Olimp MCT Oil is a top-quality preparation containing medium-chain fatty acids in an easy-to-drink liquid form. The supplement is odorless and tasteless, thanks to which it will please the tastes of people with delicate taste buds.

Medium-chain fatty acids are compounds that are used in the body in energy processes. Due to their chemical structure, they do not accumulate in the form of the excess fat. Due to their easy metabolic availability, they can be a wonderful addition to diets for athletes and people using a ketogenic diet.

Source of quickly absorbable energy
It is often said that fats, due to their chemical properties, delay emptying the stomach and prolong the absorption time of other nutrients in the gastrointestinal tract. However, this is not true for the whole group of these compounds, as there are exceptions.

In contrary to MCT oil, standard fatty foods are a source of long-chain fatty acids, whose digestive process is much more complicated and requires the involvement of more digestive enzymes. Medium-chain fatty acids skip this stage, directly targeting the portal vein and liver. From there they are directed to different parts of the body - including intensely working muscles. Considering this fact, it is a good idea to consume them at the peri-training time, because they are a great source of energy needed to work or regenerate damaged myocytes. In addition, they protect glycogen which is stored in muscles, saving it for energy use.

It is worth mentioning that medium-chain fatty acids are intracellularly transported inside the mitochondria without the participation of carnitine. This makes it much easier to get ketones from them, which are a much better source of energy than glucose. Ketone can affect the improvement of the central nervous system's cognitive functions - this property allows their use in neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease or senile dementia.

Support for a reduction diet
Many people associate the concept of ‘diet’ with the introduction of appropriate types of food to the daily menu. As a proof of this, it is worth presenting the impact of MCT on the progress in losing the excess kilograms. It has been proved that by increasing the efficiency of metabolic processes in the mitochondria, MCT can intensify the thermogenesis process. Increased body temperature facilitates getting rid of the excess fat.

An important aspect when reducing body weight is feeling the right level of satiety, without which there are often episodes of craving sweets. Unfortunately, MCT cause the inhibition of lipolysis, and this results in the lack of visible results. It has been observed that medium-chain fatty acids, acting on the leptin receptors, inhibit the desire to reach for sweetness between designated meals. In addition, they stimulate the secretion of GLP-1 and CCK - proteins whose synergistic effect is the optimization of blood glucose levels. Preventing blood glucose fluctuations is a key element in controlling hunger.

It is also thought that MCT may reduce the conversion of carbohydrates to fats, directly inhibiting the lipogenesis process.

Health-promoting properties
Regular supply of MCT oil may have a positive effect on the body's immune function. This is due to its antimicrobial properties. Due to their lipophilicity, medium-chain fatty acids have the ability to build into bacterial cell membranes. Thus, they increase their permeability and lead to the breakdown of pathogens. In addition, by changing the reaction of the bacterial habitat to acidic, they inhibit the processes of replication and division. What is more, by lowering the concentration of IL-6, they contribute to the reduction of inflammation of the body.

MCT also positively affects liver function, especially the synthesis of lipid derivatives. It has been proved that their regular consumption significantly improves the lipidogram parameters. People taking MCT oil noted a significant decrease in LDL (‘bad’) cholesterol levels, while an increase in HDL (‘good’), or important prognostic factors for the prevention of cardiovascular disease.

In summary, Olimp MCT Oil is a great addition to the ketogenic diet or supplement intended for athletes, which thanks to its properties can provide an excellent source of energy, support the processes of losing the excess fat or facilitates functioning of the immune and cardiovascular system
