MCT stands for medium chain triglycerides or medium chain fatty acids. They’re types of fat most often derived from coconut oil. Interest in medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) has grown rapidly over the last few years, this is due to the widely-publicized benefits of MCT oil, as it is colorless, odorless and stays liquid at room temperature, making it the perfect fat to add to food, smoothies, and coffee for extra energy aid in weight loss and brain-boosting benefits, in addition, MCT oil has become a popular supplement among athletes and bodybuilders.
There are only four strains of MCTs:
- Caproic acid (C6)
- Caprylic Acid (C8)
- Capric Acid (C10)
- Lauric Acid (C12)
All four are are categorized as MCTs, but only C6, C8, and C10 bypass your digestive tract and go straight to your liver where they’re broken down into energy-packed ketones, then sent out to the rest of your body via your bloodstream. That quick conversion of fat to ketones for energy is what most people look for when they buy MCTs.
C12, on the other hand, behaves much more like a typical fatty acid, going through your stomach, breaking down in your small intestine, then absorbing in your blood to get turned into energy.
