Do you want to take care of maintaining a healthy body weight? Or are you looking for a way to maintain optimal energy levels on a daily basis? MCT oil can prove to be a valuable support during weight loss, support liver function and also have a positive effect on the quality of your training. Reach for MCT Oil 1000 mg and see how it can improve your fitness.

MCT oil (medium chain triglycerides) is a mixture of medium-chain saturated fatty acid triglycerides of plant origin. They contain between 6 and 12 carbon atoms and are found in a variety of sources. MCT oil is recognised as a high-value functional food [1]. In particular, attention is drawn to its properties for reducing body weight and body composition [2] and the role it plays in reducing abdominal obesity, metabolic syndrome and lowering inflammatory markers [3]. Studies have shown that consumption of MCT oil can support food malabsorption (e.g. diarrhoea or liver problems) [3], as well as increase energy expenditure, fat oxidation and satiety, and reduce food intake [4].

Medium-chain fatty acids (MCTs) are readily absorbed by the intestinal villi, which means that they enter the bloodstream faster than other types of fat. Therefore, some studies show a link between MCT oil levels and energy levels. MCT oil has also been shown to have a beneficial effect on exerciseperformance by increasing biogenesis and mitochondrial metabolism [3].

Natural sources of medium-chain triglyceride fatty acids include coconut oil, palm oil and milk fat [5]. MCT oil contains caprylic acid (C8:0) - which has an appetite-stimulating effect by regulating ghrelin (commonly known as the hunger hormone) [6] - and capric acid (C10:0), which is attributed with antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties [7]. Including MCT oil in your daily diet can have many benefits - especially for maintaining a healthy body weight.

Our supplement contains MCT oil derived from 100% oil produced from the coconut palm fruit Cocos nucifera. There is no palm oil added to it.  The product is characterised by a high content of caprylic acid (C8) and capric acid (C10). Caproic acid, lauric acid and myristic acid can also be found in it. The recommended daily serving, which corresponds to 1 capsule, contains as much as 1,000 mg of MCT oil. The supplement is best taken after a meal.
