How it Works: MCTs (medium-chain triglycerides) are fats that are metabolized differently than most dietary fats.* Unlike longer chain triglycerides, MCTs require little or no enzymatic breakdown and are easily absorbed across the wall of the small intestine and delivered straight to the liver where they can be used directly for energy production (instead of being stored as fat).* In essence, they act similar to carbohydrates, but without the requirement of insulin and with no effect on blood sugar.* Studies have demonstrated that MCT oil consumption along with a healthy diet can help to maintain a healthy body weight, while sparing lean tissue.* Protocol For Life Balance® Organic MCT Oil is derived exclusively from organic coconut oil.
Suggested Usage: Take 1 tablespoon (15 mL) daily, or as directed by your healthcare practitioner.
Cautions / Interactions: If you are diabetic, epileptic or if you have liver disease, please contact your healthcare practitioner prior to using this product. MCTs can cause GI discomfort when used in high doses. Taking this product with food can reduce these effects.
