    MCT/Butyrate Liquid with SunButyrate - 15.6 oz



    Douglas Laboratories MCT/Butyrate Liquid with SunButyrate

    MCT/Butyrate Liquid from Douglas Laboratories combines two unique ingredients to fuel the brain by way of ketone production. Ketones are energy-producing molecules made from fatty acids such as medium-chain trigylcerides (MCT) and butyrate triglycerides. MCT/Butyrate Liquid provides highly concentrated caprylic acid and butyric acid in a pleasant, lemon vanilla-flavored liquid featuring SunButyrate™, a novel ingredient that provides stable, tasty butyrate.


    Each serving (1 Tablespoon (15 ml)) contains:

    More Info.

    Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) are commonly found in natural sources, including butter, coconut and palm oil. They consist of fatty acids with 8-12 carbons, mainly C8 and C10, which are more ketogenic than long-chain triglycerides due to their unique absorption and metabolic characteristics. Aside from conditions that involve energy restriction, the most common way to induce controlled dietary ketosis is with MCTs. The brain cannot use oxidizable fats as an energy source because they cannot readily cross the blood-brain barrier. The water-soluble, lower molecular weight ketone can cross and provide neurons with an efficient energy source. In fact, during ketosis, ketones can serve as ATP substrates to supply as much as 70% of the brain’s energy to meet its metabolic demand. Ketones that cross the blood-brain barrier have been shown to be neuroprotective, as they enhance mitochondrial respiration and promote oxidative defense and NAD+/NADH ratio. In a human intervention study involving eight healthy adults, administration of 30 g MCT to increase ketone concentration resulted in a 9% increase in overall brain energy metabolism, without altering brain glucose consumption. MCT consumption also supports a healthy blood glucose response and increases levels of satiety hormones more than long-chain triglycerides.
