Many are curious as to what the difference is in this highly raved about Brain Octane oil and any high MCT oil. Me too! I feel the difference and ran my own Brain Octane experiment along with a few others out of curiosity. Everyone hands down agrees there is a difference. The video below is really interesting and informative, direct from Dave Asprey. But I also want to share with you what I discovered about bulletproof brain octane oil.
Scientifically speaking, when it comes to Bulletproof’s oils here is what I found: their Upgraded MCT is 100% Capric and Caprylic Acid and 6 times stronger than coconut oil (when it comes to providing medium chain triglyceride fatty acids), yet the Brain Octane is 100% Caprylic Acid and 18 times stronger than coconut oil. Well, what does this mean to us?
Caprylic Acid is one of the three fatty acids (along with Capric Acid and Lauric Acid) that are found in coconut oil. It is a potent antifungal that kills Candida cells, as well as restoring our stomach acidity to normal levels. It gets in our intestinal tract and starts killing Candida cells. Like other antifungals, Caprylic Acid works by interfering with the cell walls of the Candida yeast.
Brain Octane is more refined than founder Dave Asprey’s Upgraded™ MCT Oil. He says it is made of 100% Caprylic Acid (C-8). This is a major reason why you would want to use Brain Octane instead of MCT oil. Caprylic Acid rapidly metabolizes into ketones that can be used by the brain for instant energy without breaking down glucose from dietary sugars or carbohydrates. So if we want the highest level of brain performance from our Bulletproof Coffee then I guess he is saying to use the Brain Octane.
He promotes that his Brain Octane also aids in the re-balancing of yeast in your gut and says it will help to bring candida into balance in your system, which aligns with my research above on Caprylic Acid.
Take a look at the results of one of the tests that I did with a group and the amazing things I discovered about Brain Octane.
