Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) are naturally occurring fats that are rapidly absorbed by the body and used for energy.
The majority of fat in our diet is made up of long-chain fatty acids, which are found in most of the processed foods, vegetable and soy oils. In contrast, the medium-chain fatty acids in MCTs contain metabolize much more quickly and differently to the Long Chain Triglycerides (LCT). These shorter chain fatty acids are sent directly to the liver where they are almost entirely burned for fuel. Because the calories contained in MCTs are more efficiently turned into energy and used by the body, they’re less likely to be stored as fat.
MCTs can also be converted into ketones, which are produced from the breakdown of fat when carbohydrate is low. If you’re following a ketogenic diet, which is very low in carbs yet high in fat, taking MCT oil could possibly help you stay in the fat-burning state known as ketosis.
Including MCT in your post-workout shakes may help prevent muscle catabolism (break down), improve protein synthesis and reduce recovery time. However, you can also add it to your recipes.
• MCTs can boost metabolism, helping you to burn calories and lose fat.
• MCTs can improve your ability to burn other dietary fats.
• MCTs can also encourage ketosis, an important fat-burning state.
Whether you’re following a low carb or keto diet or simply looking for a quality source of healthy fats to support your performance and energy levels, Medium Chain Triglycerides powder is the perfect option.
Add 10g of Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) powder to a shaker or a glass filled with 200-300ml of cold water or juice.
