Vita Globe's MCT oil is a dietary supplement that is made up of Medium Chain Triglycerides, which are fats that can be found in coconut oil. Unlike other fats, they go directly from the stomach to the liver. From there, they are used as a source of energy or turned into ketones.
Ketones are substances produced when the liver breaks down fat, and they can be used by the brain for energy instead of glucose or sugar. As the calories in MCTs are used straightaway, they are less likely to be stored as fat. This principle is the basis of the ketogenic diet, which many people believe is an effective way to lose weight.
