There’s been a buzz surrounding MCTs, but what are they and what do they do for us? MCTs, or medium chain triglycerides, are a type of fat found in our diet. Triglycerides can be utilized as a source of energy or stored as fat in the body. Since medium chain triglycerides are shorter than the longer chain triglycerides found in most fats and oils, they can be digested more quickly and used as an immediate source of energy. MCTs can be naturally found in coconut oil, milk fat, and palm kernel oil.
Here are the main benefits of incorporating MCTs into your daily routine:
