Great source of energy, promotes weight loss & supports keto diet

MCT Activ contains medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) from coconut and/ or palm kernel oils. MCTs are lipids composed of three fatty acids witha chain length of 6-12 carbon atoms attached to a glycerol backbone. Compared to long chain fatty acids, MCTs have a smaller molecular structure and are more readily digested and converted to energy.

  • Contains MCTs from coconut and/or palm kernel oils.
  • Compared to long chain fatty acids, MCTs have a smaller molecular structure and are more readily digested and converted to energy.
  • Contains 95% C8, 4% C10 and 1% C6 MCTs.
  • Sustainably sourced.
  • Vegetarian and vegan friendly.
  • Raw materials are Kosher and Halal certified.

KEY BENEFITS:

There are several reasons why MCT oil may be beneficial when you’re trying to lose weight.

  • MCT oil has been shown to increase the release of two hormones that promote the feeling of fullness in the body: peptide YY and leptin 
  • Additionally, taking MCT oil has been shown to significantly reduce body weight and waist circumference. Researchers even report that it could help prevent obesity 
  • MCT oil has about 10% fewer calories than long-chain triglycerides (LCTs), which are found in foods such as olive oil, nuts and avocados
  • Your body also processes MCTs differently, which may help you burn calories 
  • Your body can use MCT oil as an instant source of energy, making it unnecessary to store fat for this purpose. Nevertheless, it’s important to note that your body may adapt to this dietary change, leading to only temporary results 
  • MCTs can be converted into ketones, which are produced from the breakdown of fat when carb intake is low. If you’re following a ketogenic diet, which is very low in carbs yet high in fat, then taking MCT oil can help you stay in the fat-burning state known as ketosis.
  • Lastly, your gut environment is very important when it comes to your weight. MCT oil can help optimize the growth of good bacteria and support the gut lining, which could also help you lose weight 

SUMMARY

MCT oil may support weight loss by increasing fullness, fat loss, energy burning, ketone production and by improving your gut environment.

2. Instant Source of Energy That Can Also Be Used to Fuel Your Brain
  • MCT oil has been dubbed a super fuel since your body absorbs MCTs more rapidly than long-chain triglycerides (LCTs), which contain more carbons in their fatty acid chains 
  • Due to their shorter chain length, MCTs travel straight from the gut to the liver and do not require bile to break down like longer-chain fats do
  • In the liver, the fats are broken down to be either used as fuel or stored as body fat.
  • Since MCTs easily enter your cells without being broken down, they can be used as an immediate source of energy
  • When you’re on a ketogenic diet, MCTs can also be converted into ketones in the liver.
  • These ketones can pass through your blood-brain barrier, making them a convenient source of energy for your brain cells.

SUMMARY

MCT oil is easily absorbed and transported throughout the body. It can be used as an instant source of energy or can be converted into ketones to fuel your brain.
