MCT oil has been found to have quite a few health benefits. It is similar to coconut oil, which is a great source of healthy fats. MCT oil is more concentrated but still contains many of the same benefits.
Carlson Labs produces great MCT oil supplements. Each soft gel provides 1,000mg of concentrated MCT oil composed of 95% caprylic and capric acid. These supplements support energy production and fast metabolism, as well as promote brain health.
So what is MCT oil?
MCT stands for Medium Chain Triglycerides, which are partially man-made fatty acids. These medium chain fats get their name from their chemical structure because they contain between six and twelve carbons. A short chain fat contains up to six carbons and long chain fats contain between thirteen and twenty-one carbons.
They are generally made by processing coconut oil and palm kernel oils in a laboratory. At room temperature, it is a translucent and tasteless liquid. It can be found in coconuts, coconut oil, palm kernel oil, butter, and other high-fat dairy products from grass-fed cows and goats. Though, it is important to make the distinction between the unhealthy industrial versions of these oils and the organic and unrefined oils.
So why should we take MCT oil? As mentioned at the beginning of this article, MCT oil has various health benefits. It is one of the cleanest sources for supplying fuel to our bodies, which naturally supports energy production. It also supports fast metabolism, brain health, and overall wellness. MCTs are easily digested, metabolized, and absorbed.
Carlson Labs guarantees freshness, potency, and purity for each soft gel. This product retails at $13.90 for 60 soft gels and $24.90 for 120 soft gels.
Publisher’s Note: Trina Becksted, Lead Publisher for Holistic Healing News, has been trying Carlson Labs MCT Oil Supplements and has noticed a difference in how she is sleeping at night. The tri fatty acids must have had a great effect on her brain since she took them at lunch time. The first night, she slept better than she could remember. The second night, she slept very well again. The only thing she had done differently was take these supplements. Though they might not be designed for sleep, the sense of well-being and deep sleep that Trina got was fantastic.
