More Energy, Leaner Body and Better Brain Health Without Increasing Body Fat
MCT Oil Rx™ provides medium-chain triglycerides which may increase energy expenditure and provide an energy boost without increasing body fat and fat storage. It is great for those that want to lose weight and improve their metabolism and overall health. Medium-chain triglycerides can benefit the brain, heart, liver, and those with elevated blood glucose and cholesterol levels.
Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) are short and medium length chain fatty acids that are more easily absorbed and digested by the body than other fats. MCTs are found in coconut oil and palm oil. Unlike other fatty acids, MCTs go straight to the liver where they can be metabolized to ketones. Ketones which can directly cross the blood-brain barrier are substances that can provide. quick energy to the brain. MCTs may help balance blood sugar levels and promote healthy hormone function by boosting metabolism.
MCTs are utilized quickly and are not stored by the body. They can be taken before a work out to increase energy and maximize the fat-burning process. MCTs don’t cause weight gain because they stimulate thermogenesis, a process in which the body generates energy or heat by increasing its normal metabolic, fat-burning rate. It is thought that MCTs help with weight loss by increasing the production of ketones. Ketones not only help with weight loss but improve brain health since the brain like burning ketones for energy.
MCTs may help maintain heart health and support the immune system and gastrointestinal system functioning. They may improve appetite control and the absorption of calcium, magnesium and amino acids. MCTs do not supply essential fatty acids (EFA) and the best sources for these are safflower oil, canola oil, olive oil or fish* but does have the same benefits as these oils.
MCT Oil Rx™ may be used as a substitute for fats or oils in salad dressings, sauces, and cooking but should not be used for frying due to its low smoke point. It is compatible with individuals on very-low-calorie diets. MCT Oil Rx™ can be used along with Metabolic Accel to promote fat burning and boost energy*.
