Trec MCT Gold is a liquid formulation that only contains MCT oil. It is an excellent source of fast-digestible energy with high nutritional density. It may be used to complement a ketogenic diet or as an element supporting the reduction of body weight. It will also work great in many other situations.
MCT oil is a mixture of fatty acids with an average carbon chain length, classified as MCT (medium chain triglycerides). Naturally, these kinds of triglycerides are abundantly present in palm oil, or in smaller amounts in coconut oil or fat dairy, e.g. sour cream. MCT is referred to those fatty acids whose carbon chain has from 6 to 12 atoms, which causes a specific way of their absorption in the body, different than in the case of other fats. Due to their specificity, they are the subject of numerous studies in which further interesting properties of these substances are being continually discovered.
The mechanism of absorption of MCT fats
MCT fats are characterized not only by extremely fast absorption, but they also require much lower enzymatic activity of the pancreas. These unique triacylglycerols are absorbed in an almost unchanged form directly by the intestinal villi, from where they move with blood directly to the liver. The body has a preference to use these fatty acids as a source of energy, hence they are the first to be used in cells, specifically in the mitochondrion. The very process of penetration into the mitochondria, where fat burning takes place (called beta-oxidation), is also easier compared to the standard long-chain fatty acids LCT (long chain triglycerides). This is due to the limited permeability of the mitochondrial membrane through which the long-chain triacylglycerols are able to pass only when bound with carnitine.
The use of MCT in ketosis
MCT oil is certainly the most popular among people using a ketogenic diet (i.e. a diet with strict restrictions on the consumption of carbohydrates). Individuals who are just starting ketosis will find it valuable that consumption of MCT fatty acids may help to increase the level of ketone bodies in the blood, thus it may also accelerate the process of the so-called adaptation. Adaptation is the period in which the body switches from glucose to ketone bodies as its primary source of energy. Due to the possibility of unpleasant side effects of this process, it is worth accelerating it with fasting periods and the addition of MCT oil.
The second reason why MCT oil is so popular among people who are in a state of ketosis is the fact it provides the body with energy in such a fast way. One of the advantages of the energy properties of medium chain length fats is an energy boost similar to that which follows the carbohydrate intake. This may turn to be particularly important in situations requiring a large supply of energy, e.g. during training or at work. Such a solution does not burden the digestive system, as opposed to the classic ketogenic diet that abounds with stodgy meals.
A quick source of energy for athletes
MCT oil is also a very attractive supplement for young physically active people, whose energy demand is very high. Due to the high nutritional density, TRECT MCT Gold oil allows athletes to supplement the diet with a substantial amount of calories, while not straining the digestive system. It works great both as to replenish energy directly after a training unit and as an ingredient of a pre-workout meal.
Consumption of MCT oil, especially before exercise, may increase the body's efficiency, because it will have additional energy reserves resulting from the access of fatty acids, even before the consumption of glycogen stores in the form of glycogen. This can be a significant advantage, especially in endurance sports.
Support in weight reduction
Studies have shown that consumption of MCT oil may reduce appetite, which makes it easier to control the amount of food consumed. Therefore, MCT oil makes it easier to stick to a restrictive diet, which is the basic condition for the effective reduction of body fat. The effect of appetite reduction is caused by increased secretion of satiety hormones, such as YY peptide and leptin. This type of action is probably associated with a slightly slowed passage of intestinal contents, which is also a resultant effect of the supplement ingestion.
Another important factor in the reduction of body weight is the promotion of thermogenic processes, which may be the result of, among others, consumption of medium chain fatty acids. They contribute to higher energy expenditure associated with raising body temperature, which in turn leads to the acceleration of metabolism.
Clinical significance of MCT oil
It is worth noting that MCT oil is used in clinical dietetics as an element of menus in a number of diseases. Its high nutritional density is often used during diet therapy in case of cancer, liver disease, malnutrition or in some diseases of the intestines. It is also a component of most of the mixtures of enteral nutrition, i.e. tube feeding.
In conclusion, Trec MCT Gold is a unique preparation with a range of applications, which is not only a source of fast-absorbable energy, but it can also be used to raise the level of ketones in the body or as support during weight reduction.
