PHAT FIBRE v2: MCT Powder Supplement designed by athletes for maximum performance without the GI side-effects. Validated in a peer-reviewed, scientific study. Proven in the grueling 7-day BC Bike Race. Are you ready to kick it to the next level?
My name is Christopher Kelly. Three years ago I quit my job at a hedge fund to start Nourish Balance Thrive, a small functional medicine practice for athletes. I’m a computer scientist and pro mountain biker. I work with two medical doctors, one of whom is also a pro mountain biker, and the other is Dr Tommy Wood, a PhD research scientist. I employ a registered nurse, and I work with my wife Julia, who is a food scientist.
We all love MCT oil for the same reason: consistent high energy and mental focus. No doubt it does the same for close to 1,000 athletes we’ve been working with over the last three years.
But for the competitive athlete, there are several problems with MCT oil:
We tried all the MCT oil alternatives on the market we could find - powders, salts, etc. - but found they had additives that upset our sensitive guts, they tasted foul, they didn’t provide the performance boost we hoped for, or they gave us disaster pants!
So, mostly for ourselves, we set out to develop a better solution. Our dream product would:
Into the NBT Labs (okay, kitchen) we went, and emerged with PHAT FIBRE v1.
There followed intensive testing:
Based on the study’s findings, we then improved the product.
PHAT FIBRE v2 is our best formulation to-date, with even more performance benefit per serving, while being even easier on a sensitive gut!
Bottom line, PHAT FIBRE v2 is the ONLY ketone supplement I will take on race days!
PHAT FIBRE powder is colourless, odourless, flavourless and dissolves well in hot and cold liquids. It works great in drinks, soups and salads.
The medium-chain fatty acids in PHAT FIBRE are absorbed directly into the portal circulation and transported to the liver for rapid ketone production.
MCT (C8) consumption enhances fat oxidation and ketone production.
Ketones can then be used by the brain as fuel.
The added Bionic Fibre provides a small supply of glucose as a substrate for anapleurosis (i.e. regenerating oxaloacetate) to allow use of Acetyl-CoA coming from ketones or beta-oxidation of fats. Fat-adapted athletes can then maintain anapleurosis during extended endurance efforts without having to rapidly drain muscle glycogen (or cannibalize muscle) to do so.
Designed to be a hypoallergenic product with the sensitive gut in mind. There are two ingredients: C8 oil and Bionic Fibre. It contains no sweeteners and none of the common food allergens, especially gluten, dairy, soy, nuts and eggs.
Soluble fibre may also indirectly contribute to energy production through fermentation and the product of ketogenic short-chain fatty acids like butyrate, propionate, and acetate.
Users report their appetite is curbed for several hours after consumption in a beverage (a bulletproof coffee, for instance).
After consuming a pound of PHAT FIBRE, myself, in less than a week, with great energy, focus and performance and NO GI side-effects, I knew we had a winner.
