100% Pure MCT Oil with Caprylic Acid (C:8) and Capric Acid (C:10)
MCT oil is one of the fastest sources of clean fuel for the body and brain. With fewer steps to convert into caloric energy than carbohydrates, it is hands down one of the best ways to power up your mental and physical performance and kick-start your health and nutrition program.
MCTs are easily digested and processed in the liver, providing instant fuel rather than being stored as fat in the body. The MCTs found in coconut oil can also break down into ketones, which can be used by brain cells for fuel.
MCTs or Medium Chain Triglycerides (of Medium Chain Fatty Acids) are fatty acids of a certain length, as the name suggests. They are considered easily digestible and beneficial fats, and instead of being metabolized through digestion like most other foods, these fats are processed in the liver. MCTs provide fast and lasting energy and are easily absorbed by the body. It is translucent and tasteless and remains liquid at room temperature.
Harvested from 100% fresh coconuts, and processed for purity. It is completely free from palm oil, which is a much cheaper and environmentally taxing source. By using 100% pure coconut oil we deliver a significant amount of the faster burning chains C8: Caprylic Acid and C10: Capric Acid (58.5% and 41.3% respectively), allowing for a longer energy curve and optimized digestive experience.
Coconut Oil Vs MCT Oil
The main difference between our virgin coconut oil (VCO) and MCT oil is that the VCO contains predominantly Lauric (C:12), Capric (C:10) and Caprylic (C:8) acid. The MCT oil contains only Capric (C:10) and Caprylic (C:8) acid, it has had the Lauric acid removed. Lauric Acid (C:12) is also an MCT and a highly prized ingredient in VCO. It composes the saturated content which makes the oil highly stable and therefore ideal for cooking. It also converts to monolaurin in the body which offers powerful immune boosting properties plus many other health benefits.
So why remove the prized Lauric Acid ingredient?
MCT oil is a unique concentrate of only Capric C:10 and Caprylic C:8 acid, derived from coconut oil these two MCTs hold specific benefits in their own right. C:8 and C:10 are prized for their infusion of ketones in the body which plays a vital role in providing brain and body fuel. Whereas Lauric acid (C:12) is processed by the body in a different way. VCO is a whole food with enormous benefits. MCT oil is a supplement designed for its specific C:8 and C:10 energy boosting qualities.
MCT oil has no taste and no aroma, and it does not have a high heating smoke point as our VCO does, therefore we do not recommend you use MCT oil for cooking, but rather take it as a body fuel supplement.
The well-known blend of MCT oil and coffee (Magic Bullet) synergizes as a stimulant in the body to offer a healthier slow release energy boost, rather than a quick boost followed by a crash. The oil also helps to reduce the acidic effects caused by the caffeine in the digestion.
All MCTs are super healthy fats/oils and will offer their own unique and powerful health benefits. It is a good idea to include a combination of healthy oils in a way that will suit your own personal health requirements.
MCT Oil is great for athletes, bodybuilders, and active individuals because of its capacity to be quickly converted into clean energy.
√ Quick energy: MCTs are absorbed into the bloodstream and directly converted into energy by the liver. Unlike other types of food, MCTs do not require to be stored or used in the body for energy, making it the most efficient natural source of energy.
Athletic performance: MCT Oil is an elite fuel for athletes because of its quick rate of absorption and energy density. Many athletes experience an increased performance from consuming MCTs pre or post workout for sustained energy and muscle recovery.
Easy to digest: MCT’s do not need bile salts to be broken down before being absorbed into the bloodstream - they are sent directly to the liver and converted into energy, making them easier to digest than long chain fatty acids. The body can, therefore, utilize the energy more quickly and efficiently. MCT is often a great option for people with digestive issues.
Ketosis: The body uses two major forms of energy: glucose and ketones. A diet high in healthy fats can support the production of ketones, feeding cells in the entire body, but especially in the brain. Using ketones as a source of energy will help stabilize blood sugar levels, reduce inflammation and enhance cognitive function.
Fat for Fuel & appetite control: MCT Oil is quickly burned and metabolized in the system. It gets absorbed directly from the intestine to the liver and quickly converted into energy, rather than being stored as fat. This increases satiety as less energy intake is required from the body. Many studies have proven that the daily consumption of MCT Oil has been effective in promoting body fat loss.
Immunity: MCT oil has antibacterial and antiviral properties and can be effective in maintaining health and immunity. Healthy fats are essential to support immune function and because it is easily absorbed in the body, MCT oil can be a great alternative for those who have trouble absorbing fats.
