Healthy Heart: About 45% of Pure Coconut Oil is made up of medium-chain fatty acids (MCT - medium-chain triglycerides) such as Lauric Acid. These MCTs don’t have same negative health consequences as resulting from long chain fatty acids found in other Saturated fats such as Animal Fats(obtained by eating red meat etc). The MCTs in Pure Coconut Oil do not raise levels of bad cholesterol in the blood; in fact, they raise levels of good cholesterol, which is good for heart health.

Strong Immunity: Lauric acid present in Mother’s milk protects baby from microbes. Pure Coconut Oil is the highest natural source of Lauric acid which has anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties, thus provides immunity. Thus, Pure Coconut Oil protects people the way mother’s milk protects babies. Pure Coconut Oil is the protection gifted to humankind by mother nature!
