Barlean’s, a leading manufacturer of Omega-3 supplements, now includes 100% USDA organic and cold-pressed Virgin Coconut Oil among their award winning, great tasting products. Barlean’s Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is so delicious and popular that it was featured in the June 2012 issue of First for Women, a national best-selling magazine reaching over 3.5 million readers.
Coconut Oil is a great source of MCTs (medium-chain triglycerides), which can immediately be used by your body as energy. The MCTs in Barlean’s Organic Virgin Coconut Oil are lauric acid, caprylic acid and capric acid. These MCTs allow coconut oil to be metabolized like a carbohydrate by the body to create energy immediately.
Barlean’s Organic Virgin Coconut Oil also helps to support healthy hair and skin, and tastes wonderful. Coconut oil’s emollient properties may also help protect the skin against the drying effects of exposure to wind and sun, help soothe sunburned skin and serve as a natural alternative to expensive face creams and moisturizers.
Barlean’s Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is a great alternative in cooking to processed oils, butters and margarine as it does just fine on high heat and may also be used as a spread. You can add it to smoothies, oatmeal, and it is even wonderful on its own with dark chocolate!
For a healthy, delicious treat, mix together 2 parts melted dark chocolate chips with 1 part coconut oil and dip your favorite frozen fruit in it! It’s so decadent, you won’t even think about how good it is for you!
Barlean’s Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is great for the whole family – whether it is being eaten by the tablespoon, added to the morning smoothie, used to sauté vegetables for a healthy island flavor, slathered on the skin to moisturize or used as an organic alternative to tanning lotion.
