Alpha Supreme 100% Medium Chain Triglycerides. "MCTs" are naturally occurring saturated fats in coconut and palm kernel oil. Easier to digest than other typically used fats, they are readily absorbed and break down rapidly in the liver, rather than being stored as fat. Acting like a carbohydrate, they provide the necessary energy and calories while decreasing the fat stored in the body.
High quality raw coconut oil has a spectrum of nine different fatty acids. A majority of these are medium chain fatty acids which are beneficial for weight management as opposed to long chain fatty acids.
MCT may be used to reduce hungers pangs and support weight loss without losing muscle mass. MCT may be used as a booster when ketone levels are low.
