MCT Oil Benefits

MCT Oil is one of the fastest sources of clean fuel for body and brain. These fast-absorbing fats are, hands down, one of the best ways to power up your performance or kick start a nutrition program.

  • Provides quick & clean fuel
  • 100% pure coconut sourced
  • Flavorless & odorless
  • Great for athletes
  • Contains no palm oil

A Fitter Fat

Most of the fats we eat are made from what are called long-chain fatty acids (LCTs)—carbon, oxygen, and hydrogen atoms bonded to a long chain of carbons. As the name might imply, long-chain fats are bulky, and take time to be broken down in the body to fuel activity. Medium-chain triglycerides—MCTs—are saturated fats that, due to a shorter chain of carbon atoms, digest much faster, and therefore provide a quicker source of energy.

When MCTs are consumed, they go straight to the liver, where they’re rapidly digested and absorbed, or turned into ketones, which the body can use in place of carbohydrate for fuel.† This fast turnaround makes supplementing with MCTs for the keto dieter what hitting the nitro button is to a street drag racer.

100% Coconut Sourced
Onnit’s MCT is 100% coconut sourced

MCT Oil and Ketosis

MCT (Medium Chain Triglycerides) are a particular 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. If you’re a ketogenic dieter, MCT oil is better than coconut oil for getting into and maintaining ketosis. An American Journal of Clinical Nutrition study determined that caprylic acid is three times more effective at promoting the formation of ketones than capric acid, and six times more than lauric acid.

As a result, taking MCT oil may help to decrease the time it takes to reach ketosis compared to ingestion of LCTs. When people “go keto,” they tend to experience short-term but bothersome side effects, such as low energy and poor mood state. According to a 2018 study, MCT oil may help smooth the transition, reducing the time spent in this window.†

MCT Oil vs. Coconut Oil

MCT oil and coconut oil are often confused as being the same thing, or offering the same benefits, but this is a mistake.

Coconut oil is the richest natural source of MCTs, but MCTs make up only about 54% of its fat content. It contains lauric acid, caprylic acid, and capric acid (types of MCTs), and some LCTs, like unsaturated fats, as well. The trouble is, lauric acid digests and absorbs more slowly than other MCTs, so, despite the abundance of MCTs in coconut oil, it’s NOT considered a great choice for those seeking the benefits of MCTs.

MCT oil is often derived from coconut oil, but with MCT oil, you’re getting a pure source of 100% MCTs, with a higher concentration of fast-digesting caprylic acid†.

Good For Humans, Better For Orangutans

Many MCT oils are refined from palm oil that is harvested from the palm forests that orangutans call home. As their habitat is already endangered, we don’t want to contribute to the problem, and we assume you don’t either.

That’s why Onnit MCT Oil is sourced from 100% coconut oil, sparing the destruction of more palm trees, and helping preserve orangutans’ natural habitat. Do the math…

Coconut-derived MCT oil + happy apes = good health AND good karma

100% Non-GMO Liquid Coconut Oil Derived, No Palm Oil

Suggested Use:

As a dietary supplement, take 1 tablespoon (15 mL) daily. Onnit Pure Premium MCT Oil can be mixed into smoothies, or try it with Onnit Whey Isolate Protein for a certified delicious protein shake. Can also be used as a substitute for conventional oils in salad dressings or unheated sauces. Not recommended for cooking due to its relatively low boiling point. Not recommended for use with Styrofoam or any other foam-based material.

Onnit MCT Oil Ingredients & Use

Onnit MCT Oil
Onnit MCT Oil is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 124.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Changer I’ve used Onnit’s MCT oil for almost 2 years. I mix it with protein shakes, salads, coffee, and smoothies. My Caffeine intake was 1000mg+ a day because I needed energy, but using this MCT product, my caffeine intake is 85mg-180mg a day, and I have so much more energy from the MCT oil. It’s amazing and a powerful fuel source. Highly recommended to optimize your daily performance and energy levels.

Will definitely be getting more of this. AMAZING

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gives you an extra energy boost, morning or night Take it every day with my coffee, there's essentially no taste. It gives a oily texture and appearance in the coffee but doesn't affect the taste of the coffee. I can tell that there's an extra energy boost when I take this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I tried several brands of MCT Oils before I went online searching for independent reviews. I'm so glad I read the published reviews, which led me to this product. I have more energy, stay full longer, have less stomach upset, and actually lose some weight with this particular oil. I won't be trying or buying any other brand. This is my GO TO.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MCT Oil + Coffee = Amazing! I recently bought the Vanilla MCT oil to give it a try after hearing good things about it in a section of the "Own Your Day. Own Your Life" book and the MCT oil has forever changed my morning routine. I have noticed a clearer or cleaner effect on my energy versus the Butter in coffee approach. Thanks ONNIT for introducing this Awesomeness to my life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome!!! This product went beyond my expectations. It was SO good that I told my co-worker it. I'm seeing results that are complimenting with my keto diet. I've been using it in my hot green tea and iced coffee drinks which is ideal because it is odorless and tasteless that it doesn't affect the taste of my drinks. Thank you Onnit for making an ideal product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This oil is awesome! I started using MCT oil about 3 weeks ago to lose weight. I've lost 2.5 lbs. which doesn't sound like a lot, but it wasn't budging before. ADDED BONUS!!! My skin looks REMARKABLE! I was trying to eat only healthy fats, turns out I wasn't eating enough healthy fats. Now the weight is coming off, the skin looks great...what more can I say :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MCT Oil This is a great product. I have added it to my morning cocktail (water, Himalayan sea salt, lemon juice, and MCT oil). Great start to my day. Had a small issue last order, bottle opened / cracked. No worries, Onnit was on it. New bottle on the way the next day. Not only a great product but great customer service. Thanks Onnit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful! I thought this as a gift for my husband and while he is finishing off a generic oil I decided to open this one up and try it myself. I've only used it for a couple days but it's great in virtually anything! Its light, flavorless and hasn't upset my tummy at all! I've had low energy for some time but now I can get all my chores done and I've even have the energy to go walking again too! Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have in morning or pre-game coffee I love using MCT oil in my coffee. Whether it's in the morning for a fuel kick or before a hockey game for more quick energy with my shroom tech.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best MCT Oil!! I have been using this MCT oil from Onnit for three months and it is a great product. Use it in coffee, protein balls, and as cooking oil. Using MCT oil in coffee is a great way to get the energy I need at the start of my day. Unlike coconut oil that floats to the top of the coffee, Onnit’s MCT creates an emulsified coffee. That means the oil is evenly mixed in to the brew, making it great to the last drop!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply excellent. I've been on a Keto diet for a few months. Started using Onnit's MCT oil and have truly reaped the benefits of my strict diet in the past week. Being fat adapted stresses the importance of ingesting high quality fat sources such as this one, as opposed to inferior products that are on the market. Brilliant stuff, and I can rest assured that I'm not abusing mother earth. So that's a bonus. Keep it up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A staple in my diet! I've been using this for 6 years! It's a must have in my smoothies, oatmeal, salads and coffee. I teach fitness classes and sometimes in the mornings I don't have time to make breakfast so I make a loaded coffee with MCT oil, GF Butter, a touch of organic honey and cinnamon. I usually have a long commute and then teach two one hour long classes back to back. I have high energy, mental clarity, positive mood and I'm sustained for 3-4 hours before needing a solid snack or meal. As others have mentioned I also use it as a pre-workout supplement, one table spoon and I'm good to go with amazing boost of energy! However, I recommend having a light snack (few almonds, or a bite or two of a protein bar) before drinking the oil on its own if you have an empty stomach.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! Love this stuff and happy I found Onnit! Just one "complaint"...the bottle desperately needs a new cap! It's impossible to not have some spillage with that terrible little hole it comes out of. My suggested type of cap is attached. Thank you for a great product!!
