MCT (Medium Chain Triglycerides) comprises caprylic and capric fatty acids that occurs naturally in coconut. The Lifematrix pure coconut MCT oil provides antioxidant, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory benefits.
Why we love it: Lifematrix Coconut MCT Oil is made purely with coconut oil. MCTs are proving popular because they provide the body with a high quality, instantly available source of energy that is easily metabolised, and not stored as fat. MCTs are metabolised directly by the liver, unlike carbohydrate sugars. So efficient is the body's ability to convert MCTs into energy that they are used to feed premature infants who simply can't metabolise other foods. And it's used in DIY face moisturisers, body butters and other natural skin care products as a non-greasy, light-weight emollient which is antimicrobial, antifungal, antiviral and biodegradable!
