MCT Oil 100% – Product Details
MCT oil is formulated with “medium chain triglycerides” which are derived from organic coconut oil. It is a natural, satiating, and calorie-free energy source that provides a host of benefits.
Unlike other oils, MCT is metabolized differently by the body and goes straight to the liver where it is used for energy rather than being stored as fat [R].
What is MCT Oil?
MCT (Medium-Chain Triglyceride) Oil is a unique fatty acid naturally found in organic palm kernel and coconut oil. With its unique mix of medium-chain fatty acids, including lauric, capric, and caprylic acid, MCTs convert more readily into ketone bodies than other fatty acids do [R].
Ketone bodies are a source of fuel for the body to use as energy, providing many potential health benefits. It’s also easier for the body to absorb than other oils and can help with fat loss since these compounds also help suppress appetite.
How Do Medium Chain Triglycerides/Medium Chain Fatty Acids Work?
Essentially, MCTs act as a converter that takes the fats and oils naturally extracted from organic sources (such as sustainable coconuts) and turns them into digestive strain pure fuel. This quickly converted fuel is easier to digest with less digestive strain than other saturated fats, enabling longer-lasting energy levels [R].
Benefits of MCT Oil
MCT is a type of beneficial organic food oil derived from nature. Pure MCT is formulated without any other premium ingredients and fillers. It is also GMO- and gluten-free. MCT is extracted directly from nature, ensuring premium quality in terms of both efficacy and safety.
Studies show that MCT has the potential to speed up metabolism and accelerate fat loss quickly by aiding in a slow release of energy throughout the day [R].
Additionally, MCT may also improve cognitive performance because it is absorbed easily into the liver; this may help with the treatment of cognitive disorders or difficulties with focus [R].
MCT naturally increases levels of serotonin, which offers users stronger feelings of well-being and alertness.
MCT Oil and Metabolism
Containing all four different types of medium-chain fatty acids, the purest MCT is quickly absorbed in the intestines, helping to support metabolism by providing a clean source of energy directly to cells and tissues. Research claims that MCT oils may help decrease fat accumulation and control weight by helping regulate appetite and enhancing the process of transforming fat to fuel [R].
Additionally, many medical studies have highlighted its potential for improving cardiovascular health by encouraging healthy cholesterol levels, reducing inflammation, and providing antioxidant protection.
MCT Oil and Cognitive Performance
MCT works as a converter, breaking down fatty acids and transforming them into energy that can be used by the brain quickly and effectively. Evidence suggests that MCT increases mental alertness and perceived energy levels while supporting ketosis, an essential component of maintaining optimal cognitive performance [R].
Additionally, it helps reduce symptoms associated with Alzheimer’s disease, such as memory loss and confusion. The use of MCT has also been linked to improved focus and concentration [R].
MCT Oil and Serotonin
MCT also has important implications for mental health. It may help to boost the production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that helps to regulate mood and emotions. Studies have found that MCT can help to reduce symptoms associated with depression, anxiety, and stress [R].
MCT provides numerous health benefits for boosting serotonin levels, which can improve mood and reduce stress [R].
MCT Oil and Performance
Research indicates that MCT oil may increase energy expenditure and lipid oxidation during exercise, leading to improved sports performance. One study found that athletes who supplemented with MCT experienced an 8% increase in time to exhaustion, compared to those taking a placebo [R].
This suggests that MCT can help endurance athletes improve their performance by helping them maintain higher intensity levels for longer periods of time [R].
Additionally, MCT has also been thought to reduce muscle damage after exercise, potentially speeding up post-workout recovery times.
MCT Oil and Anti-Aging
MCT oil has been found to be a potent natural anti-aging remedy [R]. This is due to its high content of healthy fats, which have been linked with improved skin health and reduced signs of aging. MCT also contains antioxidants that can help protect the skin from free radical damage caused by environmental factors such as sun exposure, pollution, and poor diet.
Additionally, research suggests that MCTs may even help reduce inflammation, which can contribute to premature aging when left unchecked [R].
MCT Oil and Blood Sugar Levels
MCT is known to have positive impacts on blood sugar levels. Research claims that it can help improve glycemic control by increasing insulin sensitivity and reducing blood glucose levels [R]. In addition, they may also be beneficial in improving the body’s ability to metabolize glucose.
Studies have found that MCTs assist the body in breaking down carbohydrates more efficiently, resulting in lower post-meal blood sugar levels [R].
MCT Oil and Digestion
Studies have determined that MCT facilitates the breakdown and absorption of lipids in the digestive tract, reduces inflammation throughout the system, and acts as a natural laxative to prevent constipation [R].
Triple-Filtered MCT Oil
Triple-Filtered MCT is a premium quality oil made with triple-filtration technology. This triple-filtration process ensures that only the purest, highest-grade coconut and palm kernel oil is used, resulting in an oil of superior purity and quality. The triple-filtration process also helps to reduce any impurities such as solvents, pesticides, herbicides, or other contaminants from entering the product.
This results in a safe and clean product that is non-GMO and vegan-friendly.
This Triple-Filtered MCT has been tested for consistency and safety by third-party organizations to ensure it meets the highest standards of excellence in quality control and production.
MCT oil has a relatively long shelf life, provided it is small batch tested and stored properly. It should be kept in tightly sealed containers and stored at temperatures below 77°F (25°C). Additionally, MCT oil should be protected from direct light and heat sources. If these conditions are met, MCT oil can typically maintain its freshness and quality for up to two years. After this point, the oil may become less potent.
MCT Oil Summary
MCT is a type of oil derived from coconuts. It is carefully extracted through a triple-filtration process, leaving only the purest, most natural form of MCTs available. This ensures that no unnatural additives are added, making it non-GMO and gluten-free. Unlike other oils, MCT does not require digestion in order to be broken down and converted into energy – it is a direct source of energy [R].
Each batch of MCT is carefully monitored and tested to ensure artisan producers are providing the highest quality product with consistently safe ingredients. These premium grades of MCT guarantee that each batch is carefully inspected for freshness, purity, and safety.
