Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) are a unique group of fatty acids found in fresh coconuts. MCT oil is primarily composed of capric and caprylic, unique fatty acids that support energy production.*
When consumed, MCTs produce ketone bodies which promote fat metabolism by breaking large molecules into smaller ones. In fact, a study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition comparing MCTs and LCTs (long-chain triglycerides) showed that MCTs boosted metabolism by 12%, leading to 53 more calories burned after meals.*
FUEL FOR ENERGY
Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) are a source of clean fuel for the body. MCTs can be found naturally in Coconut Oil, Palm Kernel Oil, and various dairy products. Supplementing with MCT Oil can provide a healthy source of energy for metabolism, and is especially useful for calorie restricted diets.*
MCTs are easily digested, and offer immediate fuel for energy rather than becoming calories stored as fat. Using MCT Oil as fuel can help satisfy cravings. MCT Oil can be easily added to your daily routine as a source of clean fuel:
Add a serving of MCT Oil in your morning coffee for sustained energy.
Improve the nutritional profile of your smoothie by adding MCT Oil.
Add a healthy boost to your favorite salad dressing by substituting traditional oils with MCT Oil.
