Dr. Mary Newport’s MCT//143
Dr. Mary Newport developed MCT 143 formula for her husband, who suffered from Alzheimer’s disease. Love is beautiful, isn’t it?
Its design supports healthy brain function while also acting as a fat loss and intermittent fasting aid.
In MCT//143, organic virgin coconut oil and coconut-derived MCT oil come together to provide a steady stream of ketones when taken several times per day. Phosphatidylcholine (PC) is a major component of cell membranes and is vital to brain and whole body energy regulation. – Dr. Mary Newport
How Does MCT 143 Work?
MCT 143 contains medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) – derived from the heart of the coconut. In studies, these have been shown to increase ketone production.
It’s worth making a distinction here. This isn’t the same as taking BHB (i.e. ketones) directly into the body. MCT’s naturally encourage the body to create them.
In doing so, fat is then burned for energy instead of carbs—which is how it aids in fat loss. It also keeps you very full feeling, so you eat smaller meals.
There’s also evidence that these MCTs can increase energy expenditure and improve brain function, and it certainly does for me.
I use MCT in my coffee each and every morning and have for over two years. I love the brain energy and ease of intermittent fasting that MCT provides. I get most of my work done in the morning when my brain is lit up with MCT as a fuel source.
I usually don’t eat my first meal until 1pm each day.
MCT 143 Ingredients
The main constituent of MCT 143 are very specific fatty chains from organic coconut oil – the source of MCTs. A very carefully crafted combination of MCT’s C6-C12, and not just stuffed with Lauric Acid as its main ingredient like a lot of brands on the market .
MCT’s you find on grocery store shelves are NOT created equally! Always read the labels…I’ve tried a bunch and nothing comes close to the MCT 143. I’m a lifer!
Its potency is increased by being fortified with extra MCTs, extra virgin organic coconut oil, and phosphatidylcholine.
Benefits of MCT’s
- MCT’s (Caprylic C8 and and Capric Acid C10) can pass through the blood brain barrier to be used as immediate fuel and brain energy. This is why your brain lights up on MCT’s and you feel energized!
- Lauric Acid – has super powers! Kills/suppresses growth of unhealthy bacteria including fungi, candida, acne and viruses. Unlike C8 and C10, Lauric acid must be digested in the gut. This is why MCT’s are superior than supplementing with straight coconut oil which is mostly Lauric acid. Both have benefits, just different, it’s all about the blend!
- Phosphatidylcholine (PC) – a major component of the cell membrane essential to whole body function, energy regulation and is especially useful in memory and critical brain function. Studies show that PC is lower in the brains of people with Alzheimer’s.
How does MCT 143 Help Burn Fat?
MCT 143 is virtually tasteless and can be added to coffee (making a “fat coffee”), smoothies, snacks and salads for easy ingestion.
These MCT’s are converted to ketones by the body, burned as energy and not stored as fat. The resulting ketones can help your body reduce post workout inflammation, naturally lower blood sugar and insulin levels, and promote continued fat burning.
MCT 143 is a naturally thermogenic, which means it increases your calorie burn rate and can lead to fat loss.
How to Use MCT 143
MCT 143 is smooth, light, creamy and tasteless. You can seriously add MCT to anything!
Coffee, smoothies, make salad dressing, stir it into soups, or cook your foods in it on a low heat setting. I love cooking my eggs in it, and I also like to drizzle MCT 143 on my steamed veggies to get those healthy fats in. It’s even really good on oatmeal.
However, my favorite way to use is to add about 2 TBLS to my morning coffee with half and half for the perfect cup of fat burning coffee!
I avoid sugar in my coffee altogether and the MCT 143 blends perfectly. I’ve tried other brands and they don’t seem to mix as well, and they also don’t taste as good.
I’ve even gone so far as to squirt MCT 143 directly in my mouth when I needed energy for beach volleyball when I didn’t have any snacks handy! 🙂
The individual “on the go” MCT 143 packets are very handy whether you’re in the kitchen or on the road. It’s easy to carry a few with you rather than lug a big bottle of oil around.
Intermittent Fasting on MCT 143
Intermittent fasting, or time restricted eating, is a way of eating within a certain window of time that I’ve become very accustomed to.
Basically I use fat for fuel in the mornings and don’t eat my first meal until about 1pm, sometimes even later. This is called “fat fasting.”
I make my fat coffee in the morning with MCT 143 and get to work…for hours and feel great. This squashes my appetite and lights my brain up so I can delay eating until I’m actually hungry, and not based on what the clock says.
Once I get hungry, I usually eat some eggs and berries – I love berries! Then in the early afternoon, around 2pm, I drink a serving of Keto NAT which are exogenous ketones and you can read about my experience here with ketones.
The ketones give me sustained energy for the remainder of the day, keep my appetite in check, and I usually work out in the afternoons an hour or two after drinking them and then try to eat my last meal by no later than 9pm.
Eating during this time restricted window, i.e. intermittent fasting, has become my lifestyle. It keeps me from over eating, and it keeps me in a fat burning state of ketosis most of the time (even though I do eat carbs), and fuels my brain and body.
Going in and out of ketosis and just eating healthy foods is very sustainable for me. No strict ketogenic diet required.
Conclusion on MCT 143
Dr. Mary Newports MCT 143 in my opinion is Pruvit’s unsung hero – and I cannot live without it! My fat coffee in the morning is something I really enjoy drinking and look forward to.
I have noticed a HUGE difference in my brain function since I’ve been using it daily. No more wandering downstairs and forgetting why (I used to do that a lot and it got ridiculous). I even had trouble making decisions.
After I went through IVF fertility treatments, I was extremely scatterbrained and forgetful, and I’d also gained weight. I thought maybe I’d done irreparable damage to my body (and brain), and supplementing with the MCT helped me bounce back and improve my health.
I feel that this product ALONE gives me a tremendous benefit to my overall health, brain function, energy, and it definitely plays a big role in keeping me lean and controlling my appetite.
Who would I recommend MCT 143 to? EVERYONE. We all need healthy fats in our diets, and using the MCT everyday is a very easy and enjoyable way to supplement regardless of your lifestyle, or age.
Add some MCT to your kids smoothies, gift some to your parents to protect or improve their brain function, and use it yourself for the same reason.
