MCT oil is widely consumed around the world because of its many health benefits. These include supporting healthy digestive, cognitive and cardiovascular functions, among others. An excellent source of healthy fats, MCT oil is also incredibly easy for the body to absorb and convert into fuel for your cells.
The Health Ranger Store is here to help you boost your daily intake of essential fats, which is why we're bringing back Chief Originals® 100% MCT Oil (95% C8 MCT Oil). Sourced from the finest coconuts, our top-quality MCT oil contains high amounts of Caprylic Acid (C8) that can support optimal health.
Chief Originals® 100% MCT Oil (95% C8 MCT Oil) is vegan, non-GMO, non-China and certified Kosher. It also contains no gluten and is thoroughly lab tested for glyphosate, heavy metals and microbiology.
All fats are made up of chains of carbon atoms. Short-chain fatty acids are only up to five carbon atoms long, while long-chain fatty acids are 13 to 21 carbon atoms long. Medium-chain fatty acids (MCTs), on the other hand, are composed of six to 12 carbon atoms. The unique properties of MCTs allow them to support healthy digestive, cardiovascular and cognitive functions, as well as healthy energy levels.
MCTs are the ideal length for optimal absorption and metabolism. Research shows that they easily bypass the digestive process fats normally go through and go straight to your liver, where they are converted into an instant source of energy for your cells. Thanks to its high MCT content, MCT oil can support healthy digestion and energy levels, uplift your mood and even help you achieve sensible weight management goals when combined with a healthy diet and regular exercise.
Chief Originals® 100% MCT Oil (95% C8 MCT Oil) delivers more MCTs than regular coconut oil, making it the most efficient source of medium-chain fats for supporting overall health.
All of these healthy fats have their own health-promoting properties, but the most beneficial among them is caprylic acid (C8). Caprylic acid is one of the shortest of all MCTs, so it is easy for the body to break down into fuel. In fact, it only takes three steps to turn caprylic acid into cellular energy. This also means that you’ll experience the positive benefits of this unique fatty acid faster than any other healthy fat. Additionally, caprylic acid is considered the premier and most efficient type of MCT you can add to your diet.
Also known as octanoic acid, caprylic acid can support healthy digestion and help you maintain healthy cholesterol levels that are already within the normal range. Furthermore, regular consumption of caprylic acid can support the healthy functioning of your immune system.
Caprylic acid can be found in many food sources, such as coconut oil, palm fruit oil, peanut butter, raw cow’s milk and even human breast milk. However, the richest and most efficient source of caprylic acid is MCT oil. A single tablespoon of Chief Originals® 100% MCT Oil (95% C8 MCT Oil) delivers 14 grams of pure caprylic acid (C8), as well as trace amounts of caproic acid (C6) and capric acid (C10).
An incredible brain food, MCT oil can serve as an efficient source of fuel for your brain. An article that appeared in the American Journal of Alzheimer's Disease & Other Dementias found that consuming MCT oil regularly can support optimal cognitive functions, especially memory and learning.
MCT oil is much easier to digest and absorb than other types of fat. According to a study published in the Ghana Medical Journal, supplementing with MCT oil can also support a well-balanced gut flora and help you maintain healthy digestive function.
According to a study published in the journal PLoS One, the healthy fats in MCT oil are an excellent source of fuel for mitochondria, your cells' powerhouses. Your body can quickly absorb these potent MCTs and convert them into instant energy to support endurance workouts.

Other ways to incorporate MCT oil into your daily routine**
MCT Oil is a great addition to a well-balanced diet as it contains healthy fats that can support your overall health and well-being. It is especially useful when added to energy-supporting snacks and beverages. MCT oil is also versatile enough to complement a wide variety of diets, including low-carb and ketogenic diets.
The next time you need a quick pick-me-up, simply pour a few drops of MCT oil into your morning coffee, breakfast smoothie or any beverage of your choice. MCT oil also makes an excellent ingredient for your homemade salad dressings. Since it has a high smoke point, you can also use MCT oil as a cooking oil.
Once your body has grown accustomed to small amounts of MCT oil, you can start adding a tablespoon or two to your favorite post-workout smoothies, shakes, sauces, soups, baked goods, yogurts and other recipes.
You can make the most out of supplementing with caprylic acid by taking it alongside immune-supporting foods, such as oregano oil, omega-3-rich supplements and probiotic foods.
Because of the growing popularity of MCT oil, many manufacturers have begun selling synthetic oils that are misleadingly labeled. Many MCT oil products contain preservatives, sweeteners and other artificial substances that can undermine the potential health benefits MCTs provide. Other MCT oil products are also derived from palm kernel oil, which is cheaper but is less healthy and not sustainable. Avoid making the mistake of buying synthetic oils or inferior, diluted products by purchasing lab-verified MCT oil from sources you can trust.
