Product of the month – MCT
Did you know that MCT also known as Medium Chain Triglycerides is a fatty acid found naturally in coconut oil and palm oils? MCT oil is saturated meaning medium chain fatty acids are absorbed in the small intestinal tract and transported directly to the liver where they are used as energy.
The two main energy sources in the body are glucose and ketones. Most people burn glucose from a steady consumption of sugars and proteins, but when one goes on a low-carb diet the energy source is switched to fat.
Consumption of MCT oil increases ketone body production. Medium Chain Triglycerides help to stabilize blood sugar, insulin levels and improve metabolism.
Improves Metabolism & Mental Health
According to an article, The Use of Medium-Chain Triglycerides in Gastrointestinal Disorders published in Nutrition Issues in Gastroenterology, Series #160, found MCTs have been recommended to reduce obesity.
When compared to long chain triglycerides, MCTs reduced total body fat by increasing energy causing a reduction in food consumption. Ultimately, decreasing fat reserve in adipose tissue.
