Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) are fats that are naturally found in coconut oil. They are quickly digested and can be converted into ketones, making it an excellent addition to the popular ketogenic (or keto) diet.
The keto diet is a high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet that forces the body to burn fats instead of carbohydrates. When there are limited carbohydrates consumed through the diet, our bodies start to break down stored fat into molecules called ketone bodies (this process is called ketosis). Once ketosis is reached, most cells will use ketone bodies to generate energy.
Since MCTs can be converted into ketones, it helps you stay in ketosis and serves as a readily available source of energy. Even if you’re not following a low-carbohydrate diet, MCTs can be used as part of your exercise routine because they can be used for energy. The addition of Puritan’s Pride new MCT Oil to your diet is an easy way to take advantage of all the benefits MCTs have to offer.
