Absorbable Fuel for Mitochondria*MCT Oil USP™is a high quality blend of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs). MCTs are special fatty acids which are metabolized more fully for energy in the body. Normal fats and oils contain long-chain fatty acids (LCTs). When compared to these fatty acids, MCTs are much shorter in length thus resembling carbohydrates more than fat. As a result, they are more quickly absorbed by the body and metabolized as fuel.* Because of this quick metabolism, the calories in MCTs are very efficiently converted into fuel for immediate use in the mitochondria, instead of being stored as fat.*MCTs have been shown to enhance thermogenesis (heat production) in the body, thereby promoting the burning of fat.* MCTs contain fewer calories than LCTs, are metabolized quicker and actually contribute to an enhanced metabolism to burn even more calories!*MCT Oil™ can also be used as a substitute for conventional oils in salad dressings, sauces or cooking as a source of beneficial fatty acids. It is not recommended for use in frying due to its low boiling point.Serving Size: 1 TablespoonServings Per Container: 16Ingredients:100% USP (United States Pharmacopeia) Compliant MCT Oil (from coconut oil).Contains:Tree nuts (coconut).Does Not Contain:Milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, peanuts, wheat, soy.Does not contain artificial colors, sweeteners or preservatives.Caution:May cause a mild laxative effect.
