This is a pure form of virgin coconut oil that has not been hydrogenated, bleached, refined or deodorised. It can be used in cooking, baking and added raw to recipes and meals. Coconut oil has long been recognised as a healthy nutrition option and is equally kind to the outside of the body as a skin or hair conditioner.
Coconut oil is known as an ‘energy fat’, embraced by dieters, athletes, and body builders. Rich in Lauric acid (about 50%), coconut oil is processed in the liver where it is converted directly into energy. Coconut oil is anti-viral, antibacterial, and anti-fungal. Coconut oil can provide a quick boost in energy and the valuable medium chain triglycerides will help reduce inflammation and strengthen immunity. It is high in fat, but it is fat in medium chain fatty acids, not the trans fatty acids that can be so damaging.
