MCT oil (Medium-chain triglyceride) contains medium-length chains of a type of fat called triglycerides. As their chains are shorter in length than other triglycerides, MCTs are more readily digested by the body and are capable of passing the Blood/Brain barrier.
MCT oil is typically extracted form organic coconut oil, which is used due to its high level of MCTs. Amazingly at least 50% of the fat contained in coconut oil comes from MCTs. Whilst MCT fats are also found in other places, such as palm oil and dairy products, these are usually at far lower levels and quality. Camden Town CBD only uses MCT derived from Cocunut oil.
