MCT Pure 1000mg MCT Pure 1000mg

Swanson MCT Pure is a high-quality dietary supplement with medium chain fatty acids (MCFA) from coconut oil – one of the richest source of these compounds. The formulation does not contain lauric acid, which belongs to MCFAs, because it is a source of slowly released energy and more benefits are obtained from using caprylic and capric acid. The product comprises min. 500 mg of caprylic acid and 340 mg of capric acid per softgel. MCT is a source of energy that is quickly absorbed by the body.

MCT, namely medium chain triglycerides, is the combination of one glycerol molecule and three molecules of medium chain fatty acids (MCFAs). MCFAs include saturated fatty acids which comprise 6-12 carbon atoms per molecule. Such chemical structure contributes to good absorption of MCTs – the process of hydrolysis in the digestive tract is very fast and does not require pancreatic lipase (unlike long chain triglycerides). This is important especially to individuals with pancreatic insufficiency – MCT and coconut oil is recommended in their diet.

MCT hydrolysis leads to the release of MCFAs which are absorbed directly from the intestinal lumen into the bloodstream (partly as chylomicrons).  MCFA metabolism is fast – mitochondrial β-oxidation does not require carnitine (necessary for transferring long chain fatty acids. This process results in the production of metabolic energy as ATP. Consequently, MCFAs are used by the body as an energy source rather than for energy storage.

MCTs are an efficient energy fuel for the body. They can be used also by the brain which needs a continuous supply of oxygen and nutrients. Its main energy source is glucose. However, in the case of its deficiency or after so-called ketoadaptation, the brain may derive energy from ketone bodies that are formed from medium chain fatty acids.

MCT oil helps maintain normal body mass. Studies on animals and humans showed that dietary intake of MCT in conjuction with capsaicin (found in, among others, chilli) contributed to an increase in thermogenesis which leads to higher energy expenditure of the body. Other studies have demonstrated a decrease in triglyceride and glucose levels on an empty stomach and an increase in leptin levels in a group taking MCTs. Leptin is a hormone that is responsible for satiety and stimulates lipolytic processes of adipose tissue. As a result, MCT oil helps reduce appetite and body fat.

Medium chain fatty acids have a wide range of uses in dietetics. They are used, among others, in a diet of individuals with hypertriglyceridemia caused by lipoprotein lipase deficiency, fat malabsorption caused by pancreatic diseases, cholestasis, celiac disease, malabsorption, disorders of carbohydrate metabolism and many others. MCFAs are also taken readily by athletes and physically active persons because they promote post-workout recovery, protecting proteins from degeneration, spare muscle glycogen stores and are an easy and quick source of energy.

Caprylic acid (octanoic acid) is the eight-carbon compound which belongs to saturated fatty acids and brings many benefits for the body. It shows antibacterial (bacteriostatic) properties by normalising the intestinal microbiota and helping the body fight against some bacterial infections of the digestive tract. In addition, it stimulates the regeneration of intestinal epithelium. Caprylic acid has been also proven to be effective against yeast, including Candida albicans.

Capric acid (decanoic acid) is a carboxylic acid with ten carbon atoms in a molecule. A study published in 2011 have shown that ten-carbon carboxylic acids act as agonists (activators) of PPAR-γ. This receptor belongs to PPARs which have a major role in the development of diabetes. The agonism of PPAR-γ is a mechanism of action of some diabetes medications and leads to the activation of genes involved in the metabolism of glucose and fatty acids and contributes to a reduction in insulin resistance.

To sum up, Swanson MCT Pure is a valuable dietary supplement recommended especially to athletes and physically active individuals before a workout – as an energy source and for a bulking cycle, cutting phase and slimming and ketogenic diet.

Calories

Information

Calories are the conventional name of the unit expressing the energy value of food, the demand and energy expenditure in human body, which in fact is 1 kilocalorie (1 kcal). 1 kilocalorie is the amount of thermal energy required to heat 1 g of water and 1 degree Celsius. The SI unit of thermal energy is 1 joule (1J), equal to approximately 4,185 kcal.
The energy value is determined by the chemical composition of the food product, by means of the so-called. physiological equivalents. Most often Atwater equivalent is used: ratio for protein 4 kcal / g, for carbohydrates 4kcal / g, and for fat - 9kcal / g.
The energy value carried out with the so-called. "Caloric bomb" is equivalent to the physical energy, amounting to 4.1 kcal per 1 g carbohydrate to 5.65 kcal per 1 g protein, 9.45 kcal per 1 g of fat.
Nutritional value, determines the suitability of a food product for realizing life functions of human, the higher it is - the higher bioavailability and lower quantity for consumption for obtaining the effects.

 

Fat

Information

Fat is an essential nutrient plant and animal organisms. Because of the nutritional value and composition of fats are divided into: saturated (mono-saturated and multi-saturated fatty acids) and unsaturated fatty acids (including essential fatty acids - EFA). The group of lipids include lipids (triacylglycerols, waxes), complex fats (glycolipids, phospholipids), sterols and isoprenoids. Saturated fatty acids is a group of fatty acids having different carbon chain lengths, in which except for the carboxyl group, each of the carbon atoms is bound by a single bond. May adversely affect the lipid profile, so they can be used in limited quantities. Fats are a concentrated source of energy, with different flavours, facilitating the consumption and swallowing of food. They have building functions (part of cell membranes and co-create the white matter of the brain). EFAs are precursors of tissue hormones and biologically active compounds. The unsaturated fatty acids include fatty acids from the group Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9 (the last digit indicates, on which, counting of the end of the chain, there is a double bond in the appropriate carbon chain. The essential fatty acids include: acids, medium-Omega-3 [n-3 ] included in EFAs [essential fatty acids], and long chain (eicosapentaenoic acid [EPA] and docosahexaenoic acid [DHA]) Omega-6 and Omega-9. the number indicates that the last double bond in the carbon chain is on the third from the end carbon atom. The acids from the omega 3 group are essential components of cell membranes, they are precursors of eicosanoids and biological activators. They must be combined with ingestion in suitable proportions of Omega-6 acids.
Dosage: Depending on demand and applied diet. It is generally accepted that fats should constitute 20-30% of the energy (calorie) of meals daily.


 

Saturated fatty acids

Information

Saturated fatty acids are a group of fatty acid having different carbon chain lengths, in which except for the carboxyl group, each of the carbon atoms is linked by a single bond. Saturated fatty acids are commonly known as bad fat, which might adversely affect the cholesterol level, in particular by the action of acids: lauric, myristic, palmitic, and therefore their consumption should be reduced. Research carried out in this matter do not confirm entirely the prevailing beliefs.


 

Trans fats

Information

Trans fats (trans fat) are the result of hydrogenation the liquid fraction of vegetable fat, by introducing the hydrogen bond of unsaturated fatty acid, forming trans isomers, causing the change of nutrient properties of fatty acids, by remaining only the energy source. They are used in hard margarine and food products (baked confectionery products). It is recommended to completely eliminate (or at least limit) the consumption of trans fats, because of their adverse effect on the human body (e.g. raise the level of total cholesterol, disturbed the balance between the factions of LDL and HDL, weaken the immunity of the organism and have a negative impact on the insulin metabolism, making it difficult to transport food into muscle cells, also there is noticed their influence on the development of cancer. Very rarely used in thermogenic sports supplements (i.e. energy bars).

Coconut oil

Information

Coconut oil is produced from the fruit of the coconut palm (Cocos nucifera), it has a long shelf life. A rich source of medium chain fatty acids MCT. MCT contain, in the carbon chain, from 6 to 12 carbon atoms and have the thermogenic anti-bacterial potential. Digested by pancreatic lipase and sent directly to the liver, they are a fast and renewable source of energy. Useful programs for weight reduction and muscle building and in the prevention of atherosclerotic diseases. Coconut oil is a source of polyphenols (such as gallic acid), vitamins and minerals. It is a component of preparations of multidirectional action, available at www.muscle-zone.pl.
Dosage: depending on the individual needs of several to tens of g / 24h

Caproic acid - C6

Information

Caproic acid C6 - short-chain fatty acid, is obtained from food (including milk and coconut oil). ). Intravenously absorbed reaches the liver. Influences the level of cholesterol in the blood. Antiseptic limiting the growth of fungi and bacteria. It has high energy potential. The advantage of use is digestibility, absorption by mitochondria cell without l-carnitine. In supplementation used in the form of drinks and nutritional supplements (such as MCT) and functional supplements.


 

Capric acid - C10

Information

Capric acid (Decanoic acid) - short-chain fatty acid, is obtained from food (including milk and coconut oil). ). Intravenously absorbed reaches the liver. Influences the level of cholesterol in the blood. Antiseptic limiting the growth of fungi and bacteria. It has high energy potential. The advantage of use is digestibility, absorption by mitochondria cell without l-carnitine. In supplementation used in the form of drinks and nutritional supplements (such as MCT) and functional supplements.
