What is MCT Oil?

 

MCT (Medium Chain Triglycerides) oil provides a fast source of clean fuel for the body and brain. With fewer steps to convert into caloric energy than carbohydrates, it is one of the best ways to power up your performance or kick start a nutrition program. MCT oil is used as a carrier oil for Leafy Drops Pure Isolate CBD. When infused creates our powerful wellness Tincture.

Not all MCT Oil are the same

The MCT used is harvested from 100% coconuts, and processed for purity. Unlike most other brands that harvest MCT's from palm oil, (a much cheaper and environmentally taxing source), Leafy Drops sources MCT’s that is pure coconut oil and delivers approximately 30% Lauric Acid, an important form of MCT that acts as a slower burning fuel source. This allows for a longer energy curve. 

Supports those on Ketogenic Diet

MCT’s is a type of beneficial fat that requires minimal action from the liver to convert directly into fuel in the form of ketones. Ketones are one of the brain’s two primary fuel sources, and also a vital source of ATP energy for the body. ATP energy is what allows every muscle to move inside your body. You may have heard people discussing the ketogenic diet, which is a diet designed to help the body run on ketones (from fats) rather than glycogen (from carbohydrates). This state is called ketosis. For anyone on a ketogenic or low carb diet, MCT oil is great.

Good For Humans, Better For Orangutans

 Palm oil is the leading constituent in most MCT oils and is typically harvested from native palm forests. Palm oil contributes to the destruction of some of the last remaining habitats for orangutans. Leafy Drops only uses palm oil free MCT’s. That’s the Leafy Drops way.
