How do MCTs help with fitness?
MCTs, including coconut oil, are burned by the body for energy, or “fuel,” instead of being stored as fat. Studies in both men and women have been conducted using MCTs and have shown that MCTs increase energy expenditure and raise the metabolic rate. As part of a healthy diet, MCT oil can also help you feel full for longer periods of time—who doesn’t want that?
Why do athletes use MCT Oil?
Looking for that quick burst of energy? MCTs are an especially beneficial supplement for fueling physical exertion, given their high energy density content, rapid rate of absorption and quick metabolic conversion into cellular energy. Additionally, MCTs can be quickly mobilized in the post-exercise recovery phase to rebuild muscles and prevent the breakdown of protein that can occur when the body is putting a maximum demand on the body’s energy reserves.
Why MCT Oil for brain health?
Your brain is largely made up of fatty acids, so you need a steady supply from your diet to feel your best, think clearly, perform well at work and stay sharp well into older age. Medium-chain fats are believed to be one of the most easily digested, utilized and protective fatty acids that exists. According to leading Neurologist Dr. Perlmutter, you can boost the availability of ketones for your brain by simply adding coconut oil or MCT oil to your daily regimen.
