Your digestive system breaks down what you eat and drink so it can be used by your body. Digestion of fats begins in the mouth, but the majority of the process takes place in the small intestine.
Bile is produced to help break down the large fat molecules so they can move into your mucosa, where they get turned into larger molecules, are then delivered to your bloodstream and carried to your fat deposits.
Should you need energy from fat, your body makes a withdrawal and uses some of that fat. If that seems like an involved process to use the fat you’re eating, you are correct.
MCTs, on the other hand, bypass most of that. They don’t require bile to be broken down because they’re shorter than other fats and they’re transported directly to the bloodstream through your portal vein.
All this means is that you can quickly get energy from medium chain triglycerides and your body won’t add them to your love handles (unless you’re consuming an overabundance of calories).
MCTs or Medium Chain Triglycerides, burns in the body as a pure energy source far more efficiently than proteins, starches, or sugars.
Allergies Season
High number of people every year experience the common chronic health conditions of allergies. It is common that those with family history of allergies are at a higher risk of developing allergies throughout their lives.  Some of the allergies could be skin type, breathing conditions to environment, foods, and topical products. 

When the immune system is being affected the reaction is allergies in different forms. The substance can be small as dust, mold or pollen, where the immune system automatically producing antibodies attacking the mentioned allergens.  Some of the noticeable symptoms would be runny nose, itching eyes, watery eyes or any other symptoms.

What is the immune system?

The role of the immune system is to defend itself and keep foreign microorganism, bacteria, fungi and viruses , outside the body and destroy any microorganism that is infectious invading the body.  The composition of the immune system is made up of a network of cells and organs to protect the body from infections.

The immune system s made up of lymphocytes, white blood cells which acts as defending troop against microorganism that can cause allergies.  The network is made up of lymphatic vessels, blood vessels which are part of the lymphoid organs. The lymphatic vessels are in charge of moving lymphocytes to and from the different body parts.

These are the lymph organs in our bodies:
  • Adenoids: two glands located at the back of the nasal passages
  • The appendix: a small tube that is connected to the large intestine
  • Blood vessels: the arteries, veins and capillaries through which blood flows
  • Bone marrow: the soft, fatty tissue found in bone cavities
  • Lymph nodes: small organs shaped like beans, which are located throughout the body and connect via the lymphatic vessels
  • Lymphatic vessels: a network of channels throughout the body that carries lymphocytes to the lymphoid organs and bloodstream
  • Peyer's patches: lymphoid tissue in the small intestine
  • Spleen: a fist-sized organ located in the abdominal cavity
  • Thymus: two lobes that join in front of the trachea behind the breast bone
  • Tonsils: two oval masses in the back of the throat
It is evident that allergies can affect anyone, regardless of age, gender, race and cultural backgrounds. Allergies can start as early as childhood and then continue or aggravate as they get older due to hormones, environmental irritants, foods, habits. 

It is evident that a way to help allergies symptoms is by keeping the lymph nodes drained to reduce the allergies attacks, sinus problems or congestion. Lymphatic Drainage Massage helps the body heal itself and do what it's intended to do. To boost the immune system we suggest that a 30 minutes of Lymphatic Drainage Massage on the face is the best way to reduce allergy attacks this season.

A major part of being healthy is to ensure that any toxins that enter our system are effectively identified by the body and escorted out in a harmless fashion. There are many systems, organs, and glands in place to make sure this occurs, but unfortunately, many of them have become clogged and compromised to the point of complete dysfunction. One of those important systems that aid in the removal of toxins and has become clogged in many ways, is the lymphatic system.

Purpose of the lymphatic system and signs it is clogged

The lymphatic system is a complex drainage or “sewer” system that consists of glands, lymph nodes, the spleen, thymus gland, and tonsils. Its role is to cleanse our cells by absorbing excess fluids, fats, and toxins from our tissues and into the blood where it can eventually be filtered out by the liver and kidneys.

Some of the signs are:
  • Skin conditions
  • Arthritis
  • Unexplained injuries
  • Excess weight or cellulite
  • Headaches
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Sinus infections
  • Digestive disorders
  • Enlarged lymph nodes
Ways to help the lymphatic system decongest:

  • Exercise
  • Acupuncture 
  • Manual lymphatic massage 
  • Infrared sauna-Biomat 
  • Hot and cold showers
  • Dry skin brushing
