Brain Octane™ Oil
Brain Octane rapidly metabolizes into ketones, which can provide mental energy without requiring glucose from dietary sugars or carbohydrates. This makes it a good choice for more brain energy, especially during demanding tasks or during Bulletproof® Intermittent Fasting.
Upgraded™ Brain Octane (C-8 MCT) may provide the following benefits:
- Fast mental energy – Brain Octane is quickly converted into mental energy
- Fuel for the brain – Brain Octane delivers ketones, which are metabolized by the brain
- Make meals more Bulletproof – Flavorless and easy to add into diet. Mix into any smoothie, soup, sushi, coffee or most other recipes
- Flavorless and odorless to add to any liquid or food*
- Easy Storage – No refrigeration required and liquid at room temperature
- Replaces far more expensive versions – Upgraded Brain Octane is a fraction of the cost of weaker Caprylic Acid capsules
Unique High Quality Processing
Most caprylic acid comes with an unpleasant goat-like smell and taste, but we use a unique, time consuming, proprietary process to reduce free fatty acids. Upgraded Brain Octane is completely tasteless and odorless – perfect for mixing with foods to bring out their flavors!
Upgraded Brain Octane comes from a combination of two sources, coconut and palm kernels. Because sustainability is Bulletproof, we source Upgraded Brain Octane from 100% sustainable coconut palms, and our palm kernel growers are working to achieve a completely sustainable, certified palm-farming model.
