The MCT Oil Keto Diet Connection: Do MCTs Raise Ketones?

Mike’s new to the keto diet, so he wonders if MCT Oil can raise blood ketones when when in a fasted, low-calorie, slightly-ketogenic state.

The answer is YES — and once you understand the pathway, it’s easy to see why! (Realize I’m not a doctor or expert in this field so I’m learning too)

The biggest drawback is that sometimes MCT can jack up your stomach. This happens about 20% of the time for me if using a whole tablespoon. 5-8g may fare better rather than 14g in a Tbsp.

This creates all of our Acetyl-CoA molecules needed to make ketogenesis happen!

This is by far the best video talking about these reactions for ketogenesis. You might as well learn what you’re body’s trying to do here!
