It’s been ages since healthy fats rushed back into fashion in the health and wellness world. Our brains are made of 60% fat and, after years of fat-phobia, phenomenons like the keto diet and a keener differentiation between good and bad fats helped most of us realize the crucial role that healthy fats play in our overall health.
If you’ve been with us a while, you’re familiar with our regular feature, TCM Item of the Week. We see so much product — the best new wellness products and programs, clean beauty, sustainable fashion, fitnesswear and more. Some products are just meh, and others thrill us to the core. This feature is where we’re featuring those products.
WHAT IT IS: Naomi’s Creamy MCT Vanilla-Coconut Swirl
Naomi’s Creamy MCT is basically whipped MCT with the lightest hint of sweet flavor added, but still clean, natural and free of sugar. We’re not sure where this product has been all our lives, but now that it’s here, we’re hooked.
Creamy MCT makes a great alternative to straight MCT oil if you’re looking to avoid that oily texture or want something more easily blendable — and it’s still keto-friendly. To make Naomi’s MCT, organic coconut oil goes through a gentle enzymatic process for purification and concentration (batched test for mold and mycotoxins) and is then emulsified into a rich, whipped texture we can’t get over.
If you’re not familiar, medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) are a unique type of fat that is metabolized quickly in the body. MCTs go directly to the liver where they can provide an instant rush of energy or are turned into ketones — the stuff keto devotees are always after. Usually derived from coconut oil, many nutritional proponents (and everyday devotees) of MCT oil use it to:
+ Boost metabolism
+ Increase energy
+ Enhance mental focus
+ Reduce food cravings
+ Support ketosis

WHY WE’RE OBSESSED: Whether you’re on a keto diet or not, MCT oil is a popular ingredient studied to support brain and metabolic health. Because it can be easily added to coffee, smoothies or other everyday recipes, MCT is one of the easiest ways to incorporate more healthy fats to your diet throughout the day. MCT oil itself is very concentrated, so it can overload your digestive system if you’re not ‘fat adapted’. Since Creamy MCT is whipped, it’s much lighter and easier to digest for most!
WHAT TO DO WITH IT: Unlike straight MCT oil, quite honestly, you could eat Creamy MCT right off the spoon. Naomi’s version has a creamier texture and subtly sweet flavor that make it a really nice way to knock back healthy fats throughout the day.
Add Creamy MCT to smoothies, tea or lattes in the morning or afternoon. We love a good latte at home with all kinds of superfoods added and Creamy MCT is on our ingredient short list. Simply blend or shake one tablespoon into black coffee or espresso with your favorite nut milk to supercharge your daily cuppa with brain-boosting, fat burning support — that tastes rich, sweet and creamy.
If you’re looking for solutions to help you either get or stay in ketosis, a product like Creamy MCT is such a convenient product to have around — and a delicious break from the regular keto staples! If it’s just an early morning or mid-day boost you’re after, for energy, fat burning and concentration, Creamy MCT is TCM-approved as a foodie-meets-wellness nerd staple.
