The Surprising Fat That Helps Quell Your Appetite
There are three types of fat molecules: short, medium, and long-chain triglycerides.
The medium chain triglyceride, or “MCT”, helps to break down the nutritional value of vegetables. it also helps to support and heal the skin. It is also a great anit-aging source.
MCTs are water dispersable, but they are not totally water soluble. However, the short chain fatty acid, or “SCFA”, is totally water soluble and can thusly enter the blood quickly.
SCFAs can enter the brain very quickly due to the fact that they can enter the blood so quickly. They can act as a signaling molecule that tells the brain what is going on in the digestive system, and act as an appetite suppressant.
Butter is an example of an SCFA that has multiple benefits. It helps your heart health, it lowers cholesterol synthesis, and also levels your blood sugar. It also acts as a thermogenic agent which can assist the body’s metabolism and burning of stored fat.
Think about that the next time you hear someone tell you that eating real butter is not good for you!
