What is Virgin 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® 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 (MCTs), such as lauric acid (C-12) and caprylic acid (C-8). MCTs 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.

Coconut Oil is healthy, versatile oil containing NO trans-fats. It has been shown to support the immune system, nourish the skin and increase energy levels. The MCTs in coconut oil support fat burning and HDL cholesterol levels. As these MCTs are metabolised in the liver, they are used as an energy source or converted to ketones which have powerful benefits for brain health. These benefits are being studied for conditions such as Alzheimer’s and Epilepsy.
