How CocoMCT® is good for the heart
- One of the main factors leading to heart problems is obesity; however, the low fat deposits of MCT allow for good cardiovascular health
- MCTs are quickly metabolized by the liver, making them less likely to contribute to fat accumulation than long chain fatty acids
- MCTs increase HDL (good cholesterol) and regulate LDL (bad cholesterol) to lessen plaque build-up, thus lowering blood pressure.
Healthy fats are all the rage these days, and MCT oil, a concentration of essential fatty acids found in coconut oil, has been widely embraced for its numerous health-giving benefits. Studies have shown that MCTs, or Medium Chain Triglycerides, help keep the heart healthy. Unlike most fats, they do not increase blood clotting, thus reducing heart disease and the risk of stroke.
It has been found that people who regularly consume coconut oil have a lower incidence of heart attack compared to those who do not consume coconut oil regularly—an effect attributed to the MCT in the coconut.
MCTs also help decrease cardiovascular disease by lowering the odds of becoming obese and may help prevent metabolic syndromes such as high blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol, that increase the risk for heart disease and even diabetes.
Laurin CocoMCT® contributes to your heart’s overall well-being in two ways. First, it manages your cholesterol levels by promoting a better ratio of HDL (good cholesterol) to LDL (bad cholesterol). Second, it is metabolized quickly by the liver, so it does not get stored as fat.
With Laurin CocoMCT® there is a better chance not only of keeping weight down but also keeping cholesterol levels down. While consuming fats may seem contrary to heart health, Laurin CocoMCT® provides the “good”, beneficial fat you need in your diet.
