MCT is the abbreviation for Medium-Chain Triglycerides. They are the healthy fats that are found in food (such as Coconut Oil).
What makes them special is how they are metabolised by our bodies. Due to their shorter chain length, they are broken down quicker than LCT’s (Long-Chain Triglycerides). MCT’s go right into your liver and are used as an instant energy source or turned into ketones (hence why they are so popular with keto-dieters).
Seeing as MCT’s are used right away, they are less likely to be stored as fat, making them a great diet addition for anyone looking to maintain a healthy weight or get an energy boost.
MCT oil / Fractionated Coconut oil works wonderfully as a clear carrier oil for essential oil dilutions & preparations.
