MCT Oil contains caprylic as well as capric acids, which rank among the exceptional medium-chain fats. Unlike traditional oils, it is digested quickly and immediately available as a source of energy for the body to fuel any action. MCT Oil is therefore very popular among athletes as well as people who receive most of their energy from fats. It is also ideal for all fans of keto, low-carb and paleo diets.
MCT Oil contains caprylic and capric acids, both of which have been extracted from high-quality coconut oil. These acids have medium chain length as the name Medium Chain Triglycerides implies, which apart from the traditional oils with a long chain means that they are quickly digestible. This is due to the fact that after consumption they almost immediately make their way to the liver, which turns them into a usable source of energy for any action, brain activity and other bodily functions. This makes MCT Oil quite popular among athletes, who want to save their muscle glycogen reserves and prefer to receive energy from fats instead of carbohydrate sources.
But that's not all, this unique MCT Oil became the focus of attention of many scientists in the recent years. They have been studying its positive effects on the nervous system, brain functions, sports performance and weight loss. These areas show great results when exposed to this type of fat and many people are already using it to promote weight loss and their athletic performance. Due to its properties, it is suitable for replenishing energy both before and during the performance. It is ideal for long-term sports activities such as running and cycling.
MCT Oil is also popular among the fans of a healthy lifestyle and diets with reduced carbohydrate content. But even the fans of keto, low-carb or paleo diets will appreciate its beneficial effects. Moreover, because it is 100% plant-based, vegans can also enjoy it to the fullest. It is devoid of the typical coconut taste and smell, and you can enjoy it on its own or add it into various dishes. It will perfectly fit into porridge, smoothies, salads, or you can use it to prepare the famous bulletproof coffee. However, its smoke point is only around 160 °C and as such it is not suitable for frying or baking at higher temperatures.
