MCT is a fantastic product that has received praise and become popular thanks to high fat, low carb diets to help with weight management goals. There's also increasing evidence for the benefits of MCT beyond that - from enhanced mitochondrial function, to increased athletic and cognitive performance, to improving headaches, satiety and energy levels throughout the day!

Product Notes:

Metagenics is one of the best research-based supplement brands, and they have concentrated their MCT oil to contain 90% caprylic (C8) and capric (C10) acid triglycerides into a convenient powder form - perfect for use in hot or cold beverages or in baking.

To achieve the metabolic state of nutritional ketosis (when the liver quickly converts fat into ketones to better serve the energy needs of our body and brain at the cellular level instead of relying on glucose as the primary energy source), followers of the keto diet consume a lot of healthy fats and a moderate amount of high-quality protein, and confine themselves to less than 50 grams of carbohydrates per day. While a number of dietary fats will be included such as avocados, butter, olive oil, nuts, and seeds, medium chain triglycerides (MCT) isolated from foods such as coconuts are an excellent type of fat to add to the mix, since these medium-chain fatty acids are less complex (with just 6, 8, or 10 carbons per molecule, compared to the 14 to 18 found in our most common long-chain dietary fatty acids), and so get metabolized quite differently -- hardly any of them gets stored in our membranes like adipose tissue to be used later, so they are available to get converted to ketones at a higher rate, right away. And recent research indicates the C8 (caprylic acid) and C10 (capric acid) lengths in particular can be used as a direct fuel for the brain, providing sustained energy and focus, since they do not have to be broken down by the liver and by lipase.
