Sunfood Nutrition’s Coconut Oil is made from certified organic coconuts grown in the Philippines. Coconut Oil/Butter consists over 90% raw saturated fats. They are a rare and important building block of every cell in the human body. Unlike long-chain saturated animal fats ,which have been attributed to creating poor health, Coconut Oil contains healthy, healing, medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs). MCTs support the immune system, the thyroid gland, nervous system, skin, and provide energy. The MCTs in Coconut Oil help increase metabolism promoting weight loss. MCTs are also known to have antiviral, antimicrobial, and anti-fungal properties. For this reason, Coconut Oil/Butter is one of the best dietary fat sources for an individual to ingest.
