C8 Caprylic Acid Triglyceride (MCT) Oil
MCT oil is found in nature in limited quantities, with the main sources being coconut oil and palm kernel oil. The dietary properties of MCT’s are a result of the fact that it is absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract directly into the portal vein, without the need for digestive enzymes. Therefore, MCT oil is often used to help sufferers of diseases associated with fat absorption impairment. MCT fatty acids are absorbed into the general blood circulation from the small intestine very rapidly (similarly to glucose). When absorbed, they can increase circulatory ketones, which the body can use as an alternative energy source to carbohydrate. The C8 MCTs in Ketoactive energy is 98% C8 isomer, which are optimised for fast absorption.
Inulin, xylitol and acacia gum produce Ketones
Research has shown that both xylitol and acacia gum are converted by gut microbes to Ketones. Not only does the emulsion technology of KETOCreme produce rapid ketones through the absorption of C8 MCT, but it also helps deliver a background level through the bodies gut microflora making it’s own. This helps improve gut health and increases circulatory ketones.
As keto energy gels are often used during exercise or with people on a ketone diet, we added calcium to maintain strong teeth and bones. Calcium also helps with fat metabolism.
