Virgin Coconut Oil (Certified Organic) Overview
NOW Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is finding its way into hundreds of new AllStarHealth customers' kitchens each month as people discover its great taste and versatility. Forget what you may have heard about coconut oil (the 'bad' coconut oils are the cheap, hydrogenated, refined coconut oils used in junk food) because this kind of coconut oil - organic, raw and unrefined - is not only 'not' bad for you, it's very good for you compared to other edible oils and incredibly versatile in the kitchen. NOW Extra Virgin Organic Coconut Oil has a great coconut aroma, but the coconut taste imparted to food is so slight, there's really no dish it can overpower. Yet its subtle taste of NOW Coconut Oil wonderfully complements vegetables, fish, rice and even popcorn. Used in baking, sautéing, grilling or stir-frying, NOW Organic Coconut Oil can easily be the solid or liquid oil you need because it melts at a manageable 76 degrees.
On top of all these great uses in the kitchen, NOW Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is a superlative skin and hair moisturizer, extremely emollient and enriching when dryness and exposure have taken their toll. With so many different uses and a modest price, most customers order one jar of NOW Extra Virgin Coconut Oil jar for the kitchen and another jar for the bathroom.
