MCT Oil - 100% Pure Overview
Body First’s 100% Pure MCT Oil is a premium blend of medium-chain triglycerides consisting of caprylic and capric acids. Upon digestion, MCT’s are quickly transported to the liver where they are available to be used as energy by the body. Regular consumption of MCT Oil can support a lean and healthy physique by replacing less productive calories in your diet with quality calories. MCT Oil is commonly used as part of a low-carb, ketogenic or body recomposition diet in which fat loss and muscle tone retention are primary objectives. *
MCT’s have been separately researched for improvements in both athletic performance and lean body mass composition. Although the data suggested slight increases in athletic performance for already high-calorie diets, MCT’s were found to significantly boost fat loss and aid in muscle retention during periods of dieting. This is thought to be because MCT’s are highly ketogenic and don’t illicit a strong insulin response.
MCT Oil is a great addition to a diet rich in healthy fats and high in protein and can support fat loss and improved muscle tone. Therefore it is suggested to use MCT’s as part of a healthy weight management or lean muscle-gaining. If you’re looking to cut excess body fat and keep muscles toned, MCT’s are a great choice to supplement a healthy diet and exercise program. *

MCT Oil - 100% Pure Description from Body First
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.
