Virgin Coconut Oil
Virgin Coconut Oil, 12 fl. oz.
Our Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is a high grade, unrefined premium nutritional edible oil obtained from the first cold pressing of organic coconut (Cocos nucifera) kernels. Virgin Coconut Oil is naturally trans-fatty acid free and high in medium chain triglycerides (MCT). Although these MCTs are considered saturated fats, they are not digested like longer-chain saturated fats. MCTs are digested by saliva and gastric juices, and are absorbed directly from the intestines into the portal vein, where they're delivered to the liver and burned as fuel for instant energy needs. Very little is ever stored as fat.
How does this help my...
Virgin Coconut Oil is one of the richest plant sources of naturally-occurring Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT), such as caprylic, capric and lauric acids. Research has shown Lauric acid (a naturally-occurring Medium Chain Triglycerides [MCT]) to be an effective supporter of the immune system.
Coconut Oil may improve your so-called "cholesterol ratio" - an important relationship among LDL, HDL and total cholesterol.
Use instead of over-the-counter or grocery store cooking sprays/oils. A little bit goes a long way and it's better for you.
The use of healthy, natural fats such as coconut oil - in moderation, actually promote healthy weight. The medium-chain fatty acids are more easily assimilated by the body than the long-chain fatty acids found in most polyunsaturated oils, and are less likely to be stored as fat.
