What is MCT Oil?

"MCT" stands for medium-chain triglycerides, which are a type of fatty acid in coconut oil. Unlike most other fats, which are long chain triglycerides (LCT), MCT are digested faster which provides the body with quick energy and therefore there is a decreased chance of fat storage. 

How is MCT oil used?

MCT oil is used to decrease body fat levels and often used as part of the ketogenic diet. MCTs are either used as an instant source of energy or turned into ketones in the liver, which is produced when the liver breaks down fat. Since MCTs are used quickly as energy, they are less likely to be stored as fat. The primary ways in which MCT oil assists with weight loss include: appetite suppression, decreased fat storage, and increased ketosis. 

Are there other benefits to MCT oil?

MCT oil may also assist in managing healthy cholesterol levels, diabetes, and brain function
