Organic Virgin Coconut Oil 500ml
Rainforest Herbs Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is made from premium fresh mature coconuts via cold-press technology. It is a functional food, natural beauty care product and herbal remedy all-in-one. It’s fresh sweet aroma and light taste is the reason it has been the superior brand in thousands of Malaysian pharmacies and retail stores since 2008.
In the Malay language, the coconut tree, pokok kelapa, is also known as pokok seribu guna, “the tree of a thousand uses”. In coastal India, the coconut tree itself is called kalpa vriksha, which translates as “the tree which provides all the necessities of life”. In the Philippines the coconut tree is simply called the “Tree of Life”.
Virgin Coconut Oil is made up of 65% medium chain fatty acids (MCFA's) that are metabolized quickly and the body uses them as an immediate source of fuel rather than packing them away in storage inside our fat cells. MCFA’s are an alternative source of energy to carbohydrates and are not circulated in the bloodstream like other fats (hence they do not increase the bad LDL cholesterol and lead to arterial deposits). MCFA’s supply energy without the need for insulin and are very suited for preventing blood sugar imbalances. Virgin Coconut Oil is rich in Lauric Acid which is the most powerful MCFA for its antimicrobial effects against many harmful bacteria, fungi and viruses.
