Seleno Health MCB Oil.jpg

MCB OIL

MCB Oil is the world's first and only pure MCB oil on the market that supports the ECS (endocannabinoid system) and is derived entirely from plant extracts.

 

This unique product is created with the same high-quality Andean Maca that is used in the maca powders but at 100 times the concentration, providing you with all of its incredible benefits in a convenient and more potent form.

 

Seleno Health MCB Oil is pure, organic, and 100x extracted to contain 26 concentrated plant compounds with CB2 affinity and entourage effects.

 

One of the key benefits of the MCB Oil is its sublingual administration. This means that instead of being ingested and going through the digestive system, the oil is placed under the tongue, which can be absorbed directly into the bloodstream. This results in faster and more potent absorption, allowing you to experience the benefits more quickly and effectively.

 

Not only is the MCB Oil a great alternative or complement to CB oil, but it is also infused with entourage-enhancing terpenes. These compounds work together to enhance the effects of the plant compounds, including macamides, and provide even more excellent benefits for your overall health and well-being.

 

It is produced through a proprietary, patent-pending process to concentrate the maca without using solvents like hexane, ethylene dichloride, and acetone.

 

This powerful oil can help nourish your body's systems by supporting healthy levels of anandamide, also known as the "bliss" molecule, which can support a healthy stress response.

Dosage:

For beginners, we recommend starting with three drops three times a day for the first 5 days and gradually increasing by adding 1-2 extra drops every 5 days until you reach your desired dosage. It is essential to listen to your body and adjust accordingly. Most people find 10-20 drops per day to be a sufficient dose.

Timing

TIME AND DOSAGE

Maca is deeply nourishing and supportive of your body.

This means it takes time to receive the full benefits. It takes about three months to feel the full effects.

Taking it for just a week or even a month will most likely not yield the benefits you are looking for.

It's very important to take the full dosage of maca each day. Skipping lots of days or only taking a small amount of maca is not going to get you the results you desire.

While the dosages we use may seem higher than other brands, this is because we know the importance of getting enough of the beneficial compounds to have a therapeutic effect.

The vast majority of maca products and the dosage they recommend do not supply adequate amounts of macamides and other important compounds. 

Don't sell your health short; take the right dose for the right amount of time and experience the full benefits that this incredible plant has to offer!
