Coconut oil is about 50 percent lauric acid, a rare medium-chain fatty acid found in mother's milk that supports healthy metabolism and is now being studied for its anti-fungal, anti-viral, and anti-bacterial, health-protecting properties. Overall, coconut oil contains 92% saturated fats, and only 1% Omega-6.

FYI: For those who are allergic to peanuts, the coconut oil is packaged in a facility that also packages peanut oil. Unfortunately, I wasn't aware of this before purchasing (I'm allergic to peanuts), so never got to use the product. It may be helpful for Well.ca to list this info in the "please note" section.
