Betterday MCT Oil 250ml.

Our MCT Oil is sourced from 100% premium local Thai coconuts. You can rest easy knowing that the coconuts are sustainably sourced from local farmers and not large industrial enterprises. 

The combination of medium chain triglycerides in our oil is 60% C8 (Caprylic Acid) and 40% C10 (Capric Acid). This means that you can rely on the faster absorption properties of C8 for an instant energy boost while also maintaining the additional anti-microbial benefits of C10 to help boost your immune system.

This formula allows for a much higher concentration of the more desirable MCTs as compared to conventional coconut oil. Despite the focused nature of our MCT oil it remains natural and is hexane free, gluten free, and non-GMO.

Whether you are looking to support a keto diet or just need that extra boost of energy during a busy work day or intense workout, our MCT oil fits the bill perfectly.

What is MCT Oil?

MCT stands for Medium Chain Triglycerides. The fats that make up MCT oil are present in coconut oil, palm kernel oil, and dairy products. By classifying these fats by the number of carbon atoms they have, we can categorize them as short chain (<6 carbon atoms), medium chain (6-10 carbon atoms) and long-chain (>10 carbon atoms).

Why is medium better than long? MCTs are digested more rapidly, and are considered a source of clean fuel for the body and brain. That means they will give your body the energy it needs without filling it with a bunch of stuff it doesn't — such as added sugar and processed ingredients. Long chains take longer to metabolize and get stored as fat in the process. That is why a specialized formula isolating MCT’s only is more efficient that just using coconut or palm kernel oil.

You've probably been trained to fear saturated fat, but researchers and fitness enthusiasts alike suggest that not all saturated fats deserve a bad rep — and that includes the fat found in pure MCT oil. The idea is that by consuming this quick-digesting fat, the body rapidly absorbs and metabolizes it for fuel, while more of the slow-burning longer-chain fats like olive oil, butter, beef fat, palm oil, and coconut oil get stored.

Additionally, the body can convert MCTs into ketones, which are substances created by the liver when it breaks down fat. The body can use ketones as a source of energy for the brain in place of sugar or glucose.
