It destroys bacteria such as staphylococcus aureus which often cause these problems. Virgin coconut oil has been found to have antifungal properties that allow it to kill the candida fungus.

1. Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil

Tropical

Tropical Tradition ultra cold-pressed extra virgin coconut oil is the best brand of coconut oil you can find on the market today for several reasons: 1) it won’t leave a residue in your pans, 2) it’s flavorless so you can use it to sauté vegetables and cook with other foods without affecting their taste and 3) has an amazing light silky texture that melts at 76 degrees Fahrenheit as opposed to other brands of virgin coconut oil which can be above 100 degrees by the time they dissolve. Tropical Tradition coconuts are hand-picked, husked, and soaked in water to naturally release the oil found inside, crudely filtered into various jars with cold-pressed olive oils surrounded by dry ice (carbon dioxide) to maintain freshness and then packaged through an elaborate filtering procedure that leaves only light-colored refined product vs many other producers of Virgin Coconut Oil which require chemical solvents for removing their inferior grades for olive-like refined coconut oil marketed to mainstream America and then bleached white in many cases.

The virgin coconut oil market is full of brands that make unverified health claims, which can be misleading to consumers. There are many PCB and pesticide residues in these oils, to begin with, that may present long-term health consequences. Always choose a healthy certified organic brand from clean reliable sources whenever possible such as Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil.
