Benefits of CBD-Infused Coconut Oil
Epic Relief’s product, CBD-Infused Liquid Coconut (MCT) Oil, was released to the market in November of 2018. The dietary supplement can be ingested when mixed with coffee, tea, smoothies, salad dressings, or simply dropped under the tongue. The CBD-Infused Liquid Coconut Oil contains 10 mg of cannabidiol (CBD), and 30 servings per vile.
What is MCT oil?
Medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) are a type of fat that is found in coconut oil, palm kernel oil, and dairy products. Due to their shorter length of chains of fats (called triglycerides), MCT’s are easily digestible with benefits associated with the way the body breaks down the fats.
The oil is a colorless, odorless liquid that remains in its liquid form at room temperature.
So, what are the benefits of using Epic Relief CBD-Infused Liquid Coconut (MCT) Oil?
Promotes weight loss
MCT oil has been scientifically proven to increase hormones that promote the feeling of fullness, and reduce the desire to consume extra food.
Additionally, research has shown that a diet enhanced with MCT may “aid in the prevention of obesity or potentially stimulate weight loss.”

2) Can be used to increase brain functionality
When ingested, MCT’s bypass the digestive tract and go straight to the liver, where they’re broken down into ketones, which are used as energy for the body and brain. As the MCT oil is absorbed and transported through the body, the ketones pass through the blood-brain barrier, which become an advantageous source of energy for the brain.
3) Improved performance when training
Research has shown ingesting MCT’s can have a positive impact on “moderate- and high-intensity exercise in recreational athletes” when used as a supplement in a pre-workout drink or smoothie. The study also showed blood lactate concentrations were lower in athletes who consumed MCT-containing foods, which “extends the duration of subsequent high-intensity exercise.”
4) Benefits the immune system
Medium-chain fatty acids, like MCT, have been shown to have antimicrobial effects, which is an agent that stops the growth of microorganisms, or flat out kills them. Additionally, MCT’s have also been shown to exhibit properties that fight other harmful bacteria, viruses, fungi, and protozoa.
Whether you’re looking to lose weight, improve brain functions, have a better workout, or improve overall gut health, Epic Relief can be a great addition to a dietary regimen.
