    Lifematrix Coconut MCT Oil

    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!

    Sizes: 250ml, 500ml.


      • MCTs are rapidly absorbed by the body: metabolised in the liver, MCT's do not go through the normal digestive process and are not stored in the fat cells
      • Provides twice the energy of carbs and has shown to improve metabolism and thyroid function as well as increase the number of calories burnt by thermogenic effect
      • Can aid in ridding the gut of bacteria, fungi, viruses and parasites
      • MCTs enhance Ketone production that aids in physical and brain performance. They are extremely beneficial for the body and assist with a range of ailments including neurodegenerative disorders
      • Can be used to help treat diseases such as cystic fibrosis, obesity, and fat malabsorption

          Suggested use: 1-3 teaspoons of oil with food
