Does Mct Oil Give You A Sour Stomach? Nausea? How Much Can You Tolerate?
First few weeks of my keto diet was great, I actually had very little problems consuming MCT oil's. I started with a 1/2tbsp per day and worked my way up to 3-4 TBSP per day when I ran into a road block. One day after my exercise routine I made myself a post-workout protein drink with MCT (protein, powdered peanutbutter and 1 tbsp brain octane) and I got VERY sick. I was very close to puking and felt drained of all my energy, couldn't do anything but lie there for the rest of the day, and didn't feel too good the next day either. It was either my 3rd of 4th tbsp of the day. No digestive problems from it, just felt very sick to my stomach, like my stomach was filled with a sour acid. In the past when I've felt a sour stomach like that it usually resulted in bad diarrhea, but this time just proved to be extremely uncomfortable. I wish I could have crapped it out!
Ever since that day my tolerance to MCT's is very low. The onnit emulsified with C12's seems to sit a little better with me and I can have 1 tbsp with my coffee in the morning without any consequences. But now anymore after that and im pushing the envelope.
It should be stated I dont touch my MCT based drinks until I have a full meal in my stomach with lots of fiber, or with a few tsp's of soluble fiber mixed with my MCT drink. Like right now I just had my lunch, chicken salad tons of spinach and greens, and my MCT(xct, 1tbsp)+PB+fiber+coconut milk drink gave me a uncomfortable sickly feeling for a solid 30 minutes.
Has anyone else experienced this? My body has done this in the past for various substances, it seems like when I take too much of something my body will rigorously reject it and cause a large amount of strong negative symptoms, and then for the next several months I wont be able to tolerate very much of whatever it was that triggered the feeling. Really hoping I can get my tolerance back because this stuff works wonders when I can consume it.
Are there any brands that you folks have found you tolerated better? I ordered a few more to experiment with to see how I respond to them. And how much can you guys take, and specifically when you do take too much what are the symptoms that you experience?
