MCT’s are medium-chain triglycerides, a form of saturated fatty acid that has numerous health benefits, ranging from boosting metabolism to providing a dose of energy throughout the day. MCT’s are typically found in coconut oil at a smaller percentage, however Nutricost has extracted the MCT’s for a pure oil supplement for maximum benefit*.
Medium Chain Fatty Acids are typically comprised of several types with varying lengths of carbons attached to a hydrogen; Caproic acid, Caprylic Acid, Capric Acid, and Lauric Acid. What makes MCT fatty acids so beneficial? Medium-chain fats are digested easily and sent directly to the liver, where they have a thermogenic effect and the ability to positively alter your metabolism. Since MCT’s are processed in the liver, they are absorbed quickly and provide fast and sustained energy. Unlike almost all other energy sources, MCT’s do not require energy to be absorbed, stored, or used in the body, making them an almost perfect source of natural energy.
MCT’s have been attributed to assisting in weight loss, aside from providing energy. MCT oil can help increase satiety and even raise the metabolic rate by suppressing fat deposition through enhanced thermogenesis and fat oxidation. It does this by helping the liver produce ketones, an althernative fuel source compared to glucose. Using ketones primes the body for burning fatty acids, which contributes to weight loss.
While many MCT’s are typically found in oil form, having a powdered supplement has many benefits. It can be added to baking products, smoothies, and shakes, allowing for endless possibilities.
