WHAT IS PURE C8 MCT CREAMER?
Pure C8 MCT Creamer is a coffee creamer designed and tested for ketogenic use. It has these properties:
- Increases blood ketones (Beta-hydroxybutyrate) thanks to the active ingredient (Pure C8 MCT oil)
- Does not raise blood sugar (has zero glycemic impact and often will lower blood sugar.
- Is 100% ketogenic (has been tested to not interfere with ketogenic diets, but support them)
- Made from all natural ingredients - it is primarily made from 3 natural ingredients (Pure C8 MCT, organic Acacia Fibre and purified water).

HOW PURE C8 MCT CREAMER WORKS
Pure C8 MCT Creamer contains no glycemic ingredients. Its main ingredient is the Pure C8 MCT oil.
The C8 MCT converts into ketones via the liver. As a consequence, the cream not only has no glucose response (i.e. it's 100% ketogenic), but it also boosts ketones.
This provides a quick and direct energy source from ketone metabolism and the other various benefits of ketone-bodies (e.g. satiation, steady energy levels).
HOW PURE C8 MCT CREAMER DIFFERS TO OTHER SIMILAR PRODUCTS
Ketosource C8 MCT Creamer is unique, as with other Ketosource products, because it is tested to confirm it increases blood ketones effectively.
Similar products would be Onnit emulsified MCT oil or YourZooki emulsified MCT oil.
Other similar products tend to have one or more of three weaknesses compared to Pure C8 MCT Creamer:
- Lower MCT Quality: Mixed MCT oils are used instead of pure C8 MCT. Since only the C8 MCT boosts ketones, they effectively have diluted the active MCTs in the product.
- Long list of ingredients: Other products contain long and unnecessary lists of ingredients. Pure C8 MCT Creamer contains 4 ingredients in total, and we're aiming to reduce this to 3 main ingredients with further development.
- Not 100% Ketogenic: Sometimes the products contain 'glucose increasing' ingredients such as sucrose or glycerine. Or high levels of protein, that are less relevant to ketogenic diets.
WHO IS PURE C8 MCT CREAMER SUITABLE FOR?
Pure C8 MCT Creamer is suitable for consumption by people in the following situations:
- Ketogenic or low-carb dieters who want to make drinks that are 100% ketogenic compliant that they can use when at work or traveling.
- People who are new to the ketogenic diet and want to increase ketosis or ease their way into ketosis, or an easy way to add more fats to their diet.
- People looking to increase cognitive performance through ketone fuelling and metabolism (note: aiming for 1.5 to 3 mmol is considered a good blood ketone range to aim for).
- People looking to increase physical performance in the gym, in competitions and as professional athletes through ketone fuelling and metabolism.
