A charity lunch by Perak Parkinson’s Association in collaboration with COCOLAB at Secret Garden Restaurant saw the special introduction of COCOLAB’s latest product, MCT C8 Oil (caprylic triglycerides).
Held on Sunday, July 28, a total of RM500 was raised from the intimate lunch. Present were Samuel Ng, president of Perak Parkinson’s Association, Alexander Khor, director (research & development) of COCOLAB and Angeline Khor, director (business development) of COCOLAB.
Manufactured in Malaysia and available internationally, MCT C8 is made of coconut oil and palm kernel oil.
MCT C8 delivers double the level of ketones compared to normal MCT (medium-chain triglycerides) oils. Ketones are small enough to be an alternative energy that fuels the brain and is known to aid brain disorders such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, dementia and autism.
A substitute for glucose, ketones alleviate fatigue, protect against the risk of cancers, improve concentration and reduce blood sugar and insulin level.
It is popularly included in a ketogenic diet for weight loss because of its ability to suppress hunger spikes and to send the body into ketosis, a metabolic state in which the body switches its energy source from glucose energy to ketone energy which comes from burning excess fats in the body.
Available in travel-friendly sachets, the taste-free product mixes well into food and can be consumed on its own before or after a meal. For instance, it can be incorporated in salads, juices, coffee, oats or baking recipes.
COCOLAB is a research-based and knowledge-driven company whose principal activities revolve around natural health supplements. Its products are targeted at those who prefer to nourish and heal their bodies without the need for synthetic drugs and harmful chemicals.
