Where does it all come from?

MCT oil is usually made from the natural coconut or palm kernel oil. And, both contain the MCT in them. You can buy 100% MCT oil or a mixture of MCT and LCT.

Good to know!

The way people get MCT oil from coconut or palm kernel oil is through a process called fractionation. This process separates the MCT from the original oil and concentrates it.

Find out what MCT oil helps in? MCT oil may help boost your strength if you’re elderly and weak. There is also some evidence that proves MCT can raise the amount of energy used by your muscles. But other research also suggests it might not do that much to help get you through your workout.

Other uses of MCT oil…

MCT can also help your body make ketones, an energy source for your brain that doesn’t have carbs. Some say drinking it routinely makes your mind sharper. But if you have no cognitive disorder, one may not likely get a long-lasting brain boost just by adding some MCT oil.

More light on the MCT and the Ketogenic diet

Your body makes ketones when you break down fat on a very low-carb diet. This can lower your insulin levels and helps you burn fat. MCT helps you make more ketones than LCT. This may help you get to the fat-burning phase faster, the period which you will like to reach in any of the weight loss programs.
