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.
