MCT Oil: Information
Medium Chain Triglycerides (or MCT's) are a type of fat that is more easily digested and more rapidly metabolized for energy than other types of fats. MCT's are naturally-occurring in coconut and palm kernel oils.
Health Benefits of MCT Oil
Studies suggest that the fast-metabolizing properties of MCT Oil increase thermogenesis and reduce body fat accumulation1, without out any adverse effects on cholesterol or blood lipids. MCT Oil may help increase energy and endurance while enhancing the results of diet and exercise.
Using MCT Oil Supplements
MCT's are used as non-stimulant way to encourage an increase in energy expenditure. Endurance athletes and busy people who burn the candle at both ends can use MCT Oil products in their shakes in addition to using MCT-rich coconut oil in the kitchen.
