MCT stands for medium chain triglycerides, which comprise primarily caprylic and capric fatty acids that occur naturally in coconut and palm kernel oils. The oil is clear, odourless and pleasant tasting.
MCT oil was initially used to help treat diseases such as cystic fibrosis, obesity, and fat malabsorption. Then athletes, bodybuilders and diet gurus jumped on the MCT bandwagon, embracing its fat-burning and energy-sustaining powers. And now MCTs are centre-stage as they are potent ketogenic fats that can be used effectively by those on the Banting diet.
When MCTs are absorbed into the blood stream, they bypass the normal digestion process that fats go through and are instead metabolised immediately by the liver for energy, so they won't be stored in the fat cells.
When a meal includes medium chain triglycerides, there is a significant increase in the number of calories burned (thermogenic effect). When more calories are used, fewer are stored as fat, which helps to reduce body fat levels.
Lifematrix Pure MCT Oil can be added to salad dressings and shakes/smoothies. It can also be used in baking (but not for frying).
