Colleen black closeup serious good

You all know I'm a health nut and am always researching. :) I've recently discovered the benefits of MCT oil. I put it in my coffee with butter and it's totally fabulous. I cook with it and dribble it on salad. It's clear and tasteless, but oh my goodness, my skin is so great since using it! 

First off, what is MCT oil, you ask? It's medium chain triglycerides. It's found in coconut oil and palm kernel oil. Here are some of the benefits of it:

More easily digested than regular oils so helps with malabsorption issues.

Metabolized quickly in the liver and decreases fat storage (helps you lose weight in other words.)

Improves thyroid function.

Improves brain health.

Improves athletic performance (yeah, I'm going to need THAT one. LOL)

Stimulates thermogenesis. (increases metabolic rate.)

Helps regulate blood sugar.

Boosts energy

Now you can just use coconut oil. It's 60% MCT. But I have found that I really prefer the MCT oil. It's colorless, tasteless, and stays liquified. I just love the stuff! Have you ever tried it? If not, what new thing are you working on for your health?

Thanks for sharing this, Colleen. I love to use coconut oil but I've never used just MCT oil.

Sounds almost too good to be true. Is it available in grocery stores? And, if so, in what section?

No it's not in grocery stores. Just health food stores.

It comes in my shakes every day, plus I cook a lot with coconut oil. I'm always trying something new. Something I used to take, then stopped taking, then started taking again is glutathione enhancer. It helps with a lot of stuff. The old brand was MAX GXL, helps you heal, helps you not get sick in the first place, helps you recover after exercise. I took it while I was having shoulder surgery and I healed so quickly! As for coffee, I tried the ghee in my coffee, butter in my coffee. Couldn't do it. Still doing a little cream. If it slows down my weight loss I'll have to just start drinking tea, because I can't do black coffee.

I've been using more natural products this year myself. Queen Esther used 3 oils on her skin in beauty preparation before going before the king. I have faithfully been using Marakesh oil on my hair, vitamin E oil on my face and neck. Now I will definitely try this. Thanks for the info and post.

Thanks for posting those facts about MTC oil. I was wondering what today's post was about, and came over to have a closer peek. I thought at first it was an oil company.

Funny you should mention coconut oil. Everywhere I went on our summer holidays, my family had switched to coconut oil for cooking. Amusing really.

I think I need to follow the trend, although I do think it makes the pancakes taste a little weird.

I have been using MCT oil for about a month now (1tbs. in my morning oatmeal) and I have noticed that my skin is looking really nice. I wonder why it has this effect? Not complaining, it's awesome. So my brain and my skin are benefiting!
