Health benefits realized from combination of virgin coconut, flax seed, and other healthy oils.
Online PR News – 26-October-2013 – (October 25, 2013) BOISE, IDAHO – – Melt Organic’s Healthy Butter Substitute, Rich & Creamy Melt® Organic, is great tasting and supports healthy weight when replacing other fats in your daily diet. Each variety of Melt Organic features a Perfect Blend of the world’s healthiest oils which provide the body with rich sources of Omega-3 and Medium Chain Fatty Acids.
Organic virgin coconut oil (VCO), the featured ingredient in each of Melt Organic’s healthy butter substitutes, is possibly the healthiest, most versatile, unprocessed dietary oil. VCO is a stable, healthy saturated fat that does not elevate undesirable (LDL) cholesterol. VCO has no trans fats or cholesterol and is rich in plant-based, healthy saturated fats called Medium Chain Fatty Acids (MCFAs), which are not immediately stored as fat but are used for energy. It is also nature’s most abundant source of lauric acid, shown to reduce symptoms of digestive disorders; support overall immune functions; and it helps fight bacterial, viral, and fungal infections. Extensive dietary research indicates components found in organic virgin coconut oil may boost metabolism, increase thyroid activity, promote weight loss, and provide optimal nutrient absorption. Additionally, coconut oil is ideal for baking and cooking due to it having a similar melt point to butter.
The health benefits of flaxseed oil are myriad because it is one of the healthiest and best sources of Omega‐3s available. 60 years of clinical research has linked a chronic deficiency of dietary Omega‐3 essential fatty acids to life‐threatening diseases such as obesity, some forms of cancer, heart disease, and diabetes type II. Flaxseed oil has the highest plant-based concentration of Omega‐3. Organic flaxseed oil’s health benefits include reversing the Omega‐3 deficiencies common in the American diet. Organic flaxseed oil is an essential component of Melt Organic and ensures that every serving delivers the perfect balance of Omega 6s and Omega 3s, a ratio of 2:1.
“Our Perfect Blend of fruit- and plant-based oils is based on the premise that healthier forms of saturated fat – and especially virgin coconut oil (a ‘good fat’) and flaxseed oil – are essential parts of an optimal diet.” explains Melt Chief Science Officer, Cygnia Rapp. “Plus, our Perfect Blend maintains an optimal ratio of Omega 6s to Omega 3s of 2:1.”
