Lifematrix now offers pure MCT oil in 500ml bottles.
MCT stands for medium chain triglycerides, which comprise primarily caprylic and capric fatty acids. The oil is clear, odorless and pleasant tasting. MCT oil occurs naturally in coconut and palm kernel oils. (It’s basically coconut oil without the lauric acid).
Supplementation with MCT oil was initially used to help treat diseases such as cystic fibrosis, obesity, and fat malabsorption. More recently, athletes, bodybuilders, and diet gurus have jumped on the MCT bandwagon, embracing its fat-burning and energy sustaining powers.
- Use as a dietary supplement, take 1 tablespoon (15ml) 1 to 3 times daily.
