Ultimate Nutrition MCT Gold Ultimate Nutrition
MCT Gold

MCT Gold is 100% medium chain triglycerides oil.

MCTs are known as "carbo-lipid" for good reason since they prevent muscle loss and increase lean body mass. MCTs, therefore are a nutrient with great value for those in endurance training and the "body culture".

Medium chain triglycerides are actually not carbohydrates. MCTs are important fatty acids that provide energy exactly as do carbohydrates. Also known as caprylic and capric acids, MCTs function differently from conventional fats, in that less fat is absorbed in the body. During intense exercise, MCTs prevent the breakdown of muscle tissue since they produce the so-called 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.

This product is now bottled in an opaque high density polyethylene, made from non-leachable food grade materials. HDPE bottles are particularly suited for the product because molecules of HDPE have fewer branches and side chains which leads to higher density and smaller pores. This makes it an effective barrier to contain medium chain triglycerides within the bottle.

MCTs are unique in that, 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 are critical for muscle tissue repair. Furthermore, MCTs also improve the absorption of calcium and magnesium. These minerals are needed for carbohydrate and amino acid metabolism to improve muscle contraction response time. MCTs are digested immediately after ingestion as they are hydrolyzed by the enzyme lipase, which is present in the saliva. Additionally, energy released by the digestion and metabolism of MCTs is converted in the body into heat by a process called thermogenesis, which favorably affects the basal rate of metabolism. When the body converts energy into heat, the metabolism increases and, in turn, leads to fat loss.
