MCT oil is a key ingredient in our Energy Pods with over 7grams of MCT Oil per Energy Pod. This randomized, double-blind placebo-controlled crossover study lasted 6 months and had 20 subjects consume about 25.2g of MCT oil per day. At the end of the study, 80% of the subjects with Alzheimer's disease showed stability or improvement. Longer exposure of 9 months resulted in better results.
During Alzheimer's Disease, our brain's insulin metabolism is impaired and ketones can provide an alternative fuel source.MCTs are a unique type of fat found in various plant and animal sources that rapidly enter the bloodstream and convert to ketone bodies. Additionally, MCTs are not stored in the body as body fat either. Overall, this study shows promising results when it comes to cognitive decline and MCT oil intake.
Though Energy Pods may not have the higher dose in the study, it can contribute towards the dietary intake of MCT oil as specified in the study in a very tasty and palatable way.
