Fat gets a bad wrap and, for the most part, deservedly so. But at SHARRETS , we believe not all fats are created equal. That’s because we’ve found extreme value in a particular fat: medium chain triglycerides, or MCTs. In fact, we believe MCTs are THE premium fuel for your body’s everyday functions—the best fuel for life.
You see, MCTs don’t behave like other fats. It’s chemically structured to produce energy, not body fat. In fact, MCTs are hailed as the all-natural answer to eliminating stubborn body fat. (What’s more: you’re likely to lose weight fast!)
The typical Western diet is largely composed of long chain triglycerides (LCTs), typically consumed in processed vegetable oils such as canola, soy, and safflower. In excess, LCTs acts as the building blocks of stubborn body fat. Unlike LCTs, shorter length MCTs are primarily used for energy production and rarely ever stored as fat.
THE ROLE OF KETONES
MCTs promotes ketone bodies—compounds created by the body when it burns fat stores for energy. When you eat a diet low in carbs and high in healthful fat, your body responds to the reduced levels of blood sugar by switching to an alternative power source and converts fatty acids in the liver to ketones. Ketones then become the main energy source. Instead of your body burning carbs, it burns fat!
At SHARRETS , we’re using MCTs as the foundation for creating the highest quality plant-based dietary supplements and functional foods to support those striving to live an active, nutritious lifestyle.
We know what you’re probably thinking: “Really? By promoting more fat in my diet?” The answer is YES! Increasing the amount of quality fat in your diet can actually improve your health—especially if the fat is made up of medium chain triglycerides (MCTs).
