Douglas Labs Medium Chain Triglycerides supplies 1000 mg of medium chain triglycerides per softgel.
Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) are fats with a carbon chain length of 6 to 12 carbon atoms. Most fats that are consumed in the diet are long chain triglycerides (greater than 12 carbons) and are broken down in the intestine and then remade into a special form that can be transported in the blood. But MCTs are absorbed intact and taken to the liver, where they are used directly for energy. In this sense, they are processed very similarly to carbohydrates. Preliminary evidence indicates the MCTs may be useful fat substitute for individuals unable to digest fat. This includes people with fat-malabsorption and enzymatic insufficiency. Other studies indicate that a diet supplemented medium chain triglycerides may reduce weight and body fat more than a diet supplemented with long chain triglycerides.
MCT softgels may be a useful dietary supplement for individuals wishing to supplement their diet with medium chain triglycerides.
