MCT oil pure C8 MCT’s are becoming increasingly popular today as a plant based fuel source as they supply an alternative energy for our body and brain. So what are the benefits to MCT oil?
Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT’s) are dietary triglycerides with fatty acids chains that are 6–12 carbon atoms in length found in many foods having their highest concentration in Coconut Oil. The most important of these MCT’s in Coconut Oil are known as Caprylic (C8) and Capric acids (C10), however the content in coconut oil is small and we extract roughly 60% of the C8 and 40% of the C10 to achieve 100% MCT Oil.
MCT’s are becoming increasingly popular today as a plant based fuel source as they supply an alternative energy for our body and brain not dependent on insulin and are easily digested within the body. MCT’s support the switch to fat burning making it the most important addition to a healthy weight loss or ketogenic diet.
We have highlighted the difference between virgin coconut oil and our MCT oil below:
During digestion, MCT’s are transported directly to the liver where they are preferentially converted into bio-available ketone bodies. On the contrary, long chain triglycerides (LCT), found in common vegetable oils, require the actions of bile to be transported via the lymphatic system to the bloodstream where free fatty acids are absorbed by the cells of the body and are either broken down for energy or stored as fat.
Introducing Jimalie's Pure C8 MCT oil - Available 22nd April 2019
To compiment our 60/40 MCT mentioned above, we have come up with a premium C8 MCT. Jimalie C8 MCT Oil is a concentration of up to 98% Caprylic acid (C8). C8 is a Medium Chain Triglyceride found in coconut known to rapidly metabolize into ketones in the body, which can be used by the brain for instant energy without relying on glucose from dietary sugars or carbohydrates for energy.
Caprylic acid (MCT C8) is readily absorbed by the liver, providing a plant-based source of sustained energy, free from sugar, carbohydrates and fillers. Caprylic Acid also aids in the re-balancing of yeast in your gut and can help to bring Candida into balance in your system. It can also be used to treat skin conditions due to its antibacterial and antimicrobial properties.
Our MCT oil is perfect for those living the Keto, Paleo and Vegan lifestyles. They are Gluten Free, Soy Free and Non GMO.
