Rainforest Herbs Body Hack MCT Oil is comprised of Caprylic and Capric medium chain triglycerides (MCT’s) extracted from Coconut Oil. Fatty acids are categorized by how many carbons they have. MCT’s have between 6–12 carbons and long-chain fats have between 13 to 21. The lower the number the easier they are to digest with the optimal MCT’s for fast energy and ketogenesis being caprylic (C8) and capric (C10) acids. These fatty acids contain unique property that enables them to be quickly converted to energy in the body. They are digested differently from the long chain fatty acids that make up the majority of our dietary fat intake. Long chain fats (all our regular supermarket vegetable oils) must be broken down, combined with a protein, shuttled through the lymph system to the liver, broken down further into free fatty acids, which are then either stored as body fat or converted to glucose and used as fuel. MCT’s however enter the blood directly and are sent to the liver where they are used immediately for energy, very similar to normal carbohydrates but with some added unique benefits. Firstly, they raise thermogenisis (by boosting metabolism) and also reduce hunger and appetite and as such are beneficial for athletes, bodybuilders and all those wishing to promote healthy metabolism and weight loss. The other benefits of MCTs are to provide a fuel source during endurance sports events, therefore enhancing endurance by sparing glycogen, and prolonging the availability of important stores of carbohydrate. Furthermore, MCT’s enhance ATP, the energy currency of our cells.
Add 1 teaspoon Body Hack MCT Oil to your morning bulletproof coffee, smoothies, juices, protein shakes and energy drinks. MCT Oil can also be used as a substitute for conventional oils in salad dressings and sauces for cooking as a source of beneficial fatty acids.
Notice the energy difference in your gym workouts or if you get tired in the afternoons, add a spoon of Body Hack MCT Oil to provide an energy boost to help carry you through. Besides increasing energy, fat burning and weight loss, there are other important benefits from boosting your metabolic rate: it helps protect you from illness and speeds healing. When metabolism is increased, cells function at a higher rate of efficiency and heal injuries quicker, old and diseased cells are replaced faster, and new cells are generated at an increased rate. Even the immune system functions better.
So which is better Coconut Oil or MCT Oil?
The answer: both are important but it depends on what you want to achieve. Body Hack MCT Oil contains 7x more of the MCT’s Caprylic and Capric Acid that provide the thermogenic body hack that promotes fast energy and promote ketogenic fat burning.

How is MCT Oil produced? Our purest quality MCT Oil is a high technology product produced by esterifying glycerol with mixtures of Caprylic (C:8) and Capric (C:10) fatty acids. These MCT’s are fractionated from 100% coconut oil in a technique that was developed over fifty years ago when it was discovered as an energy source for patients with fat malabsorption syndrome and has entered into numerous medical nutritional products since then. Because of its high purity it has remarkable oxidative stability with a long shelf life.
What’s a body hack? Body hacking or biohacking incorporates physical or mental tweaks designed to improve human performance in the shortest time and with optimum effect. Much of what we’ve been taught about cholesterol, triglycerides, saturated fats and low fat diets for the past 50 years has been based on faulty science and has contributed greatly to global obesity and the epidemic of metabolic disease. Body Hack MCT Oil is part of this movement towards consuming more healthy fats and much less refined carbohydrates and starches.
