MCT Oil 16oz
Vegetarian / Vegan. HOW IT WORKS: MCTs (Medium-Chain Triglycerides) are fats that are metabolized differently than most dietary fats. Unlike longer chain triglycerides, MCTs require little or no enzymatic breakdown and are easily absorbed across the wall of the small intestine and delivered straight to the liver where they can be used directly for energy production (instead of being stored as fat).* In essence, they act similar to carbohydrates, but without the requirement of insulin and with no affect on blood sugar. Studies have demonstrated that MCT Oil consumption along with a healthy diet can help to maintain a healthy body weight, while sparing lean tissue.* Formulated by doctors and clinical scientists exclusively for licensed healthcare practitioners.
SUGGESTED USAGE: As a dietary supplement, take 1 tablespoon (15 mL) 1 to 3 times daily, or as directed by your healthcare practitioner.
CAUTIONS/INTERACTIONS: If you are diabetic or if you have liver disease, please contact your healthcare practitioner prior to using this product. MCTs can cause gastrointestinal distress when used in high doses. Taking this product with food can reduce these effects.
