Medium Chain Tryglycerides (MCT) are derived from natural plant oils, and are classed as fatty acids. They are very different to typical fatty acids and contain a much lower calorie content. MCTs are readily absorbed and used for energy, more so resembling a carbohydrate than a fat source. MCTs provides the athlete with a source of quick energy, much faster than maltodextrin or any high glycemic carbohydrate making them ideal for those looking to increase muscle mass and bulk up.Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) typically contain a mixture of caprylic (C8:0) and capric (C10:0) fatty acids derived from either palm kernel oil or coconut oil. MCT have unique metabolic and functional properties in the human body.
