What is MCT oil?

MCT oil is fast-becoming one of the top 10 health supplements available on the market – but what is MCT oil?

Put simply, MCT is a pretty easy acronym used for its not-so-easy-to-remember actual name of ‘medium-chain triglycerides’. What this means in scientific terms is that MCT oil contains medium-length chains of fats, which are known as ‘triglycerides’. Because they have a shorter length than other fats, MCTs can be easily digested and contain many health benefits. 

Thanks to how your body processes MCT oil, many people add this health supplement to smoothies, shakes, coffee and salad dressings. As it is a liquid supplement, it can be easily added to your cooking without any hassle. 

There are four different types of MCT – the most common of which are caprylic and capric acid. Depending on which type of MCT oil you use, the health benefits can vary. For The Intelligent Health, our MCT oil contains highly concentrated caprylic acid, which serves your brain and body with quick and effective energy by increasing your blood ketone levels.

The Intelligent Health have produced a MCT oil with 20 years of research behind it, which is 100% pure. This versatile food supplement can provide you with absorbable fuel and act as a metabolism booster to keep you running throughout the day on ultra ketone energy.
