Keto. Bulletproof Coffee. Brain Octane Oil. These all may be terms that you have heard in passing and are slightly familiar with or have never heard before.

It doesn’t matter — if you are someone who is looking for ways to boost your brain power and step up your health and wellness game, then these words are for you.

Here is everything you need to know about brain octane oil.  

  1. What is brain octane oil?

Brain Octane oil is a high-quality oil created to ensure that your brain is suitably fed and is not being affected by any nutritional gaps. The oil was developed in response to the growth of the ketogenic diet as, generally, low-carb diets do not provide the complete spectrum of nutrients that your brain requires due to the elimination of various foods.  

However, no matter what diet you are following, you can benefit from brain octane oil, as everyone needs to concentrate on ensuring their brain is nurtured and protected. Additionally, the oil has several more health benefits that will be explained in more detail below.

  1. What are the ingredients in brain octane oil?

Bulletproof brain octane oil’s central ingredient is MCT (medium chain triglycerides), making it a pure MCT oil.

  1. What are the benefits of brain octane oil?

So now that you have a greater understanding of what, in fact, brain octane oil is, you may be curious about the benefits it provides. In other words, why would you opt to consume it?

The benefits of brain octane oil include:

  • It is a powerful neuroprotector. It protects the brain from degenerative diseases, makes the mind stronger, and can help to prevent damage from a stroke or injury.
  • It has multiple health benefits. It regulates blood sugar, lowers high cholesterol, reduces symptoms connected to inflammatory bowel disease or IBS, Crohn’s Disease and ulcerative colitis, has proven cancer-fighting and tumor-fighting properties, speeds up metabolism, and prevents muscle loss.
  • And, cosmetic benefits. It makes hair and skin feel soft and smooth, reduces signs of aging, reduces skin inflammation, and is a potent antifungal agent.  
  1. How can you incorporate brain octane oil into your diet?

One of the most popular ways to consume brain octane oil is through Bulletproof Coffee. A favorite morning beverage, Bulletproof Coffee consists of only three ingredients: coffee, butter and brain octane oil.

These three ingredients, mixed together, provide a plethora of health benefits and aid you in remaining energized throughout the day — no matter what life throws at you.

Generally, it is recommended that Bulletproof Coffee be consumed as a breakfast replacement meal as it is high in calories, but also ensures that you are beginning the day with a body that is loaded with essential nutrients and antioxidants such as B vitamins, omega-3 fatty acids, beta-carotene, among others.

However, brain octane oil isn’t solely reserved for your coffee; there are plenty of other ways to bring brain octane oil into your diet. For example, you can add it to your tea, smoothies and salad dressings, or as a supplement for any other oil at any time during the day. In fact, brain octane oil can be consumed at any time of the day.

The oil is completely flavorless, odorless, and tasteless so it can bring you significant health benefits without altering the taste of anything else.

Keep in mind that however you choose to consume it, you want to start by only having one teaspoon at a time. After a couple of days, continue building up to a full 1-tablespoon serving. If you start with too much right away, you may find yourself with an upset stomach — and no one wants that!

That being said, it is perfectly safe to have as much brain octane oil as you wish and (more importantly) as you can tolerate. For example, some people consume more than six tablespoons per day, while others are fine with just 1 teaspoon.
