Zenwise Labs 100% Pure MCT Oil contains the following ingredients: 100% MCT Oil
MCT stands for medium chain triglycerides which are a group of four fatty acids that contain between 6 and 12 carbon chains. These are: C6 or Caproic Acid, C8 or Caprylic Acid, C10 or Capric Acid, and C12 or Lauric Acid.
These medium chain fatty acids have numerous health benefits. Zenwise Labs 100% Pure MCT Oil is processed from coconut oil, although not specifically mentioned on the label. The process of obtaining MCT oil from coconut oil is called “fractionation” – a machine separates the medium chain fatty acids from the rest of the oil.
Fatty acids C6, C8 and C10, are found in coconut oil, but C12 or Lauric acid is the most abundant (roughly 50%), making coconut oil the richest source of this acid. Lauric acid has numerous health boosting benefits, from improving cholesterol levels, improving brain function in patients with neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s, reducing appetite and many others. However, there are some who claim that c12 should not be included in the MCTs category, as it is metabolized like a long chain triglyceride being processed through the liver as well.
Also, it appears that in the process of transforming coconut oil into MCT Oil, this precise Lauric acid is completely removed from the formula so that the range of benefits becomes narrower and not greater, as supporters of MCT Oil seem to suggest. Still, you should know that the formula is covered by a 100% lifetime no questions asked money back guarantee, which indicates the company greatly trusts the product’s effectiveness.
