MCT Powder by Switch Nutrition
MCT or Medium Chain Triglycerides are a medium length fatty acid found in coconut oil. But what's the benefits of consuming MCT? Becoming recently very popular due to the craze of the Bullet Proof Coffee, MCT's benefits range from improved brain function through to supporting energy metabolism!
MCT's quickly convert into ketones which then passes through the blood brain barrier and may boost focus, alertness and cognition. MCT's have also long be known as a tool to support fat metabolism. Used widely by those using a Keto Diet (high fat and protein, super low carbs) due to the boosting of satiation hormones such as PYY and Leptin. When PYY is released from the small intestines, it sends a receptor to your brain to tell you when you've consumed enough food whilst slowing down the digestive tract to assist with complete digestion and satiation while Ketones that arise from MCT help improve leptin sensitivity which may assist in controlling hunger cravings.
And the best part about Switch Nutrition's MCT? It's in a handy powder form making it easier to consume and less mess!
