THE PERFECT MCT OIL

Is Onnit MCT the perfect MCT Oil? We believe it's as close as you're gonna get. Our MCT is harvested from 100% coconuts, and processed for purity. Unlike most other brands that harvest MCT's from palm oil, (a much cheaper and environmentally taxing source), by using pure coconut oil we also deliver approximately 30% Lauric Acid, an important form of MCT that acts as a slower burning fuel source. This is an excellent complement to the faster burning C8 and C10 chains (38% and 31% respectively), allowing for a longer energy curve and an optimized digestive experience. In addition, Lauric Acid is a raw source material for the production of monolaurin, a potent nutrient not often found in the normal diet. Monolaurin is actually found naturally occurring in human breast milk and is seldom found in the normal diet.

MCT OIL AND KETOSIS

MCT (Medium Chain Triglycerides) are a particular type of beneficial fat that requires minimal action from the liver to convert directly into fuel in the form of ketones. Ketones are one of the brain’s two primary fuel sources, and also a vital source of ATP energy for the body. ATP energy is what allows every muscle to move inside your body. You may have heard people discussing the ketogenic diet, which is a diet designed to help the body run on ketones (from fats) rather than glycogen (from carbohydrates). This state is called ketosis. For anyone on a ketogenic or low carb diet, MCT oil is pure gold. But you don’t need to go full ‘keto’ to benefit from ketones.

MCT OIL VS. COCONUT OIL

Coconut oil contains MCT’s, but only in relatively small quantities. C8 MCT (Caprylic Acid) comprises roughly 6% of coconut oil, and C10 (Capric acid) is usually around 9%. These two forms of MCT are particularly valuable because they take far fewer steps to convert to caloric energy than the other saturated fat forms found in coconut oil. Coconut oil is great, but if you really want to benefit from the fast acting fuel of MCT’s, choosing Onnit MCT oil is the way to go.

GOOD FOR HUMANS, BETTER FOR ORANGUTANS

Circle icon

Consuming Onnit MCT oil isn’t just good for humans, it’s good for orangutans! Palm oil, the leading constituent in most MCT oils, is typically harvested from native palm forests, contributing to the destruction of some of the last remaining habitats for orangutans. So enjoy our super premium MCT oil and send a karmic high five to the great red ape.

Pretty decent substitute for virgin coconut oil, but can have a very bitter taste if you add it to your food in larger quantities. I generally add about a tablespoon of coconut oil to my chicken breast for lunch to get fats, but when I tried this with it, it is nowhere near the same. It's a vanilla flavored supplement. Definitely works better with some coffee or a protein shake.
