Why does MELT Organic feature Organic Virgin Coconut Oil as a primary ingredient?
Our organic Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) is possibly the finest and most versatile dietary oil in the world. Its unprocessed saturated fat is a robust source of Medium Chain Fatty Acids (MCFAs). More than any other vegetable oil, VCO is the optimal natural source of lauric acid. Virgin Coconut Oil is rich in plant-based, good saturated fats like the Omega 3, Omega 6 and Omega 9 fatty acids found in fish. Research shows the MCFAs in virgin coconut oil can boost metabolism, promote healthy weight, increase thyroid activity, strengthen the heart, protect the liver from the toxic effect of drugs and alcohol, support the healing of digestive disorders, and are vital for absorbing nutrients like Omega 3s and Vitamins E, A, D, and K.
