The Benefits of MCT Oil

MCT Oil is one of the quickest and cleanest fuel sources for the brain and the body. With fewer steps to convert into caloric energy than carbohydrates, it is one of the most efficient ways to boost your performance and your health.


MCT stands for Medium Chain Triglycerides and we use these molecules for energy. MCTs are absorbed more readily and are converted to energy quicker, and in fewer steps, than those of carbohydrates.


MCTs are a “good fat” that involves less action from the liver to convert straight into fuel in the form of ketones. Ketones are one of the brain’s two primary sources of fuel, and an important source of ATP energy for the body, allowing movement of every muscle in the body.


When the fatty acids of MCT oil are converted into energy, the metabolism is sped up, which can assist with fat-burning at rest and effective calorie burning by the body. Due to the MCTs' ability to boost metabolism, you will experience enhanced energy levels.


Who should use MCT oil?

Using MCT oil is very effective for people who struggle with poor cognitive health, low energy, poor digestion, obesity, hormonal instabilities, slow metabolism, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and inflammation.


MCT oil is also going to enhance the brain function and physical performance of athletes as well as the general population.

Great benefits!

I started using <a href="">MCT Oil</a> when I went through a keto diet phase to lose weight. It helped me a lot. Even though I'm not on a keto diet now, I still use it.
