What is Bulletproof Upgraded Brain Octane Oil?
Bulletproof brain octane oil has many benefits, it has become quite popular after the advent of the original MCT oil which was XCT oil which is essentially MCT oil (medium chain triglycerides). We will discuss the pros, and cons of using MCT oil in detail later on, for a start, we will just review what it is used for, what the premise is, what bulletproof coffee is and why you should use it.
A 16oz bottle of Brain Octane will set you back about $23.50 at the time of writing. If you happen to subscribe you can get it for 5% less. It is recommended by Dave Asprey that those who suffer form brain fog use this oil in their daily morning coffee with butter to kick-start their day as part of the bulletproof diet. The reason this works ie because your body will work off of ketosis (it will burn fat) and not burn glucose. Your body has a harder time using glucose as a fuel as opposed to fat derived from MCT oil. I can give a bad analogy here: what is easier to burn in real life, gasoline or lumber?
The Overview & Benefits on Brain Function
- It supports energy metabolism at the cell level
- It is 18X more refined or concentrated than regular MCT or XCT oil which means it is the most ketogenic MCT in coconut oil– c8
- It is not stored in the body as fat but rather used as a source of energy very quickly
- The bottle itself is a work of art as it can’t be stored in a regular plastic bottle as it would react, Bulletproof brand is known to take the extra precaution to make sure everything you consume is of the highest standard and thus the process by which it is bottled is very important. So it should be good to know that it is cleaned, extracted and bottled without the use of any chemicals.
- It helps balance yeast in the gut— there are studies that claim that the gut-biome is positively impacted from caprylic fatty acids
- It is not absorbed like Cholesterol in the body– it is a different type of fat and thus it is metabolized differently.
- It is flavorless and odorless so it can be mixed with foods, shakes, soups.
- It can be stored in room temperature making is easy to travel with!
With that simple rundown, It is easy to see why people in the “cognitive fields” or just suffering from attention/focus or energy problems use Brain Octane with ghee or grass fed butter in their coffee in the morning. It helps user achieve peak bran performance for up to 4 hours (just until lunch) at which point after eating you can consume it again. We recommend taking up to 1.5 spoons. Beware however, taking too much too fast leads to long times on the toilet, you need to slowly work up your tolerance.
Where To Buy this Brain Oil?
Remember if you are looking to actually experience the full effects of this diet and coffee, you can not cut corners, especially not on the most important ingredient, which is the brain octane oil, many people have thought substituting it with MCT or regular coconut oil works just as well, it doesn’t! The regular is good for maintaining a proper waist size, and it helps you loose weight — more on that later! this is for cognitive enhancement, it is almost has nootropic capabilities and I would recommend you try this before you try other synthetic supplements.
Also just in case you are unsure, the reason you put butter in the coffee is to keep your body ‘full’ so you don’t consume calories in the AM, less calories in = less weight. The fat is burned off fast after a long night of fasting and a little butter keeps you feeling full, this is why you should buy the best quality butter that will have other benefits as well, remember ghee works just as well.
