The Medium Chain Triglycerides or MCTs (capric, caprylic and lauric oils) that make up Laurin contain the bulk of the health benefits imparted by coconut oil. Five liters of coconut oil are needed to make one liter of MCT, which means that one dose of MCT has the health benefits of five times as much coconut oil. The fatty acids that make up MCT have anti-pathogenic and fungal and anti-convulsant properties.  These also strengthen the immune system, stimulate metabolism and burn body fat, and provide a quick and easy energy boost to the body.
