WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT
MCT oil has been dubbed a super fuel since the body absorbs MCTs more rapidly than long-chain triglycerides (LCTs), which contain more carbons in their fatty acid chains.
Due to their shorter chain length, MCTs travel straight to the liver and do not require bile to break down like longer-chain fats do. In the liver, the fats are broken down to be either used as fuel or stored as body fat.
Since MCTs easily enter your cells without being broken down, they can be used as an immediate source of energy.
Regular intake of spirulina increases the time to exhaustion, isometric strength and endurance of the quadriceps, and cardiorespiratory efficiency. Studies have determined that athletes consuming 5g of spirulina a day gained in the order of 5 to 8% of VO2 max (maximum rate of oxygen consumption) compared with the 2-3% gained thanks to high training at altitude.
The Agisko range of products take care not only of active athletes who benefit greatly from the long lasting and natural effects of the contents, but also healthy living nutrition of athletes and non-athletes alike through the use of Spirulina supplements.
Active athletes such as cycling, running, triathlon, cross-country skiing, and hiking benfit greatly through easily absorbed natural contents which are easy on the stomach with far less use of gels and bars during training or racing.
