Virgin Coconut Oil Rich in Medium Chain Fatty Acids (MCFAs)

MELT Organic's luscious, healthy butter improvement features virgin coconut oil.

    BOISE, ID, December 08, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Organic virgin coconut oil - possibly the healthiest, most versatile, unprocessed dietary oil available, is the key ingredient in MELT Organic's Perfect Blend of healthy oils. Each serving of MELT Organic is an excellent source of Medium Chain Fatty Acids (MCFAs) - the "good fats" - that our bodies burn as energy instead of storing as fat. MCFAs are readily utilized by the liver, which leads to greater energy expenditure and enhancement of thermogenesis. While MCFAs occur naturally in butter, milk, yogurt and cheese, the highest levels are found in virgin coconut oil and palm fruit oil.

Virgin coconut oil is a stable, healthy saturated fat that does not elevate undesirable (LDL) cholesterol and contains absolutely no trans fats or cholesterol. Virgin coconut oil is also nature's most abundant source of lauric acid, shown to support the healing of digestive disorders, support overall immune functions, and help fight bacterial, viral, and fungal infections. The MCFAs in virgin coconut oil have been shown to boost metabolism, promote healthy weight, increase thyroid activity, strengthen the heart, and protect the liver from the toxic effect of drugs and alcohol. MCFAs are vital for absorbing nutrients like Omega 3s and Vitamins E, A, D, and K.

MELT Organic Chief Science Officer, Cygnia Rapp, states "Because virgin coconut oil has a similar melt point to butter, MELT Organic healthy butter improvement is also ideal for baking and cooking, making it an easy and delicious way to incorporate healthful MCFAs into your daily diet."

Famed cardiothoracic surgeon, Dr. Oz, an ardent proponent of virgin coconut oil's health benefits, not only recommends consuming one to two tablespoons daily(1) but also recommends MELT Organic as a healthy butter alternative(2).
