Coconut MCTs

How about taking some of the key benefits of coconut oil and distilling them into a concentrated source that packs a powerful punch?

MCTs, or medium chain triglycerides, are efficiently used by the body for energy production. They are rapidly metabolized and not stored as fat. They have become a staple with people looking for a natural energy boost that doesn’t cause jitters or the crash commonly associated with energy drinks.

MCTs are metabolized differently in our bodies than other fatty acids. They bypass our regular metabolic systems and are instead directed straight to the liver where they stimulate the creation of ketones. Ketones are treated as carbohydrates and burned by the body as fuel (energy).
