WHAT REDEFINED VITAMINS® SAYS ABOUT MCT Oil:
Pure Medium-Chain Triglycerides for Supporting Health and Well-Being
MCT Oil is a highly concentrated source of capric and caprylic acids derived from pure coconut. Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) are a distinct class of dietary fats that the body digests and absorbs rapidly through the portal system (in contrast to the lymphatic system like long-chain triglycerides).
How MCT Oil Works:
MCTs are a special class of triglycerides (fats) that contain between 6-12 carbons in their fatty acid chain structure. While most dietary fats are long-chain triglycerides, which are digested and absorbed through the lymphatic system, MCTs are rapidly absorbed through the portal system and readily oxidized.
Thus, MCTs serve as an efficient energy source for the body. Many individuals on low-carb diets (like the ketogenic diet) will use MCT oil throughout the day to help support their energy levels, cognitive function, and ketone body production.
Moreover, research suggests that regular consumption of MCTs, particularly capric acid and caprylic acid, may have a multitude of benefits throughout the body, specifically for supporting gastrointestinal integrity, cardiovascular function, skin health, metabolic function, and more.
Due to its unique metabolism, MCT Oil may have a variety of health benefits, including:
- Supports healthy cardiovascular function
- Supports healthy gastrointestinal integrity
- Promotes skin vitality
- Cognitive support
- Promotes ketone body production (in conjunction with a very-low-carb diet)
- Easy-to-digest and add to almost any food or liquid
