Sourcing & FAQ
Brain Octane is orangutan friendly. Carefully extracted from 100% pure coconut oil, not palm oil, to protect wild orangutan habitat in Southeast Asia.
Not just coconut or MCT oil – Brain Octane is made with only C8 MCTs, which metabolize more efficiently into ketone energy than more common oils with C10 and C12 (Lauric Acid) MCTs. Your body cannot store ketones from Brain Octane as fat; instead it is excreted through your lungs (breath), or kidneys (urine).
Brain Octane undergoes our special triple distillation process with only water, heat and pressure to create the cleanest product possible – free from harsh chemicals and solvents.
Can I put Brain Octane in anything else besides Bulletproof Coffee?
Yes! You can add it to tea, smoothies, salad dressings, roasted vegetables, over meat, over sushi, or in any food and drink for an amazing boost of Bulletproof fats.
How does Brain Octane provide fast energy?
Brain Octane, the shortest of the MCT’s, converts into ketone energy, which can be used by the brain, faster than other fats or oils.
Besides energy, what other benefits does Brain Octane have?
Brain Octane can help re-balance yeast in your gut. Studies show that there are fungicidal effects of C8 MCTs, which are helpful in balancing Candida in the gut.
Will Brain Octane increase cholesterol?
Brain Octane is metabolized differently than other types of fat and will not lead to an increase in cholesterol.
How much Brain Octane is too much? What dose should I start with?
You can consume as much Brain Octane as you enjoy and tolerate – some people eat 6+ tablespoons and some people prefer 1 teaspoon. We recommend starting with 1 teaspoon and slowly increasing as your body adjusts.
Where is the coconut oil sourced from? Is it environmentally sound?
The coconut source in Brain Octane comes from sustainable, organic coconut plantations across Southeast Asia.
Does the ketogenic effectiveness of the product change due to 100% coconut oil?
No, Brain Octane sourced from coconut or palm kernel oil is biologically identical and is used by your body in exactly the same way.
I’m allergic to coconut oil, is there a substitute for MCT?
Brain Octane is refined to the point where coconut proteins are no longer present, which is why there isn’t an allergen declaration on the bottle. You should have no problems consuming Brain Octane if you’re allergic to tree nuts.
Does Brain Octane have a taste?
Brain Octane is odorless, tasteless, and easy to add into any diet. Because your tongue has specific fat receptors, Brain Octane will enhance the taste of other foods without affecting their flavor.
What is the cooking threshold for Brain Octane?
Brain Octane is suitable to cook at temperatures under 320° F.
What’s the difference between XCT & Brain Octane?
Brain Octane uses only the most ketogenic part of coconut oil, and as it is so pure most people can use more of it. XCT is great, cost effective alternative to Brain Octane. We recommend both Brain Octane & XCT Oil over other MCT oils as neither contain (C12) Lauric Acid, the cheapest and most abundant MCT in coconut oil that is metabolized differently and produces fewer ketones.
Does Brain Octane need to be refrigerated?
No refrigeration is required. Brain Octane is liquid at room temperature.
What are the bottles made of:
XCT Oil and Brain Octane are packaged in fully recyclable, BPA-free plastic bottles. These bottles do not release any chemicals into the oil and the oil is only touching other oil molecules as a single molecule of oil bonds to the inner wall of the bottle. Please help the environment by recycling your used bottles.
