A rich, tropical oil that can be taken as a dietary supplement, used in cooking, and applied to skin and hair. View larger.
Barlean's Coconut Oil is classified virgin, which means it's minimally processed, unrefined, and not deodorized with harsh solvents. It's also certified USDA Organic and backed by Barlean's 100-percent guarantee.
Rich in MCTs for Energy and Weight Control
A powerful source of nutrition, coconut oil is made up of special fatty acids called medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), which make it unique among other fats. While we tend to think of triglycerides as bad, the medium-chain varieties are actually good for you. In fact, MCTs are widely used by high-endurance athletes because of their powerful energy-producing properties.
Coconut oil's high MCT count allows it to be metabolized as a carbohydrate to create immediate energy that can stimulate the entire body. Therefore, consuming coconut oil can help increase your metabolism and even help you lose weight.
Health Benefits of MCTs
The MCTs in Barlean's Coconut Oil--which include lauric acid, caprylic acid, and capric acid--have been reported to possess a wide variety of health benefits. Some studies show that they can increase HDL, the good cholesterol, which favorably affects the cholesterol ratio (the relationship between total and HDL cholesterol). Coconut oil can also boost your energy level, support a healthy immune system, and nourish skin and hair.
Take Internally or Apply Externally for Best Benefits
It's easy to incorporate Barlean's Virgin Coconut Oil into your daily life. As a general guideline, use one tablespoon per 50 pounds of body weight per day, which equates to the amount of MCTs babies get daily from mother's milk. Much smaller amounts will still be beneficial. Great results can be experienced with just one tablespoon per day.
You can use coconut oil as a replacement for butter or oils in cooking and baking, or apply it externally to moisturize the skin and hair.
