MCT? WHAT’S THAT? Well, to put it as succinctly as possible, MCT oil is a carrier for CBD, which helps your system assimilate the CBD more efficiently. The MCT initials stand from ‘medium-chain fats’. These are saturated fat acids called triglycerides. They are easily and quickly digested, and are burned by the body so that they don’t turn into fat.
Well-known sources of MCT oils are coconut oil, palm oil, avocados, olive, sesame, and soybean – all well-regarded and healthy foods. MCT oil is also often added to salad dressings and smoothies. There are often special coffee mixes which contain MCT.
We make no medical claims, but research and anecdotal opinion have both cited MCT as being of benefit in:
- Maintaining a healthy weight
- Boosting the immune system
- Improving digestion
- Balancing hormones
- Reducing stored body fat
- Fighting bacteria and viruses
When you ingest CBD in foodstuffs such as Haughton Honey the presence of MCT allows your body to get maximum benefit from the CBD. It appears to be efficacious in itself, but is also a great facilitator so that you get the maximum boost from your CBD-infused honey.
