My Weekly Recommendation (#4) – MCT Oil
This week’s recommendation will cover something new that I have been adding to my morning routine, MCT oil. MCT stands for Medium Chain-Triglycerides and these fatty oils are easily digested by our bodies. I started adding MCT into my morning cup of coffee for a little extra kick to start my day, but since then I have learned that MCT oil has health benefits I didn’t even know about! These fats are great for fueling your brain in the morning but can also help burn extra fat, strengthen your immune system, and even help reduce Lactate for those of us with extremely active lifestyles. I currently use a vanilla creamer-based oil that goes right into my coffee, but there are many other types and flavors that can be put in (or on) just about anything. Since adding this to my routine, I have 100% noticed more energy as well as increased clarity, which has been great for getting some early morning writing in. So, if you’re looking for an extra pick-me-up in the AM, I strongly suggest looking into adding MCT oil to your diet.
Thanks for reading this weeks rec!
