MCT Oil contains saturated, polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fat, MCT oil from glycerin and coconut/palm kernel oil and other ingredients to support healthy body weight and energy production. 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. Natural color variation may occur in this product. MCT Oil has naturally occurring fatty acids Caprylic Acid (C8:0) and Capric Acid (C10:0). Per specifications, our MCT oil has 50 to 65% Caprylic Acid (C8:0) and 30 to 50% Capric Acid (C10:0). Protocol MCT Oil is derived from coconut/palm kernel oil that is sustainably sourced to protect our planet and preserve native wildlife habitats.
