"MCT” is short for “medium-chain triglycerides.” Triglycerides are the molecules that make up most fats, and medium-chain refers to the length of the fat molecule’s molecular chain. MCTs are fats that occur naturally in foods such as coconut oil, palm oil, and even mothers' milk. If you’re following a low-carb, high-fat eating plan like a Banting or Ketogenic diet, supplementing your diet with healthy fats like MCTs can assist you in achieving your goals.
MCTs, as part of an appropriate eating plan, can support weight loss, help burn fat, suppress hunger and boost brainpower.
As MCTs are largely missing from typical Western diets, including them in our daily diet by way of food supplements can be a smart approach to getting the benefits of these “smart fats”!
“MCT oil increases energy, endurance, metabolism, satiety and brain function, especially when compared to other forms of fat, including olive oil,”
says Kelly Schmidt, RD, author of “What's The Deal With Paleo & Primal Eating?”
