In this video, we’re talking about the MCT
Now, MCT oil has been around for a while,
it’s nothing new.
However, a lot of people are asking how it
can benefit them.
And so, what we’ll do in this video is we’ll
talk about all the different benefits that
MCT oil can offer you and we’ll give you some
details as well at the end on how I really
like to utilize it.
Now, when we look at MCT oil, what is stands
for is, medium-chain triglycerides.
Now, this is different than coconut oil because
essentially what’s happened is they’ve taken
some of the most powerful components of coconut
oil, isolated them so that you can get a really
powerful benefit that the MCTs actually have
to offer you.
Now, when we look at coconut oil, it’s about
85% long chain fatty acids and about 15% medium
chain and so, when we look at these medium
chain fatty acids, they offer a lot of health
benefits and we’re going to go ahead and discuss
those right now.
And so, the first here on our list is, weight
Now, MCTs are really powerful for weight loss
for a lot of reasons.
First of all, they’re really satiating so,
people who consume MCTs throughout the day,
they tend to consume a lot less calories.
The other thing is that it actually will boost
hormones like leptin which actually tells
you your body is full.
So essentially, that will also help you consume
a few less calories.
Now, it also supports weight loss because
it’s used as a quick energy source and so,
the MCTs are broken down in the liver and
to ketones and then they’re able to be utilized
as energy versus being stored in the body
as a fat.
And then, the last reason here is, it keeps
you in a fat burning state for longer so,
basically if someone who is on a ketogenic
diet, this can help you stay in a fat burning
state and also, if you’re someone who is trying
to get into a ketogenic diet you can actually
push those MCTs and it will help you get into
that fat burning state faster but, it will
also help keep you there longer once you’re
Now, the MCTs are also going to improve brain
It’s going to do this a couple ways.
First of all, the ketones that comes from
the MCTs are able to cross the blood brain
barrier, meaning they’re able to get to the
brain very easily.
So, you’re able to use them as a fast energy
It also travels fast in the body so, when
you consume these MTCs they don’t have to
be broken down in the gut with the bile, they’re
able to be quickly absorbed by the gut, go
to the liver, turn into ketones, get to where
they need to be as a quick energy source.
So, that’s another reason that people really
like taking MCT oil throughout the day when
their brain starts to crash into order to
give themselves a quick pick me up.
And so, last thing I’m going to mention here
about how it improves your brain function
is that the ketones are able to go directly
to the cell once again, this simply means
that the MCTs are quickly broken down and
quickly used as an energy source for your
brain and nervous system.
Now, when we look at the next major benefit
here it’s improving cardiovascular health.
Now, these ketones are very powerful for improving
cardiovascular health because they first of
all, decrease inflammation.
This is a big problem with people who are
having all these cardiovascular conditions
out there simply because their inflammatory
markers are typically off the charts.
So, it’s going to decrease inflammation like
the factors of c-reactive protein, LPa . It
also is going to decrease bad cholesterol
like your LDLs and increase good cholesterol
like your HDLs.
So, it’s very powerful for cardiovascular
health and shouldn’t be overlooked.
The next thing here that it’s going to really
benefit you with is by improving your overall
neurological health especially, if you’re
suffering from a neurological condition this
is very powerful.
If you have Alzheimer’s, if you have epilepsy,
if you have autism.
Any of these different neurological disorders
up here will really benefit from the MCT oil
simply because you’re able to take the MCT,
break it down into ketones, as you raise those
ketone levels up in the body your neurological
health really likes it and these different
conditions like epilepsy for instance, people
who use MCT oil or if they also are on a ketogenic
diet and their ketone levels are higher they
have much fewer seizures and so, that’s powerful
for many reasons there.
But, definitely use the MCTs to improve your
neurological health and well-being.
The next here is, it’s going to act as an
anti-fungal and an anti-bacterial.
This is powerful because what it’s going to
help do is decrease that candida in the gut
and candida throughout the body.
It also is going to help decrease fungus and
balance the overall microbiota of the gut.
And so, when we look at our gut, it’s this
big bacterial balancing game in there.
We have bag bacteria and good bacteria and
basically the coconut oil will really help
keep some of that bad bacteria at bay and
create overall balance.
So, the MCT oil is very powerful for that
Now, when we look at MCT oil, there’s many
different ways to consume it.
One of my favorites is you simply take it,
blend it up in some coffee and it’s great
to drink that way and when you put it in your
coffee that’s very important that you blend
Some people find that you can put them together,
coffee and MCT oil and they simply just dump
Well, it’s awful because it’ll be very oily
coffee, so make sure you blend it because
it makes it taste much better.
The other you can is, just supplement with
it and what I mean is, just dump it on a spoon
and consume it that way.
It’s great that way because it’s tasteless
and it’s easy to consume.
A lot people once again, will go ahead put
some of that in a coffee, or maybe even supplement
with it mid-day, give their brain a boost
first thing in the morning.
It’s really your choice.
And then, the last thing you can do is, use
it as a finishing oil.
It’s great to put on salads, it’s great to
put on meats and different things that you’re
cooking and so, you can use the MCT oils as
a finishing oil and one of things I didn’t
mention here is that you can actually cook
So, it has a very high smoke point just like
coconut oil and so, the MCT oil is great for
cooking as well.
What I’ll go ahead and do is I’ll actually
go and link my favorite MCT oil in the description
below so you can check that out and then make
sure that you’re using MCT oil if you want
to get these different benefits.
Once again, it’s really great for benefiting
your overall health and well-being.
