I’m always looking for elixirs that promote better health, so I was thrilled when my nutrition guru, Dr. Frank Lipman, showed me his new Be Well MCT Oil. MCT stands for medium-chain triglycerides, a type of fat that, Dr. Lipman says, is essential for everything from maintaining muscle mass to staving off memory loss. Dr. Lipman has emulsified his formula into this easy-to-digest pineapple-coconut-flavored concoction, which happen to be the two fruits in my morning smoothie. Kismet.
