Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) are fats that are naturally found in coconut and palm kernel oil. MCTs are more easily and rapidly digested than other types of fats, as they require lower amounts of enzymes and bile acids for intestinal absorption. MCTs are metabolized very quickly in the liver and shown to encourage energy expenditure, vs. fat storage. Numerous studies suggest that substituting MCT Oil for other fats in a healthy diet may therefore help to support healthy weight and body composition.
MCT Oil has naturally occurring fatty acids Caprylic Acid (C8:0) and Capric Acid (C10:0). NOW® MCT Oil is Pharmaceutical Grade.
