MCT Oil - Brain & Body Fuel
MCT, or medium-chain triglycerides, are special types of saturated fats that are derived from coconut and palm oils. Unlike long-chain triglycerides, MCTs are used by the body quickly and easily for energy production.
Research has found that consuming MCTs can discourage fat storage and encourage fat burning. Other findings have suggested that they may aid in reducing LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels. They may also protect against cardiovascular disease and improve blood glucose levels in people with diabetes.
Some recent studies suggests that MCTs have a positive effect on cognitive function in people with suspected Alzheimer's disease or dementia. Positive correlations have been found in research that are promising.
Because LCTs are larger and more difficult to use, they are naturally stored in the body. MCTs are more easily absorbed and used by the body thanks to their smaller size. This makes MCTs a great, natural energy source, and Medium Chain Triglyceride Oil can be a fantastic aid in your weight management routines and fitness regimens!**
Since MCT Oil is so versatile, you can use it to make salad dressings, sauces or anywhere in your cooking that could use a nutritional boost of beneficial essential fatty acids! MCT Oil has a low boiling point, and is not recommended for use in frying.
