Medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) are fats that are naturally found in coconut and palm kernel oils. They’re more easily and rapidly digested than other types of fats. MCTs are readily absorbed from the GI tract and are metabolized very quickly by the liver, where they are reported to encourage the use of fat for energy rather than for storage. Numerous studies suggest that substituting MCT Oil for other fats in a healthy diet may therefore help to support healthy weight and body composition.
In addition, MCTs oil promotes intestinal health, ridding the body of pesky microorganisms that cause chronic inflammation such as Crohn's disease or irritable bowel syndrome. In addition, it helps diabetics as it enhances the regulation of blood sugar levels.
Τake 15 ml of MCT oil a day. For energetic purposes, you should take MCT oil preferably 30 minutes before training. Increase the amount of MCT oil slowly so that your digestion can get used to it and do not heat MCT oil above 130 ° C, otherwise its special structure will destroy it. You can add it to salads and grilled meats.
