Extra virgin coconut oil is the richest source of lauric acid, which our body then turns into monolauric acid.
Extra virgin coconut oil or palm kernel oil are abundant sources of MCT – Medium Chain Triglycerides
- which promote and accelerate the absorption of protein, minerals and vitamins
- Direct energy without fat storage
- Helps prevent a catabolic situation during training and competitions
- Ideal during the ‘Weight Gain’ and ‘Lean Body’ diets
- Increases your testosterone levels for more muscles, less fat and a higher libido.
