Bioavailability of MCT
At Shyne botanicals we are devoted to optimizing the advantages of our MCT based products to offer the maximum amount of restoration and rejuvenation in the body-mind complex. This Blog explains why MCT oil is a magnificent carrier oil for our line of tinctures.
MCT oil provides the body with sources of energy, immunity boosters, and accelerators of metabolic health as well as a healthy weight maintainer.
Medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) are natural oil molecules that contain medium-length chains of fats called triglycerides. Due to their shorter length, MCT’s are more easily digested than longer-chain fatty acids found in many other foods. Once absorbed MCT follows the venous system and is delivered to the liver directly where it can be oxidized and quickly absorbed by the body. What remains turns into Keytones – the chemicals produced when the liver breaks fats down into fuel. Keytones are different from other forms other fatty acids because they have the ability to reroute from blood to the brain like sugar does. When CBD is suspended in MCT, it travels these fast tracks.
Bioavailability is the percentage of a dose that reaches the bloodstream – meaning more of the substance will be processed within the body.
When taking supplements or medication sometimes not all of the body can implement it. Problems to absorb such as food intake or simultaneous medications can alter the efficiency. MCT is a tried and true binding agent for CBD.
If you are interested about how to increase bioavailability, evaluate a new dosing practice. Rather than having CBD enter your metabolic system, ingest the oil sublingually. Sublingual, is a technique of distributing substances via the mouth in such a manner that the substances are rapidly absorbed under the tongue. This provides direct access and impacts the system quickly and efficiently.
