Coconut Oil

Coconut oil (also called coconut butter) has less calories by weight than any other fat source. This oil has been shown to have powerful anti-viral, anti-fungal, and anti-microbial effects, and can used in food or topically.

Because coconut oil is relatively stable at high temperatures, and does not create trans-fats when heated, it is the best oil to use when cooking food. Always choose cold-pressed coconut oil and store it in a dark container or cabinet.
