What is MCT Oil?
MCTs (medium chain triglycerides) are a type of dietary fat most commonly found in coconut and palm oils. They are rarer and notably different in their chemical makeup in that they contain between 6 & 12 carbon chains, compared to the long chain triglycerides (LCTs) containing more than 12 carbon chains found in most other dietary fats. For this reason, MCTs are more effectively absorbed and utilised to provide immediate energy instead of being stored as fat in the body.
There are 4 different types of MCTs, C6 (Caproic acid), C8 (Caprylic acid), C10 (Capric acid) and C12 (Lauric Acid). NKD Living Premium C8 & C10 MCT Oil contains high levels of C8 and C10 fatty acids. C8 mainly contributes to the formation of ketones while C10 is a powerful anti-final and boots immunity.
How do MCTs benefit my body?
MCTs also allow our bodies to reach ketosis (the process of burning fat for energy) faster and more easily, and because they do not store as fat in the body, can also help with Slimming & Weight Loss, endurance and physical performance.
