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
-Spares Lean Body Tissue
Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) are fats that are naturally found in coconut and palm kernel oil. MCT's are more easily digested and rapidly digested than other types of fats, as they require lower amounts of enzymes and bile acids for intestinal absorption. MCTs are metabolized very quickly in the liver and are reported to encourage an increase in energy expenditure, while decreasing fat storage. Numerous studies suggest that substituting MCT Oil for other facts in a healthy diet may therefore help to support healthy weight and body composition.
