The secrets of MCT oil
We’ve included MCT Oil as a carrier oil in our hero range of CBD oils, so let’s dive in and get the lowdown on all things MCT.
What is MCT oil?
Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) are fats found in foods like coconut oil.
MCT oil is a supplement that contains a lot of these fats and is suggested to have several health benefits.
MCT and CBD
MCT acts like any fat or lipid as it enhances the absorption of CBD.
MCT oil helps improve the stability of CBD products, as well as deliver CBD in a convenient format.
MCTs travel straight from the gut to the liver and do not require bile to break down like longer-chain fats do.
Since MCTs easily enter your cells without being broken down, they can be used as an immediate source of energy.
MCTs can be converted into ketones, which are produced from the breakdown of fat when carb intake is low.
If you’re following a keto diet, then taking MCT oil can help you stay in the fat-burning state known as ketosis.
Popularity with Athletes
There’s some evidence that MCT can raise the amount of energy used by your muscles.
MCT oil is thought to increase fat burning and reduce the need for carbs during exercise.
