Genestra Brands MCT Ketone Energy C8, 450 ml
MCT Ketone Energy provides 14 grams of MCT per tablespoon to support ketone energy metabolism and production. Also known as octanoic acid, caprylic acid is an eight-carbon MCT naturally present in coconut and palm kernel oil. Acute intake of 10 g of caprylic acid has been shown to increase the formation of ketones, which are normally produced by the liver when glucose availability is low, such as during fasting or strenuous exercise. One clinical trial reported that caprylic acid was the most ketogenic MCT when compared to coconut oil, capric acid (C10:0), or a combination of oils. MCT have also been suggested to support energy production and performance during exercise by regulating mitochondrial function and carbohydrate use, and may contribute to a healthy body composition through their role in energy expenditure, fat oxidation and satiety.
