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® Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is unrefined cold-pressed oil, and does not utilize any solvents in the manufacturing process.  Coconut oil contains no trans-fats and is a rich source of 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.  Combined with essential fatty acids, it is a perfect addition to an overall healthy lipid program.*


Suggested Usage

As a dietary supplement, take 3 softgels 2 to 3 times daily with meals.
