MCT Oil By Metagenics 1 pt (16 fl. oz.) (473 mL)
Metagenics MCT Oil provides over 90% caprylic (C8) and capric (C10) acid triglycerides. Emerging science suggests that medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) may benefit the body in numerous ways. MCT may help support cognitive health and certain cognitive processes, and pre-clinical research suggests that MCT may benefit mitochondrial function. MCT supplementation temporarily increases levels of ketones, which may serve as an alternative energy source in the brain and in muscle. Supplementing with MCT at multiple meals during the day may aid reductions in body weight and body fat, especially in those with an increased body-mass index (BMI).†† MCT may also help to temporarily increase satiety and reduce food intake, and may temporarily enhance fat oxidation as compared to common long-chain fats.*
MCT Oil is a flavorless, odorless dietary supplement that can be easily added to food or beverages for convenience. Add to a salad, mix with a shake, or take alone for 10 grams of MCT per serving.
Directions: Take 2-3 servings per day or as recommended by your healthcare practitioner.
