Virgin coconut oil is one of the best oils you can use (and the only oil you should use for cooking). Not only is this oil stable enough to reduce free radical-producing heat damage, but it also promotes heart health, supports good immune system health, normal blood sugar levels, and best of all, helps maintain optimal weight.
The reason coconut oil is so effective for weight maintenance is because it is high in Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs). MCT are short chain fatty acids that are a preferred source of fuel for your energy needs. They are like kindling for your metabolic furnace and studies show that MCT's can increase your metabolism.
Now instead of buying coconut oil, you can buy MCT's as a supplement in liquid or capsule form. Expect to pay $14 for 3.1 ounces (90 grams) of MCT's in capsule form (this is the equivalent of $140 if you were to buy 32 ounces). Or if you like to spend wisely, you can buy our virgin coconut oil for much less.
