MCT oil is not just a superstar when it comes to brain health. Those potent antifungal and antimicrobial fatty acids can also do wonders for your gut microbes and keeping your gut flora in good check.
We have spoken a lot about the health benefits of MCT oil and C8 MCT oil for the brain. Brain power, brain octane, and fuel for the brain have become popular terms in the world of good oils.
Your gut flora (microbiome), your diet, and the strength of your intestinal lining, all determine the health of your gut. The gut however is so interconnected to the workings of the brain, and vice versa, that one cannot thrive without the other.
Scientists have started taking a much closer look at the gut microbiome and its connection to almost everything in the body. A gut that’s out of balance can lead to all kinds of serious diseases. It’s actually tough to find a condition that’s not connected to gut health in some way.
A troubled intestine can also send signals to the brain, just as a troubled brain can send signals to the gut. Therefore, a person's stomach or intestinal distress can be the cause or the product of anxiety, stress, or depression. That's because the brain and the gastrointestinal (GI) system are intimately connected.
C8 Coconut MCT Oil is derived from coconut oil and made up of just one ingredient, caprylic acid. A pure, potent, anti-microbial fatty acid.
Gut health refers to the balance of microorganisms that live in the digestive tract. These bacteria, yeasts, and viruses — of which there are around 100 trillion — are also called the "gut microbiome" or "gut flora." Many microbes are beneficial for human health, and some are even essential.
Gut microbiome are also involved in many other important processes that extend beyond your gut, including your metabolism, body weight, and immune regulation, as well as your brain functions and mood.
You can feel C8 working - it offers mental clarity and stable energy a few minutes after you drink it.
When you ingest C8, it almost instantly turns into ketones, little bundles of energy that are a powerful alternative to the body’s typical fuel source, glucose. Ketones are processed more efficiently than glucose therefore creating more energy, while using less of the oxygen that you breathe in.
This is why C8 leads to better physical performance and overall wellbeing.
There are a couple other benefits to C8, too:
Adding C8 to your diet is known to suppress interleukin 8, a protein that causes intestinal inflammation, making it particularly useful for inflammation related gut concerns.
That could mean smoother digestion making C8 especially useful for digestive health.
Keeping your gut in balance is a delicate dance of lifestyle and nutritional health, and there is a lot that can tilt it in the wrong direction. Adding some good oils such as MCT’s found in and derived from coconut oil could very well be a simple, and effective way to keep things in check and in good balance for both the brain and the gut.
