In recent years, coconut oil’s popularity has grown tremendously. From cooking to hair care, to coffee and smoothies, coconut oil is the superfood we did not know we needed!
Virgin Coconut oil is made when the fat white “meat” of the coconut is pressed. It is loaded with health benefits and contains no cholesterol, no fibre, and only traces of vitamins and minerals.
The main component of coconut oil is its medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), easily digested and absorbed by the body and processed by the liver. It provides energy to cells that power critical bodily functions.
