Monounsaturated fats are healthy fats that can be very beneficial for your health when consumed in moderation. You use these fatty acids to replace saturated, or trans fats. These fatty acids found in oils, like olive oil, can help reduce bad cholesterol levels, and lower your risk of a heart attack and stroke. Monounsaturated fats are also very high in Vitamin E, a vitamin that seems to be missing in many North Americansí diets. Mixing monounsaturated fatty acids in combination with polyunsaturated acids in your diet can help balance the amounts of trans and saturated fats North Americans consume daily.
MCTs, or Medium Chain Triglycerides are fatty acids used for energy and to burn fat. They are easily digested and absorbed by the body. MCTs have been used to help fight digestive disorders and as a nutritional component for patients suffering from chronic disease. Combining MCTs with monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, or ALA, can provide you with increased health benefits.
