In the past, MCT’s were believed to be unhealthy due to its high saturated fat content. However, it has now been proven that medium chain triglycerides are unlike any other fat on Earth and has high nutritional value. So, why is MCT fat different? MCT’s are a unique fat molecule; this is what makes it’s fat different from most fats we consume.
Fats constitute the most significant nutritional source of energy. Their proper use by the body conditions a number of complex mechanisms of digestion, absorption, distribution, and metabolism. These mechanisms are facilitated by fats made of medium chain fatty acids (MCFA); therefore, they are an easy and quick source of energy.
A quality supply of medium chain triglycerides (MCT) is important for digestion and absorption.
MCT’s have many benefits and have also been shown to play a role in reducing weight, decreasing metabolic syndrome, reducing abdominal obesity (stomach fat) and even inflammation. Also, if you are on the Paleo or ketogenic diet, or simply prefer to burn ketone bodies for fuel, rather than glucose, because of the medium chain triglycerides, our MCT oil powder is more ketogenic than standard long-chain triglycerides (LCT). And unlike regular fatty acids, ketones can cross from the blood to the brain. This provides an alternative energy source for the brain, which ordinarily uses glucose for fuel. Another amazing benefit of MCT’s and ketones.
Medium-chain triglycerides, inulin, sodium caseinate (a milk derivative), contains 2% or less of each of the following: silicon dioxide, sunflower lecithin.
