New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with Use MCT Oil to Improve Your Sleep?
so recently I had this idea that I was gonna try some MCT oil before I went to bec and normally you would take MCT oil in the morning to get more energy or even before you workout to actually run your body and ketones but i thought about sleep apnea sleep apnea is a condition of a lack of oxygen which interferes with your ability to sleep and I do know there is a huge connection between breathing air getting oxygen and actually sleeping for some reason we don’t sleep well when we don’t get oxygen ketones give you oxygen give you more oxygen than glucose also you’re getting less co2 carbon dioxide now what happens with the brain is this it prefers ketones if there’s enough ketones in your blood if you’re just starting out in ketosis and you’re not necessarily doing in a minute fasting or we just want to spike more ketones in your brain you can actually take MCT oil to do that because it converts to ketones very very efficiently and it doesn’t even use the bile and some of the digestive enzymes from the pancreas just kind of gets absorbed and it turns into ketones very very fast so by taking a small amount of MCT oil medium chain triglycerides I’m talking about starting off with a half of a teaspoon because it can create some digestive issues so start small and maybe kind of work your way up to maybe one teaspoon over time but try this right before you go to bed I’ve been doing it for the last week and it does definitely increase the quality of sleep for sure the other cool thing about ketones in general there are certain parts of the brain that run on ketones and other parts that don’t well just so happens that the pineal gland runs on ketones and that’s where you have the melatonin that helps you sleep as well the hypothalamus and the pituitary also loved ketones now in the hypothalamus you have all these little tiny nuclei their little regulatory cells that are combined the autonomic nervous system with the endocrine system and there’s one little nuclei called the super transmat ik nuclei that’s involved in the sleep circadian waves and that’s basically your internal clock if you support it with the right fuel you could potentially enhance your sleep and one last point about the brain there is a lot of confusions on the brain until fairly recently it wasn’t known that your brain could actually run on ketones it was thought that the brain could only run on glucose so sometimes when you talk to your doctor for example they might still not even have this new information that your brain can run into ketones very efficiently the brain can’t run on fatty acids though other parts of your body can run on fatty acids but because the brain is composed of a lot of fatty acids that would be very dangerous if you’re gonna run on your own tissue so that’s kind of a protective mechanism but let me know in the comments below if it actually improves your sleeping if you’re liking this content please subscribe now and I will actually keep you updated on future videos

In this video, we’re going to talk about MCT oil and sleep. There are a ton of great benefits of MCT oil, but today I want to share with you how to use MCT oil to improve sleep quality.
What is MCT oil? – MCT oil is medium-chain triglycerides that convert to ketones very efficiently.
There is a huge connection between getting oxygen and sleeping. We don’t sleep well if we aren’t getting enough oxygen. Ketones actually give you oxygen and less CO2.
The brain prefers ketones if there are enough ketones in your blood. If you’re just starting out on ketosis or you want to spike ketones, you can take MCT oil to do that. Certain parts of the brain that promote sleep can actually run on ketones.
When you take MCT oil, you want to start with a small amount and work your way up to more to avoid digestive issues.
How to use MCT oil for sleep:
• Start off taking 1/2 teaspoon of MCT oil before bed and slowly increase to 1 teaspoon if needed.
