What the heck is MCT oil and why would I put it in my coffee?

What are the benefits of MCT oil?

For some, adding anything to coffee is complete blasphemy — cream and sugar? Get outta here. Broccoli powder? Are you KIDDING ME? I like my coffee as black and dark as the black hole where my heart should be. 

For those looking for even more of an energy boost to their morning fix, MCT oil might do the trick. But what exactly is MCT oil? MCT oil is a man-made extraction of medium-chain triglycerides (where the acronym is from) from natural sources like palm kernel oil and coconut oil. 

MCT oil is clear, odorless, and flavorless, so if you add it into your coffee, it doesn't add any extra flavor. When you mix MCT oil into your diet, it's been shown to: 

  • Increase metabolic rate
  • Suppress appetite
  • Burn calories
  • Enhance endurance during exercise
  • Aid in weight-loss and nutrition

If you're looking for an extra boost in the morning with some crazy health benefits, give MCT oil a try!
