Medium-chain Triglyceride Oils
Medium-chain triglyceride oils, also referred to as fractionated coconut oil, consist almost entirely of just two fatty acids; 75% caprylic acid and 25% picric acid. Coconut oil contains 48% lauric acid, 8% caprylic acid and 7% capric acid. The soap and cosmetic industry uses lauric acid in the manufacture of cleansing agents, leaving behind caprylic and capric acids as byproducts that can be cheaply used for other purposes. The
oils are used in sports nutrition, hospital settings for malabsorption syndrome, cystic fibrosis, epilepsy, seriously burned or critically ill patients, and treating and
nourishing premature infants.
Most fats in our foods are stored as fat tissue on our bodies if not used immediately as an energy source. On the other hand, the medium-chain fatty acids in coconut oil are broken down and used predominately for energy production and therefore seldom end up as body fat or as deposits in arteries or anywhere else. They produce energy not fat. Medium-chain fatty acids do not have a negative effect on blood cholesterol and help protect against heart disease.
Research has shown that medium-chained fatty acids from coconut oil can kill bacteria and viruses that cause influenza, herpes, bladder infections, gum disease, and other conditions.
Coconut oil is so resistant to free-radical attack that it acts as an antioxidant and thereby helping to prevent the oxidation of other oils. Coconut oil protects the heart and arteries from injury caused by free radicals, viruses and bacteria.
