Beneficial Fatty Acids
Source of MCT's
Cold-Pressed and Unrefined
Made with Certified Organic Coconut Oil
A Dietary Supplement
Coconut Oil (Cocus nucifera) is a traditional dietary staple of the people of Asia, Africa, and the Pacific Islands and has been used in Ayurvedic herbalism for thousands of years. NOW® Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is unrefined cold-pressed oil, and does not utilize any solvents in the manufacturing process. Coconut oil contains no trans-fats and is a rich source of Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT's), such as lauric acid (C-12) and caprylic acid (C-8). MCT's are less likely to be stored in the body as fat than most other fatty acids. Combined with essential fatty acids, it is a perfect addition to an overall healthy lipid program.

Overall Rating for Virgin Coconut Oil 1000 mg 120 Softgels
|(based on 1 review)|
Needed to check equivalent before purchase!
By Naomi from Chassell MI on May 6, 2012
I found out that you need to take 14 gel caps to equal 1 Tablespoon. I was told to take 3 TBSP/day so this bottle would last less than 3 days. Not worth it!
Pros:Gel caps easier to take than regular cocnut oil.
Cons:Cannot imagine taking 14 caps 3 times a day. Would also be very expensive at that rate.
