Help! My Stomach Really Hurts After Taking The Mct Oil.

Hi,


 


When I found out about Bulletproof coffee I started using NOW MCT oil with my coffee and I did just fine. I went thru 3 or 4 big bottles of it thru the months.


 


After I bought Dave's MCT Oil, it was like someone punched a hole inside my stomach. It literally hurts. The last time that something like this happened to me was when I was 11 years old and had to take very strong antibiotics.


 


I tried taking it with Enzymes, but nothing helped.


 


So I decided to just go back to NOW MCT oil.


 


Now, even NOW MCT oil makes me sick. I don't understand what's going on.


 


I don't have stomach problems. It's not heart burn. It actually hurts. Very weird.


 


Does anybody know what's wrong? Is there any enzyme I should be taking?


 


I would really appreciate the help!

    How much of it are you taking?


  • You're using too much MCT or too much butter.


     


     I had this same problem at first, decrease the amount u are using and try again :)


  • I don't think it's the quantity. I has no problem with NOW MCT oil before. And I used to use a ton of it.


     


    It only started after I tried Upgraded MCT oil - And I only used a little bit. Not even a table spoon.


     


    And my main concern is that like Dave explained, MCT oil helps with mental resilience - And I need that!!! 


     


    So I need to figure out why his MCT oil, and now other MCT Oils are drilling a hole inside my stomach.


     


    Thanks for both replies, but I don't think amount is the problem.


     


    Any other ideas? 


     


    Thanks you so much for the help!

    Let me reiterate what happened because I left you guys confused:


     


    When I found out about Bulletproof coffee, I started using the brand NOW MCT Oil. I used at least 2 or more tablespoons everytime. I went thru 3 or 4 bottles in 4 months. Never had any problem.


     


    Then I bought Dave's Upgraded MCT Oil. And even a little bit of it made my stomach hurt. Doesn't matter how little I take, it punches a hole in my stomach and hurts. The only other time I felt this was when I took very strong antibiotics when I was a child.


     


    I tried taking with Enzymes, but it didn't work. Maybe there are better enzymes out there.


     


    So I decided to stop taking Dave's MCT Oil, and went back to NOW MCT Oil. The unfortunate part is that even NOW MCT OIl makes me sick.


     


    Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

  • This is where I wish I could downvote.
  • I have no idea what's going on...

    Upgraded MCT is very strong. I often consume 2-3 TBS of  MCT every day and then none on a Sunday. Then back on Monday I even reduce the MCT and still get a bit of gastric distress, but next day im fine with about 30g of mct.

    What Enzymes are you using? I would make sure It has some sort of bile to assist with the fats.

  • You probably have developed some problems with MCT's in general.  Going to Upgraded MCT was just a coincidence.


     


    Could be inflammation, could be you've been low carb for too long etc..etc..etc...


     


    MCT & Coconut oil made me deathly ill.  I had to start off with a teaspoon blended into a smoothie and work my way up.  Now I can do 3-5 Tbsp a day.


     


    What else can you share with us about your situation?

  • Hazakins - I was using the enzymes from Biotrust.


    I will purchase the one that David recommends from Amazon called NOW Foods Betaine HCL which should help with the digestion of fat. Hopefully that will help with the MCT digestion. Thank you, Hazakins.


     


    The funny thing is that I can still take as much butter or coconut oil on my coffee as I want. That doesn't make me sick at all.


     


    Robin.Kate - I am not on a low carb diet. I am not in any diet at the moment. Also, I try to observe as much as possible my response to things I eat. And the pain in my stomach only started after I started taking Dave's MCT oil. I am sure. But I will try every enzyme possible to make sure this doesn't continue happening. I know how important MCT oil is. 


    There isn't much about my situation. Since the problems with my stomach, now I take my Bulletproof coffee with lots of Ghee and Coconut Oil.


    I am not in any sort of diet at the moment. But I will definitely try taking a very small portion of MCT oil and see what happens. Thank you, Robin.Kate


     


    I will see what happens once I get the enzyme! Thanks!!

    I see what you did there.

  • have you tried substituting coconut oil for the MCT to see if it has the same effect? you still get ketones it's just not as concentrated.

    You bolded words to piss off Jason Miller after he told you how it annoyed him -- or at least I thought you did. It would have been hilarious had you done it intentionally.


  • She started using the upgraded stuff and developed an intolerance to all mct, how hard is it to understand lol.  


     


    Ingredients wise, how do the NOW and the Upgraded compare?    


     


    I was thinking about changing to the upgraded so this is good info.
