Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is a vegetable oil extracted from the copra – or dried inner flesh of coconuts. It consists of about 90% saturated fat, and because of this, is slow to oxidize and resistant to rancidity.

While coconut oil has been the subject of much controversy in the last few decades, research continues to mount on the health benefits of this delicious ingredient.

Coconut oil is a rich source of medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) and lauric acid which kill a myriad of bacteria, protozoa and fungus, including Candida albicans – the fungus responsible for yeast infections.

Coconut oil is also gluten-free.
