Benefits of MCT Oil - Brain Energy, Gut Health, and Weight Loss.
MCT can readily cross the blood-brain barrier and be oxidized by the brain. Alzheimer’s disease is believed to be a type of diabetes of the brain where the brain cells lose their ability to uptake glucose, their main source of and subsequently die. A 2004 study published in The Journal of Neurobiology of Ageing found that MCT helped to improve memory problems including Alzheimer’s disease in older adults.
It only makes sense that a food that supplies fuel for your brain also helps to absorb vitamins and minerals better. Thus, it makes you feel more cheer headed, energetic, and positive. In mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease, MCT has been investigated to improve cognition based on the theory that decreased glucose metabolism in the brain may result in cognitive and memory impairment, so using MCT as an alternative energy source as ketones for the brain should potentially counteract this impairment. Small studies have shown modest improvement in memory recall after consumption of MCT.
MCT oil provides an easily absorbed source of energy for those with fat severe absorption disorders. This, an increased supply of MCT particularly important in patients with disturbances of digestion and absorption such as disturbed bile secretion, classic coeliac disease, short bowel syndrome, inflammatory disease, and severe food allergies, as well as in prematurely born neonates. It has been found that MCT intake results in increased energy expenditure and fat oxidation which may promote long-term weight maintenance in obese women.
MCT is believed to help the body produce ketones. In fact, MCT is sometimes called “the ultimate ketogenic fat” because of its heating effect in the body and ability to be rapidly used for energy, especially when someone is not eating a lot of carbohydrates (9). To fully maximize the possible weight loss, it is advised to have a suitable exercise routine to increase the caloric deficit. MCT helps to reduce appetite and even raise the metabolic rate.
Dietary MCT previously found to promote lipid catabolism, energy expenditure and weight loss can ameliorate metabolic health via their capacity to improve both intestinal eco-system and permeability. It has been proven that an MCT- enriched diet modulates fats, which is manifested as a decrease in the concentration of triglycerides and cholesterol. MCT is also popular among bodybuilders and endurance athletes to increase energy levels and to decrease body fat while increasing lean muscle mass.
Compared to other types of oils and fats, MCTs have positive effects on fat burning and weight reduction. As part of a healthy lifestyle and diet, MCT oil can help increase satiety and even raise the metabolic rate at which the body functions. The MCTs for LCTs in a targeted energy balance diet proved to offer better prevention of long-term weight gain due to increases in energy expenditure and fat burning.
