Organic Coconut Oil
At 40% of calories from fat, coconut oil is the cornerstone ingredient of Electro-Bites. Coconut oil is a medium chain triglyceride that is quickly absorbed, metabolized and converting into energy with very little gastric activity. Medium chain triglycerides are easy on the stomach as they are rapidly absorbed in the small intestine then transported to the liver where they are converted to energy. The research is extensive that there are many health benefits including those most important to athletes:
* reducing inflamation
* digestive aid to absorption of other nutrients including vitamins, minerals and amino acids
* improved insulin secretion and utilization of blood glucose
* antioxidant protection
* immune system support
* anti-bacterial and anti viral properties
