* Beneficial Fatty Acids * Source of MCT's * Cold-Pressed and Unrefined * Trans-Fat Free * Made with Certified Organic Coconut Oil
Coconut Oil (Cocus nucifera) is a traditional dietary staple of the people of Asia, Africa, and the Pacific Islands and has been used in Ayurvedic herbalism for thousands of years. NOW Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is unrefined cold-pressed oil, and does not utilize any solvents in the manufacturing process. Coconut oil contains no trans-fats and is a rich source of Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT's), such as lauric acid (C-12) and caprylic acid (C-8). MCT's are less likely to be stored in the body as fat than most other fatty acids. Combined with essential fatty acids, it is a perfect addition to an overall healthy lipid program.
NOW also supplies Certified Organic, 100% Pure, Virgin Coconut Oil in liquid form.
