“MCT” is short for medium-chain triglycerides. Triglycerides are the molecules that make up most fats, like those that occur naturally in coconut oil, palm oil, goat milk and breast milk.
Your body turns MCT Oil into molecules called ketones. Initial focused, small-scale studies have proven that ketones help burn fat, curb cravings and power your brain Some MCT oils are commonly sourced from palm oil, which has negative impacts on the environment. Bulletproof MCT oils are made from pure coconut.
If you’re following a lower-carb, high-fat diet like the ketogenic diet or the Bulletproof Diet, supplementing your diet with this oil can ensure you’re getting enough fat to stay in ketosis.
