Mercola Announced as 2018 Clean Choice Award Winner



Mercola’s Ketone Energy MCT Oil named 2018 Clean Choice Award Winner
by Clean Eating Magazine

Hoffman Estates, IL February 22, 2018 – Dr. Joseph Mercola, founder of, is always on the leading edge of research and development when it comes to producing high-quality health products. As the result of his efforts and ongoing quest to help people understand and implement a cyclical ketogenic meal plan, Mercola’s Ketone Energy MCT Oil has received Clean Eating Magazine’s 2018 Clean Choice Award.

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 very popular as knowledge grows about the many benefits of ketosis.

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

While most researchers have only 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.” 

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 blending it into coffee with a pat of raw, grass fed butter to create the perfect ketogenic pick-me-up.
