“Brain Octane is naturally found in coconut oil in small quantities, and we concentrate it to provide you with the purest energy source possible.

I add this to almost every meal in one way or another. In the morning I adda tablespoon to my smoothie, lunch and dinner I drizzle it over my avocado toast, salad, spaghetti, etc. It is clear and flavorless making it easy to add to almost any meal. I notice I have much more energy, can focus so much better, my mind feels sharp all day long and I do not get hungry as quickly.
“Bulletproof Coffee Cold Brew is more than a bottle of smooth, creamy goodness. It is a deliciously satisfying coffee beverage that keeps you fueled and energized throughout your day. Even better? It’s made with zero sugar, so there’s no chance of a sugar crash.
Brain Octane oil powers your brain and curbs snack attacks. It is a totally flavorless and totally satisfying fat extracted from the most potent part of the coconut. Butter from grass-fed cows boasts higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids, compared to butter from grain-fed cows. Fatty acids, such as EPA and ALA, serve as energy for the muscles, heart, and other organs as building blocks for cell membranes and as energy storage for the body.”
Royal Jelly, another powerful substance produced by bees, is one of three powerhouse brain-boosting ingredients in this natural nootropic. “B.LXR is an innovative, natural formulation of royal jelly, ginkgo biloba, and bacopa monnieri, ideal for high performers looking for a caffeine-free mental boost. A powerful combination of adaptogens and superfoods, each shot of B.LXR has what it takes to invigorate and nourish your brain, so it can perform to the max in any situation” (BKN Website).
