Jarrow Formulas Extra Virgin Organic Coconut Oil (Cocus nucifera) is expeller-pressed from the fresh flesh (copra) of the coconut palm, and does not utilize any solvents in the manufacturing process. Coconut Oil is a rich source of Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs), such as lauric acid (C-12) and caprylic acid (C-8). Lauric acid is used to synthesize Monolaurin, an immune-supporting monoglyceride. MCTs offer a rapid source of energy, since they are directly transported into the liver without going through the lymphatic circulation.
Coconut oil is stable even during long periods of storage. Because its melting point is 75-76° F, Coconut oil can be used in both liquid or solid forms, making it ideal for cooking and baking.
Best kept refrigerated after opening.

Great Source to combat dry skin, internally
I use a 1/4t-1/2t in my hot tea, instead of a sugar substitute. This works as a great internal aid to combat dry skin, especially when taken with a ceramide. I recommend this product.
