Organic Coconut Oil May Reduce Cholesterol, Strengthen Immunity, and Support Metabolism
The organic certified virgin coconut oil we offer at South Pacific Trading Company is a healthful alternative to conventional coconut oil products that are treated with chemical pesticides. We want you to have the most pure product available, so we skip the pesticides, excessive processing, and other adulterations to achieve that goal. While many other coconut products undergo heating and contain fillers, the organic virgin coconut oil offered by SPTC is cold pressed to maintain its nutritious properties, and it contains no additives. We’ve even taken an extra step in ensuring the healthfulness of our coconut oil by packaging it in glass bottles, eliminating the risk of chemical leaching that is commonly associated with plastic containers.
Our organic virgin coconut oil is excellent as an all-purpose cooking oil, thanks to its high smoke point and long shelf life, or you can take it as a supplement. However you choose to consume it, you may experience several health benefits from this nourishing oil, which is believed to:
- Reduce cholesterol levels
- Support and strengthen the immune system
- Aid metabolism
- Have anti-microbial and antiviral properties
Coconut oil is also easier to digest than most fats, as it contains medium-chain fatty acids. These acids are more readily burned as energy, while long-chain fatty acids – often found in other fats– are typically stored as body fat or deposited in the arteries. Medium chain fatty acids may also help your body to better absorb calcium, magnesium, and other nutrients. Plus, because our organic coconut oil contains high levels of lauric acid, which is highly emollient, it makes a superb skin moisturizer as well.
