Can you have any side effects when taking MCT Powder?Updated 9 months ago

While the powder is considered safe at the recommended dosage, it is possible that some individuals may experience side effects. If taken in large amounts, MCT oil or powder may cause nausea, abdominal pain, vomiting, and diarrhoea. In rare cases, long term use could lead to a build-up of fat in the liver or strain on the liver in those with liver conditions. 

Side effects of acacia fibre have been reported at high dosages of 30g (more than 6 times the amount in our product) and these included a viscous sensation in the mouth, early morning nausea, mild diarrhoea and bloating abdomen. But they only lasted the first week of the trial. 

If you experience any concerning side effects when taking the product, we advise you to consult your doctor, and please let us know.
