What Is MCT Oil?

MCT oil is quickly becoming an integral part of many people’s supplement routines. It’s derived from coconut oil and has a variety of purported uses and health benefits. But what is it, exactly, and what does it do? Read on to find out more about MCT oil and why it’s increasingly becoming so popular.

MCT stands for “medium-chain triglycerides,” a type of saturated fatty acid. These fatty acids have a molecular structure which is slightly shorter than the makeup of other types of traditional saturated fatty acids. As a whole, MCTs are metabolized differently than traditional fats, as they bypass the typical digestion process and are digested quickly and more efficiently. This means that the body can use them as an immediate source of energy, rather than subjecting the body to long-term digestion of more traditional fatty acids, which can be intense and slow-moving.

MCTs are an important part of the human diet, and many cultures have traditionally had diets very rich in them. For example, the traditional diet of the Polynesians is abundant in coconut oil, a major source of MCTs. However, only recently have scientists begun to understand why MCTs are so beneficial to the body and what kind of potential they truly have.

As for what MCT oil can do specifically, it’s purported to provide enhanced energy and mental clarity, have antiviral and antibacterial properties, facilitate weight loss, support gut health, and even assist with bringing down cholesterol levels. It’s clear to see why many people are now turning to MCT oil for a range of reasons.

Additionally, many people find that they can benefit from the mental clarity and enhanced focus that it can provide. This comes from the fact that the body can use MCTs as an almost immediate source of energy, since its digestion process is so quick. The theory is that because the energy source comes faster, the mind can more clearly and efficiently utilize the energy, leading to improved focus.

Finally, MCT oil can come in handy for those who are looking to bring down their cholesterol levels. Studies have shown that daily consumption of MCT oil can help to bring down LDL (the “bad” cholesterol) levels while simultaneously increasing the HDL (the “good” cholesterol) levels in one’s body.

Now that you know more about the science of MCT oil and the benefits it can offer, you can make the right decisions for you and your health goals. Ultimately, giving MCT oil a try may end up being your ticket to peak performance and improved wellbeing.

My husband suffers from severe leg cramps. And not restless leg syndrome. I stoped to talk to Nikki at HOPE LIVES! I was tell her about my husbands horrible leg cramps. She asked me if he would use PROPER CANNA NATURALS? The one Ms. Nikki... suggested was a cream the name is Rocky Mountain chill. It’s a muscle gel. I brought it home he looked at it two or three days tried it and almost instantly it took his cramps away. He spent two days with no leg cramps whatsoever using that cream. We ran out of the sample I have ordered the big bottle and I can’t wait for it to get here. It was hard to imagine that some thing all natural could do what it did for him and he feel better and get sleep. Not only him but me because he was not up and down all night . Thank you Nikki for the recommendation. It’s the best. I will be looking into their other products. Sincerely Mikieread more

I recently switched from another big box brand of CBD oil to Proper Canna. Within a few weeks I knew I had made a really great decision. My back use to hurt every day of the week. I have about 1-2 days a month after heavy exercise now that I will... get moderate pain. The customer service is stellar and the product ships to your home very quickly. I love the packaging and supporting a small business, all while feeling better inside and out. I do have to rave about the Rocky Mountain Chill Gel. It can kick a headache is 10 minutes! My husband and I both absolutely love it. I would highly recommend Proper Canna to anyoneread more

As an avid proponent of grass roots businesses that do it right. Not only have I tried most of the products Proper Canna produces but I have incorporated most of their products into my lifestyle, permanently. The muscle gel has come through for... me when my body aches after an intense yoga session or a long bike ride and if I’m cramping. The tincture supports my overall well being and keeps me focused and on point.read more

I use the cooling muscle gel and love it! As a triathlete there are days that every inch of my body aches and the cooling muscle gel helps tremendously with recovery. I’ve tried other products and this is by far the best!
