Coconut oil has been called a "superfood" for its array of healthy benefits, including weight loss, immune system enhancement, and brain health.
Coconut oil contains important fatty accids called Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT's). MCT's are metabolized differently than other fats. They are transported directly from the digestive tract to the liver, where they are more likly to be used as fuel and simultaneously raise the metabolic rate slightly, resulting in less fat available to be circulated throught the body and deposted in fat tissues. Consuming coconut oil has also been shown to control the appetite by increasing satiety - leaving you feeling fuller for longer periods of time after meals and decrease the chances of over eating.
Creative Bioscience only uses organic, non-GMO, virgin (meaning cold pressed and unrefined) coconut oil.
