Coconut oil is one of the best sources of medium chain fatty acids that are converted in the body into quick energy and not stored as fat.
This healthy saturated fat is antimicrobial—antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-parasitic—and has been found to be therapeutic in supporting optimal thyroid function, healthy skin, and weight loss. It has additionally been part of treatment protocols for cardiac disease, epileptic disorders, and dementia. The Polynesians, who consume coconut oil regularly, have among the lowest rates of heart disease and obesity in the world.

Certified organic raw coconut oil is grown and processed without the use of fertilizers, chemical solvents, high heat or additives. Using energetic testing (Matrix Reflex Testing, or MRT) this virgin cold-pressed coconut oil has consistently tested out superiorly.
