What is MCT Oil? (Medium Chain Triglycerides)

MCT Oil is an oil that is comprised of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs). These medium-chain fatty acids have a aliphatic tail ranging from 6 to 12 carbon atoms. Any chains of fatty acids with 6 or less carbon atoms are referred to as short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs). Any chains of fatty acids longer than 12 carbon …

MCT Oil Benefits: List Of Scientific Possibilities

MCTs (Medium Chain Triglycerides) are defined as fatty acids comprised of a 6-12 carbon atom aliphatic tail with a glycerol backbone. The fatty acids derived from MCTs are commonly referenced as “MCFAs” or medium-chain fatty acids. MCT oils are most commonly extracted from coconut oil and palm kernel oil and can take a number of different forms. …
