In this video, we’re going to talk about the differences between MCT oil and coconut oil.

MCT oil is an oil made up of medium-chain triglycerides. Another name for MCT is medium-chain fatty acid.

There are three main categories of fatty acids:
• SCFA – Short-chain fatty acids
• MCFA – Medium-chain fatty acids (MCTs)
• LCFA – Long-chain fatty acids

With MCT oil, you only get medium-chain fatty acids.

Coconut oil is made up of 15% MCTs (and 45% LCFA).

In summary, MCT oil is 100% MCTs, whereas coconut only is only 15% MCTs.

What are the benefits of taking MCT oil? The primary benefits are:
• Fast digestion and absorption
• Converts to ketones quickly
• Great for people without a gallbladder (doesn’t require bile salts)
• Boosts energy
• Supports brain
• Helps reduce insulin resistance
• Reduces hunger

The benefits of coconut oil are:
• Great for cooking because it doesn’t smoke when it gets hot
• Increases HDL cholesterol
• Great for skin
• Helps lower plaque
• Supports the immune system
• Digests slowly

You can add MCT oil or coconut oil to your coffee or salad dressing, or you can take it directly.

Make sure you introduce MCT oil to your diet gradually, so your body gets used to it. Taking too much too quickly can cause digestive problems.

If you’d like to add MCT oil to your diet, give my MCT oil a try and let me know how it works for you.
