Medium Chain Triglycerides. A class of fatty acids that are rapidly absorbed and burned as energy.
Medium Chain Triglycerides. Provide twice the energy of carbohydrates; have no significant effect on insulin production. Improve the absorption of amino acids and reduce muscle tissue breakdown.
medium chain triglycerides. triglycerides with fatty acids consisting of 8-10 carbons in the carbon chain.
Medium Chain Triglycerides. MCT's are in theory fats, but they have very distinctive properties. The difference between them and other fats lies in their molecular structure. MCT's are shorter than other fats, which allow them to be burned rather quickly by the body for energy. MCT's enter the mitochondria, without assistance, and do not require the usual transport mechanism.
Medium Chain Triglycerides, caprylic acid source. Provides twice the energy power of proteins and carbohydrates and reduces muscle protein breakdown during recovery and healing.
Medium chain triglyceride. Triglycerides containing fatty acid chains of 6-10 carbon atoms which are readily absorbed by the body.
