What is MCT OIl?
MCT (medium chain triglycerides) are fats found naturally in coconut and palm kernel oil. MCT’s are more easily and rapidly digested than other types of fats, as they require lower amounts of enzymes and bile acids for intestinal absorption. Because it goes directly to the liver it is metabolized and released as energy. MCT acts like a carbohydrate (fuel for the body) to provide the necessary energy and calories, but not fat that can be stored by the body.
Buried Treasure Coconut Oil MCT
Studies show that Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) like the ones in Buried Treasure Coconut Oil MCT have shown promise in providing nutrition for the brain. Superior nutrition in Buried Treasure Coconut Oil MCT improves cognitive performance. Buried Treasure Coconut Oil MCT is most beneficial when used as a dietary supplement according to directions and in conjunction with a plant-based diet and active lifestyle.
Highest Grade MCT Oil
Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) occur naturally in small quantities in a variety of foods. In cow’s milk, MCTs account for 20% of the total fatty acid composition. They are very hard to find in suitable quantities in foods. To get pure MCTs, they are prepared from coconut oil (a source of MCTs) and are then fractionated or hydrolyzed (enzymatically broken down from “long chains” of fat into “medium chains” of healthy fats).
MCTs are burned rapidly in the liver, and some of the energy is released as body heat in a process known as thermogenesis. The thermogenic effect is probably the most important reason why MCTs do not get stored as body fat. Instead, excess calories from MCTs are converted to body heat, increasing your metabolism, and this means you burn more calories per hour.
Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT’s) are fats that are naturally found in coconut and palm kernel oil. MCT’s are more easily and rapidly digested than other types of fats, as they require lower amounts of enzymes and bile acids for intestinal absorption. MCT’s are metabolized very quickly in the liver and are reported to encourage an increase in energy expenditure, while decreasing fat storage. Numerous studies suggest that substituting MCT Oil for other fats in a healthy diet may therefore help to support healthy weight and body composition.
The Liquid Advantage
Most experts agree that the need for vitamin, mineral, and herbal supplements is greater today than ever before, because the majority of our food supply is over processed and adulterated, leading to a depleted nutrient content. Until now, nutritional supplements have been available mostly in the form of tablets, capsules, and softgel caps.
This brings up the question of absorption of these products. In order for vitamins and minerals to be utilized by the body, they must be absorbed by the blood cells from the bloodstream after passing through the digestive tract. Studies have questioned whether tablets, capsules, and softgel caps dissolve quickly enough to be effective, if they dissolve! Therefore, the key to nutrient effectiveness is directly related to the amount of active ingredients and the rate of their delivery and assimilation into the bloodstream.
