MCT Oil a Super Food

Posted by

MCT Oil (Medium Chain Triglycerides) is a good source of energy for the body and easy to metabolize because it helps the process of excess calorie burning and facilitates weight loss.  The oil is often used in conjunction with hCG because it encourages ketosis and assist with obesity as well as with fat malabsorbtion.

How to use MCT Oil

MCT oil can be used as a salad oil or for cooking whenever liquid oils are required because it is a bland oil. It may be heated up to 350° but doesn’t tolerate high heat well.

MCT Oil Metabolism

MCT oil goes directly to the liver to be metabolized and released as energy and does not travel through the lymphatic system like other oils do. It acts like a carbohydrate (fuel for the body) and provide necessary energy and calories.

Weight Loss and Muscle Building with MCT Oil

MCT oil has unique properties in that it can help with muscle weight gain as well as with fat weight loss. MCT oil burns three times more efficiently than other fats. After MCT oil is used this fat-burning effect can continue for up to six hours.

Exciting Benefits of MCT Oil

Studies have shown promising results for neurodegenerative disorders (eg. Parkinsons and Alzheimer’s Disease and epilepsy) when patients use the oil. MCT oil promotes intestinal health by reducing the causes of chronic inflammation and has been show to be helpful in healing conditions such as Crohn’s disease, irritable bowl syndrome and is also beneficial in malabsorptive ailments. MCT Oil is given by IV infusion in Hospitals.  MCT oil has been effective in helping diabetics regulate blood sugar levels. Studies show that this amazing oil can also be helpful in cystic fibrosis.
