what is MCT oil?
MCTs or medium chain triglycerides are a type of dietary fat most commonly found in coconut and palm oils. They are rarer and notably different in their chemical makeup in that they contain between six and 12 carbon chains, compared to the long chain triglycerides (LCTs) containing more than 12 carbon chains found in most other dietary fats. For this reason, MCTs are more effectively absorbed and utilised to provide immediate energy instead of being stored as fat in the body.
There are four different types of MCTs, C6 (Caproic acid), C8 (Caprylic acid), C10 (Capric acid) and C12 (Lauric Acid). Our oil contains high levels of C8 and C10 fatty acids. C8 mainly contributes to the formation of ketones while C10 is a powerful anti-fungal and boost immunity.
NKD Living MCT oil is made from 100% coconut and contains no palm oil.
MCTs and ketosis
Instead of requiring pancreatic enzymes and bile to be digested for absorption (as needed for LCTs), MCTs are absorbed directly through the gut, into the blood stream and sent straight to the liver. Here, MCTs are converted to ketone bodies the by-product of fat being utilised for energy, which can be used by the brain, heart and other muscles.
MCTs also allow our bodies to reach ketosis (the process of burning fat for energy) faster and more easily, and because they do not store as fat in the body, can also help with weight management, endurance and physical performance.
how to use
With its neutral taste and aroma, this oil can truly be added anywhere.
Blend your MCT oil with coffee for a creamy effect, into high fat shakes to take them to the next level or even drizzle it on a salad with lemon juice.
MCTs are rapidly digested and absorbed, allowing your body to run off the ketones it produces for hours.
It is suggested that you start with 15ml throughout the day and increase this according to need and tolerance.
