MCT liquid is an excellent energy and fat source for people who have impaired fat digestion. Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) are fats that are easier for the body to digest. Most fats consumed in our daily diet are long chain triglycerides, which are broken down in the intestine and then must be converted into a form that can be transported in the blood. But MCTs are broken down to caprylic acid at a much faster rate, making them more absorbable even in individuals who produce low levels of lipase. An important benefit of MCT liquid is that it has a high concentration of caprylic acid. Caprylic acid is a fatty acid that supports the immune system in the eradication of pathogenic organisms, which can be beneficial in keeping a healthy balance of intestinal flora.
