With all the benefits MCT oil has to offer, its a no-brainer why it should be an important part of your daily diet.
DOES LOW-FAT MEAN HEALTHY?
For decades we have been lead to believe a low fat diet equaled a healthy diet. We’ve been told eating foods high in saturated fat would make us sick and fat, but is that the truth? Look around at what the low-fat mentality has produced: a nation struggling with extreme obesity. According to data by the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, more than 2 in 3 adults were considered overweight or obese, and about 1 in 6 children (ages 2-19) were considered obese. These are shocking statistics that tell a fact: low fat diets are contributing to America’s obesity epidemic.
SATURATED FATS AND MCT OIL
Research indicated that, contrary to popular belief, saturated fats are a requirement for a healthy diet. Saturated fats are a healthy source of MCT fatty-acids. There are many sources of medium-chain triglycerides fatty-acids including, cheese, butter, avocado oil, olive oil, and full fat yogurt. However, coconut oil and palm oil are special in that they contains larger quantities of medium chain triglycerides. Modern science has produced a process that allows us to separate the MCTs from coconut and palm oil, producing a concentrated form of medium-chain triglycerides oil.
THE SCIENCE BEHIND MCT OIL
There are 3 types of triglyceride fats: small, medium, and long chain fats. Each chain is composed of carbon and hydrogen molecules bonded together in a chain. Generally, the shorter the chain the easier it is for the body to break down the bonds and convert it into usable energy in the form of ketones. As its name indicates, medium-chain triglycerides are a medium chain, meaning it has a chain of 6-12 carbons. MCTs are also smaller than other fatty acids making it easier for the body to utilize them for their healthy purposes.
HOW MCT OIL COMBATS OBESITY
What everyone really wants to know about MCT oil is how it will help you lose weight, right? As we have established, MCT oil is a fatty acid that promotes thermogenic processes and fat oxidation which raise metabolic processes inducing weight loss. When your metabolism is revved it will continue burning fat at elevated effectiveness for a longer duration. So not only are you continually losing weight for a longer period, but that fat burn translates over to energy production, which means you are feeling like a superhero that can bounce around getting things done! And all that energy translates to increased calorie burn. It’s a win on so many levels.
WHY YOU NEED A MCT OIL SUPPLEMENT
I know after reading all these amazing benefits you’re probably sitting on the edge of your seat waiting to be pointed in the direction of where you can get your hands on this game-changer product. Surprisingly, the average diet today contains little to no MCTs, therefore it is vital to take a quality supplement on a daily basis to reap the full benefits medium-chain triglycerides have to offer.
