In today`s blog post we wanted to share with you a very good article which you will find here at this link at Cognitune Smarter Health.
Benefits Of MCT Oil
The article goes into great detail about the benefits of MCT oil supplements. MCT oil is derived from our favourite oil, coconut oil, and as the above article points out: `The health benefits of MCT oil are numerous. It has become sort of a wonder supplement for weight management and cognition. Researchers and industry experts agree that MCT oil benefits the body and mind in many ways. MCTs, which derive from coconut oil, offer many cognitive, heart, and digestive benefits. These stem from coconut oil’s antibacterial, antiviral, and antimicrobial properties.`
Medium Chain Fatty Acids Essential To Our Well Being
MCT stands for Medium Chain Triglycerides which is the same thing as Medium Chain Fatty Acids, and these fatty acids are essential to our well being in so many ways. Unfortunately, particularly here in the west, the vast majority of people don`t consume anywhere near enough of these fatty acids, mainly due to the fact that we have seen saturated fats as the source of all evil for many, many years, and this viewpoint is only just beginning to get debunked.
But again as the article says: ` Research has demonstrated that some saturated fats are essential for health. Fatty acids support digestion, heart health, weight management, and brain function. That statement likely flies in the face of everything you’ve ever read, but it’s true. Hence, coconut oil and MCT oil’s rise to fame.`
The 6 main benefits of MCT oil are the following:
- Helps Weight Loss, Ketosis & Energy
- Supports Gut Health & Digestion
- Boosts Immune System Function
- Increases Brain Function & Mood
- Improves Heart Health
- Reduces Risk of Diabetes
Keep Using Coconut Oil In Your Diet
Now we are certainly not recommending you swap coconut oil for MCT oil supplements, but there is a place for them both within your diet which will help to maintain your health and energy levels.
