MCT stands for medium chain triglycerides, which comprise primarily caprylic and capric fatty acids that occur naturally in coconut and palm kernel oils. The oil is clear, odourless and pleasant tasting.
Medium chained triglycerides have increased in popularity as a performance enhancer by athletes, bodybuilders and for weight loss. MCT’s enhance ketone production that aids in physical and brain performance. They are extremely beneficial for the body and assist with a range of ailments including neurodegenerative disorders.
Anti-oxidant and anti-bacterial MCT oil can rid the gut of bacteria, fungi, viruses and parasites. It has shown to reduce the risk of atherosclerosis, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, autoimmune diseases, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and epilepsy. Further to treating obesity, it’s been shown to help with Alzheimer’s, seizures, fat malabsorption and cystic fibrosis.
MCT’s are great for sports people as they are anti-inflammatory and provide instant and sustainable energy. Metabolised in the liver, MCT’s do not go through the normal digestive process, so they get utilised immediately by the body and not stored in the fat cells.
An aid in weight loss MCT’s have shown to improve metabolism and thyroid function as well as increase the number of calories burnt (thermogenic effect) from a meal – the more calories that are burnt results in less fat being stored in the body. Diabetics can also benefit from including MCT oil in their diets as it improves blood sugar regulation as part of Banting type diets as MCT’s are potent ketogenic fats.
