- Spares Lean Body Tissues
Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT’s) are fats that are naturally found in coconut and palm kernel oil. MCT’s are more easily and rapidly digested than other types of fats, as they require lower amounts of enzymes and bile acids for intestinal absorption. MCT’s are metabolized very quickly in the liver and are reported to encourage energy expenditure, and not fat storage. Numerous studies suggest that substituting MCT Oil for other fats in a healthy diet may therefore help to support healthy weight and body composition.
As a dietary supplement, take 1 tablespoon 1 to 3 times daily. MCT Oil can also be used as a substitute for conventional oils in salad dressings, sauces, or cooking as a source of beneficial fatty acids. Not recommended for use in frying due to low boiling point.
MCT Oil from coconut/palm kernel oil.
