Best MCT oil on the market. I’ve tried several but they don’t have the same effect as Brain Octane C8 MCT. I feel the difference in my body and losing weight. Thanks for a great product.

How to make Bulletproof Coffee


Organic is great. But when it comes to MCT oils, you want purity and C8 for the greatest benefits. Bulletproof Brain Octane oil and MCT oil are purer than organic MCT oils. Here’s what that means.

In order to call an MCT oil organic, companies have to keep everything as it was in nature. During production, manufacturers keep the coconut oil intact and filter it down to try and isolate the MCTs.

The problem? C8 is a tiny fraction of coconut oil. Manufacturers can only filter out so much, and there’s a ceiling on the amount of C8 and C10 left in the final product. And because the oil is filtered and not distilled, there’s a chance organic MCT oil will still contain coconut residue, potential allergens and coconut flavor.

Bulletproof MCT oils are different — we fractionally distill and isolate C8 and C10 out of the coconut using water, pressure, and heat in a clean environment. We don’t use any solvents or chemicals, and we test the final product for purity and high potency.

The end result is a more effective MCT oil.

Brain Octane oil and MCT oil contain high-purity C8 and C10 without any of the residual coconut material, leftover coconut flavor or unwanted fatty acids that you might find in organic MCT oils.

We want to give you the best MCT oil possible. We’re willing to pass up on the organic sticker if it means we’re giving you a more potent product.

This is a little like comparing apples to oranges. Coconut oil and MCT oil are both awesome, but they have very different uses.

Coconut oil primarily contains an MCT called lauric acid (C12), which has some immune system benefits. Use coconut oil for baking and cooking up to 350°F.

Brain Octane and MCT oil are distilled to isolate C8 and C10, the most ketogenic MCTs. You’d have to eat a lot more coconut oil to get the same ketone energy as Bulletproof MCT oils.

Use Bulletproof MCT oils when you want to boost your ketones, supplement your diet with quality fats and upgrade your meals and beverages with fat-burning, brain-powering fuel.

If you haven’t used MCT oil before, you might experience stomach upset or diarrhea. Start with just a teaspoon (or even less) to give your body time to adjust.

Yes, you can cook with MCT oil in recipes up to 320°F. Here are some ideas:

  • Use it to make pesto, salad dressings and sauces
  • Blend it into hot and cold beverages like coffee and smoothies
  • Drizzle it over your favorite dishes as a finishing touch

Did you know? Oil accentuates fat-soluble flavors. Brain Octane oil and MCT oil give your meals an extra kick of fat-burning, brain-powering fuel.

You can use MCT oil outside the kitchen. Use it to moisturize your skin and hydrate your scalp and hair. Check out 10 ways to use Brain Octane oil.

Studies show that MCTs create ketones, which cause your body to burn fat and calories, regardless of your diet.

Yes. MCT oil taken at night won’t keep you awake. Instead, it’ll rapidly convert into ketones, which fuel your brain while you sleep.

Not at all. However, some people struggle to eat enough high-quality fats to stay in ketosis. Plus, C8 MCT oil — what you’ll find in Brain Octane oil — is a powerful way to efficiently boost your ketone levels and stay in ketosis.

No. The term “MCT oil” can refer to four different strains: C6, C8, C10, and C12. Brain Octane oil is C8 MCT oil, the most ketogenic part of coconut oil.

High-quality MCT oil is a powerful way to upgrade your brain. That’s because C8 MCT oil turns into ketones within minutes. Ketones quickly cross the blood-brain barrier and can be used as a fuel source for brain cells, giving you steady energy.

Brain Octane oil and MCT oil allow you to stay in ketosis and help curb cravings so you can fast longer.
