The Perfect MCT Oil

Is Onnit MCT the perfect MCT Oil? We believe it's as close as you're gonna get. Our MCT is harvested from 100% coconuts, and processed for purity. Unlike most other brands that harvest MCT's from palm oil, (a much cheaper and environmentally taxing source), by using pure coconut oil we also deliver approximately 30% Lauric Acid, an important form of MCT that acts as a slower burning fuel source. This is an excellent complement to the faster burning C8 and C10 chains (38% and 31% respectively), allowing for a longer energy curve and an optimized digestive experience. In addition, Lauric Acid is a raw source material for the production of monolaurin, a potent nutrient not often found in the normal diet. Monolaurin is actually found naturally occurring in human breast milk and is seldom found in the normal diet.

MCT Oil and Ketosis

MCT (Medium Chain Triglycerides) are a particular type of beneficial fat that requires minimal action from the liver to convert directly into fuel in the form of ketones. Ketones are one of the brain’s two primary fuel sources, and also a vital source of ATP energy for the body. ATP energy is what allows every muscle to move inside your body. You may have heard people discussing the ketogenic diet, which is a diet designed to help the body run on ketones (from fats) rather than glycogen (from carbohydrates). This state is called ketosis. For anyone on a ketogenic or low carb diet, MCT oil is pure gold. But you don’t need to go full ‘keto’ to benefit from ketones.

MCT Oil vs. Coconut Oil

Coconut oil contains MCT’s, but only in relatively small quantities. C8 MCT (Caprylic Acid) comprises roughly 6% of coconut oil, and C10 (Capric acid) is usually around 9%. These two forms of MCT are particularly valuable because they take far fewer steps to convert to caloric energy than the other saturated fat forms found in coconut oil. Coconut oil is great, but if you really want to benefit from the fast acting fuel of MCT’s, choosing Onnit MCT oil is the way to go.

Good For Humans, Better For Orangutans

Consuming Onnit MCT oil isn’t just good for humans, it’s good for orangutans! Palm oil, the leading constituent in most MCT oils, is typically harvested from native palm forests, contributing to the destruction of some of the last remaining habitats for orangutans. So enjoy our super premium MCT oil and send a karmic high five to the great red ape.

100% Non-GMO Liquid Coconut Oil Derived, No Palm Oil

As a dietary supplement, take 1 tablespoon (15 mL) 1 to 4 times daily. Onnit Pure Premium MCT Oil can be mixed into smoothies, or try it with Hemp FORCE for a certified delicious protein shake. Can also be used as a substitute for conventional oils in salad dressings or unheated sauces. Not recommended for cooking due to its relatively low boiling point. Not recommended for use with Styrofoam or any other foam-based material.

Onnit MCT Oil Research

All the medium chain fatty acids normally found in coconut oil, including caprylic acid (C-8), capric acid (C-10), and lauric acid (C-12) are known to have the advantage of being easily transported into the mitochondria and therefore, more immediately available for caloric energy.

Unfortunately, most purified MCT oils on the market forget about the longest carbon chain fatty acid and contain far less lauric acid, which means you're losing out on one of the better medium chain fatty acids that are normally found in coconut oil.

The Effect of Lauric Acid on Satiety

Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) and cholecystokinin (CCK) mediate the feedback control of eating behavior. Lauric acid has a major effect on satiety and energy intake via CCK and GLP-1 (two gut hormones involved in satiety) by increasing their concentrations.

These two hormones increase satiety and reduce the desire to eat by slowing gastric emptying so you end up reducing food intake. This is not the case for capric or caprylic acids, and so, is a unique feature of lauric acid. There may also be an added benefit of lauric acid promoting insulin sensitivity via GLP-1, which is known to increase insulin sensitivity in some cell types.
