NutraBio MCT Powder is designed to deliver a high-quality, calorie-dense source of medium chain triglycerides to support the energy demands of athletes or those following a ketogenic diet. MCTs may also be beneficial for weight/fat loss as they appear to play a role in increasing metabolic rate and the speed at which fats are broken down to release fatty acids into the bloodstream for energy use.
The medium-chain triglycerides found in NutraBio MCT Powder are extracted from coconut and contain 9 grams of MCTs high in C8 and C10 with zero net carbs, maltodextrin, or sugar. What's more, our MCT Powder has no fillers, excipients, hidden ingredients or additives and is allergen, gluten, and BSE/TSE free. What you see on the label is exactly what you get... high-grade MCTs made in our cGMP and FDA inspected facility.
What are Medium Chain Triglycerides?
Medium chain triglycerides are a type of fatty acid that are found naturally in foods like coconut oil, palm oil, and some dairy products. Because MCTs are shorter in length than long-chain fatty acids (i.e. vegetable oils) and water-soluble, they are metabolized differently in the body. Once absorbed into the bloodstream, MCTs bypass the digestion process of longer chain fatty acids and go directly to the liver where they are rapidly broken down and thus, provide a quick source of energy and are less likely to be stored in fat cells. This is why it is often said MCTs act more like a carbohydrate than a fat.
