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® Virgin Coconut Oil is unrefined cold-pressed oil and does not utilize any solvents in the manufacturing process.
Coconut oil has no trans-fats and is abundant in 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.* When combined with essential fatty acids, it is a perfect addition to an overall healthy lipid program.*
