Cold Pressed - 100% Pure Coconut Oil:
All natural. Made from 100% pure, fresh coconut meat. No trans fatty acids, no hydrogenated fats. No added fragrances, flavoring, or coloring. Has not been refined, bleached, or deodorized. Has no known side effects. Its antioxidant action gives extra virgin coconut oil the longest shelf life of any vegetable oil.*
Not all fatty acids are alike. Lauric acid, for example, it a "good" saturated fatty acid.* An analysis of 60 cholesterol clinical trials shows that the lauric acid in coconut oil helps maintain cholesterol levels that are already within the normal range, as measured by the ratio of total cholesterol to "good" (HDL) cholesterol.*¹
The lauric acid and monoglycerides in mother's milk help the immune system of the new-born baby. The same lauric acid and monoglycerides in coconut oil may help support the adult immune system.*
By maintaing healthy intestinal flora, coconut oil may help contribute to a healthy gastrointestinal tract.*
