With diet culture in trend and everyone cautious about their body weight and overweight worries, pre-diabetes, diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, low energy, knee pain, back pain, sleep apnea, difficulty staying asleep, restful sleep issues, waking up tired, there’s always some product that either promises to melt away the fat or give us the lives that we’ve always dreamt of. And yes, MCT oil is on that list of dietary supplement products.

If you’re in the house of someone who is on diet, you’ve probably spotted MCT oil in their kitchens or shelves. So why is MCT oil so popular? Does it offer any lasting health benefits? Allow us to explain this question why it must be used in moderation. 

MCT oil is a supplement that has become popular among those who wish to lose weight, athletes, and last but not least bodybuilders. The popularity of coconut oil, high in MCTs, has contributed to its use and fame.

MCT oil increased two hormones that can promote the feeling of fullness, peptide YY and leptin. People who took more than 6 grams of MCT oil per day produced more of these hormones than those who had less than 1 gram per day. To top it off, the following are some science-backed tips to help you lose weight that include healthy eating, choosing carbs carefully, taking the right dietary supplements prescribed and that aim to:

  • Reduce appetite and hunger levels while keeping you satisfied and full
  • Produce consistent weight loss over the course of time
  • Help improve your metabolic health over the due course of time

A low-carb diet may reduce appetite, which can lead to naturally eating fewer calories without thinking about it or feeling hungry and MCT oil is known to be a fruitful aid to your diet and routine, thus ultimately helping you regulate appetite and lose weight.
