Medium-Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) are metabolized quite differently than most other kinds of dietary fats. They don't need to be broken down a lot by enzymes first, and don't have a hard time entering and leaving the small intestine before they can be converted into energy by the liver, like longer chain triglycerides do, which tend to get stored as fat. Instead, MCTs function more like carbohydrates do -- being easily absorbed through the wall of the small intestine and delivered quickly to the liver to produce energy -- but without needing insulin or affecting the blood sugar level. This explains why studies have found that consuming MCT Oil along with a healthy diet can help maintain a healthy body weight without sacrificing lean muscle tissue.
