Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs)

Also known as: Caprylic Acid, MCT, MCT Oil

MCT Oil is an oil made from medium chain-triglycerides, which are a type of fat that can be found in dairy products and in particularly high concentrations in palm kernel oil and coconut oil. Medium-chain triglycerides get their name from the fact that they are made up from 6 to 12 carbon atoms, as opposed to the 13 to 21 carbon atoms that make up long-chain fatty acids. Medium-chain fatty acids are processed differently by the body than long-chain fatty acids and are broken down by the gut and the liver where they are converted into ketones which are used by the body to promote energy.
