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. These MCTs found in coconut oil are caprylic (C8), capric (C10) and lauric (C12) acids.
Jimalie MCT C8 Oil is a concentration of up to 98% caprylic acid (C8). Of all the medium chain triglycerides, caprylic acid is known to rapidly metabolise into ketones in the body the fastest, which can be used by the brain for instant energy without relying on glucose from dietary sugars or carbohydrates for energy.
Caprylic acid (C8) is readily absorbed by the liver, providing a plant-based source of sustained energy, free from sugar, carbohydrates and fillers.
Caprylic acid (C8) is known to have antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties that are beneficial for your gut and skin.
Caprylic acid (C8) is metabolised to ketone bodies that provide an alternative source of energy to glucose for the brain.
Jimalie C8 MCT Oil is a popular companion to low carb, keto, paleo and vegan diets. It is completely odourless, tasteless and mixes easily into your daily energy beverage.
