Derived entirely from sustainable organic coconuts, each 15 ml tablespoon dose of Garden of Life's Organic Coconut MCT Oil formulated by Dr. David Perlmutter (M.D.) provides 14 grams of non-hydrogenated saturated fat (with 0 g of trans fats), 13 grams of MCTs (including caprylic and capric acids), and 130 Calories, to supply a ready supply of energy for your body and brain which can help with your weight management goals.
A great source of easily digested fat which can be quickly absorbed and converted into usable energy for both the body and the brain, MCT Oil is becoming increasingly popular among several main user groups: athletes and/or body builders, wanting to fuel their workouts and help rebuild their muscles and prevent the breakdown of protein after; people following either a paleo or a ketogenic diet, seeking a concentrated alternate source of clean fat (or a vegan one); more casual dieters, wanting something to help them feel full which will increase their metabolic rate and get burned off, rather than be stored as fat; and those who want to improve mental clarity and perhaps even lower the risk of developing chronic degenerative conditions like Alzheimer's by reducing inflammation.
"MCTs" are naturally occurring saturated fats in certain foods like coconuts. Unlike long chain triglycerides (i.e., fats) which typically have between 13 and 21 carbon atoms to break down, these Medium Chain Triglycerides only have between 6 and 12, making them much easier to digest -- they can be sent right from the stomach to the liver to get broken down into ketones, a type of acid which can be used as a source of energy by the muscles and the brain.
