It is estimated that an aged brain uses 10-15% less glucose than a non-aged brain. This number increases to 25% in those with Alzheimer’s disease [1-4]. Studies have demonstrated that consumption of MCTs (such as CAPTEX®) can provide the ketones that an aging brain may use as alternate energy.
In the liver, MCTs are rapidly metabolized into ketones which are used by the brain, heart, and muscles as an alternate energy source. MCTs provide energy that may help you focus and feel more alert throughout the day.
The quick metabolism of CAPTEX® MCTs into ketones provides an energy source for your body. Studies have shown that MCT oil supplementation may increase satiety and decrease food consumption during the following meal .
