Coconut Oil is one of nature’s most misunderstood foods. The same heat stable properties of natural saturation that make it the ideal cooking oil are also the source of much of the misinformation about Coconut Oil. One of the most important points to be made regarding Coconut Oil is that not all saturated fats are alike. This non-hydrogenated naturally saturated oil does not contain trans-fatty acids.
Omega Nutrition Certified Organic Coconut Oil is significant plant source of lauric acid. Noted fats and lipid scientist Dr. Mary Enig PhD has stated Lauric acid may prove to be a conditionally essential saturated fatty acid, and the research to establish this fact around the world needs to be vigorously promoted. Lauric acid has been shown in various scientific studies to suppress bacterial and viral activities, making it especially important for immune-suppressed individuals. A form of lauric acid is found naturally in human milk and helps to keep infants from being infected by viruses and bacteria. Omega Nutrition’s Certified Organic Coconut Oil is one of nature’s most beneficial, nutritious and easily digestible culinary oils. See benefits below.
