MCT’s have many health benefits being good for the heart, boosting immune function, as it has anti-viral and anti-bacterial effects, and help to boost metabolism and therefore can aid in fat loss programs. MCTs are digested differently to other fatty acids, in that they are absorbed much more rapidly. MCTs are valuable as an immediate source of energy and are not stored in fat cells. This makes them extremely valuable to athletes, as they have also been shown to have a muscle glycogen sparing effect and therefore boosting energy stores.
MCT oil can be used in frying, cooking, baking or even as a salad dressing. It can also be used as a pre-workout with coffee to provide an instant source of energy.
Recommended use: take 1/2 spoonful 2 times a day with a meal for the first 2 days, gradually increasing the amount every 3 days until the optimum dosage is achieved: 1-3 spoons 2 times a day.
NOTE: Consumption of single doses higher than 100 g, without previous adaptation may cause gastrointestinal problems. Long-term consumption of MCT in high doses increases L-carnitine demand. Keep out of reach of children.
