About Organic Raw Virgin Coconut Oil
A pure, unrefined coconut oil sustainably and ethically sourced from Sri Lanka. This Raw, Virgin Coconut Oil contains nothing but unspoiled coconut goodness, and can be used either for cooking or as a skin treatment!
Coconut Oil is high in saturated fat, however recent studies have shown that it is actually a 'good' type of fat - high in medium chain triglycerides, fatty acids which, rather than being stored as fat, are quickly turned into energy and actually help the body burn fat and reduce hunger. Around half of those fatty acids are lauric acid (also found in human breast milk), which has powerful antibacterial properties.
Use coconut oil as a replacement for butter in spreads and cooking. Try it with popcorn, or added to smoothies and shakes.
