What is MCT Oil?

500ml Pure MCT Oil

Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) are fats found in foods like coconut oil and butter. They are metabolized differently from long-chain triglycerides (LCT) found in most other foods.
Unlike longer-chain fatty acids, MCTs go straight to your liver, where they can be used as an instant energy source or turned into ketones. Ketones are substances produced when the liver breaks down fat.

Medium-chain triglyceride supplementation may temporarily increase ketone production compared to common long-chain fats.

How do MCTs assist with weight loss?

500ml Pure MCT Oil

1) MCTs have a lower energy density: MCTs provide ~9% less kilojoules than other fats.
2) They offer an increased sense of fullness, making it easier to manage on less carbohydrate.
3) Since MCTs are oxidised in the liver, providing energy, they are less likely to be stored as bodyfat when compared to any other fat.
4) They may increase the body’s ability to burn fat.
5) MCTs work well with ketogenic diets as they produce ketones

While MCTs may not lead to dramatic weight loss, they may be able to play a role in overall weight management. They may also help boost energy and endurance. This is good news if you’re training whilst trying to get leaner!
