Why We Love It : Well, aside from being a cooking star and the most saturated of all the oils, rumour has it that coconut oil can improve body composition. But how can that be? It all comes down to science. Studies suggest that the way medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs) are digested by our stomach, can help boost metabolism and increase energy levels. It’s no wonder it's become a staple in sports nutrition and has even been shown to improve athletes performance on the field.*

a breakdown:

The Background 

The coconut is a powerful fruit — and not just because of its epic benefits. Did you know it’s recognised as a food that has shaped civilisation? Dating back thousands of years, the coconut is still hugely prevalent in the sunny, tropical parts of our world. It sure is a coconutty world out there. 

The Active Ingredients (aka, the nerdy stuff) 

Tonik No.1 Coconut Oil contains 92% of saturated fatty acids (in the form of triglycerides); most of these (about70%) are medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs). - The major fatty acid components of coconut oil are 49% lauric acid and 20% myristic acid.- Smaller amounts of secondary fatty acids include 8% palmitic acid, 7% caprylic acid, 5% capric acid and 3% stearic acid. 

The Process  

Our Coconut Oil is obtained from the dried nut (fruit) of the coconut palm and processed through cold pressing, which ensures no heat treatments are used. Meaning? Much better for you.
