Brain Octane Oil: Seizures, Anti-Aging and Sports Enhancement Results

Brain Octane Oil: Seizures, Anti-Aging and Sports Enhancement Results

I became intrigued with the subject of Brain Octane Oil after using MCT oil for years and then making a switch to Dave Asprey’s Brain Octane oil which I use in my version of Bulletproof coffee*. The changes personally for me were a quicker leaning out, a clear mind and a noticeable difference in how I digested the coffee. Another was a dramatic change in my entire digestion, which is my issue with ongoing healing from celiac disease. If I was feeling all this, is this oil able to help others I know (or may now know), yet with a vastly different anatomy, their own health problems, hormones and diet and lifestyles? I decided to run my own little test/research project for just a month and compiled feedback. You may also be wondering what this has to do with seizures, anti-aging and sports enhancement results, well read on to find out!

I am not a sales lady, I do not work with this company (I wish I did!), and I do not at all get paid for supporting my findings or sharing this information. This simply comes from my willingness and desire to help and share this information with you.

OK, so I chose four people to share some of this Brain Octane oil with. A woman who has been on anti-seizure medication since she was a teenager and is now in her mid-20’s; a pregnant woman; a man in his early 60’s; and an active young man in his mid-20’s with a stressful job, gas troubles and who was trying to drop body fat, but not having any success.

Before I share these amazing results I want to say that I have a history of reactions to sugars and a history of candida, which is basically just an overgrowth of bad bacteria and my body reacting to such. Since being on the Brain Octane, I can handle the sugars very well, and with all my baking and testing recipes it really helps me. I am surprised at how much better my physical reaction to sugar is and my body’s recovery if any slight flare up happens.You can research this on your own and in my Reference section below and read more as to the evidence supporting my own findings personally.

After just 30 days here are the results and feedback from all four and what other steps they may have implemented, all supporting some definite positive changes!  

Woman on anti-seizure medication for nearly 20 years:

I am new to gluten free, and even newer to grain free and the Paleo diet, thanks to Tina’s introduction. I was given the Brain Octane by Tina and I can say that without a doubt I have experienced a dramatic difference in my thinking, my memory and energy, which is saying a lot! I never want to be without this product. I feel I have hope to get off my medication and feel the oil is giving my brain what it has needed and helping any damaging effects possibly heal up. This is some incredible stuff. Thanks Tina. I am happy I was part of the one month research project and your introduction to me of it.

64 year old man:

Wow, this is great stuff – the Brain Octane Oil! I have been a bit of a sugar-aholic and I tried going off of sugars due to already being more Paleo due to some pretty bad side effects. I have been off grains for a good 2 years, but the sugar cravings were still rough. This oil immediately helped me satisfy some of that urge and drive that was pretty unbearable on me physically. I also have been dealing with memory stuff (which I believe is why Tina gave this to me), and I am grateful she shared this with me. I am a Chemistry Major with a degree in Biology and felt I understood things pretty well, but when it all came down to my body I still could not get over the aging effects I would feel, despite a pretty in depth understanding of what I read and apply. Many of those effects are actually gone in just the 30 days and I can say I will not be without this stuff EVER. I intend to help get others on this and as far as a product to add to one’s regime daily for anyone, aging or not – YES! By all means I feel this is a must. I will ensure my entire family gets on this and my grandchildren. Avoiding many effects of aging can be helped with a product like this.

28 year old man trying to drop weight with stressful job:

I have a pretty active live and a bit of stress which comes into play when I have to sit for my work day after day (and late eve after eve) due to my career. I am always yearning to be outdoors. I am pretty much off grains and sugar but I adore Mexican food and heck, chips and salsa can do no wrong. So I indulge now and then. I do not have many poor effects from food and I am fortunate that I have no allergies that I am aware of. I feel healthy. I was given some oil and introduced to the Bulletproof coffee from Tina. I have 1-3 cups of some type of coffee daily yet I think I need more water. I get very tied up in work and will not eat for hours. So, here is what I noticed: Most of all, my ability to focus was greater and there was some energy increase. I also feel that with that one change, I then was able to get a hold of things and organize my life a bit better. I started implementing a daily routine as best I could for my running, rock climbing, surfing, hikes and such and feel pretty darn good. I have dropped weight and fat. I do use a scale and will start measuring as I can tell the pants are starting to fall and the scale is not budging. I feel great and would like to keep taking the Brain Octane and feel the morning ingestion of it is ideal for a great start of the day.

Pregnant woman (she consulted with her doctor before trying the oil):

Wow, this stuff is good. I get so constipated from the pregnancy and was telling Tina about this. There is nothing worse than not being regular, and having a growing baby in there too, oh dear me.

Tina said I could try the Brain Octane as part of her 1 month research and only start with 1 tsp and then work up to maybe a tablespoon. I followed her suggestion and the oil helped me in the digestion and even the weight. My bum is a bit of a concern to me but with the oil it appears that I am dropping fat in the bum and thighs. I am told by many that I look thinner below, which is where I could afford to drop a little “fat” pregnant or not. I feel this oil has helped me FEEL better. I want to keep taking this my entire pregnancy and have decided to also get Dave Asprey and his wife’s Better Baby Book, as Tina suggested. I looked it up and he seems like a pretty savvy guy, up on things and his oil is not a fad. I am so tired of fads! This is something I will take for my health and have in the house for my entire family.

Brain Octane™ Oil may provide the following benefits: ….according to their site this is what it says and MORE!

  • Fuels a starved brain – Brain Octane delivers much needed ketones to fuel a starved brain that can no longer efficiently metabolize glucose for energy.
  • Reduces brain fog – Slaughters the gut yeast, candida, responsible for producing 180+ toxic chemicals in the blood stream.
  • Rebalancing of yeast in gut – Brings candida into balance.
  • Does NOT increase blood cholesterol – Metabolized differently than other types of fat.
  • Makes meals more Bulletproof – Flavorless and easy to add into your diet. Mix into any smoothie, soup, sushi, coffee or most recipes, for more intense mental activity.
  • Easy Storage – No refrigeration required and liquid at room temperature.

I feel Brain Octane Oil is worth looking into, trying and seeing how you do. Again, I am not a sales lady and I do not work with this company and I did not get paid for supporting these findings or sharing this information. I hope you find this helpful.

*The main reason I use “my version” of Bulletproof coffee is to avoid any possibility of dairy, which I do not do well on.

    I’m more concerned with the need to amplify natural ingredients in order to focus cognitive function. Red Bull anyone?
    Coconut oil is fantastic for you; blending it in black coffee is an excellent start to your day if you fancy coffee. But, jacking yourself up with coffee and “Octane” boosters just sounds ridiculous to me. Then again, I never was one to consume copious amounts of Whey Protein, ISO bars, Creatine, NOEXPLODE, aderal, caffeine pills, ephedrine, and other performance enhancing laboratory creations. Seems to me “this guy” and his website are successfully appealing to the naturalist in a clever way that is IMO completely unnecessary.

    Take care of your body and you will be that grandparent racing your grandchildren through the neighborhood on your peddle bikes at 90! Vega Proteins, Coconut goodness, nature, life, and love.

    Thank you.

      Hi John,

      I agree with you on the importance of taking care of one’s body. Thank you for your comment!

    Hi Tina,

    thanks for the great info on this. i want to try this stuff, but also need to go gluten free. i noticed on the bottle label it is “processed in a facility that also processes wheat…”

    me being new to gluten free, is that a concern for cross contamination? i don’t have celiac but need to avoid gluten to see if helps my pain condition. i know you are taking it despite celiac, so i guess traces that could arise from this aren’t a problem then??

    thanks so much!

    1. Tina Turbin

      Hi Jon,

      I don’t see this on MY Brain Octane label anywhere. Please send me the screen shot (via my contact page) of what you are looking at.

      Yes, I avoid cross-contamination and so does Dave Asprey. I am celiac and take this topic to the height of extremity for myself, family and my readers who are sensitive/auto-immune to whatever degree.

      Thanks, Tina

          Hi Kyle,

          I’m not sure if Jon (the one who originally asked the question about the oil being processed in a facility with wheat) ever reached out to the Bulletproof support team about this. You’re welcome to reach out to them though at the following link:

          Please let me know what you find out.

    I have just start with Bulletproof Braine Octane ,but i have tendency to a loose gut and mild diarrhea will this product make it worse? Please advise.

    1. Tina Turbin

      Hi Vivien,

      It probably would make it worse but I don’t have the authority to say so as everyone’s situation is completely unique. I would strongly suggest checking out the bulletproof website: and doing your research.

      I hope this helps!

    Quick question–

    I am not much of a coffee drinker. I usually have Tea. I was thinking about purchasing to put in a shake. Would it still have the same effects?

    Thank you!

    1. Tina Turbin

      Hi Beth,

      What issue(s) are you trying to resolve?

      The caffeine of coffee is higher in most coffee’s over tea but can be varied and the oil will do what it does.

    Thank you for your insight to Bulletproof Brain Octane. I purchased this a good year ago but immediately became hesitant on using it because it said “Ingredients: Coconut and/or Palm Kennel Oil”.

    I thought I was purchasing Coconut Oil and don’t recall ever seeing anything on their sight about the Palm Kennel Oil. Can you share any insight into Palm Kennel Oil?

    Also I am presuming this oil is refined since it is in a liquid form (perhaps I am wrong???). I was also under the impression that refined oils are not as good for us. Any insight on this???

    My bottle does not have an expiration date on it…I am going to contact bulletproof to find out how long it lasts for.

    Thanks again!

  6. Ellen Harloe

    Is Brain Octane manufactured in a wheat free facility or not I’m confused after reading all the post. More importantly did anyone find out if it is made from coconut oil and or Palm Kennel Oil, cant keep us hanging.

    Anxious for info,

    1. Tina Turbin

      Hi Ellen,

      Thank you for your question, however I don’t have the answer on this one as I do not work for Dave Asprey or Bulletproof.

      I had previously mentioned to another reader to contact Bulletproof directly and I recommend that you do so as well. The link to visit is:

      Please let me know what you find out. I’m interested to hear about the feedback and I’m sure other readers are.

      Hi Nick,

      Thanks for your comment. No you don’t have to be following a keto diet to benefit from the oil.
