Left Coast MCT Oil (Melanie likes this brand a lot, which is derived only from coconuts, has a nice C8/C10 ratio, and is quite affordable. However, it does come in a BPA-free plastic bottle, so consider transferring it to a glass bottle when you get it!)

Brain Octane MCT Oil (More expensive, as it is C8 only - which is faster assimilated and potentially more ketogenic.)

Clean MCT Oil (More expensive, as it is C8 only - which is faster assimilated and potentially more ketogenic.)

AC: The Power Of Appetite Correction (Bert Herring) (Gin loves this book!)

Prescript Assist (Awesome soil-based probiotic!!)

Rejuvenative Foods Fermented Food (Melanie is obsessed with their "Vegi-Delite", available at some Whole Foods)
