Melrose MCT Oil Original is an all-round formula that provides a ‘kick start’ of natural energy. Our MCT oils are derived from organic coconuts sourced from sustainable farms in the Philippines. They’re ideal for those starting out with MCT oils, or following a ketogenic diet or an intermittent fasting regime.
Melrose was one of the founders and leaders in premium daily health oils within Australia back in 1984, and was the first to introduce MCT oil into the Australian market in 1995. Our MCT oils are palm oil free, 100% coconut derived (no nasty additives), and keto and paleo friendly.
Flavour-free, Melrose MCT oils are easy to add to your favourite food or drink. We love them in coffee. Just add a tablespoon to your morning brew to feel the energising effects.
WHAT ARE MCTs?
Medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) are a particular type of dietary fat containing fatty acids between 6 and 12 carbon chains in length. They’re most commonly found in coconut and palm oils.
Most of the dietary fats we eat are long chain fats, which require the gut to break them up into smaller 'packets' for digestion. Medium chain triglycerides bypass the usual absorption process and are instead transported directly to the liver, where they’re converted into immediate fuel (ketones) rather than being stored as fat in the body.
Ketones fuel both the brain and body, giving us an energy boost, aiding mental clarity, and clearing ‘brain fog’. That makes ketones beneficial for people doing high-performance activities (such as sports, studying or demanding jobs) as well as people trying to lose weight or achieve ketosis.
BENEFITS OF MELROSE MCT
- Increases fat burning and will help you get into ketosis
- Improves mental performance and cognition
- Does not cause spikes in blood sugar levels or inflammatory responses like glucose
- Enhances general health, wellbeing, and immunity
- May assist with digestive and gut health
- Helps to decrease appetite and increases satiety for longer
- Can support hormone regulation
- 100% coconut oil free of GMOs and other additives
We choose to use coconut rather than palm oil due to the associated negative ecological effects caused by palm oil plantations. Our MCT oils are free of herbicides and pesticides, sustainably farmed in the Philippines, and bottled in Australia.
WITH CAPRYLIC ACID (C8) AND CAPRIC ACID (C10)
Caprylic acid (C8) converts to ketones within minutes, making it very powerful for suppressing hunger while also fuelling the brain and body with energy. Various studies also indicate that C8 may have antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-fungal properties and can assist with the health of the gut.
Capric acid (C10) has two extra carbons, which means your liver takes longer to break it down into ketones, but you still get the mental and metabolic boost. C10 also has strong antiviral and antimicrobial properties which help combat viruses, bacteria, and yeast infections. This makes it a valuable MCT for supporting all-round wellness.
