NOW Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is a high grade, unrefined premium nutritional edible oil obtained from the first cold pressing of organic coconut (Cocos nucifera) kernels.  Virgin Coconut Oil is naturally trans-fatty acid free and high in medium chain triglycerides (MCT).
This oil typically contains the following beneficial fatty acids per serving (natural variation may occur): Lauric Acid 6.5 g, Myristic Acid 2.4 g, Caprylic Acid 1.0 g, Capric Acid 800 mg, Oleic Acid 800 mg and Linoleic Acid 200 mg.

Coconut oil is one of the healthiest oil to consume.  It can withstand high heat, and will not go rancid like most other oils do when heated.  It has anti-viral properties, it can dissolve the outer wall of the virus, leaving it vulnerable.  It contains MCT oils, a fat that not only burns like a carbohydrate, but does not store as bodyfat easily. It nourishes the tyroid, and is useful for any thyroid condition.  It has been shown in studies to support brain health & memory, and there is evidence it can help with brain diseases.
