Product Description

The truth about coconut oil is obvious to anyone who has studied the health of those who live in traditional tropical cultures, where coconut has been a nutritious diet staple for thousands of years. Back in the 1930's, a dentist named Dr. Weston Price traveled throughout the South Pacific, examining traditional diets and their effect on dental and overall health. He found that those eating diets high in coconut products were healthy and trim, despite the high fat concentration in their diet. Similarly, in 1981, researchers studied populations of two Polynesian atolls. Coconut was the chief source of caloric energy in both groups. The results, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, demonstrated that both populations exhibited positive vascular health. There was no evidence that the high saturated fat intake had a harmful effect in these populations. By the end of the 1950's, public opinion had turned totally against saturated fats like butter (and coconut oil). Saturated fats were blamed for raising cholesterol, and cholesterol was now viewed as the evil enemy, the culprit responsible for the steep rise in heart disease. Butter, eggs and coconut oil were out. The new vegetable oils were in... and erroneously touted as "heart-healthy." Coconut oil continued to be demonized by the vegetable oil industry throughout the ensuing decades. Adding insult to injury, the soybean industry began to condemn the use of tropical oils, particularly coconut oil. And I'm sure you realize the reason why -- competition... and millions and millions of dollars. Unfortunately, the tropical oil industry, centered in poorer nations like the Philippines and Indonesia, could not afford to counter the negative propaganda spread by rich American industrial conglomerates. Science and good health took a back seat to profits, as they have on more than one occasion...

This is a must have item, I use it everywhere, for cooking, hair, skin and internally (one tsp. a day). Dr. Mercola has great stuff.

product is excellent, but shipping handling mars the product's taste and consistency, usually gets melted resulting in improper supplement benefits

Absolutely LOVE this coconut oil. Awesome quality, smells much like coconuts but not overpowering. I use this as a body moisturizer and it works fabulous. Coconut oil has so many great uses aside from cooking and/or baking, and this one really could be used in every way possible! Recently purchased another lesser quality coconut oil and did not compare at all to mercola, it smelled heavily of cooking oil so I repurchased more of this. Would highly recommend!

This is the second time I have bought this product. I have tried several others from local stores and none compare to this one. I highly recommend it - to eat/put in your body and to put ON your body.

We've been using this product for a few years and find it to be a good, reputable and consistently good quality item. A little expensive but it arrives quickly and well packaged. Beats buying other "lesser quality" items in order to save a few dollars.
