MCT Fuel 16 fl. oz. from Twinlab.
Twinlab MCT Fuel is a high-octane "human machine oil" containing emulsified medium-chain triglycerides
(MCT's) and emulsified natural vitamin E.
MCT's are lipids composed of medium-chain fatty acids. These unique lipids provide more than twice the energy
powder of carbohydrates and protein, and are less likely to turn into body fat than are long chain fatty acids.
MCT's are an alternative energy source which is readily utilizable and can reduce muscle protein breakdown
during wound healing or during recovery from burns. These are catabolic conditions where muscles breakdown
exceeds muscle growth. Similarly, prolonged, exhaustive exercise and dieting (restricting caloric intake) is also
a catabolic state in which muscle protein is beining broken down in order to provide metabolic energy. This
would suggest that as an alternative energy source, MCT's may benefit some athletes and those athletes
restricting carbohydrates and calories in the diet.
TWINLAB MCT Fuel is a revolutionary new emulsified MCT (medium-chain triglyceride) oil that has been
developed for quicker and easier assimilation and for those people who could never tolerate the taste of
ordinary MCT oil. No chemical emulsifiers are used in MCT Fuel. Only small amounts of natural lecithin and
apple pectin, nature's natural emulsifiers, are used in its production. MCT Fuel has a delicious, 100% natural
orange flavor. It also does not have the undesirable oily taste like ordinary MCT oil.
"High-octane" energy boost. Many athletes have become accustomed to taking carbohydrate drinks to fuel
themselves through a workout. But many bodybuilders follow low-carbohydrate, high-protein diets to accelerate
fat burning and to remove excess fluid from tissues in order to get ripped with striated and well-defined
muscles, ruling out the use of high carbohydrate drinks. MCT Fuel can be used as a quick-acting, highly
concentrated energy source and alternative to high carbohydrate energy drinks for those bodybuilders on
low-carbohydrate, high-protein diets.
