MCT OIL

TOP BENEFITS OF MCT OIL

        • Improve gut health [3]
        • Reduces cholesterol level [4]
        • Improve brain function [6]

WHAT IS MCT OIL?

MCT (Medium Chain Triglycerides) oil is created from medium-chain triglycerides, a form of fat. A procedure known as fractionation is used to extract MCT oil from coconut or palm kernel oil. This concentrates the MCT by separating it from the original oil [1].

 

MCT molecules are smaller than those found in the majority of fats you consume (long-chain triglycerides [LCT]). This makes them more digestible.

 

Most fatty acids are long-chain, meaning they have 13 to 21 carbon atoms, whereas short-chain fatty acids have fewer than six. However, medium-chain fatty acids, such as MCT, have six to twelve carbon atoms. Medium-chain triglycerides are easier for the liver to absorb than long-chain triglycerides because they are smaller fat molecules [2].

 

MCT is easily absorbed into your circulation, which then converts it into usable energy. Coconut or palm kernel oil is commonly used to make MCT oil, and MCT is present in both. MCT oil can be 100 percent MCT or a blend of MCT and LCT.
