Garden of Life Coconut Oil
Made the Traditional Way

Garden of Life Coconut Oil 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 achieve a great taste and aroma.

The Garden of Life company was founded by Jordan Rubin, one of America’s most recognized and respected natural health experts. He's the author of the New York Times best-seller, The Maker’s Diet, as well as the author of 19 other health-related titles.

Garden of Life Coconut Oil has all the qualities you'd want in a superior coconut oil: 100% vegetarian, non-GMO, certified USDA Organic. Garden of Life Coconut Oil is not hydrogenated, bleached, refined or deodorized.

How to Use Garden of Life Coconut Oil

There are several ways you can add Garden of Life Coconut Oil to your everyday life, and it really is easy! Coconut oil is stable even during long periods of storage, and needs no refrigeration. Because its melting point is 76° F, it can be used in both liquid or solid forms. It has a neutral flavor that makes it ideal for use in frying, cooking and baking.

Here are just a few suggestions:

  • use it in any recipe that calls for vegetable oil, shortening or butter
  • it makes a healthy butter replacement on bread or vegetables; if you add a bit of salt to it, you won't be able to tell the difference
  • coconut oil is the best oil for making popcorn; it stands up to high temperatures as well as any other fat
  • use it externally as an oil for your skin, hair care and massage

You can even eat coconut oil right out of the jar. It gives you a quick burst of energy without creating a spike in your blood sugar levels.

I like to add coconut oil to my smoothies — it gives them a rich, creamy texture, and keeps me feeling satisfied for hours. See my page on how to make a smoothie the healthy way, where I reveal my secrets for creating incredibly healthy smoothies.

Why is Garden of Life's
Coconut Oil Good for You?

There's a significant property of coconut oil that distinguishes it from other sources of fat and contributes to the health benefits of coconut oil. These are the medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs) in coconut oil. Research has demonstrated that these medium-chain fats actually protect against heart disease — and may one day even be used as a treatment to cure it!

Coconut oil is nature's richest source of healthy medium-chain fatty acids. By contrast, most common vegetable or seed oils are comprised of long chain fatty acids (LCFAs). These are now known to actually promote heart disease.

Coconut oil has been found to have many other properties that are better for your heart health than other dietary oils. Besides improved cholesterol readings, studies have found lower body fat levels, reduced tendency to form blood clots, and higher levels of antioxidants throughout the body.

Other top health benefits of coconut oil fall into these general categories:

  • promotes weight loss
  • improves energy levels and endurance
  • strengthens your immune system health
  • supports healthy digestion and metabolism
  • keeps your skin and hair healthy and young-looking
