Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT Oils) are naturally occurring fats that are rapidly absorbed by the body and used for energy.
MCT Oils are a superior energy source
MCTs are unique as they're shorter chains than other fat sources. Because of this they're easily absorbed and digested making them a more readily available energy source. MCTs mimic the function of carbohydrates as they deliver energy, but unlike carbohydrates, they can also help to build lean muscle, burn fat and they also play a key role in the production of ATP.
They're especially beneficial for fuelling physical exertion given their high energy density content, rapid rate of absorption and quick metabolic conversion into cellular energy. Additionally, MCT Oil is beneficial post workout to prevent muscle breakdown and assist with muscle growth.
What's the difference between MCT Oil and Coconut Oil? Well, Coconut Oil does contain MCTs, however the predominant MCT in coconut oil is Lauric Acid (C12). While Lauric Acid is technically a MCT it acts more like a Long Chain Triglyceride as it can take longer to digest than other MCTs like Caprylic acid (C8) and Capric acid (C10).
Our MCT Oil contains Caprylic acid and Capric acid to ensure the fastest energy delivery possible.
Build muscle, burn fat
Supplementing with MCT Oil may assist with weight loss as it can help to suppress appetite and reduce cravings by increasing the feeling of satiation. Our MCT Oil is also lower in calories than other fats and unlike MCT powders is completely carb free.
Ideal for those following a keto or high-fat diet, our MCT oil is a great source of healthy fats and can help maintain the state of ketosis.
Adding MCT Oil to coffee
Tasteless and odourless, MCT Oil can be added to any meal to enhance its nutritional profile - in fact, it's the perfect accompaniment to your morning brew.
Combined with the stimulatory effects of coffee, MCT Oil can provide a much needed morning kick to get the body and brain ready for the day ahead. This combo also makes a great pre workout drink.
You can take MCT Oil as a shot, or go all out and add it to a smoothie or use it as a salad dressing. However you use MCT Oil, you'll be taking advantage of the variety of benefits it has to offer.
