MCT Supplementation Improves Walking Balance and Supports Brain Health in Older Adults

MCT Supplementation Improves Walking Balance and Supports Brain Health in Older Adults

Are you looking for a way to boost your memory and improve your balance as you age? The solution may be as simple as adding medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) to your diet. A recent study found that supplementing with MCTs, such as those found in Energy Pods, can improve walking balance by reducing glucose metabolism in the brain.

MCTs (Medium Chain Triglycerides) are a type of saturated fat found in coconut oil and palm oil. Unlike long chain fatty acids, MCTs are rapidly absorbed and metabolized, providing the body with quick energy. MCTs are often used as a dietary supplement, particularly for those following a ketogenic diet, as they can help the body get into ketosis, where it burns fat for fuel, more quickly. MCTs are also said to have potential health benefits, such as increasing feelings of fullness, promoting weight loss, and improving brain function.

Energy Pods are a convenient and delicious way to incorporate MCTs into your daily routine. Each pod contains up to 7 grams of MCT oil and 10 grams of protein, and is sweetened with the natural sweetener erythritol. The chocolate flavor is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth, and the added almonds provide a satisfying crunch.

In the study(1), participants who took 18 grams of MCTs showed better balance compared to those who took a placebo. This improvement was related to decreased glucose metabolism in the right sensorimotor cortex and increased connectivity in the cerebro-cerebellar network. The results suggest that a long-term MCT dietary treatment, like Energy Pods, may have a beneficial impact on your cognitive and physical well-being.
