Coconut Oil - Organic Extra Virgin

Coconut Oil - Organic Extra Virgin

Unlike many coconut oils on the market, our raw centrifuged organic extra virgin coconut oil comes from fresh coconuts that do not undergo a refining process. Many coconut oils go through either the quick drying or wet-milling processes to extract the oil from the coconut. Instead, we use centrifugal extraction to derive the oil from the coconut. This method of extraction requires no heat at all and produces a raw organic virgin coconut oil that is absolutely amazing.

Our raw organic coconuts are harvested at the perfect age and are processed the same day on the same USDA certified organic coconut plantation where they are grown. The coconuts are dehusked and grated, and the fresh coconut meat is centrifuged to extract the oil. This process preserves the live enzymes, lauric acid, and all the other immune system building nutrients. Except for picking and opening the nut, there is little human handling in our process. Stainless steel mechanical equipment is used in order to provide a sanitary controlled environment in the processing plant. The coconut oil is strained and immediately bottled. No chemicals or preservatives are added. You only get pure unadulterated organic virgin coconut oil.

Organic raw extra virgin coconut oil is known throughout the world for its nutritional value and exciting flavor. You will love ours! It is created through the centrifuge extraction, of freshly picked coconuts. This process creates a mild, sweet oil with a light coconut taste that is smooth and delicious. Best of all it is certified organic. It's wonderful by the spoon as a supplement, as a salad dressing oil, or as one of the best oils on the market for cooking.

Raw organic Coconut oil is of special interest because it possesses healing properties far beyond that of any other dietary oil and is extensively used in traditional medicine among Asian and Pacific populations. Pacific Islanders consider coconut oil to be the cure for all illness. The coconut palm is so highly valued by them as both a source of food and medicine that it is called "The Tree of Life."

In the past coconut oil was believed to be unhealthy due to it's high saturated fat content. However, it has now been proven that fat contained in coconut is unlike any other fat on Earth and has high nutritional value. Why is Coconut Oil Different? Coconut oil has a unique fat molecule; this is what makes this oil different from most fats we consume. The Coconut Research Center explains, "The vast majority of fats and oils in our diets, whether they are saturated or unsaturated or come from animals or plants, are composed of long-chain fatty acids (LCFA). Some 98 to 100% of all the fatty acids you consume are LCFA." Coconut oil is known to have MCFA or medium-chain fatty acids, also referred to as MCT or medium-chain triglycerides. MCFA are metabolized by the human body differently because of their size; unlike the saturated and unsaturated fats in vegetable oils, eggs, milk and meats, which contain LCFA, coconut oil is a rare dietary source of MCFA and therefore highly beneficial to the body and overall health. Only recently has modern medical science unlocked the secrets to coconut's amazing healing powers.

A recent double-blind clinical trial put coconut oil to the test against soybean oil. In the featured 12-week long study, researchers evaluated the effects of coconut oil and soybean oil on the biochemical profiles and waist circumference on 40 obese women, aged 20-40. Belly fat, known as visceral fat, is the type of fat linked to heart disease, diabetes and stroke, among many other chronic diseases.

Divided into two groups of 20 participants each, the women received a daily supplement of 30ml (about two tablespoons) of either soybean oil or coconut oil. They also followed a balanced low-calorie diet, and walked for 50 minutes per day. These are the results at the end of the clinical trial:

The coconut oil group presented:

  • Increased levels of HDL (good cholesterol)
  • Decreased LDL/HDL ratio
  • Reduced waist circumference/abdominal obesity

The soybean oil group presented:

  • Increased total cholesterol
  • Increased LDL (bad cholesterol)
  • Increased LDL/HDL ratio
  • Decreased HDL (good cholesterol)
  • No reduction in waist circumference/abdominal obesity

The authors concluded:

"It appears that dietetic supplementation with coconut oil does not cause dyslipidemia (an abnormal amount of cholesterol and/or fat in your blood) and seems to promote a reduction in abdominal obesity."

The presence of lauric acid in coconut oil is another reason it is known for having super nutritional value. Lauric acid is a fatty acid also found in human breast milk, palm kernel oil, and bay leaf. The article, How a PR Campaign Led to Unhealthy Diets by Beatrice Trum Hunter, published in the August 2003 issue of Consumer's Research, volume 86 no. 8, states, "researchers demonstrated that coconut oil reduces the risk of degenerative conditions. It helps prevent bacterial, viral, and fungal infections, as a result of its antimicrobial component, lauric acid, which is found solely in coconut oil, palm kernel oil, bay leaf, and in breast milk."

Some possible traditional uses of Raw Organic Coconut Oil may include:

  • May offer profound benefits in the fight against Alzheimer's disease because of your bodies production of ketone bodies during digestion
