MetaPhysics MCT Oil is made by lipid fractionation of Palm and or coconut oil, producing a product that is 100% Medium Chain Triglycerides. Most triglycerides are Long chain Triglycerides (LCT) which contain chains of 16–20 molecules. MCTs only contain chains of 6–12 molecules. MCTs are digested and metabolized differently than LCTs. MCTs bypass the normal complex digestion that most fats require and they enter the bloodstream at a faster rate than other fats. LCTs are mostly stored into fat cells, but MCTs enter the bloodstream as medium chain free fatty acids and are immediately available as a source of energy for muscles.
