Default MCT Oil

I was doing a little research when I came across a site talking about mct oils so I decided to do a little research on it. This is what I found to be the jist of it.

Medium chain triglycerides are available in supplemental form, but dietary sources include: coconut oil, palm kernel oil, and butter. Medium chain triglyceride oil does not have any noticeable smell, is a liquid at room temperature, and has a slight yellowish color.

2. What do they do and what scientific studies give evidence to support this?

[ Top 5 Sellers ]
1. BSN Syntha-6
2. BSN NO-Xplode NT
3. BSN Lean Dessert Protein Shake
4. CytoSport Muscle Milk Light
5. Muscle Asylum Project Mass Impact
Medium chain triglycerides are more easily digested by the body than other fat molecules. Medium chain triglycerides are also a direct energy source for the body. 1 In this sense, they mimic the function of a carbohydrate.

Consumption of medium chain triglycerides has been shown to encourage caloric thermogenesis at a rate greater than if MCT consumption had not occurred. 2, 3, 4 The body can use MCT's for a number of purposes. These include being used for muscle energy, fat burning, and for the production of adenosine triphosphate. 5

Although conflicting data has arisen regarding the efficacy of medium chain triglycerides for weight loss, anecdotal evidence continues to mount that MCT's are effective for weight loss and athletic performance.
Has anyone ever tried Mct Oil or using Coconut oil? Have you noticed any real difference?
