The Benefits of MCTs
Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) are fats that are naturally found in coconut and palm kernel oils. They’re more easily and rapidly digested than other types of fats. MCTs are readily absorbed from the GI tract and are metabolized very quickly by the liver, where they are reported to encourage the use of fat for energy rather than for storage.* Numerous studies suggest that substituting MCT oil for other fats in a healthy diet may therefore help to support healthy weight and body composition.*
The body processes MCTs differently than it does other types of fat. MCTs go straight to the liver from the GI tract, where they’re used for energy or turned into ketones, which can have therapeutic effects on a variety of brain disorders.* Because MCTs are so efficiently metabolized, they’re less likely to be stored as fat.* In fact, substituting MCT oil for other fats in a healthy diet may help support weight management.*
If you’re looking for a healthy fat that can help support weight management and provide a quick source of energy, look no further than medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs). MCTs are readily absorbed and metabolized by the body, making them an ideal addition to a healthy diet. Plus, MCT supplementation has been shown to offer a host of other health benefits, including decreased brain fog, improved exercise performance, and reduced lactate buildup. Give them a try today and see how MCTs can help support your health goals!
