MCT Oil Liquid Overview
Try 100% Pure MCT Oil from NOW Foods, an interesting and beneficial type of fat. MCT's occur naturally in plant oils like those from coconuts and palm. Because they metabolize differently than other types of fats, you shouldn't think of MCT's in the same way you regard other far more unhealthy fats. MCT's are metabolized quickly in the liver, and are mostly used for immediate energy production and very unlikely to be stored as additional body fat. So people use MCT Oil to add healthy fats to protein shakes and sometimes as a race fuel for endurance athletes. NOW Foods always uses the highest-quality raw materials and methods, making their MCT Oil a great choice.
MCT Oil Liquid Description from Now
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.
