This is an interesting convenient supplement I found while researching the benefits of the ketogenic diet approach to cancer treatment, especially Dr. D'Agostino interviews on YouTube. The more ubiquitous MCT oil products give me the runs and stomach aches unless taken in smaller amounts with food but this is more easily tolerated by my system. When you taste this directly in its powder form, it tastes similar to lighter powdery coffee creamer. In your coffee/tea, it tastes pretty much like a light creamer so it actually enhances the taste of the beverages. I could take the supplement on air travel as well since it's in powder form, but I do wish the price were lower since it's so much more costly than the MCT oil brands for equivalent grams per serving (7g fat vs 14g in oil).
I'm taking MCT supplement to help my brain functions since I'm a bit insulin resistant after years of being a borderline prediabetic (now under control, being less sedentary, cutting refined carbs, and eating beans helped). MCT directly fuels your brain and my head keeps clearer and focused for much longer. Studies show MCT holds promise for Huntington's, dementia, and Alzheimers, and it makes sense given that some call Alzheimer's the diabetes of the brain where it can't effectively metabolize glucose for fuel, whereas ketone bodies provide an alternative fuel source to improve cognitive function. Give this supplement a try if your brain keeps getting foggy, as MCT allows for ketone production by liver and bypasses the digestion process to directly fuel your blood stream. Cancer cells can't utilize ketones for fuels, so this is a great supplement to try while restricting sugar/glucose or carbohydrates if you're battling cancer while restricting calories and in nutritional ketosis.
A staple for me being on a ketogenic diet, I use two scoops of this MCT powder along with two tables spoons of grass-fed butter "Kerry Gold" in my coffee and use it as my breakfast every morning. Quest's MCT oil powder makes an excellent creamer in coffee or whatever drink/recipe you would use it in with without adding a coconut taste. I would start slow when incorporating mct's into your diet because it can cause stomach distress until you build up the digestive enzymes and tolerance.
Great for making my smoothie more creamier while giving me the benefits of MCTs. I would purchase again if MCT oil bothers your stomach, I will probably use coconut butter (just pulverized unsweetened shredded coconut) as a cheaper alternative.
I've tried a couple of brands of MCT oil and I like this one the best. I'm on a ketogenic diet and use this as whitener in my tea - it dissolves well and has a decent flavor. Other brands I've tried haven't dissolved as well.
This stuff is great. I put a scoop of it in my coffee with some butter every day. It tastes just like cream in your coffee. Now I'm looking for more creative ways to use it, but my first container is over halfway gone already!
I've been very happy with this product each time I've ordered. I use it in my first cup of coffee in the morning (as creamer?) to add more MCT (Medium Chain Trigicerites - fatty acids) to my diet. I believe it helps support healthy cells and brain function.
