Fats constitute the most significant nutritional source of energy. Their proper use by the body conditions a number of complex mechanisms of digestion, absorption, distribution, and metabolism. Medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) oil is uniquely processed in the body, making it easier to digest and metabolize.
- Our MCT oil powder quickly and easily transforms into a light-colored, creamy, nice textured oil
- While there are many ways to supplement with MCT’s, our MCT oil powder is often added to smoothies, coffee, and even salad dressing
- Medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) are more ketogenic than long-chain triglycerides (LCT) (3)
- Easily digested, our MCT oil provides your body with plenty of readily-available energy
In the past, MCT’s were believed to be unhealthy due to its high saturated fat content. However, it has now been proven that medium-chain triglycerides are unlike any other fat on Earth and has high nutritional value. So, why is MCT fat different? MCT’s are a unique fat molecule; this is what makes it's fat different from most fats we consume.
Fats constitute the most significant nutritional source of energy. Their proper use by the body conditions a number of complex mechanisms of digestion, absorption, distribution, and metabolism. (1) These mechanisms are facilitated by fats made of medium-chain fatty acids (MCFA); therefore, they are an easy and quick source of energy. (1)
A quality supply of medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) is important for digestion and absorption. (1)
As a dietary supplement, MCTs are often used along with medications for treating food absorption disorders, including diarrhea, steatorrhea, and liver disease. (2)
MCT’s have many benefits and have also been shown to play a role in reducing weight, decreasing metabolic syndrome, reducing abdominal obesity (stomach fat), and even inflammation. (2) Also, if you are on the Paleo or ketogenic diet, or simply prefer to burn ketone bodies for fuel, rather than glucose, because of the medium-chain triglycerides, our MCT oil powder is more ketogenic than standard long-chain triglycerides (LCT). And unlike regular fatty acids, ketones can cross from the blood to the brain. This provides an alternative energy source for the brain, which ordinarily uses glucose for fuel. (4) Another amazing benefit of MCT’s and ketones.
The Coconut Research Center explains, "The vast majority of fats and oils in our diets, whether they are saturated or unsaturated or come from animals or plants, are composed of long-chain fatty acids (LCFA). Some 98 to 100% of all the fatty acids you consume are LCFA." Our MCT oil powder is composed of medium-chain fatty acids (MCFA), also referred to as MCT or medium-chain triglycerides. MCFA are metabolized by the human body differently because of their size; unlike the saturated and unsaturated fats in vegetable oils, eggs, milk, and meats, which contain LCFA, MCT oil is a rare dietary source of MCFA and therefore highly beneficial to the body and overall health.
There are 4 main types of MCTs:
Caproic acid (C6) is an oily liquid at room temperature (5) and boosts the production of blood ketones. It’s found in animal fats and several plants. It is slightly soluble in water and has an unpleasant odor. (6)
Caprylic Acid (C8) has been shown to increase energy, boost ketone production, and facilitate weight loss. (7)(8)(9) It possesses cancer-fighting and antimicrobial action. (10)(11)(12)
Capric Acid (C10) has many of the same properties as caprylic acid (C8) (e.g., boosts ketones, is antimicrobial, and can help reduce body fat (13), but generally takes a bit longer for the body to process into ketones. (14)
Lauric Acid (C12) is a major component of coconut oil. Like C8 and C10, lauric acid also possesses antimicrobial action. (15) But because it’s a bigger molecule (more carbon atoms connected together, it takes even longer to break down and therefore isn’t optimal for ketone production.
Our MCT Oil Powder is primarily C8 and C10 with the following typical composition:
C6 (Caproic) = 0.04%
C8 (Caprylic) = 52%
C10 (Capric) = 20.4%
C12 (Lauric) = 0.07%
