What Is MCT?

#MCT simply stands for medium chain triglycerides, as opposed to long chain triglycerides (LCT), which are found in most foods. MCT is comprised of primarily caprylic and capric fatty acids, and is a light-yellow, odorless, translucent liquid at room temperature. MCT oil occurs naturally in coconut oil and other foods.

Athletes swear that it gives them more energy. So what is this magic elixir that so many claim can boost your metabolism and turn your body into a mean, lean, fat burning machine? It is MCT oil.
