MCT oil, insulin sensitivity and weight loss

Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) are metabolized differently than long chain fatty acids. They resist being stored as body fat and easily produce ketones.

Subjects receiving 18 grams of MCT oil a day (about 4 teaspoons… a whopping dose) ate less and had improved insulin sensitivy and weight loss over those receiving corn oil (a long chain, polyunsaturated fatty acid).
