MCT Oil Organic Coconuts 1,000MG (Bottled)
MCT Oil From Organic Coconuts provides sustained and natural energy. The human body burns medium chain triglycerides (MCTs), for energy. MCTs also provide a number of health benefits, ranging from ranging from improved cognitive function to better weight management.
All fats have strings of carbon and hydrogen, and these chains can be long, medium, or short. Long chains are healthy but can be difficult to break down and absorb. Because it has medium chains, MCT oil is easy for the body to absorb and use.
Unlike other forms of fuel, the human body burns MCTs immediately, rather than storing the energy as fat. The intestines usually break down and remake fats into a form easily transported in the bloodstream. The body bypasses the digestion process for MCTs, which means these fatty acids reach the bloodstream intact.
Also known as medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs), MCTs are largely missing from the Western diet because Americans do not always get the fresh coconuts, palm oil, goat’s milk and other foods containing these healthful fatty acids. Coconuts are the richest source of MCTs.
