Medium chain triglycerides or MCTs are a beneficial type of fat known for its many health properties. Dietworks® MCT Oil is 100% derived from coconuts , unlike other MCT oils on the market. It quickly metabolizes within the body, not stored as other fats. Instead, its medium chain fatty acids are quickly broken down to provide a fast energy source. MCTs are stored as fuel, in the form of ketones, for the body. Ketones are a major source of energy for the brain and also provide cellular energy as a vital source of ATP (adenosine triphosphate) in the muscles. Because of this increased conversion to ketones, MCT oil is a helpful diet aid. It reduces the need for carbohydrates for energy, which can help reduce carb cravings, plus it helps promote the burning of body fat for additional energy.*
In addition, MCT provides a satiety effect, which may help deter your appetite, as it’s helping to increase your metabolism. MCT has also been shown to support cognitive and immune health. This healthy saturated fat can be mixed with hot or cold beverages or consumed alone.
Along with a proper diet and exercise, DietWorks® supplements may help jump-start a diet and promote weight management.*
