Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) are used as a supplement under the name MCTs oil.
They are widespread among athletes, who want to reduce their excess fat, but to keep their energy and preserve their muscle mass.
In fact, the popularity of fats goes viral after their use for the treatment of various diseases. MCTs are assimilated differently in the body than other types of fat, and this contributes to their positive effects.
The oil, containing MCTs, is a light yellow, translucent liquid (at room temperature) with no odor. MCTs oil is created out of natural sources of this type of fat – coconut oil and palm oil.
Currently MCTs are used by many athletes to support their athletic performance, but initially, the supplementation with MTCs has started with curative intent. MCTs provide quick energy for the body and are less likely to be in the fat deposits.
MTCs are used as a supplement by athletes who want to reduce their body fat and to maintain their muscle mass. If MCTs oil is added to a meal, this creates a thermogenic effect.
