellent source of vitamin C, manganese, and thiamin.
Vitamin C helps fight-off colds, kill toxins in the body, and may reduce blood pressure. Manganese helps keep your bones and connective tissues strong, is involved in carbohydrate and fat metabolism, regulates blood sugar, helps absorb calcium, and is important for nerve function. Thiamin is involved in energy production and is overall vital for nerve, heart, and muscular function, as well as glucose metabolism. Pineapples also carries a unique enzyme that is not very common amongst most fruits and vegetables, called bromelain. This enzyme helps break down and digest protein and also helps reduce inflammation and swelling, which is what pineapples are mainly known for.
This makes pineapple an ideal partner for our organic full-spectrum CBD extract, as it serves to boost the anti-inflammatory properties CBD is already well-known for while adding these nutritional benefits as well.
Nutrition of Mango
When the organic cold-pressed fruit oils are extracted, the benefits become even more potent. Coupled with our water soluble full-spectrum CBD, they help reduce inflammation, pain, suppress acne, increase skin health, and help keep hair moisturized.
Additionally, we decided to add a unique twist and blend in organic cold-pressed mango oil to give our full-spectrum CBD extract a more tropical feel and add essential nutritional properties to bolster and compliment our already potent ultra-premium CBD extract. Mangos are another amazing fruit with many benefits! They are known to be one of the most widely consumed fruits in the world, with an amazing nutrition profile which includes vitamin A, folate, B6, vitamin K, potassium and they are also high in antioxidants. Mangos also contain essential fatty-acids to help support a healthy body. These can help boost brain health, keep the heart healthy, fight against disease, and keep the skin and hair healthy and moisturized.
Vitamin A is an antioxidant, like vitamin C, and helps fight against cell damage, supports vision, skin, and bone health. Folate helps create our DNA by being involved in genetic make-up, and is especially important for women as it helps prevent birth defects. It can also help lower depression, blood pressure, fight cancer, and maintain a healthy heart. Vitamin B6 is essential to our health because we do not make it in our bodies naturally. In other words, we have to get it from an outside source to maintain healthy B6 levels. Vitamin B6 helps create hormones and can assist in reducing stress. Vitamin K helps regulate calcium levels in the blood and contributes to bone health. It is has an important role in controlling blood clots as well. Potassium is widely available in most fruits and vegetables and has many benefits essential to our health. Potassium helps regulate fluid balance, muscle contraction, and nerve conduction.
Okay, so what does pineapple, mango, and our full-spectrum organic CBD oil all have in common? These fruit oils benefit our health in a unique way by bolstering the anti-inflammatory properties inherent in high-quality CBD.
Why is reducing inflammation so important?
If you have high inflammation, you have reduced blood flow throughout your body and therefore a lack of nutrients being supplied to specific areas that need it most. Those who have high inflammation are also more prone to disease and illness, which can be more difficult to control over time if not addressed. Additionally, inflammation can cause pain and discomfort in your muscle tissue, joints, and nerves. Many people suffer from this discomfort on a daily basis without understanding the root cause of why it occurs.
Here at Lanai Hemp we think of our customers like family. We therefore take a disciplined and holistic approach to designing all our products. We don’t want to simply provide a high-quality CBD oil, we want to pair it with the most beneficial and complimentary ingredients we can find to bolster its natural therapeutic properties while also adding new elements to help you even more.
