Benefits of MCT oil Powder.
“MCTs” are medium-chain triglycerides, a form of saturated fatty acid that have numerous health benefits, ranging from improved cognitive function to metabolic health and better weight management.
At present most coffee shops you walk into have some variation of a Keto or bulletproof Coffee (aka coffee with butter and MCT oil) on the menu. Even if you know a bit about MCT oil or Ketones you probably still have lingering questions. What is MCT oil exactly?
There are four different types of MCTs: C6, C8, C10, and C12.
The benefits of MCT oil are: rapid weight loss, suppresses hunger; digests easily; more brain power; strengthens the gut; and boosts your workouts.
MCT oil is a purified form of saturated fatty acids. It typically comes from a mix of coconut oil and palm oil. We use 100% coconut derived MCT in our products.
C8 -C10 are the beneficial chains — studies show it’s the most ketogenic, which we only use in our products. These bypass the digestive tract and goe straight to the liver, where it’s converted into fat-burning ketones.
MCTs are largely missing from the typical Western diet, so adding MCT to your daily routine can be a powerful way to get the benefits of these multi-tasking fats.
MCT can be added to your food or drink or simply into your Keto or Bulletproof Coffee.
C-8 turn into fat-burning ketones more effectively and C-10 has positive implications for mitochondrial health and energy production within the cell. As a quick ketone primer or when you cut down on carbs, your body goes from burning glucose to burning ketones, an alternative source of fuel. They bypass the digestive tract and go straight to the liver, where they are converted into fat-burning ketones. Burning ketones carries a host of benefits, including Cognitive function, energy metabolism, reduced inflammation, cell signalling and weight loss.
Studies show that MCTs, particularly C8 and C10, cause your body to burn fat and calories, no matter what kind of diet you follow. MCT oil also creates ketones, and ketones increase your metabolic rate (aka your metabolism) and burn the fat you already have. MCT are even converted into ketones in the presence of some carbohydrates.
MCT oil is a healthy fat that is satiating, so you can go for longer periods without eating other snacks, and get to lunchtime without an energy crash. There’s science behind it: MCTs raise ketones, and ketones suppress ghrelin (aka your hunger hormone), and increase cholecystokinin (CCK), which makes you feel full.
MCT oil is digested differently as it gets absorbed directly from the gut into the liver, bypassing the physiology of being stored as fat.
High-quality MCT oil turns into ketones within minutes, providing your brain with an almost immediate jolt of energy. “When someone’s carbs are low enough, MCT oil can be converted into ketones, which unlike glucose, can cross the blood-brain barrier and be used as a fuel source for brain cells
MCT oil encourages good bacteria to grow and heals the gut lining. When you have holes in your intestine, toxins, bacteria, and food particles can escape and enter your bloodstream, putting you at risk for serious gastrointestinal (GI) disorders including inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and food allergies. MCTs are also strong antifungals, antivirals, and antibacterials. We also have added Acacia which is a prebiotic to feed your healthy new good bacteria and enhance your microbiome and gut further.
