Enjoy the benefits of ghee in a convenient liquid format, combined with MCT Oil.
In Ayurvedic medicine, ghee is known as a Rasayana, a tonic food source that rejuvenates the body, eliminates toxins, and promotes long life.
MCT Oil enhances endurance by priming the body’s energy production. At the same time, MCTs promote the burning of calories and are much less prone to being stored as fat in the body. Also, they enhance the production of ketones, an organic compound that the brain uses for energy. Great to add as fuel and a blood sugar stabilizer to your morning coffee, tea, or latte!
