NOW® Virgin Coconut Oil delivers the natural nutrient profile found in Genuine Whole Foods.
Coconut Oil (Cocos 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 refined 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 (MCTs), 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.*
