Image MCT (medium chain triglycerides) is fast becoming a popular ingredient in fat loss and dietary products - and for good reason.  

These dietary fats can be found in palm oil and can, for the most part be absorbed directly into the bloodstream.  Once in the bloodstream, these MCT's enter the liver where they are then oxidized for energy. Thus MCT's increase your metabolism dramatically.

It is this characteristic of the MCT being oxidized for energy by the liver that encourages energy expenditure rather than conversion to fat as glycogen is when it is stored in the liver.

The recommended dosage for MCT's is 30 grams.  Just make sure, when you are choosing your supplements that you take note of the percentage of total fats from MCT's.  To effectively up your metabolic rate, you must use MCT's in place of other fats rather than in addition or the effects will be attenuated. THE END.
