Garden of Life Coconut Oil is one of the very first global brands that took my attention early on in my coconut oil journey.
Like many Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) products on the global market, Garden of Life Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is manufactured here in the Philippines, the world's most prolific supplier of high-quality coconut oil.
Garden of Life was founded by Jordan Rubin who is a staunch advocate of consuming "whole" foods and using "whole food" supplementation.
Jordan traveled to several countries searching for a solution to his worst case of Crohn's disease, a chronic digestive illness affecting the immune system that robbed him of any quality in the life he had left.
After conventional medicine and countless hospitalizations failed, he finally was able to fight back against his debilitating condition by changing his diet to whole foods rich in life-giving nutrients. It was just a matter of time before he discovered the greatness of coconut oil, "The Healthiest Fat on Earth."
According to Garden of Life, their VCO is made from organically grown coconuts. That's not hard to believe as almost all, if not all, of the coconuts here in the Philippines are grown without chemicals.
Traditional coconut palms are one of the most resilient trees on the planet. And even if they need chemical fertilizers, which they don't, the farmers can't afford it.
Produced using the same methods Filipino farmers have used for centuries. Garden of Life Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is non-GMO, not hydrogenated, and not RBD (Refined, Bleached and Deodorized). Garden of Life VCO is available in 16 oz. and 32 oz. jars.
