Studies* have demonstrated that MCT oil consumption along with a healthy diet can help to maintain a healthy body weight while sparing lean tissue.
MCTs improve blood sugar regulation (yay!), improve metabolism (especially fat metabolism), may improve thyroid function, improve appetite regulation, MCT improves body composition. If you’re into burning fat, MCTs are your friend. Put it on your salad, on your vegetables, in your smoothie, tea, soups dressings and cook with it, keep it under 320 so that it does not burn.
