Garden of Life're greatly concerned about deforestation and the Orangutans that live in the forests being harmed. There is no reason to add less expensive oil since 100% coconut oil provides all the benefits MCTs have to offer.

How do MCTs help with fitness?
MCTs, including coconut oil, are burned by the body for energy, or "fuel," instead of being stored as fat. Studies in both men and women have been conducted using MCTs and have shown that MCTs increase energy expenditure and raise the metabolic rate. As part of a healthy diet, MCT oil can also help you feel full for longer periods of time—who doesn't want that?
Why do athletes use MCT Oil?
Looking for that quick burst of energy? MCTs are an especially beneficial supplement for fueling physical exertion, given their high energy density content, rapid rate of absorption and quick metabolic conversion into cellular energy. Additionally, MCTs can be quickly mobilized in the post-exercise recovery phase to rebuild muscles and prevent the breakdown of protein that can occur when the body is putting a maximum demand on the body's energy reserves.
Why MCT Oil for brain health?
Your brain is largely made up of fatty acids, so you need a steady supply from your diet to feel your best, think clearly, perform well at work and stay sharp well into older age. Medium-chain fats are believed to be one of the most easily digested, utilized and protective fatty acids that exists. According to leading Neurologist Dr. Perlmutter, you can boost the availability of ketones for your brain by simply adding coconut oil or MCT oil to your daily regimen. But to make this effective, carb restriction is a must! "MCT oil not only feeds your brain cells, but also improves your gut health—which is largely connected to cognitive functioning thanks to the "gut-brain connection."
Dr. Formulated 100% Organic Coconut MCT Oil—great for athletes, those following a paleo or keto diet and healthy people wanting to support brain health.
Dr. Formulated Brain Health
Today, more than ever, our brain health and cognitive function is paramount to our everyday life. The continual flow of information being fed to our brains is, at times, overwhelming. Our ability to take in huge amounts of data, process it and retain it has never been more prevalent and most likely, that amount of information will continue grow.
According to Dr. David Perlmutter, who is regarded as one of America's top Neurologists, dietary strategies for brain health must include supporting a healthy microbiome with probiotics and prebiotic fibers to ensure a healthy gut lining. He also emphasizes the importance of eating a clean certified organic, GMO-free diet, with no toxins or harmful chemicals. He also encourages the consumption of healthy unprocessed fats which are vital for building and fueling healthy brain cells. These should be consumed along with plenty of fresh organic vegetables which are rich in brain protective antioxidants and other essential brain nutrients. At Garden of Life, they share these dietary philosophies and formulate products using the same guiding principles.
The Dr. Formulated Brain Health product line contains age-specific formulas made with whole-food, clinically studied ingredients to support healthy brain function. The entire line is both Certified USDA Organic and Non-GMO Project Verified ensuring no toxic chemicals or GMOs.
