Hemp and Hemp Select + Curcumin

by Carly Neubert, BA, NC March 03, 2021

Hemp is a plant variety that many know little about. Not only is it difficult to get results on it from a simple google search, but it is also often associated with various other topics of discussion like supplementing, Hemp select, Hemp Select plus Curcumin, and so on. This article should supply you with a general understanding of hemp and its health benefits. Additionally, you can find an in-depth look at the individual products Hemp Select and Hemp Select plus Curcumin, along with some customer reviews. To discover more about hemp, please keep reading!

Hemp Overview 

Hemp, also known as industrial hemp, is a plant variety of the Cannabis sativa species. It is largely used as an industrial product (hence the name) and can be found in day-to-day products like clothing, textiles, diapers, ropes, carpeting, building materials, and many personal care items. It has been rising exponentially in popularity due to the fact that it contains many healthful substances that can be extracted from its seeds, stalks, leaves, and roots.

For one, hemp fiber is eco-friendly and relatively easy to produce. This is often used in textiles like paper, as well as stronger building materials. Going deeper, its seeds are known for being a superb source of protein, omega-3, and omega-6 fatty acids. They also possess plant-based compounds that can help lower cholesterol (phytosterols). Furthermore, hemp oil is derived from hemp seeds and provides similar health benefits. Hemp oil can also be used topically - it’s great for the skin and hair - and can be processed as hemp oil supplements too.

What do hemp supplements do?

Hemp supplements most commonly come in the form of hemp oil supplements. These supplements can allow you to reap the benefits of hemp (and hemp oil) in a simple, yet effective manner. A majority of these supplements are available in gel capsules and can help regulate your body’s nervous system, support immune function, maintain a normal inflammatory response, and improve skin and hair health. 

As mentioned above, hemp oil is an excellent source of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. This is part of the reason it is so successful at producing health benefits. In fact, a 2011 study determined that adding omega-3s, like those found in hemp oil, can reduce inflammation in the body. This can be crucial to reducing pain and preventing diseases like cancer and heart disease. 

The fatty acids found within hemp oil can also treat a variety of skin disorders, such as acne, eczema, psoriasis, and lichen planus. A 2014 study outlines hemp oil’s potential as a potent, and possibly universal acne treatment. A 2005 study concluded that hemp oil was effective in reducing eczema symptoms. Corresponding 2014 and 2015 articles indicate that hemp oil is a useful treatment for lichen planus and psoriasis, respectively. 

When taken in the form of hemp oil supplements, you can reap both hemp’s nutritional and topical benefits.

What is Hemp Select and how is it useful? 

Hemp Select is a hemp oil supplement produced by the company Terry Naturally. They produce a highly concentrated oil capsule via an eco-friendly and clean CO2 extraction process. Its main ingredient is European hemp, which is non-GMO and farmed using ethical practices. The recommended dosage is one softgel capsule per day, each of which contains 50 mg of pure hemp oil.

These softgels are an easy way to incorporate some of the fatty acids and phytonutrients associated with hemp and hemp oil into your diet. In doing so, you should be able to feel and see the benefits within a few consistent doses.

What is Hemp Select plus Curcumin? 

This softgel supplement combines Terry Naturally’s pure hemp oil with another potent and beneficial botanical: curcumin. Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric. Like hemp, it has powerful anti-inflammatory properties and is an antioxidant. It has been the center of over 50 published studies, one of which indicates that curcumin can relieve symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease, pancreatitis, arthritis, and chronic anterior uveitis. 

Curcumin is just one extract that can be taken from turmeric roots. Naturally, the curcumin content of turmeric is low, so the best way to receive this compound is by supplementing as opposed to gulping down tablespoons of turmeric powder. Even so, curcumin is poorly absorbed in the bloodstream on it's own. Thankfully, Terry Naturally’s Hemp Select plus Curcumin contains phospholipids for the ultimate nutrient delivery. Finally, this supplement is enhanced with turmeric essential oil, which contains turmerones. Clinically-studied turmerones are known to further enhance curcumin transportation, allowing for better absorption, blood retention, and overall outstanding benefits.

Like Hemp Select, this product provides all of hemp oil’s natural benefits. Unlike Hemp Select, it is fortified with curcumin for the best anti-inflammatory response. Both of the botanicals present in this supplement are premium, extracted from specially cultivated European plants. Similar to Hemp Select, the dosage for Hemp Select plus Curcumin is one softgel daily, a rather simple task when it comes to integrating these amazing nutrients into your diet. 

Here’s what some customers have to say about Terry Naturally’s Hemp Select and Hemp Select plus Curcumin: 

“So glad I don’t have to drive everywhere to find these. They help with my pain everyday. Thank you” - Sue A. (verified buyer via Healthy Habits Living)
“My husband and I have been taking this product for about 6 months. We find relief from arthritis pain. The price we paid elsewhere was significantly higher, for exactly the same brand.” - Mary G. (verified buyer via Healthy Habits Living)
Hemp Select has definitely helped with the overall pain I have been experiencing. If I miss taking it one day I can tell the difference.” - Joanne B. (verified buyer via Healthy Habits Living)
Has made all the difference in the world. I have degenerative discs in my neck , always in pain , since I’ve been taking this it has reduced the pain by 90%.” - Susan B. (verified buyer via Healthy Habits Living)

Ultimately, hemp (specifically hemp oil) has some powerful and valuable health benefits. A great and easy way to incorporate this into your diet is through hemp oil supplements. Consider Terry Naturally's Hemp Select and Hemp Select plus Curcumin as two excellent, potent, and low-dosage hemp oil supplements.
