MCT Fuel Information
MCT Fuel may be used as an energy source to all organs and muscles. MCT Oil is also used to increase performance and sustained energy. Twinlab MCT Fuel is a high-octane "human machine oil" containing emulsified medium-chain trigylcerides (MCT'S) and emulsified natural vitamin E. MCT's are Lipids composed of medium-chain fatty acids. These unique lipids provide more than twice the energy power of carbohydrates and protein, and are less likely to turn into body fat than are long chain fatty acids.
MCT's are an alternative energy source which are readily utilizable and can reduce muscle protein breakdown during wound healing or during recovery from burns. These are catabolic conditions where muscle breakdown exceeds muscle growth. Similarly, prolonged, exhaustive exercise and dieting (restricting caloric intake) is also a catabolic state in which muscle protein is being broken down in order to provide metabolic energy. This would suggest that as an alternative energy source, MCT's may benefit some athletes and those athletes restricting carbohydrates and calories in the diet. Twinlab MCT Fuel is a revolutionary new emulsified MCT (medium-chain triglyceride) oil that has been developed for quicker and easier assimilation and for those people who could never tolerate the taste of ordinary MCT oil. No chemical emulsifiers are used in MCT Fuel. Only small amounts of natural lecithin and apple pectin, nature's natural emulsifiers, are used in its production. MCT Fuel has a delicious, 100% natural orange flavor. It also does not have the undesirable oily taste like ordinary MCT oil.MCT Fuel Ingredients
Medium-Chain Triglycerides (caprylic acid source), Purified Water, 100% Natural Orange Flavor, Natural Vitamin E, Lecithin, Apple PectinMCT Fuel Suggested Usage
Because MCT Fuel is naturally emulsified, it can be conveniently taken undiluted by the tablespoonful or easily mixed with your favorite beverage. Take two tablespoonful 2-4 times daily. For best results, take two tablespoonfuls before exercise. Suggested Use: "High-octane" energy boost. Many athletes have become accustomed to taking carbohydrate drinks to fuel themselves through a workout. But many body-builders follow low-carbohydrate, high-protein diets to accelerate fat burning and to remove excess fluid from tissues in order to get ripped with striated and well-defined muscles, ruling out the use of high carbohydrate drinks. MCT Fuel can be used as a quick-acting, highly -concentrated energy source and alternative to high carbohydrate energy drinks for those bodybuilders on low-carbohydrate, high-protein diets.MCT Fuel Recommended Daily Allowance
