Tresomega® Nutrition coconut oil is made from 100% cold-pressed young organic coconuts with an exotic, tropical coconut flavor. Virgin, or unrefined, coconut oil is extracted from the fresh meat of the coconut. Virgin Coconut Oil has the flavor and aroma of coconuts and the refined has a mild aroma and taste. Because this is a fast, simple process, the resulting product does not require bleaching or chemical additives, and retains the distinct flavor and scent of the coconut.
Tresomega® Nutrition coconut oil contains 63% MCTs, or medium-chain triglycerides, which are easier to metabolize, meaning that the body burns them as fuel rather than storing them as fat. Coconut is an excellent source of healthy fats. One such healthy fat is lauric acid, which contains antiviral, antimicrobial and immunity-boosting properties, and has even been cited as an element that can aid in the body’s fight against cancerous cells.
The MCTs found in Tresomega® Nutrition coconut oil are easier on the body in the process of metabolization, meaning that the body burns these MCTs as fuel rather than storing them as fat. While most foods are metabolized through digestion, MCTs are instead actually processed in the liver. They are easier for the body to digest and provide an excellent source of instant and lasting energy for the user.
Tresomega® Nutrition organic coconut oil is a gluten-free product, meaning that it contains none of the gluten protein molecules found in grains such as wheat, rye and barley. Recent studies have suggested that gluten is unhealthy for everyone, rather than simply those with gluten-intolerances, and may be a leading cause of lethargy, bloating, brain fog and more negative symptoms. Tresomega® Nutrition organic coconut oil is also packaged in a peanut-free facility that is very conscious about allergen contamination.
