What Is MCT Oil & What Are Its Benefits?

This Medium Chain Triglyceride (MCT) oil has many benefits and uses.

 

  • It is an extremely efficient energy source. Our body does not need to break it down, as a result it enters the liver rapidly and produces a direct natural source of ketones. Ketones are a form of fuel that the body uses as an alternative to glucose.
  • Ketones have the ability to cross the blood brain barrier, to provide an instant source of fuel to your brain. This can help to improve mental clarity and energy. The calories within MCT oil are more readily used for fuel by the body. Therefore they are less likely to be stored as body fat.
  • MCT oil has also been shown to help improve blood sugar levels.

 

MCT oil is coconut derived and contains C8 (Caprilic acid) and C10 (Capric acid). C8 and C10 which have antimicrobial and anti-fungal properties. C10 can greatly help with Candida overgrowth.

How to use MCT Oil

The most popular method is to add 1 tablespoon to black coffee. You can also try using it as a salad dressing or blend it with a turmeric drink as the oil can increase the absorption of the turmeric.
