From Maggie Yu MD IFMCP:
"I use it on my salads, smoothies, and coffee to provide critical fat needed for hormone balancing, brain health, and as a plus, it helps kill infection!"
What it does: Nourishment for body, brain, and beauty
- Supports Ketone production without the need for carbohydrate restriction
- Healthy cognitive function and mental clarity
- Cellular energy generation
- Healthy body weight
How it helps: PRO-MCT C8 is 100% pure caprylic acid sourced exclusively from coconut oil. Each 1-Tbsp serving provides 14 grams of caprylic acid convenient for adding to coffee or tea, using in shakes and smoothies, or incorporating into recipes as needed. Add to a salad, mix with a shake, or take alone for 10 grams of PRO-MCT C8 per serving. MCT can also be used topically for many beauty regimes and as a carrier oil for essential oils.
Caprylic acid is a medium-chain fatty acid with 8 carbon atoms, hence its chemical shorthand, C8. Medium-chain fatty acids have unique properties that distinguish them from other fatty acids and which give them utility for adding to ketogenic diets as well as for incorporating into other dietary approaches.
MCTs are special fats that the body readily converts into ketones, even when someone is not on a ketogenic diet. Ketones are an energy source that most cells and tissues in the body can use, but which are especially known for fueling the brain. This may explain the mental clarity and sharp cognition many people report when adding MCT oil to their morning beverage. MCTs are digested and absorbed differently than other fats. Owing to this unique metabolism, MCTs can elevate ketone levels without the need for carbohydrate restriction, making Pro-MCT C8 a potentially beneficial tool for individuals who enjoy the distinct effects of MCTs regardless of the diet they follow.
The unique properties of MCTs make them more easily used as an energy source, rather than being stored as body fat. When used to replace a portion of other dietary fat, consumption of modest amounts of MCT oil, may be beneficial as one part of a multifaceted strategy for healthy fat loss.
