MCT- not many people know about this gem, but it’s equivalent to Coconut oil on steroids. If you want to take in a fat that’s actually helpful when it comes to working out, this is a great alternative.
As Dr. Axe said, “MCTs” are medium-chain triglycerides, a form of saturated fatty acid that has numerous health benefits, ranging from improved cognitive function to better weight management. Coconut oil is one great source of MCTs — roughly 62–65 percent of the fatty acids in coconut oil are MCTs — but recently more concentrated “MCT oils” have also been growing in popularity.
Some will say this helps you lose weight others might suggest it’s simply an alternative to Coconut oil. It’s been used by the bodybuilding community for many years and people are often trying to determine why this secret took so long to get out.
Mix it with Protein powder, water and add veggies or fruit to make this truly tasty.
