How to increase energy levels with CocoMCT®
- MCTs or Medium Chain Triglycerides have a wealth of health benefits, including increased energy and improved performance.
- They are more easily digested than other fats and are burned by the body for energy or “fuel” instead of being stored as fat.
- With a boosted metabolism, MCTs provide enhanced energy levels, not to mention the direct stream of ketones from the rapid conversion of MCTs to energy.
Our cells and muscles need fuel in the form of glucose to function. When glucose is limited, ketones are the natural alternative. Our liver instantly converts MCTs (Medium Chain Triglycerides) to ketones that replenish glucogen in our muscles. This boost gives our muscles added energy for high intensity exertion and stamina for prolonged activity.
Medium chain fatty acids are more easily digested than other fats. Unlike Long Chain Triglycerides (LCT), which get stored in your body’s other cells, tissues, and organs, MCTs are quickly metabolized in the liver and converted into a readily available source of energy.
Glycogen is the stored form of glucose which the body warehouses for future use. MCTs raise energy levels by supplementing the glycogen in muscles for high intensity or prolonged activity because they are easily broken down in the body.
Since MCTs are not stored as fat, they become a natural alternative source of energy versus carbohydrates or sugar, training your body to burn stored fat.
Laurin CocoMCT® not only stimulates faster metabolism, it also burns existing body fat deposits. More fat burned means more energy released for the body. As you burn fat, you have more energy to be more productive at work or play—and you have more drive to pursue your activities, interests, and hobbies.
