We've curated every product in our I DO | Nutrition shop based on their nutrigenomic properties and leading manufacturing standards. Nutrigenomics is the study of food and nutrients as one of the most important environmental modifiers of gene expression. A personalised protocol based on your unique DNA, biochemistry and symptoms can help you create optimal wellness and prevent many chronic lifestyle-related diseases. This is called 'personalised scientific wellness'.

MCT oil was initially used to help treat diseases such as cystic fibrosis, obesity, and fat malabsorption. More recently, athletes and bodybuilders have embraced its fat-burning and energy-sustaining powers. When MCTs are absorbed into the blood stream, they bypass the normal digestion process that fats go through and are instead metabolised immediately by the liver for energy, so they won’t be stored in the fat cells. When a meal includes medium chain triglycerides, there is a significant increase in the number of calories burned (thermogenic effect). When more calories are used, fewer are stored as fat, which helps to reduce body fat levels.

"Medium chain triglycerides  (MCTs) are partially man-made fats. The name refers to the way the carbon atoms are arranged in their chemical structure. MCTs are generally made by processing coconut and palm kernel oils in the laboratory. We use MCTs as medicine and as nutritional support during training, as well as for decreasing body fat and increasing lean muscle mass. Intravenous MCTs are also given to prevent muscle breakdown in critically ill patients. MCT stands for medium chain triglycerides, which comprise primarily caprylic and capric fatty acids. The oil is clear, odourless and pleasant tasting. MCT oil occurs naturally in coconut and palm kernel oils. (It's basically coconut oil without the lauric acid). Supplementation with MCT oil was initially used to help treat diseases such as cystic fibrosis, obesity, and fat malabsorption. More recently, athletes, bodybuilders, and diet gurus have jumped on the MCT bandwagon, embracing its fat-burning and energy sustaining powers. When MCTs are absorbed into the blood stream, they bypass the normal digestion process of other fats and are instead metabolised immediately by the liver for energy, so they won't be stored in the fat cells. When a meal includes medium chain triglycerides, there is a significant increase in the number of calories burned (thermogenic effect). When more calories are used, fewer are stored as fat, which helps to reduce body fat levels".
