MCT Oil - What is it?

We use MCT oil in some of our products as a carrier oil to our broad spectrum CBD oil. You can find it in our 5% CBD oil and in our 10mg CBD soft gels. Made from sustainably sourced coconut it not only tastes great but also has some amazing benefits.

MCT oil is a supplement made from a type of fat called medium-chain triglycerides.Triglycerides are the molecules that make up most fats, but MCT molecules are smaller than those in most of the fats you eat (long-chain triglycerides LCT).  MCTs are easier for the body to metabolise quickly, giving you energy you can use and it means they are less likely to be stored as fat.

MCTs can also be turned into molecules called ketones.  Some recent initial studies* have shown that ketones can help burn fat, curb cravings and power your brain. If you are following a lower-carb, high-fat diet like the ketogenic diet, supplementing your diet with MCT oil can ensure you are getting enough fat to stay in ketosis - That’s the state in which your body burns fat, rather than carbohydrates, for fuel.

We like the MCT oils ketone boosting effect and it also helps you feel fuller, longer and boost your brain power. Together with the great benefits of our broad spectrum CBD oil with all of its natural minerals, flavonoids and terpenes it is a perfect combination and ideal to add to your morning cup or post workout shake.
