What are the benefits of MCT Oil?
Promotes Weight Loss in Several Important Ways
MCT oil may support weight loss by increasing fullness, fat loss, energy burning, ketone production and by improving your gut environment.
Instant Source of Energy That Can Also Be Used to Fuel Your Brain
MCT oil is easily absorbed and transported throughout the body. It can be used as an instant source of energy or can be converted into ketones to fuel your brain.
May Reduce Lactate Build-up in Athletes and Help Use Fat for Energy
MCT oil can increase fat burning and reduce the need for carbs during exercise.
Could Help Manage Epilepsy and Alzheimer’s Disease
Studies have shown that MCT oil and a ketogenic diet may help manage conditions such as epilepsy, Alzheimer’s disease, and autism.
While the ketogenic diet has gained popularity amongst people wishing to lose weight, it was first introduced as a way of managing epilepsy. Scientists found that fasting increases ketone production and that this may reduce the frequency of epileptic seizures. Since MTCs can be converted into ketones, they may be beneficial in managing epilepsy.
Alzheimer’s disease impairs your brain's ability to use sugar. An MCT ketogenic diet offers an alternative energy source: ketones. This allows brain cells to survive better. It also blocks a receptor in the brain that causes memory loss. While genetic factors play a role, evidence suggests that 20–70 grams of supplemental MCTs that include caprylic or capric acid can modestly improve the symptoms of mild-to-moderate Alzheimer’s.Contains Powerful Fatty Acids That Fight Yeast and Bacterial Growth
MCTs have been shown to have antimicrobial and antifungal effects. Coconut oil, which contains a large amount of MCTs, has been shown to reduce the growth of Candida albicans by 25%. This is a common yeast that can cause thrush and various skin infections
May Reduce Risk Factors for Heart Disease, Such as Weight and Cholesterol
Some factors that increase your risk include high cholesterol, blood pressure, inflammation, being overweight and smoking. MCT oil has been shown to support weight and fat loss. This may, in turn, help reduce your risk of heart disease. Moreover, MCT oil can also increase the production of heart-protective HDL or “good” cholesterol. It can even significantly reduce C-reactive protein (CRP), an inflammatory marker that increases the risk of heart disease.
May Help Control Blood Sugar Levels and Support Diabetes Management
MCT oil may also have benefits for those with diabetes. A lot of people with type 2 diabetes are overweight or obese, which makes diabetes harder to manage. However, MCTs have been shown to reduce fat storage and increase fat burning.

Because most MCT oil has a low burning point, it’s not a good idea to fry things with it.
