Mercola Introduces Ketone Energy MCT Oil



Mercola expands his mitochondrial health focus with this newest cellular energy product

Hoffman Estates, IL February 21, 2017 – In his ongoing quest to help people optimize their cellular health, Dr. Joseph Mercola has added Ketone Energy MCT Oil to his ever-expanding mitochondrial health product line.

Crucial for cellular health, mitochondrial function and energy production, nutritional ketosis allows the body to shift over to burning fat for fuel instead of carbohydrates. Medium-chain triglycerides, or MCTs, have become especially popular as the word spreads about the many benefits of ketosis.

MCT oil is a particularly valuable aid for attaining and maintaining nutritional ketosis. By promoting the production of ketones, Ketone Energy provides mitochondria with their ideal fuel. Ketones burn cleanly and produce far fewer damaging free radicals or reactive oxygen species, compared to glucose from carbohydrates.

While most researchers have just scratched the surface of this important area of health and wellness, Mercola continues to develop products that place him at the forefront of addressing mitochondrial health.

“Nearly everyone needs to burn high-quality fats instead of carbs,” Mercola said. “When you use the right kind of MCT oil, I’m convinced that you can reap profound benefits. I use it daily.” 

Dr. Mercola’s Ketone Energy MCT Oil stands apart from other MCT Oils in several ways:

  • Contains 95 percent Caprylic Acid (C8 MCT oil), the most effective MCT fatty acid (most commercial brands are combinations of C8 with other fatty acids)
  • Its MCTs bypass normal digestive processes, diffuse across the intestinal membrane and go directly to the liver to be used as a clean-burning fuel for the entire body and brain
  • Offers a great way to get extra fat into the diet, and because it is odorless and tasteless and actually enhances flavor, it can be added to foods and beverages for extra fat calories
  • Contains no trans fatty acids and NO genetically engineered ingredients

MCT Oil is becoming one the fastest growing trends for health and well-being. Ketone Energy MCT OIL can be added to food or beverages like pasta, salads, or even coffee along with a pat of raw, grass-fed butter to create the perfect ketogenic pick-me-up.
