Not All Fats are Equal
The fat we eat in our diet is often blamed for heart disease and obesity, with saturated fats generally classed as unhealthier than unsaturated fats.
However, the reality is our bodies process various fats differently.
We have a very simple classification for the fats we eat, which basically takes into account the length of their molecules: short-chain fatty acids, medium-chain fatty acids (MCTs) and long-chain fatty acids.
The American diet is dominated by long-chain fats, from animals and vegetable oils. It is also worth noting that monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats are also long-chain fatty acids.
MCTs do not go pass through the same metabolic pathway as other fats and actually skip a few steps taken by their longer relative.
MCTs are found naturally in coconut oil and palm kernel oil.
Reducing Fat Stores
The way your body processes MCTs may inhibit them from being deposited into body fat tissue.
MCT oil bypasses the digestion process that longer chain fats go through. They may help provide quick energy, so are less likely to be stored in the fat cells.
And when your body increases its energy output, your metabolism increases and your fat cells are used as the main source of energy, providing a thermogenic effect.
Ultimately, when your body uses more calories, it stores fewer as fat, helping to lower body fat levels, supporting healthy weight management and body composition.
To use MCT Oil 100% Pure as a dietary supplement, adults can take one tablespoon (15 ml) one to three times a day.
MCT Oil can also be used instead of conventional oils in salad dressings, sauces, or cooking as a source of beneficial fatty acids.
