KTO-C8™ 100 is 100% pure caprylic acid sourced exclusively from coconut oil. Each 1-Tbsp serving provide 14 grams of caprylic acid convenient for adding to coffee or tea, using in shakes and smoothies, or incorporating into recipes as needed. Caprylic acid is a medium chain fatty acid with 8 carbon atoms, hence its chemical shorthand, C8. Medium chain fatty acids (MCFAs) have unique properties that distinguish them from other fatty acids and which give them utility for adding to ketogenic diets as well as for incorporating into other dietary approaches for health reasons.
KTO-C8™ 100 may help support:
- Ketone production without the need for carbohydrate restriction
- Healthy cognitive function and mental clarity
- Neuronal energy generation and general cellular energy
- Modest fat loss
- Achievement of nutritional ketosis
Serving Size:15mL (approximately 1 tablespoon)
Servings Per Container: 32
Ingredients: Caprylic Acid (from coconut oil)
Direction: Mix 15 mL (approx. one Tbsp) in 8-12 ounces of liquid per day, or as directed by your health care practitioner.

MCTs are special fats that the body readily converts into ketones, even when someone is not on a ketogenic diet. Ketones are an energy source that most cells and tissues in the body can use, but which are especially known for fueling the brain.* This may explain the mental clarity and sharp cognition many people report when adding MCT oil to their morning beverage.* MCTs are digested and absorbed differently than other fats. Owing to this unique metabolism, MCTs can elevate ketone levels without the need for carbohydrate restriction,* making KTO-C8™ 100 a potentially beneficial tool for individuals who enjoy the distinct effects of MCTs regardless of the diet they follow. “C8” is the scientific shorthand for caprylic acid, one type of medium chain fatty acid. C8 is metabolized in the brain more efficiently than other types of MCTs and may be more effective for raising ketone levels,* so C8 was chosen as the exclusive type of fat in this oil. The unique properties of MCTs make them more easily used as an energy source, rather than being stored as body fat. When used to replace a portion of other dietary fat, consumption of modest amounts of MCT oil, such as that found in KTO-C8™ 100, may be beneficial as one part of a multifaceted strategy for healthy fat loss.
