Need a quick boost of fuel for your brain and body? MCT oil can help to quickly support energy levels, to help your mind focus and get through even the toughest of workouts. Whether you’re looking for some extra brain power or a natural supplement to fuel endurance efforts, we have a range of MCT oil’s for your needs.
Derived from coconut oil, MCT oil is made up of medium chain triglycerides (MCT), in reference to their medium length chains of fats. In addition to coconut oil, they are naturally found in goat milk, palm oil and breast milk. Unlike longer chain triglycerides, these medium chain triglycerides are quickly and easily digested and processed by the liver, providing immediate fuel for the body to use as energy. They provide a fast, sustained energy release or can be turned into ketones, which provide an additional energy source for the brain.
Because the calories from MCT oil are more quickly and efficiently used for energy by the body, this means that they are less likely to be stored as fat, making them a good choice for those needing help with weight management.
MCT oil benefits include:
- Supports brain function and clarity
- Supports a feeling of fullness
- Supports energy production
- Supporting weight management and metabolic rate
