Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
Our Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is a high quality organic coconut oil that is creamy, smooth and sweet with a mild coconut taste that can be used in a wide variety of recipes. It is derived from the kernel of the coconut (cocos nucifera) known by many indigenous cultures as The Tree of Life. From the moment of harvesting the coconuts, absolutely no heat at all is applied in the making of this oil. It retains all the flavor and essential nutrition of pure fresh coconuts! Nearly two-thirds of its saturated fat is made up of short and medium-chain fatty acids. And because it's truly a raw fat and has no trans fatty acids, it's a lot easier for your liver to break down than processed oils and foods.
Virgin coconut oil is the healthiest oil you can consume and cook with. Coconut is the richest source of Lauric acid which is a raw material your body uses to make Monolaurin. Monolaurin is an antiviral, antibacterial, antiparasitical, antimicrobial nutrient your body uses to build the immune system to fend off everyday viruses and bacteria that the body is exposed to. If you don't have Lauric acid in your diet, you can't make monolaurin. It is also rich in natural vitamin E, antioxidants, sterols and enzymes,
Most commercial coconut oils are refined, bleached, and deodorized, and some are even hydrogenated. Others that are called “cold-pressed” still are fermented or heated, losing the natural vitamin E and tocopherols needed for stability and protection against rancidity.
Premium oils, such as our Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, are stable, have long shelf life and rejuvenating, nutritional, and moisturizing properties. This premium oil is made by using no heat in any part of the process. This enables the product to retain the natural nutrients that nature gave the coconut including natural vitamin E, antioxidants, sterols and enzymes.
Because of the natural components of vitamin E, antioxidants, and enzymes, you can even use it on your skin as a moisturizer. It’s natural emollient, moisturizing, occlusive, and antioxidant characteristics make it superb for rejuvenating dry, stressed and aging skin as well as delicate skin.
