MCT Oil for an All-Natural Energy Boost
The way MCT oil is used by the body is responsible for its awesome energy boosting effects. Most fats just sit in the body to be stored and used as fuel later. Even though MCT oil is a fat (one of the healthy saturated fats), as a liquid it is absorbed quickly and converted to energy.1 This makes it a popular choice for athletes, or anyone looking for some additional energy for their day.
Using MCT Oil in for Weight Loss
MCT oil has been clinically shown to aid weight loss and lower cholesterol. When compared to (and as a substitute for) olive oil, MCT oil was shown to reduce cholesterol by 12.5% in a 29-day span, whereas olive oil saw a reduction of 4.7%2. MCT oil is a smart choice than can have a really positive impact on your overall heart health.2
MCT Oil and Brain Function
One of the most compelling benefits of MCT oil is the promising research behind its effect on the brain. The way that MCT oil is converted into energy in the body creates ketones, which is what gives the oil its energy boosting properties. But this same process, called ketogenesis, also feeds brain cells and mitigates some of the natural neurological processes that cause memory loss.3
Using MCT Oil for Immune and Digestive Support
Physician’s Choice MCT Oil incorporates both C8 (Caprylic Acid) and C10 (Capric Acid) into one product. The combination of the acids provide both immune support and digestive support. Capric acid in particular has been shown to kill certain strains of yeast and bacteria that can cause inflammation and infection and other digestive issues.4
Medium Chain Triglycerides Oil: Cold-pressed from coconuts, pure medium chain triglycerides (MCT) are saturated fats with a unique chemical structure that allows them to be absorbed quickly and rapidly converted to energy. Because of this rapid conversion, MCTs are unlikely to sit and be stored as fat in the body, which make them a viable, healthy option for fats in ketogenic and paleo dieting.* The C8 and C10 acids together, compared to C8 MCT oil alone, combine to make a product that can support a healthy immune system in addition to helping promote efficient cognitive function and visual memory.
To see the maximum benefits of MCT oil, use 1 tbsp. daily. This can be blended with coffee, shakes, smoothies, oatmeal, or as a substitute for other oils.
