MCTs (medium chain triglycerides) are a powerful energy source from fats that are used by those following a low-carb ketogenic (e.g. Banting) diet. MCTs occur naturally in coconut and palm kernel oil. Lifematrix Coconut MCT oil is made only from coconuts.
– They are used as a natural performance enhancer by athletes and bodybuilders
– They are anti-inflammatory in addition to providing instant and sustainable energy
– Used in weight loss programmes to improve metabolism and thyroid function as well as increase the number of calories burnt (thermogenic effect)
– Diabetics may also benefit from including MCT oil in their diets as it improves blood sugar regulation
Lecithin is a fat that is essential in the cells of the body. It can be found in many foods, including soybeans and egg yolks. Lecithin is taken as a medicine and is also used in the manufacturing of medicines. Lecithin is used for treating memory disorders such as dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
Decarboxylation is the process that activates compounds in cannabis such as THC. All cannabinoids contained within the trichomes of raw cannabis flowers have an extra carboxyl ring or group (COOH) attached to their chain.
Does Decarboxylation Destroy CBD? No, decarboxylation does not ruin cannabidiol (CBD). On the contrary, decarboxylation is actually necessary to ensure that the CBD is activated. As with THC, the raw cannabis plant does not contain CBD molecules.
Instead, it contains cannabidiolic acid (CBDA), which does not interact with your body the same way that CBD does. To convert that CBDA into CBD, the compound that gives consumers a number of positive therapeutic effects, you need to decarboxylate your weed first.
