MCT (medium chain triglycerides) were extracted from the coconut. Our immune system is an energy robber, just like our brain. Our little grey cells use up to thirty percent of our total energy expenditure. When our nerves are under-supplied with energy because our immune system chronically combats inflammation, we become weak and grumpy. We feel tired. MCT oil is unique in its effect. There is no other food that can produce ketogenic energy for our nerves, organs, and muscles so quickly. MCT oil balances out energy lows effectively.
