What is MCT oil?

You may have seen this term often, yet may still be wondering what it really is or why everyone is talking about it? Simply put, MCT oil is a concentrated source of 100% MCTs known for boosting metabolism, energy production, and improving mental focus. It’s popular with bodybuilders and endurance athletes who use it to increase energy, decrease body fat, and increase lean muscle mass. 

What is MCT Oil?

MCT oil is short for Medium-Chain-Triglycerides, a triglyceride consists of three fatty acids and a glycerol molecule. This all natural, saturated fat, derived from refined coconut or palm kernel oil, and extracted. Making it 100% pure, this process is called fractionation. This separates the MCT from the original oil and concentrates it.

The difference in fatty acid chain length that makes MCTs unique in comparison to LCTs, longer chain fatty acids that take longer time to breakdown. MCT doesn't require enzymes or bile acids for digestion. They are rapidly absorbed by your liver, and used for immediate energy or converted into ketones.

Ketones are compounds produced when your liver breaks down a lot of fat. Your body can use them for energy instead of glucose or sugar. Unlike other fatty acids, MCT's are less likely to be stored as fat, making it more beneficial than any other fatty acid when it comes to weight loss.

MCT Oil in a Keto Diet

MCT oil is popular among those following a keto diet. A keto or ketogenic diet is a low-carb, moderate protein, higher-fat diet that can help you burn fat more effectively. The high intake of fat and low intake of carbs puts your body in a state of nutritional ketosis, in which it burns fat instead of glucose for fuel.

Example of a Ketogenic Diet

While you eat far fewer carbohydrates on a keto diet, you maintain moderate protein consumption and may increase your intake of fat. The reduction in carb intake puts your body in a metabolic state called ketosis, where fat, from your diet and from your body, is burned for energy. Yes, you can burn your own fat and turn it into energy with the help of MCT oil! There has also been evidence that it may boost strength and endurance in your workouts, by raising energy levels in your muscles.

Compared with coconut oil, MCT oil is better for ketone production and maintaining ketosis. Fatty acids that promote the formation of ketones are called ketogenic. Keto Brew is considered ketogenic, therefore it is highly beneficial while following a Keto diet. Keep in mind, you are not required to be on a Keto diet to enjoy Keto Brew either, being that it's all natural, and only 23 calories per serving, it fits effortlessly with any Lifestyle!

The ketogenic diet isn't just for weight loss, it has been used medically for nearly 100 years to treat drug-resistant epilepsy! The first medium-chain triglycerides ever isolated were in the mid-1900s and used to manage epileptic seizures.

Anti-Inflammatory 

Soothe and even treat skin infections from within! Lauric acid, found in MCT's, act as an antibiotic, breaking down bacterial and virus walls from within, which may help soothe and even treat skin infections and decrease inflammation, the root cause of many different diseases. This decrease of inflammation also occurs in the brain. Creating good bacteria such as; intestinal flora (gut bacteria) is surprisingly important to brain health. 

How MCT Fires Up Brain Function

 

MCT Oil’s Brain Benefits

Taking MCT oil has been found to increase brain energy by 8 to 9%.

MCTs can delay brain aging by promoting the repair of brain cell damage, especially when you combine supplementation with a high-fat diet. 

Your good gut bacteria produce dozens of neurotransmitters, brain chemicals used by brain cells to communicate with each other.
