As a result, they are more quickly absorbed by the body and metabolized as fuel. Because of this quick metabolism, the calories in MCTs are very efficiently converted into fuel for immediate use in the mitochondria, instead of being stored as fat.
MCTs have been shown to enhance thermogenesis (heat production) in the body, thereby promoting the burning of fat. MCTs contain fewer calories than LCTs, are metabolized quicker, and actually contribute to an enhanced metabolism to burn even more calories!
