Virgin Coconut Oil from Now delivers the natural profile found in genuine food. Coconut oil is a traditional dietary staple of Asia, Africa, and the Pacific Island has been used in Ayurvedic herbalism for thousands of years. NOW Virgin Coconut Oil is an unrefined, organic, cold-pressed coconut oil. Coconut Oil contains no trans-fats and is a rich source of Medium-Chain Triglycerides (MCTs), such as lauric acid (C-12) and caprylic acids (C-8). MCT's are less likely to be stored in the body as fat than most other fatty acids. Combined with essential fatty acids (healthy fats), it is the perfect addition to an overall healthy lipid program.
