Twinlab MCT Fuel Orange 16 oz. (474 ml)
Twinlab MCT Fuel Orange is a high-octane human machine oil containing emulsified medium-chain Triglycerides (MCTs) and emulsified natural vitamin E. MCTs are lipids composed of medium-chain fatty acids. These unique lipids provide more than twice the energy power of carbohydrates and protein, and are less likely to turn into body fat than are long chain fatty acids. MCTs are an alternative energy source which are readily utilizable and can reduce muscle protein breakdown during wound healing or during recovery from burns. These are catabolic conditions where muscle breakdown exceeds muscle growth. Similarly, prolonged, exhaustive exercise and dieting (restricting caloric intake) is also a catabolic state in which muscle protein is being broken down in order to provide metabolic energy. This would suggest that as an alternative energy source, MCT's may benefit some athletes and those athletes restricting carbohydrates and calories in their diet.
Twinlab MCT Fuel is a revolutionary new emulsified MCT (medium-chain Triglyceride) oil that has been developed for quicker and easier assimilation and for those people who could never tolerate the taste of ordinary MCT oil. No chemical emulsifiers are used in MCT Fuel. Only small amounts of natural lecithin and apple pectin, nature's natural emulsifiers, are used in its production. MCT Fuel has a delicious, 100% natural orange flavor. it also does not have the undesirable oily taste like ordinary MCT oil.
Many athletes have become accustomed to taking carbohydrate drinks to fuel themselves through a workout. But many body-builders follow low-carbohydrate, high-protein diets to accelerate fat burning and to remove excess fluid from tissues in order to get ripped with striated and well-defined muscles, ruling out the use of high carbohydrate drinks. MCT Fuel can be used as a quick-acting, highly-concentrated energy source and alternative to high carbohydrate energy drinks for those body builders on low carbohydrate, high protein diets.

Twinlab was created in 1968 when founder David Blechman leveraged his 20 years of expertise in the pharmaceutical industry to develop and market a liquid protein supplement. Working out in his family's garage, he and his wife named their developing business Twinlab, after the couple's two sets of twins. Sales soared, and in the 1980s, Twinlab branched out to a broader range of vitamins, minerals, herbs and teas.
Since 1968, the Twinlab brand has been the trusted leader for innovative, high performance, health and wellness products. In addition to the extensive line of vitamins, minerals and sport nutrition formulas of its namesake brand, Twinlab Corporation also manufactures and sells other category leaders, including the Metabolife line of diet and energy products; Alvita Teas, established in 1922 as one of the country's first herbal tea lines, and Nature's Herbs, a complete line of herbals and phytonutrients.
