MCT Oil® (Medium Chain Triglycerides) is a fat source that may be more readily digested and absorbed by those who cannot tolerate fat from conventional food. MCT's require fewer digestive enzymes and biles acids for digestion than long chain fats. MCT's are more readily hydrolyzed and absorbed than conventional food fat. MCT's are absorbed directly into the portal circulation and do not require bile salts for emulsification.
Appropriate for lactose-free, gluten-free, and kosher.
Provides nutritional support for:
-Decreased pancreatic lipase , decreased bile salts
-Defective mucosal fat absorption (decreased mucosal permeability, decreased absorptive surface)
-Defective lymphatic transport of fat (i.e. intestinal lymphatic obstruction)
