I love coffee and believe it or not, it’s actually a great incentive for me to hop out of bed early most mornings to get things done. Also, if you’re like me and you drink a lot of coffee, you may want to read my article, Is Your Coffee A Healthy Brew?
Therefore, needless to say, I’m always on the lookout for new brands and flavors of coffee and creamers. I recently found this coffee creamer in our local grocery store.
It contains MCT oil and monk fruit for a super boost of creamy flavor to your morning coffee. Per Healthline.com
Monk fruit, or lo han guo, is a small green melon native to southern China and named after the monks who first cultivated it centuries ago. The health benefits of the fruit have been well-known in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for decades, but its sweet little secret is finally making it into the wellness mainstream. It’s a sweetener that has zero calories and has anti-inflammatory properties.
Medium-chain triglycerides are a type of fat that is found in certain oils and dairy products. MCT oil is a supplement made of these fats.
MCTs have many potential health benefits, and taking MCT oil supplements may also be beneficial.
While MCTs may not lead to dramatic weight loss, they may be able to play a role in overall weight management. They may also help boost energy and endurance, although more research is needed to prove this benefit.
A growing body of research also suggests that MCTs may improve a person’s ability to think and fight the effects of conditions such as Alzheimer’s.
I never add sweetener to my coffee and most creamers have unhealthy ingredients. This creamer is a big hit with me, with natural ingredients that add a delicious, creamy- slightly sweet flavor. And best of all, I might be imagining this but I felt a boost of energy for my workout.
