I never recommended or sold fish oils as it works slightly better then placebo. I got a list of home remedies that fix 90% of people. Turns out 10-20 years later, these oils may mess your heart up!
MCT is coconut? I just thought it was funny that like 2000's when snake oil was the rage, they were pushing long chain. Now everything has moved onto MTC. Is there a difference, or just the new buzzword. BONEBROTH! (making stock/broth is so damn easy)
I'm just intrigued suspending this vile powder in an oil, or powdered MCT (ty for this info)
"MCTs are a perfect example that not all fats are created equal. Because of their shorter length, MCTs are metabolized and transported differently in the body than the more common long-chain fatty acids.
For example, MCTs are easily digested and rapidly absorbed. They are transported directly to the liver, and MCTs are quickly and efficiently burned for energy.† Because they are transported directly to the liver, they bypass adipose (fat) tissue, which makes them less likely to be stored as fat.† What’s more, while dietary fat typically provides 9 calories per gram, MCTs have a lower amount of useable energy, providing only 7 calories per gram.†
What’s more, MCTs are readily converted to ketone bodies, even when someone is not on a ketogenic diet. In other words, MCTs can elevate ketone levels without the need for drastically cutting carbs.
Research has also shown that consumption of the MCT C8 leads to a greater rise in ketone levels than other MCTs, such as C10, or combinations of MCTs, such as you’d find in coconut oil. By way of promoting ketone production, C8 (aka caprylic acid) may help support:†"
That's an add from someone selling the next level MCT...
