Food For Your Brain
As we age, our brains ability to use its preferred fuel source – sugar – slows. Starting around age 35 the brain no longer takes up glucose efficiently. Thus, people may experience mental fog, slower reactions and a decline in memory retention. However, the brain can also use an alternative fuel – ketones – which are produced by medium chain triglycerides (MCTs). Not surprisingly, most diets typically don’t generate high ketone levels because most of the foods that comprise our diet, such as beef, contain long-chain triglycerides (LCTs) that must be broken down in the gastrointestinal tract. MCTs, unlike LCTs, are used directly by the liver and turned into ketones.
A report in the Neurobiology of Aging confirmed that MCTs offer a much-needed second fuel for the brain. In fact, significant increases in levels of the ketone beta-hydroxybutyrate were observed 90 minutes after consuming MCTs. On cognitive testing, MCTs “facilitated performance.” Higher ketone values were associated with greater improvement in paragraph recall for all participants.1 Barlean's coconut-flavored MCT Swirl delivers 4.5 g of MCTs per serving, providing you with the most delicious "brain food" avialable.†
