Organic MCT Oil Derived from Coconut Oil
What is Organic MCT Oil?
Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) are fats that are naturally found in coconut and palm kernel oils, but NOW Sports Organic MCT Oil is derived exclusively from organic coconut oil. They're more easily and rapidly digested than other types of fats. MCTs are readily absorbed from the GI tract and are metabolized very quickly by the liver, where they are reported to encourage the use of fat for energy rather than for storage. Numerous studies suggest that substituting MCT Oil for other fats in a healthy diet may therefore help to support healthy weight and body composition.
NOW Organic MCT Oil is derived from organic coconut oil that is sustainably sourced to protect our planet and preserve native wildlife habitats.
