How Much MCT Oil Should I Take To Get Into Ketosis Faster
I prefer to supplement my low carb diet with MCT Oil since it is 100% medium chain triglycerides. They are much better at switching your body from burning sugar to fat because the ingredients in MCT Oil have ingredients that contain only those fats that produce ketones in your liver. So getting into ketosis, is accelerated.
You only need to take 1 tablespoon to kickstart ketosis. You should notice a decrease in your appetite and maybe even an increase in energy after 30 or so minutes. You can take it with or without food.
I take a tablespoon 2-3 times a day. It’s become a habit and have been doing it consistently for a couple of months. It’s made staying in nutritional ketosis easy.
My wife, consistently experiences nausea if she takes MCT Oil without food. She adds 2-3 tablespoons of full fat coconut milk into her coffee with one tablespoon of MCT Oil. It looks like a latte (after being blended) and tastes great. It puts an end to her stomach issues! She uses it everyday before starting work to help with focus.
MCT Oil is tasteless and odorless, and can be consumed right off a spoon, or mixed into a coffee, shake, or smoothie. You can also cook with it or drizzle it onto your favorite foods. Sushi and roasted vegetables are my personal favorites.
Which ever way you decided to supplement with MCT Oil, start with a small serving. It’s rapid digestion may upset your stomach if you take 1 tablespoon initially.
MCT Oil Dosage
I recommend starting with ½-1 teaspoon a day and slowly increase over a period of days or weeks. This way you get the benefits without having stomach problems.
My wife and I use our own product, MCT Edge. It’s made from 100% pure, pharmaceutical grade medium chain triglycerides from sustainably sourced raw materials.
