List of Ingredients
100% Certified Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
Organic Fiji Coconut Oil is 100% organic. Coconut oil is commonly used by dieters following a low carbohydrate lifestyle to combat constipation associated with extremely low carbohydrate levels. The product description for Organic Fiji Coconut Oil claims several health benefits aside from the known laxative effect. These benefits include supporting metabolism and promoting weight loss. Organic Fiji does not mention any clinical studies or research findings that support these claims.
Organic Fiji Coconut Oil also claims to instantly increase energy. In basic terms, this is correct because coconut oil is 100% fat and fat provides 9 calories of energy per tablespoon, but the dieter will not feel a sudden boost of energy from eating coconut oil.
Weight loss foods and supplements need to offer the dieter support for their weight loss efforts. This support could come from high fiber levels in food to reduce hunger or high protein levels to stave off that need to snack between meals. Coconut oil by Organic Fiji does not offer either of these benefits.
Organic Fiji sells 13 ounces of coconut oil for $16.00 plus shipping and handling. Organic coconut oil can be purchased in the grocery store for far less money.
