Niulife Coconut Endurance MCT Plus+ contains a fuller profile of MCTs through its selection of plant-derived ingredients, giving a more sustained energy release over 6 hours - twice as long as regular MCT oil. Optimised for ketones, Niulife Coconut Endurance MCT Plus+ rapidly metabolises into ketones. It provides the body with an alternative fuel derived from quality fats rather than sugar to power muscles and organs through endurance training.
Fortified with Omega 3 from Chia, Camelina and Flaxseed oils, it can also help to correct omega imbalances that may cause inflammation. Perfect for triathletes, marathoners and other endurance athletes.
What is MCT?
Medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) are types of fatty acids containing 6-12 carbons. They include caproic acid (C6), caprylic acid (C8), Capric acid (C10) and Lauric acid (C12). They are found in foods like coconut oil and they are metabolized differently than the long-chain triglycerides (LCT) found in most other foods. Because of the shorter chain length, MCTs are rapidly broken down and absorbed into the body. Unlike LCTs, MCTs go straight to the liver. There they can be used as an instant energy source or turned into ketones. Ketones can cross from the blood to the brain providing energy. Because the calories contained in MCTs are more efficiently turned into energy and used by the body, they are less likely to be stored as fat.
Use in coffee, tea, smoothies, as a salad dressing, a dipping oil or straight from a spoon.
For best effect take 1 or 2 tablespoons directly before exercise and build gradually up to 6 tablespoons per day. For maximum benefit consume within 2 months of opening.
As with any edible oil product, a rapid increase in ingestion may cause digestive upset, so we recommend that you build up gradually to the recommended 6 tablespoons per day. (too much too soon can lead to loose bowels)
Made in a facility free of nuts, gluten and dairy.
