“The use of MCT’s may become an important alternative in the treatment of obesity, if playing a role in a complete and balanced diet.” A. C. Rego Costa, Nutr. Hosp. vol.27 no.1 Madrid Jan.-Feb. 2012
Obesity is known to be a factor in the development of chronic degenerative diseases.
MCT’s were shown in some studies to help improve body composition and increase energy expenditure. This occurred without any obvious changes in food intake, according to a systematic review of the literature.
This review summarises a number of research articles over a 10 year period to identify the key points from the research on MCT’s and the effect on diet.
The conclusion of the study was that MCT’s have a positive effect on body composition and energy expenditure, although more research is required to understand the mechanism and effective dose.
KetoactiveEnergy provides MCT’s in an easy to take format, which you can carry with you for when you need an energy boost.
