Will MCT Powder help with Gut Health?Updated 9 months ago

Based on the current evidence on the benefits of acacia fibre in promoting the growth of certain beneficial microbial strains and inhibiting opportunistic flora in the microbiome, the use of our MCT powder may well help to support gut health. 


Furthermore, MCT oil can benefit the gut based on its antimicrobial and antifungal properties, and it is considered safe to use on a long-term basis to help control unwanted overgrowth of certain bacteria and yeast such as candida albicans in the digestive tract. 


Nevertheless, it may not be beneficial to all individuals - you will need to assess your personal tolerance based on your individual gut status and diet. The acacia fibre found in this product is prohibited on the GAPS (Gut and Psychology Syndrome) diet and SCD (Specific Carbohydrate Diet) which is a common diet among those with inflammatory bowel disease.
