Coconut oil is amazing for our health. If you still don't know its benefits and want to learn more, watch the video that is being suggested to you.
Many are against it, many are in its favor. As we have recently seen on our channel, for most researchers, the medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) are responsible for most of the benefits of coconut oil. Did you know that?
Coconut oil contributes to weight loss, playing an essential role in the supply of energy for physical activities.
Besides that, it also presents benefits to the cardiovascular system, improving the symptoms of thyroid, helping in cases of bad digestion, and also has a calming effect, which reduces the bad cholesterol levels in the body. Amazing, isn't it?
Coconut oil is made of basically 90% saturated fat, in which we can find the caprylic and capric acids.
However, around 47% of this amount of fat corresponds to lauric acid, which has a lower ability to supply energy to the muscles and brain, compared to caprylic and capric acids.
That's why medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) supplements are being used by many people as a more efficient option to coconut oil, especially in ketogenic diets. Did you know that?
There are four different types of MCTs: Caproic Acid, Caprylic Acid, Capric Acid, and Lauric Acid.
Caprylic acid is a fatty acid found in animal and vegetable fat. It is found in great amounts in palm oil and coconut oil and has antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral properties.
And the best of all is that it keeps the regular balance between the different bacteria that inhabit the colon. Isn't it amazing?
That's why caprylic acid is so good for our health. It can be even consumed as a capsule supplement, or, if you wish so, you can also consume MCT oil to get the same benefits (since it contains caprylic acid).
It is odorless and tasteless and goes well with anything, especially with coffee. A combination of coffee and MCT has thermogenic properties, working as an excellent source of energy, and can be used as a pre-workout drink.
