I would like to introduce you to the benefits of coconut oil. Yes I would like to tell you that certain “types” of fat in your diet are actually beneficial. Gone are the days where it is believed that eating fat is what makes us fat. The truth is that eating too much food (fat, carbohydrates, or protein), not exercising, and living a crazy lifestyle is what makes us fat. In fact, we actually need fat in our diet to be healthy and coconut oil is one of the friendly fats we can become buddies with. Let’s undress this sexy product to uncover the amazing benefits this 4000-year-old exotic oil offers and some of the incredible ways it can be used. I’ll give you a hint; it’s not just good for cooking with! 

Undressing Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is a saturated fat, which contains medium chain fatty acids. Many people hear that saturated fat is bad for us. However, this is NOT exactly true. What is bad for us is eating too much saturated fat and in the wrong form. When eaten in moderation and in balance with the other fats (monounsaturated and polyunsaturated) it is actually healthy for us and essential for good health. One of the keys to coconut oil is the fact that it contains medium chain fatty acids. In fact, did you know that the body naturally produces medium chain fatty acids, which are necessary for metabolic functions? Here is a list of some of the reasons these fatty acids can be beneficial for us:

  • They act as a nutritional source of quick energy for the body.
  • They help to improve digestion and bowel function.
  • They are a precursor in the absorption of other nutrients including vitamins, minerals and amino acids.
  • They help boost energy and endurance, which enhances physical and athletic performance.

In addition, coconut oil contains the most active fatty acids, as well as lauric, capric and caprylic acid. These fats are what give coconut oil its super protective antioxidant effects. Here are some of the benefits they provide:

  • Helps to protect the body from harmful free radicals that promote premature aging and degenerative disease.
  • Does not deplete the body’s antioxidant reserves like other oils do.
  • Improves utilization of essential fatty acids and protects them from oxidation.
  • May help protect the body from breast, colon, and other cancers.

Furthermore, the lauric acid in coconut oil is the fatty acid that is converted to monoglyceride monolaurin by the body. That is the key element that gives coconut oil its anti-bacterial and anti-viral agents that can either kill completely or stop the growth of some of the most dangerous viruses and bacteria, which help support the immune system function. Some of these benefits include:

  • Killing viruses that cause influenza, herpes, measles, Hepatitis C, SARS, AIDS, and other illnesses.
  • Killing bacteria that cause ulcers, throat infections, urinary tract infections, gum disease and cavities, pneumonia, gonorrhea, and other diseases.
  • Expelling/killing tapeworms, lice, giardia, and other parasites.

If the above doesn’t convince you, here are some additional reasons that coconut oil may be beneficial to include in the diet:

  • It’s an anti-fungal and antimicrobial, which kills fungi and yeasts that are the cause of candidiasis, ringworm, athlete’s foot, thrush, diaper rash, and other infections.
  • It may help relieve metabolic symptoms associated with chronic fatigue syndrome.
  • It may help protect against kidney and liver disease as well as bladder infections. In addition it may help relieve symptoms associated with gallbladder disease.
  • It’s known as an anti-inflammatory because it supports tissue healing and repair. Therefore, it could help relieve symptoms associated with Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis and stomach ulcers. Also, it may help relieve pain and irritation caused by hemorrhoids.

This is awesome stuff!

Does Coconut oil get hot and bothered?

Virgin coconut oil consists entirely of saturated fat. Its chemical properties are not damaged by heat, like other oils during cooking, frying, or baking. This is because it is saturated (making it more stable when heated) and because it contains polyphenols (antioxidants), which help prevent oxidation (which can result in free radical damage in the body).

Using the wrong type of oil to cook foods can result in ingesting harmful elements, which usually end up burdening our arteries and other parts of the body. This can lead to diseases such as atherosclerosis, heart attacks, and stroke. So, if cooking on higher heat, use coconut oil as a healthier alternative.

In conclusion, if you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen!
