Coconut oil


Contains Healthy Fatty Acids

 Coconut oil is high in certain saturated fats.  These fats have different effects in the body compared with most other dietary fats. The fatty acid in coconut oil can encourage your body to burn fat & they provide quick energy to your body & brain. They also raise HDL (good) cholesterol in your blood, which may help reduce heart disease risk.

 Boost Heart Health 

Coconut is an uncommon food in the western world, with health-conscious people being the main consumers. Researchers reported that Coconut Oil is not only good overall health but also very low rates of heart disease.

Encourage Fat burning

While some people think obesity is just a matter of how many calories someone eats, the source of those calories is important, too.  Different foods affect your body & hormones in different ways. The MCTs in Coconut Oil can increase the number of calories your body burns compared with longer chain fatty acids.

 Antimicrobial Effects

Lauric acid makes up about 50% of the fatty acids in Coconut Oil.  When our body digests lauric acid, it forms a substance called Monolauri. Both lauric acid & Monolaurin can kill harmful pathogens, such as bacteria, viruses & fungi.

 Raise HDL (Good) Cholesterol

 Coconut Oil contains natural saturated fats that increase HDL (good) cholesterol levels in your body.  They may also help turn LDL (bad) cholesterol into a less harmful form. By increasing HDL, many experts believe that Coconut Oil may boost heart health compared with many other fats.

 Protect your Skin, Hair & Teeth 

Coconut Oil has many uses that have nothing to do with eating it. Many people use it for cosmetic purposes to improve the health & appearance of their Skin & Hair. Oil pulling, which involves swishing Coconut Oil in your mouth like mouthwash, may kill some of the harmful bacteria in the mouth.  This may improve dental health & reduce bad breath.

 Help To Reduce Harmful Abdominal Fat

As some of the fatty acids in Coconut Oil can reduce appetite & increase fat burning. It may also help to lose weight. Abdominal fat, or visceral fat, lodges in the abdominal cavity & around our organs.  MCTs appear to be especially effective at reducing belly fat compared to LCTs.  Abdominal fat, the most harmful type, is linked to many chronic diseases.
