MCTs stands for Medium Chain Triglycerides. These are Medium Chain fatty Acids that are easy to digest and get converted into ketones. Ketones are the energy bundles and work as the quick and clean energy source for the body & brain.

Understanding MCT fats

  • Caprylic Acid (C8) – C8 is good for maintaining to maintain your gut health and brain health, as it has anti-microbial properties. It is easily digested and helps you suppress your cravings and hunger.
  • Capric Acid (C10) – C10 takes time to convert into the energy source.
  • Lauric Acid (C12) – C12 is not converted into energy quickly like above three fatty acids. It is stored in the liver for a certain period of time before being turned into energy. It has antimicrobial properties. Coconut oil is the option if you want to get the benefits of it.

C14 and above are considered as Long Chain Triglycerides (LCTs). They are not as easy to digest as MCTs.

As mentioned above, Medium-Chain Triglyceride (MCT) is one of the forms of saturated fatty acids. They are quickly digested because of their shorter length and do not get stored in the body unlike long-chain triglycerides (LCT). MCT Oil consists of Caprylic & Capric acids also known as C8 & C10 which are extracted using organic coconut oil.

The traditional Coconut Oil usually has 30-40% MCTs in it. 5 liter of traditional virgin coconut oil is used to create 1 liter of Coco Earth MCT Oil. Coco Earth MCT oils are the extract of Coconut Oil that contains only and only MCTs. Therefore, Coco Earth MCT oil is 100% MCTs from Coconuts. C8 & C10 proportion in Coco Earth MCT Oil stands at 60%:40%.

Additionally, these are extremely low on carbs ( almost zero carb), making it a great supplement for Keto Diet or any other low-carb ( LCHF) diet. It also helps you to get into or stay in Ketosis.
