MCTs are ‘Medium-Chain Triglycerides’ which are a form of saturated fat. In recent times MCT oil has grown massively in popularity within those in the fitness industry and those wanting the benefits it has to offer.

There are certain oils which are naturally a good source of Medium-Chain Triglycerides including Coconut Oil, this is around 62-65%. Furthermore, foods such as butter (particularly from grass fed cows), cheeses, whole milk and yoghurts also have MCTs in varying quantities although in lower amounts when compared to coconut oil.

These foods may have other benefits alongside the MCT oil, however, many opt for the pure MCT Oil to add into their nutritional program, which may be easier and a more convenient solution.

Why Are They Called ‘Medium Chain Triglycerides’?

Fats are made from chains of connected hydrogen and carbon atoms, certain fats are short chain fatty acids – these have fewer than 6 carbons. medium chain fatty acids have 6-12 carbons and long chain fatty acids have 13-21 carbons (such as omega 3s).

MCTs are seen as an easily digestible fuel source, which is ideal for those wanting high amounts of energy or just a concentrated amount of energy with zero carbs.

They are easy to digest because they chains don’t take much energy to break apart, once absorbed they go straight to the liver where they are thought to positively affect the metabolism which is why many claims that MCTs are burned by the body for fuel rather than being stored as fat. Additionally, MCTs are thought to be anti-inflammatory and have positive effects on gut health.
