MCT is brain fuel. A liquid, tasteless oil that delivers the healthy fats our bodies crave.
MCTs (Medium-Chain Triglycerides) are fats that are metabolized differently than most dietary fats. Unlike longer chain triglycerides, MCTs require little or no enzymatic breakdown and are easily absorbed across the wall of the small intestine and delivered straight to the liver where they can be used directly for energy production (instead of being stored as fat).* In essence, they act similar to carbohydrates, but without the requirement of insulin and with no affect on blood sugar. Studies have demonstrated that MCT Oil consumption along with a healthy diet can help to maintain a healthy body weight, while sparing lean tissue.* Formulated by doctors and clinical scientists exclusively for licensed healthcare practitioners.
Dr. Gladd Says
MCT oil is what I put in my organic coffee every morning. It's the potent and healthful fats of coconut oil in a liquid, tasteless form. MCT oil is brain fuel that plays a role in keeping insulin down while also playing a role in cognitive function.
