Rapidly absorbed MCTs
that boost energy for
mind and body

What is MCT?

Never heard of MCT? While they might not be a household name, MCTs became popular in the 90’s amongst bodybuilders and fitness fanatics as a clean source of energy to support endurance workouts such and cycling and weightlifting. Today, MCTs are used more widely to boost both physical and mental performance, offering an alternate energy source to glucose.

Let us break down what Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) are and how they work

Medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) have slightly shorter fatty-acid chains than the common fats we eat in our day-to-day diets and this makes them more easily absorbed and utilised by the body. These medium chain fats can be used to create ketones that can fuel the brain and central nervous system, offering an alternative energy source to glucose. Unlike common fats, they are utilised by the body quickly and are much less likely to be stored.

100% Natural

Our MCT Oils are 100% derived from organic coconuts. Regular coconut oil will have a mix of medium-chain and long-chain triglycerides. We distill the 4 different types of MCTs from our coconuts and use them to deliver specific benefits across our range of MCT Oils.

Fuel for brain and body

The shorter the triglyceride, the quicker it will convert to energy in the body. Each of our MCT formula’s have been expertly mixed to provide a different level and length of energy production to suit different activities.
