Rich in taste, not only is extra virgin coconut oil packed with natural agents such as antioxidants, that are beneficial for your health, it is also loaded with nutrients like essential proteins to nourish your skin and hair.

Extra Virgin Coconut Oil As Cooking Oil - To Boost ‘Good’ Cholesterol
Contrary to people’s expectations about the effects of consuming saturated fat, extra virgin coconut oil helps increase good cholesterol despite being high in saturated fat. Extra virgin coconut oil consists of 90% saturated fatty acids, which metabolises differently in the body compared to other dietary fats. They provide energy to your body and brain, and raise HDL (High-Density Lipoprotein) cholesterol, which is good cholesterol in your blood.
As a palatable and healthy addition to your cooking, organic extra virgin coconut oil adds a wealth of nutrients to your favourite foods and recipes, which may help boost your immune system. A strong immune system is vital to fighting against diseases; the lauric acid in extra virgin coconut oil is known to fight harmful pathogens such as bacteria, viruses and fungi.
Extra virgin oil is an excellent option for consumption because it is safe for cooking at high temperatures. Studies have shown that the saturated fats in extra virgin coconut oil maintain their structure when heated to high temperatures, thus, this makes it a safer alternative to other cooking oils.
