What is MCT Oil?
Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) are a particular type of dietary fat that are most commonly found in coconut and palm oils. MCT's are important fatty acids that are between 6-12 carbon chains in length and are rarer in the diet than other fats.
The Melrose MCT range consists of varying blends of caproic (C6), caprylic (C8), capric (C10), and the slightly longer 12-chain MCT lauric acid (C12).
MCTs aren't digested and absorbed in the same way as normal dietary fats, instead they are easily digested and processed in the liver, providing immediate fuel rather than being stored as fat in the body. They have been researched extensively for their many benefits that include:
Encouraging the creation of brain and body friendly ketone fuels for natural energy
Supports mental and physical performance
Helps you get into a state of Ketosis
Increased Fat Burning
Helps maintain and support digestive health

Which MCT Oil is right for me
If you are looking for an overall boost to your health or to support your ketogenic or low carb high fat eating then the Original Kick Start MCT is for you.
If you're training hard, whether it's cardio or strength training and you want sustained energy and improved performance we suggest Pro Plus Melrose MCT Oil, which contains C12(lauric acid) to support ketosis. The longer carbon chain C12, means its metabolised slower in the body than the other MCT’s, adding a more sustained release of energy to keep you physically and mentally active for longer.
If you're running sprints or doing high intensity workouts, then Pro Rapid Melrose MCT Oil is perfect for you due to the C6 (caproic acid) and the high amounts of C8 (caprylic acid) it contains. The smaller carbon chains mean C6 and C8 convert into ketones almost immediately to burn fat for energy. The result is instant improved endurance for Going Faster.
