Nature’s Answer Extra Virgin Coconut Oil – Organic Coconut oil comes from the meat of matured coconuts harvested from the coconut palm. It has a long traditional history of use as food and natural health support. Not all fats are created equal: There are three types of fatty acids. Because of the various lengths of the fatty acids, they are digested and metabolized differently. Short-chain fatty acids are formed in the intestines by friendly bacteria and are rapidly metabolized by the intestinal cells. Long-chain fatty acids are turned into triglycerides and then are taken up by cells and used for energy or are stored. Medium-chain fatty acids are absorbed and transported directly to the liver where they are burned efficiently for energy. Coconut oil is high in MEDIUM CHAIN FATTY ACIDS (MCT), and contains three healthy components that are found in nature : Lauric Acid, Caprylic Acid and Capric Acid. All three of these have health supporting effects. For example coconut oil is one of the best sources of naturally occurring Lauric acid, which is regularly added to baby formula because of its immune supporting properties.
