MITOMIX® Ketone Energy MCT Oil
Medium-chain triglycerides, or MCTs, have become especially popular as the word spreads about the many benefits of nutritional ketosis. This burning of high-quality fats as your primary fuel instead of glucose from carbohydrates produces ketones.
Ketones are the ideal fuel for your mitochondria because they burn cleanly and produce far fewer damaging free radicals or reactive oxygen species (ROS), compared to glucose from carbohydrates.
MCT oil is particularly valuable for creating ketones and maintaining nutritional ketosis.
MCTs bypass normal digestive processes, diffuse across your intestinal membrane and go directly to your liver to be used as a clean-burning fuel for your entire body and brain.
MCT oil is a great way to get extra fat, and because it is completely odorless and tasteless, and actually enhances flavor, you can add it to foods and beverages for extra healthy fat calories.
Because of their rapid conversion to energy, MCTs are an ideal way to help squelch hunger pangs and boost satiety and satisfaction on a ketogenic diet.
Something many people don’t realize about MCTs is the fact that there are many different kinds, depending on their chemical structure or carbon length. Shorter-chained MCTs are more readily converted into ketones.
Most commercial brands of MCT oil are usually 50/50 combinations of C8 and C10 fats. Some contain very little C8 as it is the most expensive MCT fat and is relatively hard to find. Our preference is straight C8 (Caprylic acid), as it converts to ketones far more rapidly than do C10 fats and may be easier on your digestion.
The other thing we like about C8 fats is that unlike other types of fats, C8 fats are water soluble and cross your blood-brain barrier to provide your brain tissue with fuel.*
Our MITOMIX® Ketone Energy MCT Oil is 95% Caprylic Acid (C8) MCT Oil (the other 5% is C10) and:
Contains NO trans fatty acids.
Contains NO genetically engineered ingredients.
You may start with one teaspoon of Ketone Energy, and work up to one or two tablespoons a day. Or add to food or beverages. Many people enjoy adding it to pasta or salads or blending it into their coffee with a pat of raw grass-fed butter.

MITOMIX® Ketogenic Blend
To live a long, active life, you must have healthy cellular mitochondria and genetic material. However, forces that surround you every day, like EMFs, pollution, herbicides, pesticides and countless untested chemicals, challenge both as well as your overall health.
Fortunately, we’ve formulated MITOMIX® Ketogenic Blend, a blend of four plant substances that offers tremendous support for cellular and mitochondrial health based on the most cutting-edge longevity research.*
Pau d’Arco contains a substance called beta-lapachone, which in mice studies increased numbers of intact mitochondria and helped reduce the production of damaging reactive oxygen species (ROS) inside the cells.*
White Willow Bark mimics calorie restriction and in liver cell studies; its major constituent, salicylic acid, boosted numbers of mitochondria as much as three-fold.*
Organic King Trumpet Mushrooms with their abundant beta-glucans, polysaccharides and unique master antioxidant ergothioneine powerfully protect mitochondrial DNA from oxidative damage.*
Organic Hawthorn Berry Fruit supports cardiovascular and mitochondrial health, as your heart is one of your highest energy organs with abundant mitochondria.*
MITOMIX® Ketogenic Blend was designed to support the healthy regeneration and maintenance of your mitochondria in all your cells and to help protect against everyday assaults.*
Available in a convenient powder, MITOMIX® Ketogenic Blend can be simply added to hot water for a soothing tea or added to your favorite drink or smoothie recipe any time of the day. Its smooth flavor tastes much like a mild herbal tea.
