MCT Oil: why you should take this essential fatty acid every day
The last 2 years has seen a dramatic rise in the consumption of MCT oil. Here’s why so many athletes and leading nutritionists say it’s an essential daily supplement.
Medium Chain Triglycerides, popularly known as MCT Oil, have been used by serious athletes and leading nutritionists for the best part of a decade now.
However, the last 2 years has seen a dramatic rise in the consumption of MCT. MCT has now hit the mainstream with its inclusion in Bulletproof coffee, and in the rise of fasting and ketogenic dieting that is currently popular for weight loss and athletic performance.
MCT oil is derived from coconuts and is one of the cleanest fuel sources as, unlike carbohydrate-based fuels, fat-based fuels produce almost no damaging free radicals.
MCT is rapidly taken up by working muscle, which is why it has proven so popular with athletes.
I’ve been recommending MCT for patients seeking to get lean for the past 8 years and my wife and I use it in our coffee and high-fat breakfast smoothies. Personally, I find the benefits of MCT include the complete elimination of abdominal bloating, appetite suppression well into the afternoon and enough energy to stay functioning without brain-fade.
MCT is the perfect supplement for those just starting out on or maintaining radical dietary modifications such as ultra-low carbohydrate consumption or intermittent fasting.
What makes Truth Origins MCT superior?
Truth origins only use sustainable, organically grown Coconuts, and contains no cheap Palm Oil that is implicated in the murky world of deforestation (you’re welcome Orangutans).
Our MCT is flavourless and odourless, so you don’t even notice it.
Add one to three spoonfuls to your morning coffee for a great way to fuel your day.
