MCT vs Coconut Oil
Q: Why use MCT instead of Coconut Oil, doesn’t MCT come from coconut oil?
Both coconut oil and MCT oil have medium chain (size) fats, but they are different concentrations of certain ones.
MCTs go right to the liver, giving you instant energy and ketones for fast energy and brain support.
Most of the fat in your diet comes from long-chain fatty acids, which contain 13–21 carbons.
Short chain fatty acids have fewer than 6 carbon atoms.
Medium-chain fatty (MCT) have 6–12 carbon atoms.
These are the main medium-chain fatty acids:
- C6: Caproic acid
- C8: Caprylic acid
- C10: Capric acid
- C12: Lauric acid
Coconut oil is better for cooking but it isn’t the best for energy and brain.
