What is MCT?
‘MCT’ stands for ‘medium-chain triglycerides.’ MCTs contain fatty acids that naturally occur in coconut oil, goat milk and breast milk. The best and most efficient is C8, because it is easily broken down. C8 is also the MCT that coconuts have the least of – actually only 7% of their MCT content. Asta MCT contains more than 98% pure C8 MCT. Your body turns MCTs into tiny molecules also known as ketones, and Asta MCT gives your 4 times more ketogenic energy than standard coconut oil. With Asta MCT you can expect more brain energy, more overall energy and a general all-natural health booster than with a generic low-quality MCT.

In your body, Asta MCT is turned into ketones within minutes. Ketones gives your neutrons immediate access to energy. You can really feel how your brain gets turned on. Brain fog and lack of concentration get taken over by 100% altertness and focus. Get fit for fight like never before. You can use Asta MCT all day, but it’s especially good when high performance is required – for instance when going to the gym.
Asta MCT contains as much as 2 mg of astaxanthin per serving. Astaxanthin is one of the most potent antioxidants available. Astaxanthin, which is extracted from algae and has a strong red color, is actually what gives salmon its orange-red color.
Astaxanthin increases the performance of your mitochondria. Mitocondria are best described as microscopic powerhouses of energy residing inside your cells. They produce energy in the form of ATP, which is what cells use as an energy source for all of your body functions. Anything that can boost your mitochondria implies a boost of energy all the way down to the cellular level. Hence, a supplement with astaxanthin will improve every singe function in your body – especially your physical performance.
Astaxanthin is backed by science. Studies show that the antioxidant can make you stronger: the performance on a Smith machine was improved by 300% over 6 months by taking astaxanthin. Other studies show that astaxanthin reduces fatigue and muscle damages during intense workout sessions. Astaxanthin also allows you to reach your true limits by reducing the accumulation of lactic acid in your muscles so you can perform even better and longer.
