WHAT ARE MEDIUM CHAIN TRIGLYCERIDES? BULK POWDERS Medium Chain Triglycerides, often abbreviated to MCT or MCTs, are a form of fat that provides an easily digested, calorie dense energy source. MCT are unique in that, unlike other fats, they are metabolized by the body more like a carbohydrate than a fat - simply, MCT provide lots of energy, very quickly. Importantly, Medium Chain Triglycerides create this energy without causing an insulin spike, which is of great benefit for diabetics or simply anyone following a low-carbohydrate diet. Some literature suggests that Medium Chain Triglycerides can be useful for weight loss, particularly for those following a low carbohydrate-higher fat diet. MCT are smaller than LCT (Long Chain Triglycerides) and are therefore easily digested. They are not stored as fat, instead going directly to the liver where they are broken down and used as energy. To this extent they actually stimulate metabolism and assist with weight loss. WHERE ARE MEDIUM CHAIN TRIGLYCERIDES FOUND? Coconut and Coconut Oil are good natural source of MCT. MCT can also be found in Palm Oil. ALSO REFERRED TO AS: Medium Chain Triglyceride, MCT Oil, MCT Powder. MCTs, MCFA, MCFAs. PERFORMANCE BENEFITS For an athlete that is struggling to consume an adequate calorie intake to match their high calorie expenditure, Medium Chain Triglycerides are a convenient way of adding extra calories. One advantage of using Medium Chain Triglycerides over other fats is that they are medium rather than long or very long chain. Most fatty acids are long or very long chain, which means they require further digestive processes by the body, whereas MCT do not. This means that Medium Chain Triglycerides provide a rapid supply of calories, which can be used for instant energy. HEALTH BENEFITS While Medium Chain Triglycerides aren't a 'health' product per se, they have gained popularity for treating a variety of conditions from malnutrition to recovery from major illness/operations.
Medium Chain Triglycerides are suitable for Vegetarians.See all Product Description
