MCT stands for medium-chain triglycerides and they are a type of fatty acid that provide tremendous health benefits.
These range from better cognitive functions to weight loss and are largely absent from most Western diets.
It seems that our overzealousness to combat high cholesterol caused many of us to remove saturated fats from our plates entirely.
But we forgot that some saturated fats are actually necessary and good for our health and coconut oil is a terrific source of MCT.
What are Triple Refined Coconut Oil Softgels?
Triple Refined Coconut Oil encapsulated into convenient ready to consume softgels. Therefore there is ero cholesterol in our coconut oil MCT's.
Coconut oil is often regarded as the healthiest dietary oil to exist due to its rich content of lauric acid and other medium chain triglycerides. The Coconut oil used in these softgels is not just ordinary cooking oil from coconuts but is refined to pharmaceutical grades. It is also CHOLESTEROL FREE - contains zero cholesterol.
Highly triple refined centrifugally to extract the health giving qualities without the bad cholesterol of cooking oil made from coconuts.
Cooking Oil Coconut Oil is about 90% saturated fat, which is a higher percentage than butter (about 64% saturated fat), beef fat (40%), or even lard (also 40%). Too much saturated fat in the diet is unhealthy because it raises “bad” LDL cholesterol levels, which increases the risk of heart disease.
Benefits of Triple Refined Coconut Oil Softgels:
Triple Refined Pharmaceutical Grade Coconut Oil softgels are a great source of
Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT’s).
Each softgel will provide a combination of Caprylic acid, Capric acid, Lauric acid, and Myristic acid.
What Are MCTs?
Most dietary fats (and virtually all unsaturated fats) are long chain triglycerides, with more than 12 carbon atoms in their molecular skeleton. But some saturated fats are shorter. Fats with 6 to 10 carbon atoms in their skeleton are referred to as medium chain triglycerides, or MCTs.
What Do MCTs Do?
Because of their shorter chain length, MCTs sort of jump to the head of the line and are absorbed and metabolized more quickly than longer chain fats. They’re frequently used in medical nutrition formulas for people who can’t digest and absorb fats. They’re also added to baby formula to make it more closely resemble human breast milk.
Research suggests that MCTs have special properties — like increasing metabolism or reducing appetite.
MCTs increase metabolism. Studies of both animals and humans show that increasing the amount of MCT in the diet causes the body to burn more energy, or calories.
MCTs decrease food consumption. Studies in rats show that when you load them up with MCTs, they eat less and gain less weight.
MCTs reduce fat stores. Studies have found that lab rats that were fed MCTs instead of longer chain fats ended up with smaller fat cells and fewer of them.
Who are Triple Refined Coconut Oil Softgels suitable for?
Triple Refined Coconut Oil softgels are ideal for anyone looking to increase their intake of MCT’s like sports persons. They are perfect for those who want the goodness of coconut oil without the taste, and are the easiest way of increasing your daily intake of MCT’s. Do not mistake this for softgels containing ordinary cooking oil coconut oil which are low in MCT's.
