Product Overview

Description

  • Selected Extract of Medium-Chain Triglycerides
  • A Multipurpose Cooking and Salad Oil

Medium-Chain Triglycerides (MCTs): Extracted from coconut oil, MCTs have been shown to play an important functional role in the body. Very little MCT gets converted into body fat, because MCTs are rapidly burned for energy. Studies indicate that MCTs will not increase serum cholesterol levels.

MCTs represent an exciting new frontier in health and nutrition, promising a true "fatless fat." MCT benefits include:

  • Fast Energy—converts to energy much faster than regular oils
  • Less fat storage—little gets stored in fat cells
  • Helps stabilize brain waves
  • Metabolized without bile–gives gallbladder a rest
  • Helps to maintain healthy LDL levels
  • May increase energy expenditure
  • Lower caloric content (8.2 Calories per gram)
  • May help increase HDL levels
  • Improves absorption of vitamin E, calcium, and magnesium

Unlike most other cooking oils, MCTs are extremely stable—they do not readily become oxidized. Removing the lauric, myristic and palmitic acids and other negative elements present in the coconut oil, the extraction separates the medium-chain fatty acids. The end product is concentrated in 8-carbon caprylic acid and 10-carbon capric acid in a blended ratio of approximately 2 to 1. Glycerin removed in the initial extraction is returned and used to esterify the acids. The result is the product you hold in your hands.

Suggested Use

How to Use MCT Oil

We recommend using MCTs as a supplemental oil, substituting it for some of the usual oil in your diet. It should not be used as a replacement for all the oils in your diet. Recommended use is 1-3 tablespoons per day.

Use MCTs as you would use butter, or mixed with maltodextrin products such as Butter Buds, to bring out a superior butter taste. Use MCTs on your toast or salad, for sautéing, or as a topping for entrées—let your imagination run wild! Because MCTs have a low boiling point, they should not be used for frying (which is not a healthy cooking technique anyway).

Start with 1 teaspoon, preferably with meals. Slowly increase the amount over several days to the desired level.

Taking too much, especially on an empty stomach, can result in a stomachache or diarrhea.

Other Ingredients

8-carbon and 10-carbon medium-chain triglycerides from coconut oil and glycerine.

My Morning Energy Source

Posted by tsalach on Mar 05, 2016 | Verified Purchase

Each day I have an hour to get ready for work and so I can only make a cup of hot yuan yang drink (coffee & tea mix) with 1 tbsp of this functional gourmet MCT oil. Get me going. I do feel energized. It is like intermittent fasting for me each morning. Other products that I have added into my drink are: coconut-ghee, Source Naturals Arthred and stevia. Thank You.

Thanks for your feedback!

Attention - low boiling point

Posted by iHerb Customer on Jun 16, 2015 | Verified Purchase

Know what, I overlooked "low boiling point" on the description. I bought a hot soup which was packed in a styrofoam cup. I poured 1 tablespoon of MCT in it and the cup started to melt within 2 mins.. Thus, don't use it on any styorfoam container if you're drinking soup, coffee or anything that is hot. As for the pros, i find that it helped in my constipation and hope it eventually help me in loses my stubborn fats.

Thanks for your feedback!
