    At my age (70) I started to take MCT oil a few weeks ago and I have noticed improved alertness and energy along with some positive digestive system benefits. Seems like there is a bit of controversy over MCT (like everything else) but I wanted to ask what others here have experienced, especially long term. I only take 4 teaspoons a day, two in the morning and two in the afternoon.

    I thought I was joining a conversation about something akin to Marvel Mystery Oil!

    I'll stay tuned - I just may learn something!

    I used to use coconut oil for cooking, but I use MCT oil now ever since I noticed it in stores. It's a more neutral flavor and it doesn't turn hard in the winter.

    All of the health benefits touted by MCT are just not 100 conclusive in the published studies.
    One study shows a benefit and another shows maybe a very slight to no benefit
    But if it helps you, then take it.

    I can see where it could possibly cause fat build up in the liver after long term use. So there is a slight risk

    I took it for a very short period of about two weeks. I didn't notice any benefits but it was only two weeks. It is used by a lot of keto diets as a way to get a good fat into your diet. I have used regular coconut oil for some cooking at lower temps. It's cheaper than MCT oil and I think it has the same effect.

    I drink it with ghee butter and maple syrup in my coffee every morning.

    A local healthy place calls it Rocket Fuel and I just copied their recipe...
