Medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) are naturally occurring fats in coconut and palm kernel oils. They are easily absorbed and metabolized for use in various functions in the body. The key benefit of MCTs is that they aid in signaling your body to start the process of using fat as energy rather than for storage. MCT Oil is the perfect addition to a Ketogenic lifestyle and a great way to add healthy fats into your diet. All-new ALLMAX MCT Oil is derived from 100% Coconut Oil with a 60:40 blend of C8 (Caprylic Acid) and C10 (Capric Acid).
The popular Ketogenic diet is about keeping the body in a state of ketosis. This is where the body flips the switch and starts using fatty acids as the main source of energy instead of carbs. In simple terms, the Keto diet is all about high fat and very low carbs. However, it is very important to be consuming the right kind of fatty acids if you want to kick yourself into ketosis and shed fat quickly.
Although short and long chain fatty acids are ok, they are digested by the stomach so the body can’t utilize them effectively. Medium chain triglycerides such as C8 and C10, strike the perfect balance and are not processed through the digestive system. They instead go straight to the liver and are broken down into ketones and released into the bloodstream. Ketones are produced by the body when it’s burning fat for fuel. The more ketones, the more fuel, the more fat that is burned!
