About MCT Oil
What is MCT Oil?
MCT oil is a quality fat that comes from coconuts. It has tons of uses in the kitchen, such as salad dressings or as a boost of fat in a keto-friendly dip or spread. It can also be used as a dietary supplement to support your energy and brain power while helping to reduce cravings.† “MCT” is short for medium-chain triglycerides. Triglycerides are the molecules that make up most fats, and medium-chain triglycerides naturally occur in coconut oil, palm oil, goat milk and breast milk. Bulletproof MCT Oil is sourced from coconuts, providing you with a quality fat you can feel good about.
When you add MCT oil to your coffee or food (especially the C8 MCT oil in Bulletproof Brain Octane C8 MCT Oil), you can raise fat-burning, brain-fueling molecules in your body called ketones.† Anyone on a ketogenic (also known as keto) diet knows that ketones a main source of energy when in ketosis, a state where your body burns fat instead of sugar. Not on a keto diet? No problem. You’ll still get the fat burning and brain-powering benefits of MCT oils.†;
What is C8 MCT Oil?
Caprylic acid, or C8 MCT oil, makes up only about 6% of coconut oil. It is metabolized quickly in the liver to ketones, which the brain uses as a powerful energy source. It’s the quality fat found in Bulletproof Brain Octane Oil.
We also offer a powerful blend of C8 and C10 MCT oils in Bulletproof MCT Oil. C10 MCT oil, also known as capric acid, makes up only about 7% of coconut oil. It’s slower to turn into energy, but more affordable than C8. Bulletproof MCT Oil is an economical choice if you’re just getting started on your low-carb journey. Bulletproof MCT Oil contains a blend of C10 and C8 MCT oils, two MCTs that your body can turn into energy for your mind and body.†
Purity matters when it comes to MCTs. Bulletproof uses triple-steam distillation to make the purest, most stable MCT oil possible. That means what ends up in your bottle is pure MCT oil and nothing else.
The Bulletproof process is unique because it highly refines, lab-tests for purity and involves no chemical additives.
Brain Octane Oil and Bulletproof MCT Oil are manufactured in the United States, sourced from imported coconut oil—which are more sustainable and environmentally friendly than palm kernel oil. Try our MCT oil and experience the difference quality makes in your daily routine.
