Caprylic acid (C8) is one of the MCT fatty acids. MCT stands for Medium Chain Triglyceride and is a type of fatty acid. Medium-chain means that the fatty acids are medium-chain. Mattisson C8 MCT oil is made from 100% coconut oil and contains 99% caprylic acid. You can use MCT oil to replace other oils and fats. MCT oil has a neutral taste and is suitable for cold and hot use.
What are the benefits of MCT oil?
While long-chain fatty acids must be digested first and then absorbed by the gut, medium-chain fatty acids (MCTs) pass directly through the lymphatic system to organs such as the liver. The fats are therefore quickly absorbed as nutrients.
MCTs are converted by the body into molecules called ketones. In the keto diet, these ketones (and therefore the fats from which they come) play an important role.
These quickly absorbable MCT fats are also beneficial for athletes as nutrients during the workout.
