The Benefits of MCT Oil: Strengthen Your Immune System!

Always ThereThere’s no way around it – germs surround us all the time. Thankfully, MCT Lean MCT Oil’s singular medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs) act as natural antibiotics – boosting the immune system and fighting off harmful bacteria, viruses, fungi, and protozoa. While completely harmless to our bodies, MCFAs are lethal to some of the most notorious disease-inducing microorganisms in existence.

They Don’t Stand A Chance. MCFAs may help protect against:

Viruses Bacteria Fungi, Yeast, Parasites
  • Influenza
  • Measles
  • Herpes
  • Mononucleosis
  • Hepatitis C
  • HIV
  • Stomach ulcers
  • Throat infections
  • Pneumonia
  • Sinusitis
  • Earache
  • Rheumatic fever
  • Dental cavities
  • Food poisoning
  • Ringworm
  • Candida
  • Thrush
  • Giardiasis

Silent Assassins. Due to its chemical structure, MCFAs are drawn to and easily absorbed into most bacteria and viruses. MCFAs enter the lipid membrane and weaken it to the point that it eventually breaks open, expelling the microorganism’s insides and causing imminent death. White blood cells then quickly dispose of the terminated invader’s remains.

Super Fatty Acids. With 8 g of caprylic acid and 6 g of capric acid per serving, MCT Lean MCT Oil harbors antimicrobial capabilities, while also being free from any undesirable or unsafe side effects.

  • Capric Acid: one of the two most active antimicrobial fatty acids
  • Caprylic Acid: one of the most potent natural yeast-fighting substances on earth

Research continues to prove MCFAs as one of the best internal antimicrobial substances available without a doctor’s prescription.
