NOW MCT Oil is a versatile, natural oil that can be used for cooking, in salad dressings or in place of butter. Medium chain triglycerides are easily digested fatty acids found in coconut oil and palm oil.

What is NOW MCT Oil?

Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT's) are fats that are naturally found in coconut and palm kernel oil. MCT's are more easily and rapidly digested than other types of fats, as they require lower amounts of enzymes and bile acids for intestinal absorption.


MCT's are metabolized very quickly in the liver and won’t store throughout the body in the same way that others do. University-led clinical studies have determined that this unique process allows MCT to be utilized as powerful source of instant energy. Experts agree – substituting MCT Oil in place of conventional fat is a smart way to support a healthy body composition.

    Medium-chain triglycerides are a class of fatty acids. Their chemical composition is of a shorter length than the long-chain fatty acids present in most other fats and oils, which accounts for their name. They are also different from other fats in that they have a slightly lower calorie content1 and they are more rapidly absorbed and burned as energy, resembling carbohydrate more than fat.2

    For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.
