What is organic MCT Oil Powder?
MCT stands for medium-chain triglycerides, which are the medium-length chains of healthy fats found in coconut oil. Organic MCT oil is sourced from certified organic coconuts and has many unique properties that are good for overall health.
MCT Oil Powder is made by combining organic MCT oil with 100% certified organic acacia gum, which is an excellent source of gut-friendly prebiotic fibre. MCT Oil Powder can be conveniently added to your protein smoothies, morning coffee, afternoon tea, or Authentic Chai for a more indulgent creamy consistency, as well as the health benefits of MCT oil.
What is the difference between MCT powder & MCT oil?
Both MCT powder and MCT oil are colourless, odourless, and have minimal flavour, making them the perfect healthy fat to add to food, smoothies, and other drinks. The main difference is that MCT Oil Powder is more convenient and less greasy - so you won't need to clean up an oil spill in your bag!
MCT Oil Powder is also 20% organic acacia gum, so you're not only getting a super healthy fat that supports your gut lining, but you're also getting the prebiotic fibre that feeds the beneficial bacteria that live in your gut. MCT Oil Powder gives you all the health benefits of MCT oil and more, without the greasy cleanup.
What are the benefits of MCT oil?
Benefit 1: it’s naturally free from gluten, dairy and soy
MCT Oil Powder is made from coconut oil and acacia gum, meaning it’s naturally vegan-friendly and naturally free from gluten, dairy and soy.
Benefit 2: it’s an excellent option for a ketogenic diet
MCT oil increases the production of ketones to provide a clean source of energy for the brain and body, which is especially helpful for those following a ketogenic diet.
Benefit 3: it supports digestive health and keeps you regular
As MCT’s are processed in the liver, MCT Oil Powder gives your digestive system a break while the prebiotic fibre in acacia gum helps feed the good bacteria that live in your gut.
Benefit 4: it’s a good source of healthy fats to fuel the body
Medium Chain Triglycerides play a role in many important metabolic and functional processes within the body, including energy production. A clean and natural source of energy, MCT Oil Powder is not only a great addition to your coffee, but it’s also a quick and healthy way to make your smoothies extra thick and creamy.
What are the benefits of healthy fats in MCT oil?
The benefits of MCT Oil Powder mostly come from its healthy fats, which are nourishing to the whole body.
The healthy fats in MCT oil are a clean and natural source of energy that's more easily absorbed and transported throughout the body than the longer-chain fatty acids found in many other foods.
MCT oil is processed in the liver for an instant and sustained source of energy, making MCT Oil Powder such a great pre-workout supplement!
How does MCT oil work in your body?
Unlike longer-chain fatty acids, MCTs are easily digested by the liver and used as an immediate source of energy. When MCTs aren't used immediately for energy, they're converted into ketones, which cross the blood-brain barrier to be used as an alternative fuel source for the brain, along with muscles and other organs.
Although most other foods require digestive enzymes to be broken down, MCT oil gives the digestive system a break while it reduces inflammation throughout the body. It also doesn't require any energy to be absorbed, stored or used in the body, making it a fantastic source of clean, natural energy.
