MCT Oil USP is Optimum Therapeutic Solutions' high-quality blend of medium-chain triglycerides. MCTs are fatty acids that metabolize faster and more efficiently than their long-chain counterparts. While most fats and oils contain LCTs‚ MCTs more closely resemble carbohydrates in length making them easier to absorb for faster energy conversion in the body. Because the MCT calories are converted into fuel much faster‚ they are not stored as fat and can be utilized almost immediately. By containing fewer calories than LTCs, MCTs can also help boost your metabolism and power your mitochondria! These fats support more fat burning by increasing your body's thermogenesis (heat production). MCT Oil USP is a great way to add beneficial fatty acids to any diet and make meals tastier and more healthy - remember‚ MCT Oil can be added to sauces and dressings but shouldn't be used when frying or cooking.
