This product contains organic virgin coconut oil in 1000 mg softgel capsules. The beautiful white capsules can both be consumed for the health-promoting properties of coconut oil - or be punctured, after which you can use the clean organic oil on your skin or in your hair.
Coconut oil is extracted from fresh coconuts. Our coconut oil is organic, and virgin pressed. When an oil is "virgin pressed", it means that no heat has been used during the extraction of oil from the coconut. Thus, preserving more of the oil's natural nutrients, and in addition the delicious coconut taste and aroma is retained to a greater extent.
The oil is rich in saturating fatty acids - including medium-chain triglycerides - also called MCTs (about 50% of the fatty acid content of the oil). This type of fatty acid is shorter than most other diet-related fatty acids (LCTs) that you find in avocado or oil, for example. The medium-chain fatty acids do not require the same enzymes or bile acids when they are to be digested and absorbed as LCTs require. Therefore, they go directly into the liver, where the body uses it to create ketones and energy. Coconut oil and MCT oil are very popular in the sports industry due to the above mentioned properties.
Everyone can benefit from this organic and virgin coconut oil. You can take it with your multivitamin, as an individual supplement or use the oil from the capsules on your skin. It's full of nourishment and often used in skincare- and haircare products as a moisturizing agent.
Recommended daily supplement dose: 1 Softgel capsule 1 - 2 times daily in connection with a meal.
