About this Certified Organic Coconut Oil:
Part of the reason coconut oil is so nutritious is because it is rich in medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs). These are easily-digested, healthy fats that are readily used for energy - not stored as fat. Additionally, they're more heat-stable than other fats, making them more suitable for cooking.
MCTs (lauric and caprylic acid)are also antimicrobial and antifungal, which can help protect and defend both the skin and the digestive system against infectious agents or bacterial imbalance.
- Rich in MCTs - these fats are directly absorbed by the intestines and used for energy. They may also improve nutrient absorption and protect against infectious agents.
