Organic MCT Oil Pure C8: an organic, high-quality, MCT oil
The dietary supplement Organic MCT Oil Pure C8 is an organic MCT oil derived from coconuts. It contains medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) only. Particularly digestible, these fatty acids are not stored in the body’s fat reserves and do not produce weight gain.
What advantages are offered by MCTs?
MCTs are easier to absorb than the long-chain triglycerides present in our normal diet. The latter are first stored in the body’s adipose tissue before being gradually used for energy.
In contrast, MCTs release shorter chain fatty acids into the body, comprising just 6 to 12 carbons. Their small size enables them to enter the bloodstream almost directly, without having to be broken down by the pancreas or gallbladder. They thus penetrate cells easily where they start producing instantly-usable ketones (1-13). MCTs thus offer the advantage of not promoting an increase in fat and of providing the body with ketones.
Why the choice of just C8 caprylic acid?
The MCTs in Organic MCT Oil Pure C8 are not composed of just any fatty acid. We have selected the maximum possible content in C8 caprylic acid. Also known as octanoic acid, this straight-chain saturated fatty acid is composed of 8 carbon atoms.
C8 caprylic acid was first identified in goat’s milk, and thus its name comes from the Latin for goat, capra . It is also found to a lesser degree in breast milk and palm oil. The caprylic acid in Organic MCT Oil Pure C8 comes entirely from coconuts. Note that while there is only 5% C8 caprylic acid in standard coconut oil, Organic MCT Oil Pure C8 contains at least 98%, higher even than most MCT oils on the market.
We have deliberately chosen C8rather than C6 (caproic acid can cause stomach aches), C10 (capric acid is recognised as being less effective than C8) or C12 (lauric acid is the main constituent of standard coconut oils). In addition, this supplement is free from any added excipients.
Organic MCT oil and the keto diet
If you’ve always wanted to try the’keto’ or ketogenic diet, Organic MCT Oil Pure C8 is the perfect accompaniment. As you know, this eating plan focuses on consuming more ‘good’ fats and fewer carbohydrates, in order to reach a state of nutritional ketosis.
When the body is in ketosis, it draws its energy direct from fat stores and so burns fat. The body produces more ketones and the appetite decreases. By increasing your intake of ketone bodies, MCTs enable you to eat a little more carbohydrate and a little less fat, making the diet easier to stick to (14-24).
Attention: do not start a ketogenic diet before consulting your doctor, especially if you suffer from any health condition.
How should you take Organic MCT Oil? Pure, in salads, mixed with mayonnaise ...
Organic MCT Oil Pure C8 can be consumed ‘as it comes’, but you can equally add it to your dishes, using it as a replacement for olive oil, for example (though don’t fry with it if you want to retain all its benefits).
Take your daily dose of half to one capful (10-20ml) of organic MCT oil and mix it with vinegar to make a dressing for salads or crudités, or add it straight to soups, mayonnaise, smoothies or yogurts... Whatever takes your fancy - let your creativity run wild!
Have you heard of ‘Bulletproof Coffee’?
Very much in vogue in the United States, Bulletproof Coffee consists of adding a knob of butter and a dash of MCT oil to your morning coffee.
According to its devotees, the aim of Bulletproof Coffee is to increase the coffee’s effects. The presence of fat in the coffee may also allow you to skip breakfast without then feeling the urge for elevenses and thus help you to avoid the kind of snacking that’s bad for your figure.
Bulletproof Coffee has a number of fans among sportspeople and US film and television celebrities (including the actress Shailene Woodley from Divergent, the presenter Jimmy Fallon...) as well as bio-hackers, the self-improvement enthusiasts who use nutrition to optimise their abilities. Even we at SuperSmart have started drinking it!
So how about you – are you ‘up for’ adding a little butter and MCT OIL Pure C8 to your coffee?
