Some days you just need to feel like a MCT fuelled Superhero…
We won’t claim that our MCT Oil will turn you into an actual bulletproof superhero but our cadets will agree that it will make you feel like one!
More energy, fewer calories, isn’t that what we all want?
Well that’s exactly what MCT Oil gives you. Medium Chain Triglycerides aka MCTs provide, about 10% fewer calories than Long Chain Triglycerides.
MCTs are fats that are very efficient in converting to fuel. They are available for almost immediate use by our organs and muscles because they are more rapidly absorbed by the body than Long Chain Fatty Acids.
The increased energy you get from MCT Oil is attributed to the rapid formation of ketones. MCT’ promote the development of ketones which are used by the brain for energy.
The catch is that once you have done as much research into MCT Oil as our Lab Rats have, you soon start to realise that not all MCT oils are the same.
MCTs are a family and contain 8-12 carbon fatty acid esters of glycerol so we are talking about 3 fatty acids. Coconut or Palm Oil, from which MCT Oil is derived, contains C8:0, C10:0 and C12:0 fatty acid esters. However the ones that are the most beneficial from a dietary and metabolic perspective are C8:0 and C10:0.
BATTLE BREW M-C-T is an Ultra Pure, Pharmaceutical Grade, 60 % C-8:0, 40 % C-10:0 MCT Oil and has 6-8 times higher concentration of C8:0 and C10:0 than normal coconut oil.
