Product Description

Size: 32 oz

Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT's) are fats that are naturally found in coconut and palm kernel oil. MCT's are more easily and rapidly digested than other types of fats, as they require lower amounts of enzymes and bile acids for intestinal absorption. MCT's are metabolized very quickly in the liver and are reported to encourage an increase in energy expenditure, while decreasing fat storage. Numerous studies suggest that substituting MCT Oil for other fats in a healthy diet may therefore help to support healthy weight and body composition.*

MCT oil is a great way to boost ketones.
Also, the cap should really be a dripper, there's always a little bit of oil that trickles down onto the bottle and makes it really slippery.
Bob T.
I use MCT Oil every morning in my coffee along with ghee and coconut butter!

MCT oil is excellent for health, weightloss & weight mgmt. I always had a bottle handy @ home but I didn't use it regularly for a while. I had a hard time losing some weight despite regular exercise @ the gym & an improved diet. I usually do well on a low-carb diet when I want to lose weight but this time I wasn't getting any results - I yo-yo'd too much over the yrs & ate very poorly (lots of sugary carbs washed down w/tumblers of strong coffee) for the past 5 yrs, which along w/chronic stress took a slow but steady toll on my health. That was bad, but I can't erase it.

This time, I didn't begin to burn any bodyfat until I started taking this oil in my diet on a daily basis - 1-2 Tbsp in my morning decaf & sometimes another spoonful in my lunchtime protein shake, yogurt or whatever meal I'm having for lunch (esp. moistens meat that cooked too dry). This helped me finally lose the 8 lbs that otherwise wouldn't budge. I never thought it would be so hard to lose a few lbs despite seemingly doing everything else right. It's been 5 months now & I haven't gained them back even though I'm consuming more carbs now.

I use this oil now every day. It has a pleasant "non-taste" that I enjoy b/c it doesn't alter the flavor of whatever I add it to. It's great for energy maintenance (along w/B12 vitamin) & stamina. Before using this oil (plus eating better) I felt worn-out very quickly. Now that I use it regularly I not only get through the day w/o crashing but also through the entire work wk w/o burning out (my job is consistently hectic & very tiring).

I had adrenal exhaustion a yr ago & these kinds of dietary & lifestyle modifications really helped me to recover. The oil is flavorless, colorless, w/a thin consistency, so it's appealing to my palate.

A cure for Alzheimer's? Not exactly but it does provide amazing results. We discovered the use of coconut oil and MCT oil on a website: [...]
which tells the story of a doctor whose husband has Alzheimers. She had remarkable results with giving him this oil three times a day. So, we tried it too along with coconut pills and coconut spread. We also are seeing remarkable improvement's in my mother's dementia. It may not work for everyone, but it's worth checking out.

There are virtually no side effects other than diarrhea if you take too much too soon. It's pretty much tasteless and can be added to food or beverages. Gradually adding it to the diet is recommended.

How it works in a nutshell is that it provides the brain with ketones/triglicerides that the body is no longer producing enough of and sends it directly to the brain, bypassing the liver. It is the adding of these ketones that feed the brain what it is lacking. The side effects of these ketones are less confusion and more memory retention, and patients have remarked that after taking this it is like "turning the light on" in the brain. You can see minimal results after two hours of the first dose. And improvements continue the longer a person takes it in gradually increased doses. You will be completely convinced of its effect if you use it for a month then take it away for a week. Of course, you may have to start all over in smaller doses, but if it is working, you will definitely know. I've personally started adding to my coffee each morning (I'm 42 years old and a diabetic and new studies link Alzheimer's and diabetes)

Baby formulas have MCT forms added because it helps the brain develop and pre-mature babies have been getting it in one form or another since the 60's because of it's effect on the developing brain.

Go to that website, read the research. Check it out for yourself. If it works for you, please spread the good news.

I am in my 50s, and on a ketogenic diet. Apparently, it's harder for older people to produce ketones than it is for children. MCT oil is a great way to boost ketones.

At first I tried taking it by itself. It made me nauseous. Now, I mix it with food--scrambled eggs, soup, salad, etc.--and it's no problem at all. It does help a lot to start small and gradually increase the amount as your body gets used to it.

I first ordered this about 6 months ago to make Dave Asprey's Bulletproof coffee (which also calls for grass-fed butter which can be very hard to find, but my local Trader Joe's carries Kerrygold grass-fed butter). I first made it with 2 TBS of MCT oil and quickly discovered that was too much for me at 145 lbs (I went for a walk right after and had to make like the bear...), so I cut back to 1 TBS which I handled just fine. I heard Dave Asprey on a podcast recommend starting with just 1 tsp to see how well you tolerate it, and to work your way up from there so your body can adjust. Here are the results after 6 months of daily Bulletproof coffee made with 1 TBS MCT oil and 1 TBS grass-fed butter:

1. I have lost 8 pounds EFFORTLESSLY. I did not reduce my calorie intake, at least not intentionally

2. I have a much more steady flow of energy. Rather than the morning caffeine high and mid-day crash and more coffee and more crashing, etc, I now just drink one big mug of bulletproof in the AM and that's it for the day. Again, this took no effort - I just found I no longer wanted or needed any more coffee for the day.

3. I feel great and since I am 57 years old and recently started running, that's noteworthy. I started because I read in Gretchen Reynold's "The First 20 Minutes" book on exercise that the knees of older adults who run are actually healthier that non-runner's knee's. I can now run 3 miles in under 30 minutes which I have been told is pretty spectacular for an old broad. Don't know if it's the MCT oil, but I'm not about to stop drinking my bulletproof to find out. And everything is beautiful and NOTHING HURTS, to quote Kurt Vonnegut.

4. My lower digestive track is healthier - this stuff makes me as regular as clockwork.
