Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil

As a health-conscious person, I always look for companies and products that are organic or holistic in nature. Thanks to the world of cyberspace we have access to some of the top-notch organic companies in the world. Many years ago it used to be that I had to order products from the US but thankfully Canada is fast becoming a haven for high quality organic and nutritional products.

T.T. Ultimate Products Inc. is a family-run Canadian business that offers us clean organic foods and supplements. I was delighted to find them online. I’m a huge fan of Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil and have used it in the past. It’s so wonderful we can now get this product in Canada without paying huge shipping costs from the US.

Coconut oil is one of those superfoods but not all coconut oils are equal, you have to read the labels and make sure it’s not refined. Unrefined coconut oils are pure coconut oil without any additives, bleaching or deodorizing. Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil is the highest quality organic unrefined coconut oil on the market. It’s one of the first virgin coconut oils to be exported to the US from the Philippines. It’s made the time-honored traditional way by hand, like many generations ago. No machine or other substances are used in the extraction. They use the wet-milling process of extracting the oil from fresh coconuts. Only fresh-picked coconuts are used within 24 – 48 hrs. The result, a very high-quality coconut oil.

I call it a superfood because of its nutritional value and the high levels of antioxidants it contains. “Research shows that the medium-chain fatty acids found in coconut oil boosts the body’s metabolism, raises body    temperatures, and helps provide greater energy which can lead to weight loss.

This versatile oil can be used for frying, cooking, baking and I like to put a tablespoon in my smoothies every day. You can replace any cooking oil, butter or margarine with coconut oil and it tastes so much better.

I love the flavor of this delicious oil, it’s creamy, rich and has a delightful coconut taste. If you’ve tried other coconut oils you will definitely notice the difference in taste, texture, and clarity. It melts quickly and does not smoke at high temps like other oils. It will last on your shelf for 2- 3 years without refrigeration, so it offers great stability with no fear of it going rancid before use. We go through a lot so it will never go bad in our home.

Tropical Traditions coconut oil goes far beyond the kitchen. I use this oil as a moisturizer every evening. You don’t need very much and it’s very soothing and hydrating on dry and itchy skin. I also use it as a hair treatment, I massage the oil into my scalp and leave it on all day. If you have chapped lips just apply a small amount of Tropical Traditions coconut oil and you will feel instant relief. I also use this oil for oil pulling. It’s a natural remedy procedure of pulling toxins out of your body. You swish oil around in your mouth for 10 – 15 minutes and then discard it into the garbage. I also give my cats a small amount every day on a dish. It’s great for their digestive system and gives them gleaming fur. They also never get furballs. There are so many uses for this fabulous oil and only using the best product like Tropical Tradition will you get the best results.
