MCT stands for Medium Chain Triglycerides. Biotona bio Pure MCT oil is of biological origin and consists of caprylic acid (60%) and capric acid (40%), both of which are extracted from coconuts. These fatty acids provide a quick boost of energy and are only minimally stored as fat. Biotona's colourless and odour-free edible oil is ideal for sportsmen and women, but also for anyone who wants to lose weight and live a healthy life.
Feeling sharp and full of beans
Amongst other things, MCTs ensure that you feel full more quickly and for longer periods, so that you have less of an urge for unhealthy between-meals snacks. This is made possible by the high degradability of MCTs, which means that they are more quickly converted by the body into ketones than other fatty acids, allowing them to find their way to the liver much faster. These ketones act as sugar substitutes and help to burn off fat. This keeps you feeling sharp and full of beans. What's more, the energy released by MCTs is sugar-free and results in no additional fat storage!
As a result, they are ideal as part of a carbohydrate-free diet. Ketones are equally ideal as fuel for your brain, because the energy they contain is available almost instantly, which has a positive impact on your mental functioning.
MCT oil reduces the blood sugar level
Another positive effect of MCTs is their ability to keep the blood sugar level more stable, because they do not cause insulin peaks. By avoiding the creation of 'sugar dips' in this way, you feel less hungry and are less inclined to eat snacks between meals. This is perfect for the 'grazers' amongst us who want to improve their lifestyle.
In fact, the body's entire metabolism can benefit from the use of Biotona bio Pure MCT oil, by virtue of its positive influence on the intestinal flora.

Biotona would not be Biotona if its Pure MCT oil was not of the very highest quality. The production involves no chemical processes whatsoever. Its biological and vegan certification not only means that the coconuts from Sri Lanka are organically cultivated and that the end product contains no animal fats, but also that the basis is cold-pressed virgin coconut oil, which is not always the case with many other mass-produced MCT oils. Biotona further guarantees that no apes or monkeys are exploited as pickers during the harvesting of the coconuts, which is unfortunately common practice in the manufacture of cheaper mass-produced coconut products.
