HOW TO USE
MCT stands for Medium Chain Triglycerides which means medium length fatty acids and is a a form of friendly fat mainly derived from coconut. It is one of the best, most bioavailable clean forms of energy for your body and your brain because the body breaks it down more effectively than other fats. MCT is not stored as fat in your body because it is instantly converted to ketones that will be used to energize your brain and body.
MCT’s are often used by athletes who needs instant and sustained energy to boost their performance and improve endurance during a tough workout. MCT’s are also very helpful for weight loss, assisting to keep blood sugar levels stable and control appetite by increasing the feeling of fullness. MCT-oil also improves gut health and reduces inflammation.
Yes you can, MCT oil is beneficial regardless of diet. But as MCT increases the ketone levels in the body it is extra helpful for those who are following the keto diet, as ketones are their primary source of fuel. But no matter if you're following the keto diet or not you will still benefit from using MCT, as ketones are a powerful source of fuel for everyone.
Start with 1 tsp a day if you’re new to MCT and increase gradually to 1-2 tbsp daily for optimal results. Larger amounts can have laxative effects, especially if you take it on an empty stomach.
MCT-powder has the same effect as MCT-oil but is easier for the stomach to digest and is more practical to mix in your coffee without the need of a mixer, plus it's easy to bring on the go. MCT-oil is great for using in cooking or in salad dressings.
Regular coconut oil consists of several types of fatty acids with different lengths, but mostly longer chain fatty acids which are absorbed more slowly in the body and can't be used for instant energy. There are four types of MCT's (medium length fatty acids) in coconut oil. The composition looks like this: - Caproic acid (C6): <3% - Caprylic Acid (C8): 6% - Capric Acid (C10): 9% - Lauric Acid (C12): +50% We have extracted C8 (caprylic acid) because it's the most powerful fatty acid because if its quick absorption and instantly converts to energy. There are 6% C8 MCT in coconut oil compared to 100% C8 in the MCT-oil we use.

I always add MCT oil in my smoothies. I’m not a coffee drinker so the extra energy from the MCT is awesome and very appreciated. It doesn’t taste anything either, just makes my smoothies a bit creamier.Was this helpful?
