Many people wonder if MCT oil will break a fast. I want to answer this question. MCT oil stands for medium-chain triglycerides. It is a type of fat that is usually extracted from palm oil or coconut oil. Coconut oil has MCT oil in it, but when you’re taking MCT oil, you’re getting just medium-chain triglycerides. MCT oil is a type of fat that can turn into ketones very fast. I define breaking a fast as diminishing the results of a fast. Fasting benefits: • Weight loss • Cognitive benefits • Mood benefits • Decreased inflammation • Anti-aging These benefits come from ketones directly as well as turning on or turning off certain genes. For example, fasting may inhibit certain genes like cancer genes. MCT oil will not break a fast very much and only for a very short period of time. This is because MCT oil turns into ketones very fast, and the benefits of ketones are huge. Benefits of ketones: 1. Decreased hunger 2. Better brain energy 3. Easier transition to ketosis 4. Stimulates metabolism 5. Increased energy Dr. Eric Berg DC Bio: Dr. Berg, age 55, is a chiropractor who specializes in Healthy Ketosis & Intermittent Fasting.
