Description

MCTs, or medium-chain triglycerides, are easily digested fats. The metabolism of longer chain fats is inhibited by carbohydrate, which can contribute to weight gain. MCTs bypass this mechanism for quick breakdown and energy release.

 

  • MCTs increase metabolic rate (burn more calories)
  • Compared to other fat sources, MCTs help reduce body weight
  • Including more MCTs increases ketogenesis and fat burning

 

MCTs contain 6-12 carbons depending on who you ask. The most common are the C8 and C10 varieties, also known as caprylic acid and capric acid. Optitune’s MCT contains a balanced quantity of C8 (550mg) and C10 (440mg) MCTs for optimal lipolysis without any stomach discomfort.

Ingredient Profile

MCT

Medium Chain Triglycerides, or MCTs, are rapidly metabolized fats that encourage more body fat burning.

  • MCT metabolism is not inhibited by concomitant carbohydrate consumption
  • This means that both fats and carbs can be burned simultaneously with MCTs versus long chain triglycerides.
  • This may help with increasing the body’s ability to burn fat and with body weight control
  • One study has noted a nearly 4kg loss of body fat with MCT supplementation.

 

FAQs

Q: What is the best way to use MCT?

A: As a dietary supplement, take 1-3 servings (1-3 softgels) daily.

 

Q: Does MCT need to be taken with food?

A: For best absorption, consume MCT with a meal.

 

Q: Are there any Optitune products that can be stacked with MCT?

A: Yes! For even more healthy fats, stack MCT with Omega-3. It is also prudent to use fat soluble vitamins (like Vitamin D) with a fat source, such as MCT.
