What is MCT?
Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) are fatty acids which break down quickly, efficiently fueling brain and body. They are naturally found in coconuts. They support the metabolism, are easily digested and are burned by the body for fuel and energy. Plus the lauric acid found in coconut oil is known for it’s immune benefits.
What sets us apart?
Many CBD companies use non-organic MCT oil, coconut oil, hemp oil or other types of blends of oils–they often combine cheaper palm kernel oil with coconut oil. Some of these oils are produced cheaply using solvents like hexane, which can leave residues.
RESTART doesn’t use harsh chemicals for our extraction process. Our MCT Oil is hexane-free, using only Certified USDA Organic and Non-GMO Project Verified coconuts with complete traceability throughout the process. It’s 100% pure coconut oil, extracted from the most potent part of the coconut.

For those of you who would like to know more about MCT….
…Here is a simple guide to MCT (C8 vs C10 vs C12)
You can get MCTs from coconut oil, or you can buy them in purified form, as MCT oil. There are three main types of MCT – C8, C10, and C12 – and each offers unique benefits.
But what exactly is the difference between C8, C10, and C12 MCTs?
Fat molecules have bodies with long, thin tails that are made of carbon. C8, C10, and C12 MCTs get their names from the number of carbons in their tails (8, 10, and 12).
That difference in tail length gives each MCT specialized benefits.
You’ll find C8 (also called caprylic acid) in coconuts, butter, palm oil, and the milk of mammals. It’s the shortest of the MCTs, which makes it the easiest for your body to break down into fuel.
Benefits of C8:
- Quick, stable energy. When you ingest C8, it almost instantly turns into ketones, which are little bundles of energy that are a powerful alternative to the body’s typical fuel source, glucose. Ketones are more efficient than glucose, creating more energy while using less of the oxygen you breathe in. No surprise that C8 leads to better physical performance. You can feel C8 working – it offers stable energy and mental clarity a few minutes after you ingest it.
- Fights infection. C8 is a powerful antibacterial. In a 2005 study, researchers added C8 to cow’s milk. The C8 killed nearly all the Streptococcus, Staphylococcus, and E. coli bacteria in the milk.
- Reduces gut inflammation. Adding C8 to your diet may suppress interleukin 8, a protein that causes intestinal inflammation. That could mean smoother digestion, and may make C8 especially useful if you’re healing a leaky or sensitive gut.
C10 (also called capric acid) comes from coconut oil, goat’s milk, palm kernel oil, and animal fats like tallow.
Benefits of C10:
- Killing yeast and fungi (including Candida). C10 is a powerful antifungal. In a 2001 study, C10 rapidly destroyed 3 strains of Candida albicans, a yeast that can cause digestive issues when it gets out of control in your gut.
- Boosting immunity. When breastfeeding mothers supplemented with C10-rich foods, the C10’s antimicrobial power was passed on to the nursing infants, boosting their ability to fight off infections and viruses.
C12 (also called lauric acid) makes up about 48% of the fat in coconut oil. You can also find it in milk and palm oil.
Out of the 3 types of MCTs, C12 is the most powerful antibacterial. Your body turns C12 into monolaurin, a potent compound that kills pathogens like measles, herpes simplex, Staph, and E. coli.
Other benefits of C12:
- Weight loss. People who replaced some of the fat in their diet with C12 lost more weight and ate fewer calories than those that ate normally. Swapping out some fat with MCT oil or coconut oil could help you gradually lose weight.
- Fighting acne. A 2009 study concluded that, due to its strong antimicrobial properties, C12 was more effective in the treatment of acne than the leading acne treatment, benzoyl peroxide. But before you start rubbing coconut oil on your face, know that it clogs pores in some people. You may be better off using pure MCT oil for skincare instead.
- High-heat cooking. C12 has a high smoke point. It’s the reason coconut oil is so good for high-heat cooking like sautéing and frying.
THE BOTTOM LINE: C8 VS C10 VS C12
When it comes to the advantages of C8, C10, and C12, each MCT has its own unique benefits. A good option is to choose an MCT oil that contains all three. Which is why RESTART CBD uses an organic MCT oil that includes all three.
One quick note: Coconut oil and palm oil are good sources of MCTs. However, we recommend choosing coconut. The palm industry is one of the leading causes of rainforest destruction. If you are going to get your MCTs from palm oil, look for a certified sustainable source.
