Premium MCT Gold Description from Ultimate Nutrition
Intense exercise on a regular basis can induce muscle fatigue. Thus, people are recognizing more and more that carbohydrates are an essential factor in preventing muscle fatigue. Carbohydrates, especially refined sugars, are not an ideal source of immediate energy needed to maintain an exercise regimen. Medium chain triglycerides (MCTs), however, can help the athlete develop stamina and endurance.
Medium chain triglycerides are actually not carbohydrates. MCTs are important fatty acids that provide energy exactly as do carbohydrates. Also known as caprylic and capric acids, MCTs function differently from conventional fats, in that less fat is absorbed in the body. During intense exercise, MCTs prevent the breakdown of muscle tissue since they produce the so-called ketones, which are used directly by the muscle to produce energy and reduce muscle loss. Conventional fats do not produce many ketones. In addition, MCTs are quickly absorbed and circulate in the bloodstream, and they do not produce fatigue as is common with the consumption of simple sugars.
