MCT oils give you the focus and get-up-and-go to burn through your day. A clean, high-energy source rapidly absorbed by your body and brain, Pure Health C8 MCT delivers a fast but sustained burst of vitality that perks you up for hours, without the “crash” that you may get with sugars or carbs.
It’s easy to confuse MCT oil with coconut oil, but there’s one important difference. MCTs in coconut oil contain large amounts of Lauric acid (C12) which acts more like a long-chain fatty acid that’s harder for your body to digest. That means you don’t get the “instant energy” that other MCTs like C8 and C10 can deliver.
Ever felt drowsy a few hours after breakfast or lunch? It’s not the greatest way to tackle your day, whether you’re busy at work, sitting down to study, about to hit the gym or just doing daily errands.
The secret behind MCT oils is its “convertibility” into energy — your body’s able to suck up MCTs almost instantly and put that energy straight to work.
Plus, MCT oil is completely tasteless, so it’s ideal for use in a variety of foods/drinks, making it easier to fit in your daily diet.
Power Your Workouts
It’s no surprise that fitness fans and athletes alike flock to MCTs. Their rapid absorption into clean, sustainable and instantly accessible energy makes it a popular pre-workout alternative to the usual carbs before hitting the gym. MCTs have proven especially effective for high-intensity training.
Good for your gut
MCTs have antiviral and antibacterial properties to help protect your gut, and there’s evidence they can also balance gut bacterial levels by stimulating good bacteria to grow. Plus, because they’re so readily used by your body, your digestive system gets a welcome break.
Fuel For Your Brain
Able to pass through your “blood-brain barrier”, ketones can be used by your central nervous system and brain almost immediately⁴. But the benefits go well beyond a few hours of your day. Studies have shown MCTs can boost cognition when suffering from brain-related illnesses like Alzheimer’s Disease.
Easy to use
The oil is flavourless, clear, and can tolerate temperatures up to 160C, so it’s perfect to add to food or drink — like protein shakes, smoothies, soups, salad dressing, and of course, butter coffee — without hurting the taste. You can also use it as a healthier substitute for other oils during meal preparation and cooking.
Feel full for longer
The full feeling you get from MCT oil is due to the release of peptide YY and leptin, two hormones that promote fullness. MCTs do more than just help curb your hunger. They enhance thermogenesis and fat oxidation, which heats up your body, speeding up your metabolism and increasing fat-burning to stave off hunger pangs.
Start with 1 teaspoon per day and add to any hot or cold food. Increase gradually to 1 tablespoon, reduce dose if any adverse effects are experienced.
Too much MCT oil, especially when consumed on an empty stomach, may cause stomach ache or have a laxative effect. If you experience any discomfort, reduce serving size.
