BulletProof Upgraded XCT Oil
BulletProof Upgraded XCT Oil:
This is an elite product that helps the body to get into a state of nutritional ketosis. Nutritional ketosis reduces inflammation throughout the body, improves hormonal function, speeds up fat loss and improves brain function.
Utilizing Bulletproof XCT oil is an advanced process that helps someone achieve the performance benefits of ketosis with greater ease. This is a key product I use with all of my clients to help them reduce inflammation and speed up their bodies natural healing abilities.
It also helps to reduce bad intestinal microbes, improve the detoxification processes within the body and reduce hunger and cravings. If you want to improve your life and health, I would highly recommend using this product.
What is BulletProof Upgraded XCT Oil?
Bulletproof XCT oil is a combination of 2 specific medium chain triglycerides (MCTs). MCT’s are unique fatty acids that are found naturally in coconut and palm oils.
The term medium is in reference to the length of the chain of fatty acids. Oils can have short, medium or long chains. Most oils are a combination of short, medium and long chain fatty acids.
Medium chain fatty acids by definition are fatty acids that contain between 6 and 12 carbon chains (1). These include:
- C6 – Caproic Acid
- C8 – Caprylic Acid
- C10 – Capric Acid
- C12 – Lauric Acid
How are MCT’s Metabolized:
MCTs are easily digested and do not require the production and utilization of bile (2). Most fatty acids depend upon bile salt emulsification in order to be metabolized and absorbed. The production of bile is an energy dependent process that takes place in the liver.
Individuals with sluggish livers and gallbladders struggle to produce adequate bile. Other individuals who struggle with malnutrition or malabsorption syndromes can easily absorb and utilize these MCTs.
MCTs have a remarkable ability to stabilize blood sugar and enhance ketone body production. This process makes MCT’s a powerful tool to reduce inflammation, improve metabolism and enhance cognitive function.
Lauric Acid vs Other MCTs:
Coconut oil is commonly marketed as being rich in MCTs as 66% of the fatty acids within a serving of coconut oil are in this category. However, 50% of the fatty acids in coconut oil are the C-12 lauric acid (3).
Lauric acid is a powerful anti-microbial fatty acid but is metabolized more like a long-chain fatty acid than an MCT (4). It depends upon bile and the pancreatic enzyme lipase and does not release into immediate energy the same way that caproic, caprylic and capric acids do.How MCTs Work:
The mitochondria are small organs within your cells that are responsible for producing all the energy needed by your tissues. Fatty acids produce energy in the mitochondria but are dependent upon the L-carnitine compound in order for entry (5).
MCTs provide immediate energy because they are able to cross the double mitochondrial membrane very rapidly and do not require the presence of carnitine (6).
What are Ketones:
The body has two major energy sources, it burns glucose or ketone bodies. The majority of people burn glucose primarily because they are constantly supplying a steady form of sugar, starches and proteins that can be turned into blood sugar. When one either fasts or goes on a low-carb, moderate protein and high fat diet they switch their energy source to fat.
In particular, the fatty acids are broken down into ketone bodies. The three major forms of ketones produced in the body include Acetoacetate, Acetone and Beta-HydroxyButyric acid. These are released into the blood from the liver when insulin levels are low and hepatic liver metabolism is increased (7).
Ketones are unique energy producing molecules made from fatty acids. Our bodies can make them from stored fat or from MCTs. Ketones feed all the cells of the body, but in particular they are a preferred fuel for the brain.
Ketones activate specialized regulatory proteins in the brain called brain derived neurotrophic growth factors (BDNF). BDNF works to repair, protect and enhance the function of the brain cells and the neurological networks (8).
BDNF also stimulates the growth of new, healthy neurons that take the place of older, dying cells. The inability to regulate dead or dying brain cells is a risk factor for neurodegenerative disease processes (9).
BulletProof Upgraded XCT Oil
Upgraded XCT oil is a combination of the 8 carbon chain caprylic and 10 carbon chain capric acid. This formulation has 6 times more caprylic and capric acid in it than coconut oil. This means that it is instant fuel for the brain. It helps to keep ketones up and allows the body to easily switch over from burning sugar to ketones as its primary fuel source.
Upgraded XCT oil is extracted from palm and coconut oil in a time consuming process, making it the most potent XCT on the market. No metal catalysts are used in the manufacturing process, and every batch of our XCT is tested for heavy metals. Upgraded XCT is 100% pure and has a perfect 8-10 carbon saturated fat level.
Medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) work directly in cells to give you an extra boost to maximize your performance. Very little MCT oil is stored as fat because it is used for energy so quickly!

How to Use Upgraded XCT Oil
Upgraded XCT Oil is a supplemental MCT oil that acts as a substitute for some of the usual oil in your diet. It should not be used to replace all of the fat in your diet.
Begin using XCT 1 tablespoon per day and slowly increase over several days. Too much XCT, especially if consumed on an empty stomach, may result in diarrhea or a stomachache. 1-3 tablespoons per day is recommended for optimal health.
The best way to maximize energy is to use Upgraded XCT Oil in organic coffee, organic tea or protein shakes. Mix your XCT oil with grass-fed butter and combine it with organic coffee or tea to gain hours of energy and lose inches off your waistline! It may also be used in smoothies, salad dressings, and many recipes.
Upgraded XCT Oil is packaged in a BPA-free plastic bottle. Upgraded XCT Oil is GMO-free, aflatoxin-free, BSE/TSE-free, and melamine-free. The manufacturer of UpgradedTM XCT Oil is a member of the RSPO (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil).
