The first is virgin coconut oil that has been cold-pressed and is made up of four main fatty acids. This kind of coconut oil is a slow-burning source of energy that smells and tastes like coconut and gets hard at some temperatures.

The second type is the MCT or medium chain triglyceride upgrade, which is refined down to a 50/50 blend of only the c8 and c10 oils and is much faster absorbed and provides energy much more efficiently. MCT oils have no flavor or odor.

The third type is the pure C8 MCT oil of brain 8. The c8 is transported directly to your liver, where it begins breaking down fat into ketones, putting you into a state of ketosis, which is when you’re burning fat instead of carbohydrates for energy. A C8 MCT oil has been shown to be twice as effective in raising blood ketone levels when compared to a standard 50/50 blend of C8 C10 MCT oils and far more potent than just coconut oil by boosting blood ketone levels you are…
