Nutritional ketosis is when you successfully use fat as your primary fuel instead of glucose from carbohydrates. This burning of high-quality fats produces ketones. Ketones are the ideal fuel for your mitochondria because they burn cleanly and produce far fewer damaging free radicals or reactive oxygen species (ROS), compared to glucose from carbohydrates.
Source from coconut, this oil is super-easy to use and is virtually tasteless but enhances the flavour of drinks and foods. You can add it to smoothies, blend it with coffee & tea/ other beverages for sustained energy, in fact it goes with any food!
Medium-chain triglycerides, or MCTs, have become especially popular as the word spreads about the many benefits of ketosis, and MCT oil is particularly valuable for creating ketones and maintaining nutritional ketosis.

Because of their rapid conversion to energy, MCTs are an ideal way to help squelch hunger pangs, and boost satiety and satisfaction on a ketogenic diet.
Something many people don’t realize about MCTs is the fact that there are many different kinds, depending on their chemical structure or carbon length. Shorter-chained MCTs are more readily converted into ketones.
Many commercial brands of MCT oil are usually 50/50 combinations of C8 and C10 fats. Some contain very little C8 as it is the most expensive MCT fat and is relatively hard to find. Straight C8 (Caprylic acid) converts to ketones far more rapidly than do C10 fats, and may be easier on your digestion.
