Coconut Oil is a very popular oil commonly used in dietary supplements, cosmetics and for cooking. Research suggests that Coconut Oil gets most of its health benefits from its high fatty acid concentration. In particular the medium chain triglycerides is thought to carry much of the health benefits in Coconut Oil. The Virgin Coconut Oil used in our product is organic, cold-pressed and unrefined. It also comes in vegan capsules that are made from plant cellulose instead of the commonly used gelatin. DEVA Vegan Virgin Coconut Oil is 100% animal free, and guaranteed for purity, freshness and labeled potency.
