Recently I was reading about MCT Oil which is Medium-chain triglycerides. Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT’s) are fats that are naturally found in coconut and palm kernel oil. I think of MCT Oil as really super concentrated coconut oil. These fats are absorbed by the body very rapidly, usually within 30 minutes. They go directly to the liver and are converted to ketones which fuel the body and brain.
MCT Oil is being promoted as a way to increase metabolism and lose weight. It also provides quick energy and extreme mental focus.
So whle thinking about that, I found Katie’s article for a simple, homemade whitening toothpaste. She wanted to make a simple, natural toothpaste that had the same consistency at all temperatures, whitened teeth, and tasted good. Just 3 ingredients and one of them is MCT Oil!
In the case of this toothpaste recipe, the concentrated MCT Oil helps to make a creamy toothpaste. Since the oil isn’t consumed and digested, I wouldn’t expect an impact on metabolism or clarity of thought.
Katie’s directions for the toothpaste are simple and clear. To see her recipe, click on the Simple Natural Whitening Toothpaste Recipe link below.
