MCT’s are turned into energy faster than any other oil or fat. This makes it indispensable for the keto diet, where fat is the main fuel. This Guide answers all questions about MCT Oil that you may have as a beginning or advanced ketonian. Find out how to put MCT’s to good use in your keto lifestyle!
MCT stands for Medium Chain Triglycerides (medium chain fatty acids). This type of fat goes almost directly to the liver to be turned into ketones for energy. MCT is a very quick source of energy for our body, which makes it indispensable in the keto diet, in which fat is your fuel instead of carbs.
Since your body gets its energy from fat with a keto diet, MCT is the best and purest form. This type of fat can also be found in foods that you can buy at the supermarket, such as coconut oil and butter. However, the disadvantage is that these foods only contain the good MCT’s in very small proportions. And they often contain (small amounts) carbohydrates that you want to avoid. MCT Oils ensure that you get the energy you need without the carbohydrates.
Takeaway: MCT’s are the purest and best digestible source of fat that your body can get. Since the keto diet means that fat is your primary fuel, they are indispensable for the keto lifestyle.
The oil is converted into ketones almost immediately after you take it. For a super quick energy boost, you can just take a spoonful when you need it. KetoFitShop offers you a number of varieties, flavored and unflavored, so find your favorite!
Another way to take your MCT’s is to enrich your morning coffee with the oil, together with some butter or ghee. Mix it well using a blender or milk frother. The result is a creamy and delicious drink that keeps you satisfied, energized, and focused for hours. Among ketonians, it’s known as bulletproof coffee.
Finally, you can use any of our MCT Oils to power up your shakes, smoothies, and other drinks with a solid MCT boost – the keto way to make a good thing even better.
When you’re new to using MCT’s, it’s best to start with small amounts, for instance with two 5ml teaspoons a day. That’s because you may need some time to get used to it – the oil is so pure and quickly absorbed, it can quite speed up your digestion and cause discomfort.
Then, as your body gets used to it, you can slowly increase the amount to 2 or 3 15ml tablespoons each day, to have the full benefit.
You can take it whenever you like – e.g. at breakfast, with a salad, or with your dinner – but to get the full effect of your MCT intake, we advise you to take it about an hour before a meal. This will make its ketone boost roughly three times higher than when you take it with food.
The amount of MCT is the same in both powder form and oil. The only difference is, you have to dry the oil to make a powder. This drying is done by spraying the oil on acacia fiber that absorbs the oil. This means MCT powder also contains extra fiber, which is not in the oil. Those fibers could actually come in handy to aid digestion when you are on the keto diet.
When you read about MCT’s, you often see the designation C8 or C10. This stands for the number of carbon atoms that a fatty acid contains. The smaller the number, the shorter the chain and the faster the body can use it as energy. So pure C8 oil gives you that quick energy. The C10 takes a little longer to digest and gives you more lasting energy, a little later on. Many people choose C8, but we think that the combination is a great choice as well. Pure C8 is more expensive because it takes a lot of coconut oil to make pure C8 oil. Which is another reason to recommend a mix of C8 (60%) and C10 (40%). You save money and you get both fast (C8) and longer-lasting (C10) energy.
MCT Oil can be produced from coconut oil or palm kernel oil; both contain MCT’s. However, since palm oil production is usually far from sustainable and a great burden for the environment, at KetoFitShop we make sure that we only offer MCT made of pure premium sustainably sourced coconut oil. When choosing a good MCT product, always check whether it is:
Of course, you can rely on KetoFitShop. We make sure that our MCT Oils meet all these conditions.
Takeaway: When choosing an MCT Oil, make sure they’re pure and clean, C8 or a C8/C10 combination and made of sustainably sourced coconut oil. Our MCT Oils meet the highest standards.
