Description

Benefits of M.C.T.

  • MCTs are absorbed intact and taken to the liver, where they are used directly for energy
  • MCTs do not require bile salts for digestion and therefore may be a useful fat substitute for individuals that have trouble digesting long chain fats
  • Several small studies suggest that a diet supplemented with medium chain triglycerides may reduce weight and body fat more than a diet supplemented with long chain triglycerides
  • Recent research has found favorable results with MCTs from coconut oil and cognitive performance

M.C.T. Liquid may be a useful dietary supplement for individuals wishing to supplement their diet with medium chain triglycerides for healthy fat consumption, cognitive support or weight management.
