has anyone else tried MCT oil? on the back it reads medium chain triglycerides are fats that are naturally found in coconut and palm kernel oil. They are more easily and rapidly digested than other types of fats, as they require lower amounts of enzymes and bile acids for intestinal absorption. They are metabolized very quickly in the liver and are reported to encourage energy expenditure and not fat storage. Numerous studies suggest that substituting MCT oil for other fats in a healthy diet may therefore help to support healthy weight and body composition. Now my question is...should I use this type or brand (NOW) or should I use the ones in my SWAMI? They suggest a short chain fatty acid or medium chain saturated fats or high lignan oils. Are these the same things?


Listen, this is what I think: I think we can't go around measuring our goodness by what we don't do, by what we deny ourselves, what we resist, and who we exclude. I think we've got to measure goodness by what we embrace, what we create, and who we include. Pere Henri (Chocolat)

Coconut and palm kernel oil are both avoids for the vast majority of people.  

Check your food list to see if those things are good for you.

I was quite surprised to find coconut oil, not only as a beneficial, but also a diamond on my SWAMI. On all other lists it showed up as an avoid. Go figure.
