Progenex Cocoon is billed as a sleep-aid, recovery product. Dave Asprey's Upgraded MCT Oil is basically the essential saturated fat from coconut oil times ten. I don't need to preach about the need for proper recovery, nor the importance of coconut oil. These topics aren't new, shouldn't need introduction to readers of mine; if they do, use the search feature on this site.
I got my hands on Cocoon at the Progenex booth at NorthCentral Regionals, finally deciding to give it a try. My sleep is always crappy, has been my entire adult life. Over the years I've used melatonin nearly all the time, valarian for spurts, and a few times both together (not recommended; I had technicolor dreams). Never used sleeping pills or medication (other than red wine and NyQuil a few times when I felt a cold coming on).
Cocoon is the real deal. Go to the Progenex site for details; listen to Aaron Thomas' interview on this site; the why's and ingredients and chemistry is explained in detail. Suffice to say on heavy workout days I use one or two scoops of Cocoon in hot water just before bed (I tried it in cold water the first time, Jason and Aaron at Progenex told me it's so superior in hot water, and they are correct). Feed your muscles and entire system while you sleep and recover. And with Cocoon you'll sleep better. I do. Deeper with fewer interruptions in the night.
Upgraded MCT Oil is incredible. Dave Asprey talks about Bulletproof Coffee in interviews, on his site, with Joe Rogan on his podcast. If you're not making coffee with grass-fed butter and coconut or MCT oil you're missing out on wonderfulness! I switched to MCT oil a week ago, and feel the difference. My coffee now provides longer-term energy without the initial jolt and inevitable letdown.
In mid-afternoon I'm using my BlendTec to create a great iced bulletproof coffee: make three cups of coffee using the amount of grounds necessary for four cups. In other words, strong. Pour into the blender, then add two tablespoons MCT oil, two tablespoons unsalted KerryGold grass-fed butter, and two egg yolks (I buy real, chickens-that-walk-on-the-earth eggs from my local, wonderful butcher, Jacob's Market). Blend and savor. You'll be drinking creamy, delicious, healthy energy. It's amazing.
Cocoon and Upgraded MCT Oil. If you want to excel at life, jump on this bandwagon!
