MCT Oil vs Coconut Oil


#1

If sticking to protein/fat early in the day, would MCT oil provide any real benefits over coconut oil?


#2

For all intents and purposes, coconut is a form of mct 60%). The price of pure mct oil is quite high in my opinion.


#3

I do like a tsp. of coconut oil in my coffee. Tastes like a Mounds candy bar and the MCTs knock down the jitters.


#4

In general terms, MCT for performance; quality organic coconut oil for health. The former gets a lot of positive feedback from low carbers, of which I’m one. If I were taking carbs pre workout I’d be less inclined to use it. As for coconut oil, well it goes without saying that everyone should be using this stuff. Especially for cooking.
