Research Shows Virgin Coconut Oil in MELT Organic's Perfect Blend Supports Healthy Weight

Studies reveal health benefits of lauric acid in virgin coconut oil.

    BOISE, ID, January 08, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Eating MELT Organic's Perfect Blend of healthy oils, featuring organic virgin coconut oil, supports healthy weight when replacing butter or traditional cooking oils in your daily diet. Organic virgin coconut oil is possibly the healthiest, most versatile, unprocessed dietary oil because it is the most abundant source of lauric acid. Many consumers have discovered the health benefits of cooking with virgin coconut oil instead of traditional cooking oils.

"Maintaining a healthy weight begins with making better choices every day," says MELT Organic CEO, Meg Carlson. "Simply replacing butter and traditional cooking oils with MELT Organic spreads for baking, cooking and spreading is a great start. MELT is far more versatile than pure virgin coconut oil and tastes great spread on your morning toast, bagel or toaster waffle.

Peer-reviewed studies are revealing that unprocessed, non-hydrogenated virgin coconut oil has emerged as a functional food, particularly when combined with healthy oils high in Omega 3s that are not genetically modified. Extensive dietary research indicates eating organic virgin coconut oil may boost metabolism, increase thyroid activity, promote weight loss, and provide optimal nutrient absorption. Each variety of MELT Organic features the Perfect Blend made from the healthiest fruit- and plant-based organic oils: virgin coconut, palm fruit, flaxseed, sunflower and canola. MELT Organic's creamy blend of these oils provides the ideal 2:1 balance of Omega-6s to Omega-3s.
