Choosing Among The Possibilities
Popular brands of virgin coconut oil are Nature’s Way EfaGold, Nutiva, Now Foods, and Garden of Life. The difference between these brands is that some, such as Nature’s Way and Nutiva, are 100% organic while others are not. If a product is not labeled as organic, it could mean that fertilizers and pesticides were used during the growth period of the coconuts.
The best brand of organic virgin coconut oil is a personal choice. There is not much use in using non-virgin oil, but the choice between virgin and extra virgin is left to personal preference. It is said that extra virgin oil is more potent and therefore results are seen more quickly with its use, but these claims have not been substantiated by science. Organic versus non organic again is more of a personal choice. Those concerned with green living will most likely go for organic, and it may be beneficial to be 100% sure your oil doesn’t have any nasty chemicals in it. However those who consider the cost difference too great may be willing to go with non-organic.
The bottom line, really, is the best brand of coconut oil is the one that works! User reviews on the internet may be able to help you make the decision, as you can get a tiny preview of the product before purchasing it. But sometimes a little trial and error may be necessary, as well.
