MCT oil is a medium-chain triglyceride oil and a saturated fat. We have all been lead to believe that all saturated fats are bad, but research has shown that this does not apply to MCT oil. It is the easiest fat for the body to convert into ketones, and studies suggest that it aids weight loss efforts by supporting healthy metabolic function. MCTs have a tendency to be burned as energy rather than stored as fat.
