The ketogenic diet has been launched into the health and wellness lexicon in the past five years, and it has left us with unfamiliar terms like "MCT". Stop nodding your head in agreement and educate yourself on the definition and benefits of MCT's!
Did you know that more than 50% of the fat in coconut oil comes from MCTs? What are these MCTs that everyone keeps talking about anyways???
medium-length chains of fat
shorter in length = easier digestion
The MCTs present in coconut meat has been shown to strengthen the bacteria in your gut. This can help protect against inflammation and irregular digestion.
Dubbed as super fuel MCTs, they travel straight from the gut to the liver where they are processed efficiently to be used as an IMMEDIATE energy source.
If you're in ketosis, you may feel as though you're thinking or feeling "clearer". This is from your liver converting MCTs into ketones which then pass-through your blood-brain barrier. This results in a brain cell superfood (eliminating that foggy feeling) along with a convenient source of energy.
