TWINLAB MCT Fuel is a high-octane "human machine oil" containing
emulsified medium-chain triglycerides (MCT's) and emulsified
natural vitamin E. MCT's are lipids composed of medium-chain
fatty acids. These unique lipids provide more than twice the
energy power of carbohydrates and protein, and are less likely
to turn into body fat than are long chain fatty acids. MCT's
are an alternative energy source which is readily utilizable and
can reduce muscle protein breakdown during wound healing or
during recovery from burns. These are catabolic conditions where
muscles breakdown exceeds muscle growth. Similarly, prolonged,
exhaustive exercise and dieting (restricting caloric intake) is
also a catabolic state in which muscle protein is beining broken
down in order to provide metabolic energy. This would suggest
that as an alternative energy source, MCT's may benefit some
athletes and those athletes restricting carbohydrates and
calories in the diet. TWINLAB MCT Fuel is a revolutionary new
emulsified MCT (medium-chain triglyceride) oil that has been
developed for quicker and easier assimilation and for those
people who could never tolerate the taste of ordinary MCT oil.
No chemical emulsifiers are used in MCT Fuel. Only small amounts
of natural lecithin and apple pectin, nature's natural
emulsifiers, are used in its production. MCT Fuel has a
delicious, 100% natural orange flavor. It also does not have the
undesirable oily taste like ordinary MCT oil. "High-octane"
energy boost. Many athletes have become accustomed to taking
carbohydrate drinks to fuel themselves through a workout. But
many bodybuilders follow low-carbohydrate, high-protein diets to
accelerate fat burning and to remove excess fluid from tissues
in order to get ripped with striated and well-defined muscles,
ruling out the use of high carbohydrate drinks. MCT Fuel can be
used as a quick-acting, highly concentrated energy source and
alternative to high carbohydrate energy drinks for those
bodybuilders on low-carbohydrate, high-protein diets.
