Overview

  • A powerful energy source
  • Derived from fats that are used by those following a low-carb ketogenic (eg Banting) diet
  • This product is made only from coconuts.

Description

MCT stands for medium chain triglycerides, which comprise primarily caprylic (C8) and capric (C10) fatty acids that occur naturally in coconut and palm kernel oils. The oil is clear, odourless and pleasant-tasting. MCTs have increased in popularity in tandem with the growth of low-carb, high fat diets (ketogenic/Banting) because they provide energy without the need for sugars/insulin. They are also used as a natural performance enhancer by athletes, bodybuilders as well as for weight loss. Anti-oxidant and anti-bacterial MCT oil can rid the gut of bacteria, fungi, viruses and parasites. It has been shown to reduce the risk of atherosclerosis, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, autoimmune diseases, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and epilepsy. It is also used in the treatment of obesity, Alzheimer's, seizures, fat malabsorption and cystic fibrosis. MCTs are great for sports people as they are anti-inflammatory in addition to providing instant and sustainable energy. Metabolised in the liver, MCTs do not go through the normal digestive process; they get utilised immediately by the body and are not stored in the fat cells. As an aid in weight loss, MCTs have been shown to improve metabolism and thyroid function as well as increase the number of calories burnt (thermogenic effect) from a meal. Diabetics can also benefit from including MCT oil in their diets as it improves blood sugar regulation.

Large corporations today employ between 200 to 400 times more people than what populated any of Europe’s most prominent medieval cities. It’s predicted that by 2020, the size of the global middle class will have almost tripled to 4.9 billion, from 1.8 billion in 2009.

At last count, the number of unique mobile connections operating across the internet outnumbered humans by1.2 billion. This dense interconnectivity removes the effect of the physical barriers (like oceans and mountains) that forced separation between nations. It also means that more machines than humans are communicating with one another to share information about and make decisions on behalf of humans in real time.

My relationship with yoga is a complicated one. I’ve become fast friends with some poses, while engaging in long-standing feuds with others. It’s taken me some time to accept that yoga is not about performance, but practice – both on and off the mat.
