Product Description

Product Profile

Coconut oil has been traditionally used in Asian cuisine as cooking oil, as well as for imparting a delicious flavor characteristic of coconuts. In addition to its culinary contributions, coconut oil also contributes toward a healthy diet, primarily due to its medium chain triglyceride(s) (MCT) content. Coconut oil contains over 50% of its fat content as MCT.


Distinguishing Features:

  • Organic extra virgin Coconut Oil
  • Only non-GMO coconuts used
  • Great source of MCT
  • 100% unrefined and expeller pressed
  • Solvent free processing
MCT Metabolism

From a nutritional standpoint, MCT have traditionally been regarded as biologically inert substances, merely serving as a source of fuel (i.e. calories) that is more efficiently metabolized compared with long chain triglycerides (LCT) found in typical food oils. This quality of MCT has been shown to offer benefits depending on the health situation. MCT do not require the intestinal lymphatic system or bile salts for absorption, and hence they are referred to as “quick fuel.”

For this reason, MCT are often given to people who have difficulty absorbing conventional long chain fatty acids. MCT do not contain essential fatty acids, and therefore they are normally only substituted for up to 50-70% of dietary fat. However, some evidence suggests that the absorption of long chain triglycerides may be improved if combined with MCT. MCT are metabolized primarily in the liver. The safety of MCT consumption in humans is not a concern, as several clinical trials have shown no adverse effect from levels of 1 gram per kilogram of body weight per day.

Heart Function

We owe a portion of our understanding of the effects of MCT on the heart to the citizens of Sri Lanka. In Sri Lanka, a significant amount of dietary fat consists of MCT from coconut oil, and data indicate that the citizens of Sri Lanka score particularly high in the area of heart-health. This realization led nutritional and medical researchers to look at the effects of coconut oil MCT in more depth.

Feeding MCT to rats resulted in animals with lower body weights, a smaller amount of fat deposits and excellent survival rates.* Maintenance of a healthy body weight supports heart and artery function as we age. MCT consumption is also associated with healthy levels of serum and liver cholesterol within a normal range.* Furthermore, in a double-blind study, 1.7 g of MCT daily at breakfast significantly promoted healthy cholesterol levels within a normal range compared to that of the LCT group at 8 weeks.* Other studies have shown positive effects on triglycerides, within a normal range.* MCT have physical and metabolic properties that are distinct from those of long-chain fatty acids, making them a readily available cellular energy source.* These properties have been used advantageously in clinics for more than 50 years in people who are either undernourished or possess lipid absorption and long-chain fatty acid oxidation defects. In this latter contingent, nutritional interventions with MCT have been shown to promote healthy heart function.* Current research supports the notion that suboptimal heart function is associated with heart-energy deficiency, and that MCT can be helpful in providing support.*

Healthy Body Mass

Some research suggests that MCT may support metabolic rate and energy expenditures in the body when substituted in the diet for other types of fat.* MCT may induce satiety, leading to decreased consumption of calories.* Increased metabolic rate and decreased caloric intake may lead to a decrease in body fat. MCT contain 6 to 8.5 kcal per gram.

In one study conducted in a group of 40 subjects, randomized into 2 test groups, MCT or corn oil was administered as part of daily food intake for 90 days. The MCT group showed a significant reduction in body weight. In a double-blind crossover study, subjects were asked to keep their usual lifestyle, including diet and physical activity while consuming MCT as part of their diet. The results indicated that body fat mass was significantly lower after 3 weeks when consuming MCT compared to soybean oil. These results suggest that coconut oil, and the MCT found within, may have a role in the promotion of weight management.*

I take this and I also give to my dog who has had yeast issues, and I read that coconut oil helps rid the body of yeast. I love that they are all natural. Great product. I have chronic dry skin and recently moved from a humid climate to a very dry one. I can tell a different in my skin and hair. I love the added benefits to weight, diabetes, blood pressure, kidneys, even though I don't have issues with that, but it's a nice way to prevent.

I have been taking these pills for the past month and have lost 10 pounds. My skin is softer and free from breakouts, hair softer, and my cracked dry heels have improved 75%. I was skeptical but it has proven to be a good product. I just ordered 2 more bottles because I don't want to run out. I have had no side effects.

It almost brings tears to my eyes how much this has helped me in just 3 days. I was suffering with serve brain fog. My head would feel numb and I couldn't process simple information. I went to the Dr. And mentioned I had read coconut oil could help. She stated that she had heard interesting things and recommended I give it a try. I am 1000% improved. I take this 2x a day. I would highly recommend this to anyone, especially if you are struggling with mental clarity.

My 86 year old Dad has had Alzheimer's disease for about five years. I read about a doctor that also has a father with Alzheimer's. He took him off all meds and only gave him Fish Oil/Krill Oil, Coconut oil and Lecithin and said he is doing wonderful! My Dad has been on all three for about two years now, and he is not getting any worse...which I take as a blessing!

My Mother, ninety-one years old, showed gradual signs of dementia until December 2012. After that, her memory failed her within a week to the point where she did not even know where she was. I had read of coconut oil taken in large amounts to provide relief from memory loss and thought I would try Jarrow's formulation. I knew that a much larger amount is required, but I knew my Mother would not take that large quantity. I make sure she takes two or three softgels daily along with her other meds and have seen slow but steady improvement over the last few weeks. She is now able to go to lunch downstairs at her retirement community on her own once again. I hope her improvement continues.

Very good pills, although their size looks intimidating, they are still easy to swallow. And you only need to take 1 a day - I used to take 2 500 mgs.

I was looking for a way to get my coconut intake while on the go and at work. I love these softgel pills. The main reason I chose them was the fact that there are no chemicals added. These are great for when you are travling and want to take your coconut oil with you. I love this product.
