Paleo Pure MCT Powder (Pure C8 C10) 180g
MCT = Medium Chain Triglycerides
MCT's are known for providing you with quick energy and a sharper brain. They’re absorbed more quickly than other fats and easily converted into energy.
The way they are metabolised in your body are unlike other fatty acids and it gives them a unique edge in providing brain fuel and a host of other benefits.
MCT's bypass your digestive tract and go straight to your liver where they’re broken down into energy-packed ketones, then sent out to the rest of your body via your bloodstream. That quick conversion of fat to ketones for energy is what most people look for when they buy MCT's.
Ours is a powder for improved tolerance – oils can create a challenge to digest and makes it much easier to use.
C8 (Caprylic Acid) has potent anti-microbial properties (way more potent than lauric acid) to help you maintain a healthy gut, and it is the fastest to metabolize in the brain. Your liver does not need to process this rare type of MCT, and it only takes 3 steps for your body to turn it into ATP, the cellular fuel you use, sugar takes 26 steps. This is how our MCT powder manages cravings and promotes fat burning.
18 tablespoons of coconut oil is equivalent to 1 tbs of C8.
C10 (Capric Acid) This is the second shortest form of MCT, also rare. It is slower to turn into energy. C10 and C8, are the only two MCT oils that turn into ATP quickly bypassing the liver. You would need 6 tablespoons of coconut oil to get one tablespoon of C6 equivalent.
Directions - Add 1 heaped teaspoon to your favourite hot or cold drink, water or smoothie. Use blender for best results. Start with 1 teaspoon a day and increase each week as your body tolerates.
