Medium Chain Triglyceride (MCT) Coconut Oil
MCT oil is a type of fat which, paradoxically, does not make us fat. Rather, it is immediately used as energy and improves mental focus and sleep quality.
Our MCT (medium chain triglyceride) oil consists 100% of capric and caprylic acid (C8 and C10). It has no odor, no taste and is easy to swallow. It can be added to your diet easily in order to support your health.
It is the most BIOACTIVE form of coconut oil and provides roughly six times more MCTs than coconut oil.
While caprylic acid is more potent, the mixture of C8 and C10 is more gentle on digestion (and on the wallet!) yet still highly effective in providing the ketone boost to your body.
The long chain oil in coconut oil can be stored as fat, whereas C8 and C10 are available immediately to be used as energy.
Benefits of MCT Oil
Can Help with Weight Loss or Maintenance
Compared to other types of oils and fats, MCTs seem to have positive effects on fat burning and weight reduction.
As part of a healthy diet, MCT oil can help increase satiety and even raise the metabolic rate at which the body functions. Does this mean eating large amounts of MCTs daily will make you drop pounds? Not quite. Not every study has shown that MCTs can produce weight loss necessarily, but some definitely have shown the positive effects of MCTs on metabolic function.
Improves Energy Levels and Mood
our brain is largely made up of fatty acids, so you need a steady supply from your diet to feel your best, think clearly, perform well at work and stay sharp well into older age.
Medium-chain fats are believed to be one of the most easily digested, utilized and protective fatty acids that exists.
Supports Digestion and Nutrient Absorption
Both MCT oil and coconut oil are beneficial for balancing bacteria in the gut microbiota, which in turn has positive effects on the digestive symptom, energy expenditure, and the ability to absorb vitamins and minerals from the foods you eat. Medium-chain fats can help kill a wide range of pathogenic viruses, strains and bacteria that cause digestive issues, including candida, constipation, diarrhea, food poisoning, stomachaches and so on.
Can Withstand High-Heat Cooking
MCT oils are particularly good for cooking because they have a high “smoke point,” meaning they don’t oxidize from heat easily and can withstand high temperatures.
