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.*
Take 3 softgels daily with food.
NOW® Virgin Coconut Oil delivers the natural nutrient profile found in Genuine Whole Foods.
