Why Elixinol includes MCT oil in our tinctures

By | Health effects of cannabinoids, Uncategorized | No Comments

Your body performs better when you give it clean-burning fuel, right? That’s why so many bodybuilders, who want to decrease body fat and increase lean muscle mass, and other people trying to lose weight, (or who are simply focused on good health) are taking medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil.

What, exactly, is MCT oil? According to WebMD:

Medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) are partially man-made fats. The name refers to the way the carbon atoms are arranged in their chemical structure. MCTs are generally made by processing coconut and palm kernel oils in the laboratory. Usual dietary fats, by comparison, are long-chain triglycerides. People use MCTs as medicine.

MCTs are used along with usual medications for treating food absorption disorders including diarrhea, steatorrhea (fat indigestion), celiac disease, liver disease, and digestion problems due to partial surgical removal of the stomach (gastrectomy) or the intestine (short bowel syndrome).

MCTs are also used for “milky urine” (chyluria) and a rare lung condition called chylothorax. Other uses include treatment of gallbladder disease, AIDS, cystic fibrosis, Alzheimer’s disease, and seizures in children.

Because it’s a good fat that increases bioavailability, Elixinol includes MCT oil in all of our tinctures.

For anyone concerned about blood sugar levels, inflammation and fat burning, MCT provides a host of benefits — especially when combined with cannabidiol (CBD).

 A little more background: MCT is comprised primarily of Caprylic and capric fatty acids (Carbon 8s), so it converts to ketones (providing energy faster).  Further, MCT oil does not go through the lymphatic system. It is transported directly to the liver and metabolized there, so it releases energy like a carbohydrate. Yet while it behaves like a energy-packed carbohydrate rather than a fat, MCT oil does so without causing free-radical damage. It also releases ketones, which can be used for fuel for the body.

In conjunction with CBD, which shifts the metabolism away from glycolysis (burning sugar) and more towards fatty-acid metabolism, MCT acts to aid in fact burning. As the body’s endocannabinoid system self-regulates and normalizes, metabolism can improve.
