"Clean MCT is the highest purity of caprylic acid available. While batches can vary slightly, the average purity is 99.2% - 99.6% per the certificate of analysis."
Ingredients Concern: None
Cons: Too much MCT oil may cause gastric discomfort for some individuals and first-time users should start with 1/2 serving to assess the tolerance.
Unlike Long Chain Triglycerides (LCTs), MCTs are easily absorbed by the gastrointestinal tract and quickly converted into an energy source (1). The body metabolizes MCTs faster than other type of fats, and the brain uses MCTs as fuel more rapidly than other forms of sugars (2, 3). The optimal size of MCTs promote accelerated metabolism as well as the rapid production of energy, thereby preventing the fat that comprises MCTs from being stored (4-6).

MCTs are more readily absorbed than LCTs due to their smaller size. Therefore, MCTs are more quickly converted and used for energy production, and less likely to be stored as fat than LCTs (1). The rapid metabolism of MCTs also promotes faster rates of ketosis, and the breakdown of MCTs encourages craving control as well (2, 3). In comparison to different types of MCTs such as C10 and C12, caprylic acid triglycerides (MCT C8) is most effectively metabolized in the body to produce energy (4).
