Superfoods Organic Coconut Oil 750ml
What makes this coconut oil superior? A truly naturally processed and high integrity coconut oil product tastes like coconut! The more neutral in flavour the less potent it is in delivering the health benefits it claims. There is a trend towards ‘odourless’ and ‘neutral’ coconut oil at the moment, but this would suggest that the coconut oil has been heavily refined and is no longer cold processed. Superfoods Extra Virgin Coconut oil has an authentic and delicious full bodied flavour. Our unique and traditional way of cold processing the coconuts, including the membrane (testa), gives it a richer full bodied flavour indicative of its nutritional superiority.
“These studies indicated that the oil from coconut testa contained more of natural antioxidants such as tocopherols, tocotrienols and phenolics compared to coconut kernel oil and may confer health benefits.”Excerpt from research study on the composition of coconut testa, coconut kernel and its oil.

The Benefits of Using Coconut Oil: Coconut oil is a raw saturated fat, containing mostly powerful medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs). Some of the health benefits are:Healthy cholesterol: Coconut supports the formation of healthy HDL cholesterol .Contrary to the common misconception, coconut oil contains no cholesterol, and actually helps to reduce cholesterol levels by converting it into healthy hormones, outperforming even cold- pressed olive oil!
Supports weightloss: The saturated medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs) in coconut speeds up metabolism, and stabilises blood sugar thereby facilitating weightloss.
Energy boosting: The MCFAs in coconut oil require less energy and fewer enzymes to digest thus providing more energy more quickly than other fat sources.
Immune enhancing: The MCFAs in coconut have powerful antiviral, antimicrobial and antifungal properties.
Helps fight candida: The caprylic acid in coconut oil is one of the most potent yeast-fighting substances, excellent in helping overcome candida infections.
Hormone balancing: Coconut oil supports the conversion of healthy cholesterol intoanti-ageing master hormone pregnenalone, which balances and supports the hormonal system .
Skin youthening: Coconut oil’s antiseptic elements keep the skin healthy and youthful. It also makes the best natural tanning lotion, personal lubricant and massage oil.
Best cooking oil: Coconut oil is the most stable of all oils. It is the only oil you should ever consider using for cooking because it is a completely saturated fat and does not turn to dangerous trans fats (cancer-forming bad fat) when cooked.
