MCT OIL – Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) are fats that are naturally found in coconut and palm kernel oil. MCTs are more easily and rapidly digested than other types of fats, as they require lower amounts of enzymes and bile acids for intestinal absorption.
Compared to other types of oils and fats, MCTs seem to have positive effects on fat burning and weight reduction. As part of a healthy diet, MCT oil may help increase satiety and even raise the metabolic rate at which the body functions.
MCTs may help aid the development of metabolic syndrome — a term given to a cluster of metabolic disorders such as abdominal obesity, dyslipidemia, hypertension and impaired fasting glucose levels.
Beneficial for balancing bacteria in the gut, which in turn has positive effects on digestive symptoms, energy expenditure, and the ability to absorb vitamins and minerals from the foods you eat. Medium-chain fats may help kill a wide range of pathogenic viruses and strains and bacteria that cause digestive issues.
Your brain is largely made up of fatty acids, so you need a steady supply from your diet to feel your best, think clearly, perform well at work and stay sharp well into older age.
Medium-chain fats are believed to be one of the most easily digested, utilized and protective fatty acids that exists.
