Do MCTs increase exercise endurance?

A lot of studies in the past have shown that MCT help in lowering weight, decreasing metabolic syndrome, abdominal obesity & inflammation. But it’s role in supporting exercise endurance was only studied recently.

It found that an MCT-rich diet improves high temperature induced exercise performance impairment i.e., when body's core temperature increase it results in significant drop in exercise performance due to central nervous system dysfunction and cardiovascular instability.

The study showed that MCT up-regulates the expression and protein levels of genes involved in mitochondrial biogenesis or in simple words(promotes the the process by which cells increase mitochondrial numbers thus increase energy levels) and metabolism. 

It was found that MCT containing diet improves high temperature induced exercise performance impairment.
