How MCT Works in our Bodies
The way MCTs metabolizes in our body is unique: MCTs have a small molecular structure and are very soluble, making it easier for your body to absorb, unlike other edible oils.
- MCTs are transported directly from the small intestine to the liver, where they are naturally converted into ketones, ready to be used for energy instead of being stored in the body as fat.
- Ketones are an alternative fuel for the brain. Research shows that MCTs improves learning, memory and brain processing in people with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease.**
