4 reasons to have MCT oil in your life
So, you want to lose weight, feel more energised and stay full longer? MCT oil may be exactly what you need! It’s a super-powerful addition to your daily life that can help you burn more fat – faster!
Also: if you’re doing keto (or thinking about it) it’s an indispensable help in achieving and maintaining ketosis.
SO, WHAT IS MCT?
MCT is short for medium-chain triglycerides. MCT oil is a purified form of saturated fatty acids, typically from coconut or palm oil. Your body doesn’t store MCT oil as body fat (MCTs skip that step), instead, it’s immediately available to you as energy and boasts benefits such as:
- Increased energy
- Boosted endurance
- Faster metabolism
- Improved satiety
- Brain function support
- Gut health, and more
Read on to find 5 science-based reasons to start taking MCT oil today!
1. FASTER WEIGHT LOSS
If you’re after shedding some pounds, you’ll love this fact: studies show that MCTs can boost your fat and calorie burning, regardless of what diet you’re following. If you’re following keto, you’ll be happy to know it can help you achieve and maintain ketosis – in this state, your metabolism and fat burning are heightened.
2. INCREASED ENDURANCE
Would you like to have longer workout sessions and up the intensity of your workouts? Of course you would. MCT oil helps improve your stamina and endurance, but how? MCT oil can be used as a fuel source, which spares muscle glycogen. What does it mean? It means you’ll be able to push further and go longer before you deplete your muscles’ energy supplies.
3. APPETITE CONTROL
If you’re struggling with staying on the weight loss wagon because you suffer from energy crashes, MCT oil is perfect for you. It fills you up for longer by raising ketones. In turn, they suppress the hunger hormone ghrelin. The result? You’re more energised, fuller and happier with less food!
4. KICK OF MENTAL ENERGY
Taking it in the morning, before you’ve had any food, will put you in a focused and alert state. It’s like upgrading yourself for the day!
