Let’s talk about why some people enjoy having MCT oil in their coffee.

You may have heard of something called bulletproof coffee. Bulletproof coffee is one 8oz-12oz cup of coffee mixed with 1-2 tbsp of butter and 1-2 tbsp of MCT oil.

There can be a lot of benefits of consuming this, especially when you’re first starting out on keto and intermittent fasting because it may help you fast for longer.

MCT stands for medium-chain triglycerides. These are special fats usually made from coconut oil that turns into ketones pretty fast. This helps you potentially generate ketones as fuel without really changing your diet.

Sometimes, when making bulletproof coffee, people also add ingredients such as:
• Turmeric
• Cinnamon
• Unflavored chocolate powder
• Sea salt
• Chili powder

Benefits of MCT oil in coffee:

1. More physical energy
2. Increased mental clarity
3. Reduced appetite
4. More oxygen
5. Increased fasting
6. Helps with the transition to burning fat

Pretty much all MCT oil companies get their products from the same source. The United States doesn’t grow coconuts, so MCT oil comes from non-US sources. I have an MCT oil product that is from Indonesia.
