        • Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is among the healthiest, most versatile dietary oils in the world. An excellent cooking oil with its natural coconut flavor and aroma, we think it is simply the best tasting most aromatic coconut oil on the planet.
        • Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is a stable, healthy saturated fat that is naturally free from trans-fatty acids. It contains medium-chain fatty acids, such as lauric acid, which have shorter chain length than most animal derived long-chain saturated fatty acids. Consumption of coconut oil at recommended levels, along with a healthy diet and lifestyle, helps maintain already healthy levels of cholesterol.
        • Unlike refined coconut oils, Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is not hydrogenated, bleached, refined or deodorized. It is produced using the same methods farmers have used for centuries. Meat from only the freshest, organically grown coconuts is shredded and cold-pressed to create coconut milk, and then fermented to extract the oil.

      Directions
      May safely consume 1-4 tbsp per day. Use in cooking, baking, frying, or in smoothies. Can be used in place of other oils including butter.

      Bought a jar of this last month based on user reviews, and love it ! I went ahead and bought another jar this month. I initially started reading about coconut oil for my dogs, but found out that it could be useful for me too. My dogs absolutely love the flavor and so do I. When it is hot the coconut oil is clear and in an oil state, but if it gets cold it will turn white and will have more of a paste or butter texture and look to it. When you open the jar you can instantly smell a really lovely coconut aroma. In its clear, oil like state it has very little taste and it feels more like water in my mouth rather than an oil. It's very 'lite' tasting. In it's more solidified white state, it has a pasty texture, but it still tastes good. I think I might prefer (and my dogs too) the pasty texture, because it feels more like I'm eating coconut flesh. I've cooked chicken with it, I've eaten it straight from the jar, I've given it to my dogs to eat, I've rubbed some on my dogs neck for a skin irritation, & I've rubbed a little on my own skin for fun. I really like it, and if you are thinking about getting a coconut oil then I highly recommend buying this one. It's a good quality oil for an amazing price ! This is 100% organic, Extra Virgin, and NOT refined.

      Bought this product for a family member suffering from dementia. Haven't used it long enough to know if it is working however, putting this product in a smoothie causes the oil to solidify thus giving it a waxy feel, not an attractive quality. Using it in a room temp smoothie or in oatmeal works better.

      Comments about Garden of Life Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil - 16 Fluid Ounces Oil:

      I read that there is something in coconut oil that helps Alzheimer's victims. Big pharma is checking it out. I also read that saturated fat is important for brain function.

      At 67 I think I am mentally sharper than anytime before.

      I was having trouble staying asleep at night so I tried taking 2-3 tablespoons of Coconut oil before bed. I sleep much better now.

      It's worth a try, but remember this stuff is potentially fattening! I put on a few pounds. I will have to exercise more and cut a few hundred calories off my diet somewhere else.

          Comments about Garden of Life Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil - 16 Fluid Ounces Oil:

          Light, Pure, Clean taste. A must have in the kitchen. Too expensive & nice to use on skin (buy a lower grade for that) & save this one for eating & cooking. I have tried about 4 different brands & this one is the very best in my book! I use it on my toast, top my vegetables, cook & top organic pop corn, sauté foods, etc in place of butter. Any where you would use butter try this one. I seldom use butter anymore. It is a healthy saturated fat that is perfect for high heat & will not acquire free radicals as there are no more seats on that "chemical bus"! Use Olive Oil as a back up for salads,& very low heat on cooking foods as high heat for Olive oil will denature it & free-radicals will get on the empty seats of that bus! Find another coconut oil as a second backup for skin, hair, large batches of frying donuts for example, or frying in quantity.

            I use this coconut oil almost every night all over my body as well as my face. after applying even though i smell a hint of coconut i smell more like a cheese snack instead of a coconut.this is my second time purchasing this brand of coconut oil but the first one was more coconut smell, not sure if its because i purchase it in stores of the shelf. because the second purchase was online. i love purchasing items from the vitamin shoppe.My body loves it and gettin excellent results from using it, softness, skin becoming more even n its very moisturizing. i will continue to purchase this coconut oil from Vitamin Shoppe but i'll rather go in store to see if the scent changes.

              It didn't taste as oily as I thought it would. I read where it has a good kind of Omega oil and it is helpful to your body, so I tried it. I would definetly purchase it again, and try to incorporate into more of my foods. I have another one that is more for baking and cooking and not organic like this one. Organic is best for just eating.

                I plan on using this for lots of different things; using it as an oil for cooking not so much unless i add it into things; I don't fry/sautee or bake items. HOWEVER I was concerned that taking the oil would be disgusing; it is an 'oil'. It dissolves in your mouth pretty much right away; tastes absolutely delicious; and only a barely noticable oily type film in the mouth. Can't wait to use it more!! Only giving it 4 stars since i just opened the jar haven't noticed any 'benefits' yet.

                Comments about Garden of Life Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil - 16 Fluid Ounces Oil:

                I simply love it on pretty much everything! The flavor brings me back to Hawaii, its delicious on toast, on muffins, on cooked veggies or add a little when cooking chicken soup or when cooking pasta. As I am eating it I know that this is a fat that actually helps digest other fats that I may be eating and it tastes so good at the same time! You can fry an egg with it, just use it instead of butter or under nut butters or on sandwiches.
                Personally I can only recommend it whole heartedly!

                          I use it in my hair and on my body. I love the smell. The smell is not over powering so when I use it I can wear perfume with it.

                          Such a wonderful taste and a fat that is healthy for you! I love it and use it in many different ways: sometimes I spread it on a piece of pumpernickel, or I add it to cooked veggies. Then I fry an egg with it or add a spoonful to soup I'm cooking. There is no limit as to how you can use this healthy fat, it actually helps to burn off other fats in your body! I couldn't be without it any more!

                            I initially bought your coconut oil because I had an allergic reaction, and a friend of mine suggested I try it to control the rash. To my surprise, it worked almost immediately! It is a great moisturizer and keeps my skin baby soft. Haven't tried it for cooking yet, but I'm told it's terrific, especially for seafood. Hmmmm, coconut shrimp...my favorite!!

                                This coconut oil is so deliciously nutritious it can be used internally and externally. I like to spread it on Kombucha squash, toast, sweet potatoes, and pancakes. It is also useful for hot oil treatment for the hair and to apply to moisturize skin.

                                  I am actually eating a few teaspoons a day to help me thru a thyroid condition. New meds had me so tired I could not get out of bed. Oil allowed energy to flow quickly. Able to do my walking routine with energy and a smile. Would recommend this product for anyone needing energy while taking a thyroid supplement.

                                    I started using Organic Coconunt Oil in Sep 2013 and I love the way it feels as a moisturizer on my entire body. I use it from my face to my feet. I also use it as a moisturizer on my scape and hair. I then use a seperate jar so that I may take a table spoon each morning. It yields great health benefits to my hair,nails, and skin. And I use it to prepare all my meals with. And my college daughter has also noticed the benefits to her hair and skin.

                                      I use this product to help my dogs with dry skin. I add a measured amount to one meal for each dog daily, and I also rub a little bit of the oil onto their skin as well. So far the results are good. I am planning to incorporate coconut oil into some of my recipes and possibly into my skin care routine as well.

                                        This is a great product. I have been using this brand for over 6 years now.I see result in my skin, joint, energy level. It does take a few weeks to see result. I put a tablespoon in my morning coffee or spread on toast. I highly recommend this brand. I love that it does smell like coconut. Some brands don't smell this good.And Vitamin Shoppe alway provide excellent service.

                                        I use it in my beauty regime with my moisturizer.
                                        I've had it for awhile now and it's still look as full as when I bought it. I use it twice a day.

                                        I dont like the smell, but then again, I dont like coconut.

                                          I use it all over after my shower and it has really helped my skin to feel much softer. It isn't greasy like others and doesn't stick to nor stain my clothes or sheets. Great for my hair, too!
                                          It is lso great for cooking or a tbsp. in hot cereal.

                                            Extra virgin coconut oil is very healthy saturated fat. I like a glass jar.

                                                I love this coconut oil - like that it comes in a glass jar and is organic. Use it mostly to stir fry vegetables, and mix it in with my hot cereal

                                                  Garden of Life's Coconut oil is excellent. The smell and taste is rich. I purchased the oil to use for my hair as well as for nutrients. I pour a tsp in my hand for my hair and take another tsp down the hatch. My only suggestion would be if the company would make the bottle drip proof like my olive oil bottles.

                                                    After hearing about all the uses Coconut oil is good for, I couldn't wait to order it. I was not disappointed. It smells great, tastes great, and I use it as a facial moisturizer and makeup remover. It easily wipes away even my waterproof mascara and soaks into my skin well if I put it on right after showering. I am so glad I found this product. I love the smell of coconut but I only put it on at night since I don't want to smell like a tropical drink all day. ;)

                                                      Use this product to cook with, coconut oil is by far the healthiest and safest oil to cook with (high heat), it does not break down. This coconut oil has a mild coconut taste, not to strong. Use this product to oil pull, look it up online, great for your mouth's health! Use this on my skin, feet, hair, etc. Look into the benefits of coconut oil. Its awesome!

                                                      A: Coconut oil can be applied to hair as a pre-conditioner to heal damaged hair. Work the coconut oil into damaged ends and leave an hour to overnight. Wash hair.

                                                      Be sure to use organic unrefined coconut oil. It is great for cooking, baking, and as an all over body moisturizer. It can heal dry heels and elbows. Coconut is antifungal, antibacterial, and antiViral. it can be eaten or mixed into coffee, hot chocolate or smoothies.

                                                      Is this coconut oil unrefined and unprocessed? Is it really 100% pure?

                                                      Best Answer: I can only go by the label from the manufacturer. It says "cold pressed" or not heated before having oil pressed out; extra virgin, meaning the oil is from the first pressing of the product, not a subsequent repressing to get extra oil out; it says 'unrefined'. What does this mean? I don't know exactly. Also, the label says "no GMO', or nothing genetically modified about it; etc.
                                                      I only know that it makes wonderful pastries, smells good, and my dermatologist recommends it for my skin, also. So, I like it.

                                                      Best Answer: I highly recommend using coconut oil but have never tried it in hot tea or coffee. It doesn't have much of a flavor and I can't see why you would want to put an oily substance in the hot drinks. It is very good to use to sauté foods with as it has a high heat tolerance.

                                                      I heard that you can just use a tablespoon and swallow?

                                                      Best Answer: Yes, you can definitely swallow a tablespoon of coconut oil. I use it for "oil pulling" (you can do a Google Search on this, if you don't know what oil pulling means), which I have found keeps my gums very healthy and helps whiten my teeth. Rather than just swallowing a tablespoon of the coconut oil, I use it in the place of butter on foods such as cooked vegetables, etc. It is quite tasty, but I think mixing it with other foods is a better idea than just swallowing it plain.

                                                      Is this coconut oil processed in a facility that also processes egg, tree nuts, or peanuts? My son is allergic to those foods.

                                                      Best Answer: Having read the label thoroughly, there is no indication in their statement that egg, tree nuts or peanuts are involved in their processing. "Unlike refined coconut oils, EXTRA VIRGIN COCONUT OIL is not hydrogenated, bleached, refined or deodorized. It is produced using the same methods farmers have used for centuries. Meat from only the freshest, organically grown coconuts is shredded and cold pressed to create coconut milk and then fermented to extract the oil." I am also sensitive to nuts and this product doesn't seem to bother me any. Hope this helps.

                                                      Best Answer: i not very experienced at this but here goes. i just get a spoonful of, usually congealed, coconut oil and put iit in my mouth. it melts quickly at body temperature. you just swish it around in your mouth for about 15 minutes then spit it out. i haven't made it that long yet. it will gradually whiten your teeth and it apparently helps to remove viruses and bacteria. i also scramble eggswith it, add to oatmeal, spread on bread and just put a spoonful in my mouth, let it mealt and swallow it. i like the taste. i've read quite a few articles, including one from a doctor, that says coconut oil helps reverse the effects of dementia & alzheimers.

I'm guessing hexanes would be used in one of the afor mentioned processes. It doesn't specifically say hexane free but from the description I believe that it is. We've used this oil for years and find it to be delicious! All the best.

                                                      Best Answer: According to the information provided on the product website, it is not hydrogenated or refined. It is very healthy and good for you. You can eat it or use it on your body. You can cook with it but keep the temperature low or moderate. High temperatures will make it smoke. I fry chicken and fish in it and it is wonderful.

                                                      the ounces are stated in "fluid" ounces. The previous product Item #: VS-2522 / 1669001 stated "solid". What is the difference in products?

                                                      Best Answer: It comes in a solid form, but because it is technically an oil, it is measured in fluid ounces. The measurement is the same either way. I always melt it before I use it to cook with. It liquifies even if you rub it between your fingers.

                                                      Will the coconut oil capsules work for type 2 diabetics?

                                                      Best Answer: Coconut oil is certainly supposed to help people with type 2 diabetes, but I don't have personal experience. I am not sure you can get enough coconut oil from the capsules unless you take several a day. Easier would be to cook with 1-2 Tablespoons of coconut oil with everything you cook, put it on toast, etc. Mushrooms absorb oil very well. Be sure not to heat it over 350 degrees F. Another thing would be to make smoothies with coconut oil - melt it first. But adding coconut oil to smoothies is an easy way to get it.

                                                      looking to do a healthy liquid diet for one week—chatted with a gal and she said you guys don’t have anything per se—just stuff for me to add to homemade…If I did almond milk, ice, fresh (or frozen) fruit, cinnamon, flax seed/chia and then maybe apple cider and coconut oil--would you rec'd anything else other than that?

                                                      Best Answer: Coconut oil is a solid at room temperature and below, so adding it to a cold liquid might not be a good idea.

                                                      I've read Coconut oil is good to loose weight?

                                                      Is this a product packed in a glass jar? What about the larger size? I've been reading that oil should only be stored in glass, regardless of "no BPA" claims ...

                                                      Thanks!

                                                      will this increase my cholesterol level?
                                                      Patty K on Feb 13, 2013
                                                      Best Answer: Mary Newport, M.D. does case studies. In her article COCONUT OIL DIETARY GUIDLINES AND SUGGESTIONS-updated Sept 2009, she states "hydrogenated coconut oil can increase cholesterol. Therefore look for non-hydrogenated coconut oil with no transfat." The web site for more info is www.coconutketones,com

                                                      Coconut oil is wonderful for dogs also. THE WHOLE DOG JOURNAL had an article in their Oct 2005 issue.

                                                      Hope this helps you Patty.
