The ketogenic diet is rising the ranks of well-known eating trends because of its effectiveness in weight loss, specifically due to the low-carb, high-fat foods the diet requires. Because of the strictness of the keto ingredients list, many food items become off-limits. So how does MCT Oil Powder play a role in the ketogenic diet? Does it help your body reach the state of ketosis?
Allow us a moment to answer these questions, and more, for a complete look at best practices when integrating MCT powder into your keto diet.
The ketogenic diet gets its name from the metabolic state of ketosis your body enters when the body transforms fat into ketones as an energy source. Because of the sudden decrease in carbohydrate intake, the body begins instead to pull energy from fat, i.e. promoting weight loss.
To put it very simply, on the keto diet your body transitions from using carbs for energy to using fats for energy. With no carbs coming into the body and all the fat being burned, your body quickly begins to lose excess weight.
It’s pretty much a win-win situation. The ketones provide a natural, powerful source of energy for your brain, and the use of fat as energy is a natural solution to weight loss. As if a diet couldn’t look any better, it’s time to add a scoop of BUBS Naturals MCT Oil Powder to the routine.
Our MCT powder allows you to get the best benefits from your keto diet for a number of reasons.
First, it’s totally ketogenic friendly. We craft our MCT Oil Powder from naturally-sourced coconuts farmed in India, where the coconuts are harvested straight from the palm trees without ever being touched by harmful chemicals or preservatives. After virgin-pressing the coconut oil to preserve the highest quantity of nutrients, the MCT oil is sprayed over tapioca starch, the world’s most harmless carrier. This means your daily scoop is nearly 50% MCT oil, ready to be absorbed straight into the liver and transformed into those brain-boosting ketones.
Second, the point of the keto diet is to keep your body operating in the fat-burning state of ketosis. BUBS MCT Oil Powder is a 70/30 blend of capra fatty acids C-08 Caprylic Acid and C-10 Capric Acid, respectively, both of which are known to help in the production of ketones from fat. They also stimulate two appetite-controlling hormones. You will feel fuller longer, and you won’t feel the need to eat because of an energy crash. You’ll have enough ketones in your body to keep you going strong the whole day long!
So why MCT powder? Essentially, it’s like a mini keto diet in-and-of-itself. The MCTs within the powder operate to keep your body in ketosis, stimulate your brain naturally and stop those salty snack cravings due to lack of appetite.
Even though you might feel slightly restricted when it comes to ketogenic creativity, there are actually quite a few ways you can incorporate MCT oil powder into your diet and still reap all the benefits. We know you have enough to keep in mind when committing to the keto diet, since it’s a bit of a Goldilocks situation (not too many carbs, not too little fat, just the right amount of protein, you know?).
Well, our goal was to not only create an effective MCT powder product for you, but to create one which can be added to your diet in any way you choose - hence the lack of overpowering flavor in our blend.
One of our personal favorite ways to add it to our day is simply stirring it into our morning coffee. You can use it in place of, or in addition to creamer, and experience a delicious, healthy cup of AM coffee. Or, toss it into your post-workout smoothie for a little extra energy jolt. Truly, the beverage possibilities are endless.
Or, maybe you like to get crafty in the kitchen. BUBS MCT Oil Powder is soluble in pretty much any mixture, hot or cold. So whether you’re feeling soup, salad or maybe just a fat bomb, you can mix your daily scoop into any keto recipe of your choosing and enjoy great tasting food and great-feeling benefits.
Since there’s nothing in BUBS Naturals MCT Oil Powder besides a little tapioca, a little coconut, and a whole lot of MCTs, incorporating it into your keto diet is one of the best things you can do for your body’s health and energy levels.
