Quick Overview

  • Comes in a glass container instead of plastic
  • Comprised of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs)

Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is made from fresh coconuts, grown and processed organically without bleaching, hydrogenation or refining. Organic coconut oil is nature's richest source of these MCFAs. By contrast, most common vegetable or seed oils are comprised of long chain fatty acids (LCFAs), also known as long-chain triglycerides or LCTs. There are several reasons to explain why these long-chain fatty acids are not as good for you as the MCFAs in organic coconut oil:

LCFAs are difficult for the body to break down -- they must be packaged with lipoproteins or carrier proteins and require special enzymes for digestion.
LCFAs put more strain on the pancreas, the liver, and the entire digestive system.
LCFAs are predominantly stored in the body as fat. (That's why most people believe into the myth that fats are automatically "fattening.")
LCFAs can be deposited within arteries in lipid forms such as cholesterol.
On the other hand, however, the MCFAs in organic coconut oil are better, because:

MCFAs are smaller. They permeate cell membranes easily, and do not require lipoproteins or special enzymes to be utilized effectively by your body.
MCFAs are easily digested, thus putting less strain on your digestive system.
MCFAs are sent directly to your liver, where they are immediately converted into energy rather than being stored as fat.
Organic coconut oil has often been compared to carbohydrates in its ability to be "burned" for energy. However, since insulin is not involved in the process of digesting the MCFAs in organic coconut oil, you won't get those carb-related spikes in your blood sugar level. This is especially good news for those of you concerned about maintaining blood sugar levels already in the normal range.

Why You Must Be Choosy About Your Brand of Organic Coconut Oil. As you may know, there is a very wide variety in organic coconut oil due to factors such as the manufacturing process used to make the oil, the age, and type of coconuts, and other issues that impact the quality, effectiveness and healthiness of your organic coconut oil.
