  • Effects of medium chain triglycerides on lipid metabolism in high-fat diet induced obese rats - Food Funct 2022 Aug 9 - "A high fat diet was fed to Sprague-Dawley rats to induce obesity, and then caprylic triglyceride (CYT), capric triglyceride (CT) and lauric triglyceride (LT) were synthesized and used to treat the obese rats for 12 weeks. The obesity phenotype and molecular changes related to lipid metabolism were determined. The results showed that all the three MCTs reduced the body weight (BW) and fat coefficient in obese rats, and the levels of plasma and liver lipids were also improved. Among the MCT groups, the LT group showed the lowest BW with the lowest food intake" - See Medium-chain triglycerides at Amazon.com.
  • Medium-chain triglycerides improve lipid metabolism in obese rats through increasing the browning of adipose tissue via sympathetic regulation - Food Funct 2022 Jul 6 - "This study aimed to determine the effect and mechanism of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) on promoting the browning of adipose tissue. A high-fat diet was fed to the Sprague-Dawley rats to induce obesity, then caprylic triglycerides (CYTs), capric triglycerides (CTs) and lauric triglycerides (LTs) were used to treat the obese rats for 12 weeks ... We speculate that the browning process may be related to sympathetic regulation and all the three MCT administration increased the secretion of neurotrophic factors both in the hypothalamus and adipose tissue. Then, intra-adipose sympathetic arborization increased, resulting in the activation of the sympathetic regulatory system in MCT groups, and the LT group also showed the highest sympathetic nerve fiber density, followed by the CT group and CYT group. We have for the first time found that the effect of medium-chain fatty acids on adipose tissue browning might be related to the types of fatty acids"
