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.
