Medium Chain Triglycerides

Medium-chain Triglycerides, commonly abbreviated MCT(s), are medium-chain fatty acid esters of glycerol. MCTs are made from hydrolyzed coconut and palm kernel oils. They are efficiently absorbed. MCTs are absorbed from the small intestines into portal circulation where it is transported to the liver. MCTs are then transported further or converted into essential nutrients, enzymes, and acids necessary for the body to function properly. MCTs can help reduce blood triglyceride levels as well as increase metabolic rate and energy expenditures by the body. It is often used as an adjunctive therapy for malabsorption syndromes such as diarrhea, gastrectomy, and steatorrhea. MCT has also been used as nutritional support for athletic training and decreasing body fat and increasing lean muscle mass.
