What is the MCT oil?
MCT oil (medium chain triglycerides, MCT), which is medium chain fatty acid in Chinese, is a saturated fatty acid.Is a highly refined edible oil made by the process (fractionation) of separating oils and fats, whereas it contains ingredients with only medium chain fatty acids.MCT oils, which are sold commercially, are mostly modulated by octanoic (C8) and decanoic (C10) acids refined from coconut or palm kernel oils.The rate of digestive breakdown is about 10 times as fast as that of the stylized long-chain fatty acids, which is one reason why MCTs are burned by the body for energy or “” fuel “” rather than stored as fat.
What are the ingredients of coconut oil?
Coconut oil manufacturers have advertised coconut oil (coconut oil) as the best source of medium chain fatty acids (MCTS) because coconut oil is rich in 62% MCTs, but is this sufficient to indicate the efficacy of coconut oil on the body?Coconut oil is a good “” fuel oil “” than other vegetable oils because of the large amount of medium chain fatty acids contained in it that can rapidly supply energy to the human body.But coconut oil contains several different medium chain fatty acids, and not every medium chain fatty acid produces energy quickly.
There are four medium chain fatty acids in coconut oil: hexanoic acid (C6), octanoic acid (C8), decanoic acid (C10), and lauric acid (C12), and this classification is distinguished by chemists based on the length of the carbon chain.The less carbon atoms a fatty acid contains, represents the more easily digestible and does not require the breakdown of pancreatic lipase and bile, can be directly accessed from the enterocyte into the portal vein for immediate energy use or converted into ketone bodies.
Many studies have shown that it is insufficient to obtain effective medium chain fatty acids from coconut oil alone, because not every medium chain fatty acid contained in coconut oil is beneficial to the human body.Coconut oil will provide more lauric acid (C12), but the utility of lauric acid in the body does not resemble that of MCT oil because of its very long carbon chain and therefore metabolic route in the body is not MCT like but LCT (long-chain fatty acid), which needs to undergo hydrolysis by bile salts, chylomicrons, and pancreatic lipolysis before being transported to the liver via the lymphatic system,So taking that excess tends to form fat in the body.
