I wanted to do a quick video on medium chain triglycerides specifically the different types of fatty acids so you could see the different functions of each one now medium chain triglycerides are types of fats that don’t need help from your gallbladder they can be turned into ketones pretty fast they can be extracted from coconut oil or palm oil and it’s really good for people starting out in ketosis because it will help you reduce your appetite if you’re not a hundred percent in ketosis and a lot of people who need more mental cognitive function like let’s say they’re a student or they’re writing a book they take it to increase brain energy as well as athletes take it as well it will decrease cravings to carbs if your brain is damaged or your heart is damaged whether you have Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s or dementia or you have any type of heart problems so this fat can bypass the damaged pathways and get fuel into the cells a lot more efficiently and the cool thing is that this fat does not get stored as fat it’s used as energy so let’s start with c6 caproic acid it turns into ketones pretty fast so the big problem with this VAT is there’s just not enough of it in to extract from coconut oil but then you have c8 caprylic acid this is the one that people take for quick stable mental energy clarity it’s also a good antibacterial for strep and stef then we get c10 capric acid this is a very powerful antifungal fat very good for Candida albicans just make sure that if you have Candida you also must keep your carbs very low and I’m talking maybe 5% of all of your calories and maybe 10 grams carbs per day then we get to see 12 this is lauric acid this really makes up about 48 to 49 percent of the coconut oil lauric acid is in coconut oil and it’s also in breast milk it’s most powerful antibacterial natural compounds out there it turns into something called mono Lauren which is really good for your immune system its antiviral it’s good for measles herpes which is a virus staff and even eat coli so I just wanted to create this short video to increase your awareness and the different types and what they do most people take these two together so if you wanted to try this always start out with a small amount because it can create some digestive problems I would take maybe a half of a teaspoon and then a full teaspoon and then after a couple days you can take a tablespoon and it should be fine alright thanks for watching so if you want more knowledge on how to create a healthy body subscribe now and get daily notifications

In this video, we’re going to talk about MCT oil—specifically the different types of fatty acids and their different functions.
What’s MCT oil?
MCTs (medium-chain triglycerides) are types of fat that don’t need help from your gallbladder. They can be turned into ketones pretty fast. Medium-chain triglycerides can be extracted from coconut oil or palm oil. MCTs are really good for people starting out in ketosis.
MCT oil benefits:
• Reduce appetite
• Increase brain energy
• Decrease cravings
• Feeds brain/heart
• Doesn’t get stored as fat
Types of MCTs (medium-chain triglycerides):
C6 Caproic –
• Turns to ketones
• Very few available
C8 Caprylic –
• Quick, stable mental energy
• Mental clarity
• Antibacterial (strep, staph)
C10 Capric –
• Powerful anti-fungal (candida)
C12 Lauric –
• Antimicrobial (one of the most powerful)
• Turns into monolaurin (good for measles, herpes, staph, and E. coli)
How to use MCT oil:
Most people take C8 and C10 together. Always start out with a small amount, like maybe 1/2 teaspoon. You can work your way up to a full teaspoon, and then after a few days 1 tablespoon.
