Many people think that well developed muscles are evidence of physical fitness. Firm, toned muscles are considered esthetically pleasing, and hundreds of thousands of people spend untold hours to appear "muscular." Their appearance notwithstanding, muscles are specialized tissues that contract to produce body movement.

Muscle cells require great energy to contract, especially during intense exercise and endurance training. Nature has evolved a sophisticated system to produce energy that the body needs. Energy is released when muscle cells break down carbohydrate, fat, and protein. The body utilizes these nutrients in rather specific amounts during physical activity. Carbohydrates are the body's most readily available source of nutrient energy. Carbohydrates are digested and metabolized to generate glucose, which serves as the immediate source of fuel. Excess glucose not directly used to yield energy is transported via the bloodstream to liver and muscle tissue, where it is stored in the form of glycogen.

In contrast, fat is the body's richest source of food energy. Unlike glycogen, fat is stored in the fat cells and, therefore, is less readily available for energy production. In order for fat to be used as an energy source, it first must be broken down into fatty acids, which are then transported by the blood to the muscles to be burned. Protein is required for the repair and recovery of muscle tissue.

Intense exercise on a regular basis can induce muscle fatigue. Thus, people are recognizing more and more that carbohydrates are an essential factor in preventing muscle fatigue. Carbohydrates, especially refined sugars, are not an ideal source of immediate energy needed to maintain an exercise regimen. Medium chain triglycerides (MCTs), however, can help the athlete develop stamina and endurance.

MCTs are unique in that, in the presence of carbohydrates, they can be turned into energy inside the mitochondria, the powerhouses of energy production in the cell. Conventional fats can be burned only after the carbohydrate reservoir of the cell has been depleted. This has important implications in that the burning of MCTs in the presence of carbohydrates spares glycogen and, hence, production of ketones. Both prolong endurance for training and stamina.

Medium chain triglycerides also improve the absorption of amino acids, which are critical for muscle tissue repair. Furthermore, MCTs also improve the absorption of calcium and magnesium. These minerals are needed for carbohydrate and amino acid metabolism to improve muscle contraction response time.

MCTs are digested immediately after ingestion as they are hydrolyzed by the enzyme lipase, which is present in the saliva. Additionally, energy released by the digestion and metabolism of MCTs is converted in the body into heat by a process called thermogenesis, which favorably affects the basal rate of metabolism. When the body converts energy into heat, the metabolism increases and, in turn, leads to fat loss.
