Physician's Brain Boost (MCT oil)
Physician's Brain Boost is an exogenous ketone. Our formula is produced in a pharmaceutical grade facility. According to the literature, ketone bodies which are burned directly in the mitochondria have a myriad of health benefits. It is more efficient at producing ketones for energy than coconut oil. Our product contains 100% Caprylic Acid Triglycerides (C8) derived from coconut/palm kernel oil, and is free of gluten and dairy. Brain Boost is used as an energy source by increasing production of ketone bodies. Ketone bodies have been shown to cross the blood brain barrier, providing energy to the brain. These same ketone bodies depress appetite. Studies have also shown that the efficiency of our mitochondria (the energy producers in every cell) is increased with the consumption of MCT oils such as Brain Boost. With this increase in efficiency the mitochondria can produce more ATP with less oxygen, reducing the production of ROS ( reactive oxygen species)
For patients who are on a medically supervised diet, MCT added to the diet can reduce the "brain fog" associated with carb withdrawal and provide ketones in the blood to jump start a ketogenic diet. Another advantage is that because Brain Boost contains no long chain fatty acids, it cannot be stored as fat. Recent research also is beginning to shed light that ketone bodies in the blood can help to stabilize blood sugar and may be effective in reducing oxidative stress.
Energy boost at the mitochondrial level, helps with ketogenic diets and weight loss. Helps with ADHD and supports brain health.
Mix into smoothies, coffee or tea. Start with half tablespoon and increase as tolerated. MTC oil is non toxic and can be taken to higher levels. GI upset may result - so begin with the one teaspoon.
