Thank you so much to those of you that joined us last night for our New Product Launch. If you ordered last night we offered a special bonus, we wanted to thank you for showing up live, which is why we did that.
If you weren’t there, here is our New Product! We couldn’t be more excited to share with you our NEW C8 MCT Oil – no flavour for those that don’t like the taste of coconut oil. There’s no smell either.
It’s a very light oil that can be added to salad, stir fry, smoothies, tea/coffee, etc. There are many different ways to use it. We even add it to our water bottle for an energy boost!
Cook with it on low heat, and you can also drizzle it on a stir fry or buddha bowl after the food is cooked and plated.
MCT oil processes very differently in the body, upon ingestion it is quickly turned into ketones which provide energy, and can immediately provide improved brain function as well which is why we call it brain fuel!
The problem with conventional oil is, much of it is low quality, often rancid found in clear plastic containers. Putting these types of oils in our bodies will cause inflammation which leads to chronic pain and discomfort in many different areas of our bodies. Which is why it’s so important to choose a good quality oil for your household.
This isn’t a supplement, think of it as a replacement for the oil you cook with, bake with or the one that’s already sitting in your cupboard. We often talk about the importance of getting all the macronutrients in each meal.
Think of this as your fat. For example if you don’t have hemp seeds or if you don’t like the taste of avocado, replace those fats with MCT oil!
The MCT oil stands for Medium Chain Triglycerides which can help burn body fat, increase your metabolism, improve brain function as we talked about, increase energy and reduce inflammation in the body, especially those other oils cause the inflammation to begin with.
Good fat burns bad fat, so don’t be afraid of putting good fats in your body!
Not all MCT oil is created equally. With almost any type of product you can find better quality or lesser quality. When it comes to MCT oil there are 4 chains that are abbreviated as C6, C8, C10 and C12.
The chain that you’re looking for is C8, this is the chain with all the health benefits which is tasteless and odorless. This is also the most expensive chain to manufacture, so what do other companies do that know they can get away with a cheaper oil and still label it MCT oil? They cut it with these other oils.
Not exactly the same, but not entirely different. You can look at the olive oil industry where olive oil only needs to be 3% olive oil to label it ‘Olive oil’. The rest of the oil in the container may be cheaper, possibly rancid oils that may include cotton oil, canola oil, grape seed oil, sunflower or safflower oil, etc.
Not all Olive oils are created this way, this is just an example of how the oil industry works.
When it comes to MCT oil some companies use C10 and or a combination of C10 and C12, still label it MCT oil and the consumer things they are getting the same product as they would with a C8 MCT that has all the health benefits one is looking for.
Some companies put a very small amount of C8 in their products just so they can put C8 on the label. And some simply want to create a cheaper MCT oil. There’s nothing wrong with that.
What I’m saying here is, you need to read the labels, as with any product. Not all MCT oils are created equally. In fact many MCT oils are created with Palm Oil. This industry destroys ecosystems and the homes of animals that inhibit their land.
As environmentalists, we choose to avoid any product with palm oil in it and encourage you to do the same. Again you’ll have to read the labels and make sure there isn’t any palm oil listed on the container.
So if you’re headed to Costco or Amazon, understand there’s a good chance their MCT oil is very different from what you’re looking for. We always encourage you to support local. We know first hand how important local support is to us.
And if you’re buying a low quality oil simply to save on price now, understand you’ll pay for it later.
We wish you all the best in your oil choices and hope you choose which is best for you!
