First, tell me what MCT oil really is?
MCT stands for medium-chain triglycerides—a type of saturated fatty acids made up of caproic, caprylic, capric, and lauric acid. MCTs can be found naturally in coconut oil, palm oil, and butter, but they can also be manmade in liquid supplement form, so you can add them to coffee or smoothies.
