Bulletproof™ coffee fans, listen up… there’s now a new way to chow down on brain boosting good fats – introducing our new POWER BALLS made with almonds, almond butter, Bulletproof™ XCT coconut oil, desiccated coconut, dates, chia seeds & vanilla essence. They’re a source of good fats and sustainable energy which make for a great brain-boosting breakfast that will keep you full till lunch or a pre-gym fuel up for extra endurance and stamina.
For those of you new to the game, what exactly is Bulletproof™ coffee?
At Crussh we make two types of Bulletproof™ coffee. The base for both is a combination of organic coffee and grass-fed butter. We then add your choice of Bulletproof™ Brain Octane Oil or Bulletproof™ XCT Oil before whizzing it up in a blender (more about the types of oil later). Sounds odd right? But the result is a delicious tasting, creamy coffee with some incredible benefits which, according to Bulletproof™ are:
‘Suppressed hunger – Brain Octane Oil balances ghrelin and CCK, your hunger hormones, keeping you full until lunch.
Steady lasting energy – The saturated fat in grass-fed butter slows the absorption of caffeine, which gives you even energy for several hours instead of a caffeine spike and crash.
Mental clarity – Brain Octane rapidly converts to ketones, a type of molecule that your brain uses more efficiently than carbs or sugar. Pair ketones with the slowly releasing caffeine and you can literally feel your brain turning on.’
So, give it a go! Try replacing your breakfast with a Bulletproof™ coffee for a morning brain boost.
Bulletproof™ Brain Octane Oil Vs Bulletproof™ XCT Oil
Now you’ve got your head around blending oil and butter into your coffee, it’s time to learn a little more about the different types of Bulletproof™ oil at Crussh. Strap in… this part’s a little more complex.
Bulletproof™ Brain Octane Oil is essentially in its purest and most potent form. Composed just of C8 MCT (this means each fatty acid has 8 carbon molecules), it is converted into ketones very quickly, making it a potential hunger suppressant and a powerful source of brain fuel. It is produced sustainably, without solvents or additives and is considered to be the most powerful type of MCT oil available.
Bulletproof™ XCT Oil is a blend of Brain Octane and C10 MCT Oil. This blend will take slightly longer for you to break down and convert into ketones due to the fact that there are more carbon atoms present in C10. However, it still provides a good mental and metabolic boost!
Bulletproof™ XCT Oil is a great starting point in the world of Bulletproof™ coffee and a slightly cheaper alternative to the more powerful Brain Octane Oil.
Both Brain Octane and XCT Oil outweigh traditional coconut oil which is composed of mainly C12. The extra carbon atoms require additional metabolic steps which, in turn, makes it much harder to absorb and break it down into ketones.
