As you know we are all about efficient human optimization in movement, medicine and food. Brain Octane is a human optimization tool that we can’t ignore! Read on for more specifics.

Brain Octane at first might sound … scary. With anything brain-related it’s fair to be wary. And the word “octane” elicits images of powerful, fast, revving cars. That can be an overwhelming thought at first. But Brain Octane isn’t scary at all, it’s actually amazing and will do amazing things for you! We commonly use this oil in our yummy Bulletproof coffees but you really can add it in anything: teas, lattes, smoothies, salad dressings- you name it! A little extra brain fuel is only going to do you good.

How Does it Work?

Brain Octane is the most effective type of medium chain triglyceride (MCT) which helps you to lose weight, cure hunger, and rev up your brain (that car analogy wasn’t so bad!). Brain Octane is the shortest MCT found in coconut oil and is converted into ketones. Ketones are brain-powering and fat-burning molecules used an an alternative source of energy to sugars and carbs. These increase your metabolic rate so you feel energized for hours.

So not only is Brain Octane a quick source of energy but it helps you to burn fat and is full of quality fats that don’t weigh you down. It is odourless and tasteless so it is very easy to add to whatever you choose. It’s as easy as that!

There are four different types of MCTs but as mentioned before, Brain Octane is the most effective.It is more than FOUR TIMES as effective as coconut oil since it turns into ketones within minutes making it extremely helpful in suppressing hunger and fuelling your brain.

Palm-Oil Free

Not all MCT products only contain coconut oil. Many (if not most) also contain palm oil and that is not ideal. Nutritionally, it doesn’t make too much of a difference however the palm oil industry has been destroying rainforests to obtain it for a very long time.

It’s important to us that we are not only doing good for our own bodies but that we are conscious about the others (people, animals, plants- ecosystems!) that we are affecting. Palm oil is a hidden substance that we can almost guarantee you use (it is even in some shampoos). The little bit of a difference we can make is ensuring that none of our products contain palm oil, and that includes Brain Octane.


You don’t have to stick to a strict keto diet to take advantage of the benefits Brain Octane has to offer you. It is for anyone who is looking to better their overall health and cognitive function. You can try it out in a cup of our Bulletproof Coffee- caffeinated or decaf! And when you love the results, we’re sure you’ll want to start adding it in to your regular diet.
