Do More. Crave Less.LEARN MORE
This is your fuel to power brain and body. Brain Octane oil gives your body what it needs—an efficient high-energy fuel. It is totally flavorless and totally satisfying—great on salads, mixed into smoothies, and is a key ingredient in the Bulletproof Coffee recipe.
Brain Octane oil keeps your brain on full blast and your belly slim. It’s a brain-boosting fat, extracted from the most potent part of the coconut, that is converted into brain-fueling, fat-burning ketone energy more efficiently than MCT or coconut oils that contain Lauric Acid.† What’s that mean for you? More brain power and lasting energy with fewer cravings.
The scienceLEARN MORE
Unlike sugars or carbohydrates that spike your blood sugar and can lead to a crash, Brain Octane oil is rapidly absorbed by your body and converted into brain-fueling, fat-burning ketone energy.
What makes ketones so great? Just this: they’re an energy source that can’t be stored as fat, so you get a quick and lasting boost that won’t weigh you down. Brain Octane oil converts into ketones more efficiently than coconut or other MCT oils that have Lauric Acid—and it produces 4x more ketones than coconut oil. Once you’re using ketone energy, it’s easier for your body to burn stored fat—and that means you can focus on what you want to do, not the donut in the breakroom.
Some MCT oils are produced cheaply using solvents like hexane, which can leave residues. Brain Octane is made with zero nasty chemicals. It’s 100% pure coconut oil, cleaned with activated charcoal and refined using only heat, water, and pressure. (Never palm kernel oil, which is connected to destruction of orangutan habitats in southeast Asia.)
Brain Octane oil stops cravings and leaves you focused, with more brain power and lasting energy. That's pretty great. Just like you.
Directions + useLEARN MORE
Brain Octane can be consumed anytime of the day. Blend it into Bulletproof Coffee for breakfast, add it to meals throughout the day and try it before bed to support sound sleep and recovery. Brain Octane is completely flavorless, so substitute it for other oils and see how it enhances other flavors without adding a taste of its own!
Start by having one teaspoon at a time and increase slowly over several days to one or more full servings (1 tablespoon) daily. Too much Brain Octane, especially on an empty stomach, can result in disaster pants (gastric upset).
Besides Bulletproof Coffee, you can also use Brain Octane...
- In tea
- In smoothies
- In salad dressings
- Drizzled over meats and vegetables
- In any food or drink for an amazing boost
- You can cook with Brain Octane up to 320º F
How to make Bulletproof CoffeeLEARN MORE
Keep going strong. The high-energy fats in this recipe work with coffee’s natural caffeine to give you steady, all-day energy.
Start with 8 ounces of filtered water fresh off the boil.
Add 2½ tablespoons of ground coffee from Bulletproof and brew.
Add 1-2 tablespoons of grass-fed unsalted butter or Bulletproof Ghee and 1 serving of Brain Octane® oil. (We suggest starting with just 1 teaspoon of Brain Octane® oil and gradually increasing the amount to 1-2 tablespoons.)
Blend until frothy and enjoy.
Common QuestionsLEARN MORE
Can I put Brain Octane in anything else besides Bulletproof Coffee?
Yes! You can add it to tea, smoothies, salad dressings, roasted vegetables, over meat, over sushi, or in any food and drink for an amazing boost of Bulletproof fats.
How does Brain Octane provide fast energy?
Brain Octane, the shortest MCT found in coconut oil is quickly and efficiently converted into ketone energy, which can be used by the brain, an alternate energy source to carbohydrates and sugars.
Will Brain Octane increase cholesterol?
Brain Octane is metabolized differently than other types of fat and will not lead to an increase in cholesterol.
How much Brain Octane is too much? What dose should I start with?
You can consume as much Brain Octane as you enjoy and tolerate - some people eat 6+ tablespoons and some people prefer 1 teaspoon. We recommend starting with 1 teaspoon and slowly increasing as your body adjusts.
Where is the coconut oil sourced from? Is it environmentally sound?
The coconut source in Brain Octane comes from sustainable, organic coconut plantations across Southeast Asia.
I’m allergic to coconut oil, is there a substitute for Brain Octane?
Brain Octane oil is refined to the point where coconut proteins are no longer present, which is why there isn’t an allergen declaration on the bottle. You should have no problems consuming Brain Octane if you’re allergic to tree nuts.
Does Brain Octane have a taste?
Brain Octane is odorless, tasteless, and easy to add into any diet. Because your tongue has specific fat receptors, Brain Octane will enhance the taste of other foods without affecting their flavor.
What is the cooking threshold for Brain Octane?
Brain Octane is suitable to cook at temperatures under 320°F.
What’s the difference between XCT & Brain Octane?
Brain Octane uses only the most ketogenic part of coconut oil, and as it is so pure most people can use more of it. XCT is great, cost effective alternative to Brain Octane. We recommend both Brain Octane & XCT Oil over other MCT oils as neither contain (C12) Lauric Acid, the cheapest and most abundant MCT in coconut oil that is metabolized differently and produces fewer ketones.
Does Brain Octane need to be refrigerated?
No refrigeration is required. Brain Octane is liquid at room temperature.
