Organic Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is the cornerstone ingredient of Electro-Bites with 40% of the calories coming from fat. Coconut oil is a medium chain triglyceride that is quickly absorbed, metabolized and converted into energy with little digestion needed. Medium chain triglycerides are easy on the stomach as they are rapidly absorbed in the small intestine then transported to the liver where they are converted to energy. Coconut oil boasts a long list of health benefits that directly translate to optimal endurance performance.
