Is Thrive Coffee high in cholesterol?Updated 4 months ago

Thrive Coffee is rich in saturated fat, so the dietary cholesterol levels are quite high, but dietary cholesterol doesn’t simply convert to blood cholesterol. 


For most people, the amount of cholesterol eaten only has a marginal impact on the amount of cholesterol circulating in the blood. Some people may be more sensitive to dietary cholesterol, so if you are concerned about that, then it would be worth monitoring your levels while trying out the Thrive Coffee. 


The predominant ingredient is MCT (medium-chain triglyceride) powder, which has been shown in a meta-analysis to have no impact on total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, or HDL cholesterol levels. However, MCT may cause a small increase in triglycerides.
