Copaiba Softgels offer 120 mg of CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® Copaiba essential oil in a base of extra virgin olive oil, contained within a carrageenan-free softgel. These softgels take supplementation to the next level, offering antioxidant, cardiovascular, immune, digestive, nervous, and respiratory system supporting benefits for those seeking optimal wellness.*
As the essential oil with the highest concentration of beta-caryophyllene, Copaiba has a spectrum of health-promoting benefits that continues to expand as more research is conducted. While there was always the option of putting a few drops of CPTG Copaiba essential oil into a glass of water or tea, or into your own Veggie Caps, there is nothing like the convenience of a ready-to-use dietary supplement.
Benefits of Copaiba Softgels
Although the history of use in both South America and Europe is centuries old, and compounds that can influence the endocannabinoid system are rapidly becoming one of the most popular areas of health science research, we are just beginning to discover how Copaiba has such a vast spectrum of health-promoting benefits.
- Several experimental studies suggest that when ingested, Copaiba essential oil has strong antioxidant activity1.*
- Internal use of Copaiba may have cardiovascular system supporting properties, promote proper immune response, and may even support the health of the respiratory system2,3.*
- Further experimental research suggests that taking Copaiba essential oil internally may help support general cellular health and function4.*
What Is the Chemistry Behind Copaiba?
Many of the benefits of Copaiba are derived from the rich concentration of the phytocannabinoid, beta-caryophyllene, which is also found in lesser concentrations in Black Pepper and Melissa essential oils. With its affinity for binding to and activating cannabinoid 2 receptors (CB2), beta-caryophyllene has promise for countless health benefits5. Research suggests that when ingested, the sesquiterpene has benefits ranging from possible antioxidant properties to supporting the health of vital organs6. The possible health benefits of this natural CB2 agonist are extraordinary, but when it comes to promoting health, Mother Nature always seems to get it right. This is why doTERRA has chosen to not isolate beta-caryophyllene, but to offer the essential oil in its whole, natural state in any easy-to-use form. Take 2 Copaiba Softgels in the morning, with a whole food breakfast and your doTERRA Lifelong Vitality Pack®, or as needed, to take your health to the next level.
