MCT Oil Benefits
MCTs do not undergo the same process of absorption as long-chain fats. Upon ingestion, the MCTs get quickly delivered to the liver, where they are oxidized into ketones.
Ketones are a byproduct of the body breaking down fat and is an easily accessible form of energy, especially when the overall carbohydrate intake is low.
Here are the top 5 benefits of using MCT oil.
1. MCT Oil Is a Great Cognitive Enhancer
Your brain is largely made of fatty acids and water, and burn approximately 20% of your total daily caloric intake. This means that this relatively small organ needs plenty of energy and food!
If you want a steady supply of mental focus, clarity, and energy, MCTs are the way to go.
They have even been proven to have an impact on memory recall, as many studies have proven MCTs to be great at slowing down memory loss in patients suffering from Alzheimer’s. 
The oil is easily absorbed by the body, making it one of the best ‘brain fuels’ you can find out there!
2. Weight Management And Improved Heart Health
When medium chain triglycerides get broken down in the body, they raise your basal metabolic rate, which means your body will burn more calories even if you’re just resting on the couch.
This doesn’t mean you’ll drop pounds just by supplementing with MCTs, but they have been proven to have a positive effect on fat loss. MCTs will help you feel fuller and give you sustainable energy throughout the day.
Because MCT supplementation helps fight obesity, they also seem to decrease cardiovascular disease and prevent the development of metabolic disorders.
3. MCT Oil Supports Nutrient Absorption And Boosts Your Immune System
MCT oil is great for balancing the bacteria in the gut and improving the absorption of fat-soluble nutrients and vitamins.
By helping the intestines combat harmful bacteria, viruses, and parasites, MCTs (namely coconut oil) have served as a great antibiotic and anti-oxidant for centuries!
4. MCT Oil Fights Bacterial Growth
Recent studies show that supplementing MCT have antimicrobial effects. 
In addition, supplementing MCT oil has been shown to slow down Candida growth, a common issue among people nowadays. 
There have been other studies done on this issue and one showed that using coconut oil can reduce the growth of other bacteria as well. 
Keep in mind that most studies have been done on animals, so we still have to wait for new human studies.
5. MCT Oil Suppresses Hunger
Last but not least, supplementing MCT oil suppress your hunger.
If you use MCT oil, you can go for longer periods without eating. For example, whenever I drink Bulletproof coffee in the morning which contains MCT oil, I can easily skip one meal (usually breakfast).
Why does this happen?
Because MCT oil raises ketones which suppress ghrelin while increasing cholecystokinin. 
And this combo makes you feel full for hours.
