Of the many oils available on the market, there are none that can compare to the versatility and health benefits of Onnit Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil. Onnit Organic Coconut Oil contains a high percentage of MCTs (Medium Chain Triglycerides), which the body burns as a pure energy source far more efficiently than proteins, starches, or sugars. Contrary to what is intuitive about a creamy, delicious oil, coconut oil and its MCTs have even been shown to have benefits in helping individuals as part of a healthy weight loss program.
Why is Onnit Extra Virgin Coconut Oil the Best?
Onnit harvests their completely organic coconuts from the rich soil of the Philippines where the oil is cold pressed and extracted from the meat, maximizing the rich aroma and taste. With 64% MCTs they have some of the highest concentration of these premium nutrients helping make Onnit Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil the purest and best on the market.
With its silky smooth texture, nutritional benefits, natural anti-microbial qualities, pleasant aroma, and unique semi-solid state at room temperature, the uses for Onnit Extra Virgin coconut oil are virtually boundless:
- Replace as a butter or margarine spread on toast and muffins
- Blend in a coffee or tea for energy packed "Bulletproof" Coffee or Tea
- Use as a deeply moisturizing body lotion
- Rub through hair as an aromatic and nourishing conditioner
- Use in low to medium heat in a pan to replace butter and oils for cooking
- An excellent ingredient in baking and shortening
- Add a spoonful in a shake or smoothie for extra energy
- As a sensual massage oil, or anywhere that needs a little less "friction"
Using coconut oil as a dietary source of MCTs
As a dietary supplement, take 1 to 4 tablespoons of Coconut Oil daily. It may be used as a spread or added to salad dressings and smoothies.
Good for cooking:
Use Coconut Oil in place of butter, margarine, shortening, or other cooking oils for baking or frying in temperatures up to 350 degreesF. Here's a tasty tip that is sure to become a family favorite: drip melted coconut oil over popcorn instead of butter. It's delicious!
Using coconut oil beyond just eating and cooking
Grab your body lotion, face cream, hair conditioner, or lip balm and look at their ingredients. There is a good chance you will find a few questionable ones, including lots of unwanted chemicals. Thank goodness Mother Nature gave us coconut oil as a pure, natural alternative.
- Skin care: Use Coconut Oil as a natural moisturizing lotion. Place jar in warm water to liquify, then massage small amounts on the skin.
- Hair care: Use Coconut Oil as a natural conditioner. Place jar in warm water to liquefy, then apply two teaspoons to your hair 1-2 hours before washing.
- Note about use: Coconut Oil is solid at room temperature, but naturally melts and becomes liquid at 76 degreesF. It returns to solid when cooled.
Organic Virgin Coconut Oil: Incorporating healthy saturated fats into your diet
Coconut oil contains a high proportion of saturated fats relative to other vegetable oils. However, the lipid composition present in coconut oil promotes a healthy ratio of cholesterol that is associated with a reduced risk in cardiovascular challenges. Furthermore, coconut oil has anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties that support its use as an essential component for a healthy diet.
The numerous health benefits associated with coconut oil, particularly to the cardiovascular system, have been directly confirmed through scientific research and support a moderate use of this oil as a source of fat. In addition, the extracted oil can be used as a dietary additive or applied directly to the skin as a natural, anti-microbial agent moisturizer. Overall, the organic virgin coconut oil sold at Onnit Labs serves as a valuable replacement for many cooking oils or skin products.
