Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) are fats that are naturally found in coconut and palm kernel oils. They’re more easily and rapidly digested than other types of fats. MCTs are readily absorbed from the GI tract and are metabolized very quickly by the liver, where they are reported to encourage the use of fat for energy rather than for 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.*
MCT Oil has naturally occurring fatty acids caprylic acid (C8:0) and capric acid (C10:0)
NOW Sports Foods Arginine and Citruline are two amino acids that are integral to protein metabolism and utilization, as well as to the maintenance of muscle tissue. Both Now Foods Arginine and Citruline are key intermediates in the urea cycle, where they participate in the detoxification of ammonia via the production of urea. Now Foods Arginine that has not been converted to urea enters general circulation where it is distributed to various tissues and metabolized for other uses such as protein synthesis.
