About MCT (Medium-chain triglycerides)
MCT’s (Medium Chain Triglycerides) Powder are super-fuels for your brain, muscle, metabolism and immune system. MCT is a fat source for those who are unable to digest or absorb conventional fats. It do not requires digestive enzymes or bile acids for digestion and absorption. If you want to lose weight, feel strong and energized for your athletic pursuits. Fast digesting with the source of quick energy, much faster for those who looking to increase muscle mass and bulk up. MCT provides the clean nutrition you need to fuel your life. MCT support athletic performance, Immune system, muscle maintenance, brain health and graceful ageing.
How does MCT Works in the Body
During normal activity , carbohydrates and fat serve as the two sources of fuel for the human body and mind. Excessive carbohydrate consumption contributes towards weight gain and diabetes. While , excessive consumption of dietary fat (LCT) , though providing more energy compared to carbs , contributes towards weight gain and heart disease. MCTs which have a similar function to carbohydrates , are more easily processed by the liver. And , though , providing fewer calories compared to dietary fat, are more thoroughly processed , in general , allowing for a lower calorie and cholesterol count , overall.
The long chains of LCTs require a lot of bile acids and many digestive steps to be broken down into smaller units that can be absorbed into the bloodstream. Once in the bloodstream , they are absorbed by fat cells and stored as body fat. In contrast, the MCTs are more water soluble and are able to enter the bloodstream quicker because of their shorter lengths. Once in the bloodstream , they are transported directly into the liver . Thus MCTs are an immediately available source of energy and only a tiny percent is converted into body fat.(3)
FOR ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE
Many athletes find great performance benefits using MCTs both pre and post workout . They are the best form of fat to use right before (within 2 hours) and right after exercise due to their quick mobilization and use for rebuilding muscles and preventing the catabolic breakdown of proteins after rigorous training .
MCT supplementation prior to Exercise
· Decreases the oxidation of Glucose.
· Acutely lowers cardiac workload during Exercise for the same amount of work performed when compared with Carbohydrate pre-supplementation (4)
· A small amount of MCT suppresses the increase in blood lactate concentration and rating of Perceived Exertion (RPE) during moderate intensity exercise and extends the duration of subsequent high intensity exercise. It is expected to enhance and improved time trial performance athletes.
· Ingestion of MCT containing food during exercise increases the amount of energy derived from fatty acid and reduces carbohydrate oxidation . (5)
FOR WEIGHT MANAGEMENT
Multiple studies suggest that substituting MCTs for other fats in a healthy diet may support healthy weight and body composition when combined with exercise. This is due to MCTs:
Compared to other types of oils and fats, MCTs seem to have positive effects on fat burning and weight reduction. As part of a healthy diet , MCT can help increase satiety and even raise the metabolic rate at which the body functions .(9)
Substitution of MCTs for LCTs in a targeted energy balance diet proved to offer better prevention of long-term weight gain due to increases in energy expenditure and fat-burning.(10)
MCT is also believed to help the body produce ketones, which gives you the same benefits as the ketogenic diet without needing to cut carbs to drastically low levels. In fact , MCTs are sometimes called “ the ultimate ketogenic fats” because of their heating effect in the body and ability to rapidly be used for energy , especially when someone is not eating a lot of Carbohydrates.(11)
Unlike almost all other foods , MCTs do not require energy to be absorbed , stored or used in the body , making them an almost perfect source of natural energy.
A 2004 study published in the Journal of Neurobiology of Aging they found that the MCTs helped improved memory problems including Alzheimer’s disease in older adults. It only makes sense that a food that supplies fuel for your brain and also helps to absorb vitamins and minerals better will also make you feel more clear-headed , energetic and positive. (7)
MCT is beneficial for balancing bacteria in the gut microbiota , which in turn has positive effects on digestive symptoms, energy expenditure , and the ability to absorb vitamins and minerals from the foods we eat. (8)
WHEN INTEGRATED WITHIN A BALANCED DIET , THROUGH CONTINUED USE AND DAILY EXERCISE, mctS ARE ABLE TO HELP BOOST METABOLIC RATE , WHILE REDUCING FAT AND MAINTAINING LEAN MUSCLE , ALLOWING FOR HEALTHY , SUSTAINED WEIGHT MANAGEMENT.
