”MCT oil and powder are dietary supplements made up of MCT fats. MCT’s are a type of saturated fats with unique physicochemical and metabolic properties that impart a wide range of health benefits.

Since, the early 1970’s MCT’s are used along with usual medications for treating food absorption disorders including diarrhea, steatorrhea (fat indigestion), celiac disease, liver disease, post surgery recovery, infant formulas and for treatment of Epilepsy in the form of ketogenic diet. MCTs are a good choice for anyone who has increased energy needs, as following major surgery, during normal or stunted growth, to enhance athletic performance, and to counteract the decreased energy production that results from aging. Recent studies have shown that MCT plays a role in lowering weight, and decreasing metabolic syndrome by boosting metabolism and appetite control, improve cognitive function, improve insulin sensitivity and blood cholesterol levels, stop progression of alzheimer’s disease and reverse the symptoms”.
