Label Facts


Intense exercise on a regular basis can induce muscle fatigue, and it is widely recognized that carbohydrates are an essential factor in preventing muscle fatigue. Many carbohydrates, especially refined sugars, are not an ideal source of immediate energy needed to maintain an exercise regimen. Medium chain triglycerides (MCTs), however, are an energy source that can help athletes develop stamina and endurance.

Medium chain triglycerides are actually not carbohydrates. MCTs are important fatty acids that provide energy the same way carbohydrates do. Also known as caprylic and capric acids, MCTs function differently from conventional dietary fats, in that less fat is absorbed in the body. During intense exercise, MCTs prevent the breakdown of muscle tissue, since they produce ketones, which are used directly by the muscle to produce energy and reduce muscle loss. Conventional fats do not produce many ketones. In addition, MCTs are quickly absorbed and circulate in the bloodstream, and they do not produce fatigue, as is common with the consumption of simple sugars.

MCTs are unique because, in the presence of carbohydrates, they can be turned into energy inside the mitochondria, the powerhouses of energy production in the cell. Conventional fats can be burned only after the carbohydrate reservoir of the cell has been depleted. This has important implications in that the burning of MCTs in the presence of carbohydrates spares glycogen and, hence, production of ketones. Both prolong endurance for training and stamina.

Medium chain triglycerides also improve the absorption of amino acids, which is critical for muscle tissue repair. Furthermore, MCTs improve the absorption of calcium and magnesium. These minerals are needed for carbohydrate and amino acid metabolism to improve muscle contraction response time.
