Coconut Oil - Certified Organic Overview
Body First’s Certified Organic Coconut Oil is a whole food source of all natural, healthy fats including lauric, myristic, capric and caprylic acids. The majority of the fat in coconut oil consists of medium chain triglycerides, which have been shown to support healthy weight management. Coconut oil can be enjoyed by itself or used as an alternative to butter or other oils. *
Once absorbed, the body is able to convert the lauric acid found in coconut oil into glyceryl laurate (monolaurin), which has powerful immune boosting properties. Monolaurin has been shown to possess antibacterial, antimicrobial and antifungal characteristics, which can cleanse the digestive system and prevent irritable bowel syndrome. Lauric acid intake has also been associated with reduced cholesterol and blood pressure. *
The medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) found in coconut oil provide a clean source of energy for your body, increasing the likelihood that those calories will be used as energy rather than stored as body fat. Because MCTs are easily converted into energy, they help support healthy weight management, especially when replacing other fats in one’s diet. *
