Where did MCT oil come from?

Our MCT oil is fractionated by physical distillation. Simply put, by controlling the temperature, we can only extract the medium-chain fat we want. There is no need to add any compounds during the process, and there is no problem of drug residue .

It is metabolized in a very special way in the human body:

The general metabolism of fat in the human body is:

Eat it → go through a series of digestion after reaching the stomach → become chylus and enter the lymphatic circulation → reach the hepatic portal vein and be used by the human body. It takes about 2 hours for a long absorption and conversion time.

The metabolism of MCT oil in the human body is:

Eat it → absorb directly after reaching the stomach → reach the hepatic portal vein and be used by the human body. According to the literature, this process is about 1/10 of the long chain time, which is about 10 minutes.
