Fatty acids are a class of compounds which composed of three elements: carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen.
Triglycerides are named after their chemical structure, specifically the length of their fatty acid chains. It can be categories into:
Short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs): Containing 2-5 carbon atoms, because of their small structure, they absorb very quickly, but they cannot provide energy to the human body. Most of these short-chain fatty acids enter in the stomach will become the nourishment for our intestinal flora.
Long-chain fatty acids (LCT): Containing 13-22 carbon atoms, long-chain fatty acids can supply energy for human body, but the energy supply rate is relatively slow. It must be converted into body energy through bile emulsification and pancreatic lipolytic enzyme decomposition. The whole process takes more than 4 hours.
Medium-chain fatty acids (MCT) containing 6-12 carbon atoms, which can also supply energy to the human body. However, compared with the complex metabolic pathways of long-chain fatty acids, the carbon chain is shorter and the molecule is smaller and after directly absorbed from the intestine, the liver will quickly digests and converts it into energy, and the body is relaxed and unburdened. This process only takes 30 minutes.
SUNPEACE MCT medium-chain fatty acid is a vegan product, it derived from the virgin cold-pressed extraction of coconut core pulp to separate MCT medium-chain fatty acid (C8 caprylic acid: 60%, C10 capric acid: 40%). PIC/S Pharmaceuticals guarantees purity, does not contain miscellaneous oil vacuum cryogenic vegetable soft capsules, does not oxidize, does not contain preservatives, thus It is on the highest level of safety. SUNPEACE MCT medium-chain fatty acid soft capsules are easy to carry and consume.
Ø Caproic acid C6 has the shortest carbon, but it is unpalatable and can easily cause stomach upset.
Ø Although lauric acid C12 is classified as a medium-chain fatty acid in the chemical formula, it is a long-chain fatty acid in terms of human physiological performance because of the same carbon chain, metabolic pathway and long-chain fatty acid.
Ø Caprylic acid C8 and capric acid C10 are the most efficient medium-chain fatty acids that can be converted into energy
Ø For weight loss, take 2-4 capsules 30 minutes before meals per day, eat vegetable,
meat, fish and eggs, reduce starch, drink more water as well.
Ø It is more effective to take 4-6 capsules once before going to bed (Lose weight while you sleep).
Ø For sugar lovers, use 2 capsules between meals or before going to bed to maintain energy.
