Yes, You Are Told That Coconut Oil Is Good But Something Is Hidden From You!

Lately, there are all kinds of coconut products on the market, oil, soya, water, butter, flour, cream and milk, sauce and even shreds. Coconut is popularized by far and all the options with it are limitless.

We all know that it is tasty and the smell is really nice, but coconut is popular for other reasons too. Scientist even limited the reasons to 127!

The coconut tree is called also tree of life in Southeastern Asia, Philippines and other tropical regions in the world. Today, even more than 1500 studies showed how coconut oil is beneficial.

This oil, also known as C. Nucifera is of the palmae family Aercaceae, and this is a branch of the subtype Cocoideae. The coconut flesh is full of healthy fat acids and the fat content alters due to processing and types.

When we discuss medium chain saturated fat acids that is equal to 90% of the content, but also this goes for a small serving polyunsaturated and mono-unsaturated fats.

The best part is that the medium chain fat acids MCFAs absorb easily in our system and are digested properly; their movement is free in the blood flow barriers in unbound shape, this is basically better neurological process overall and a lot of energy for us.

Keep in mind, the unrefined or virgin coconut oil is healthy and not expensive, and is natural.

Virgin coconut oil

  • Non toxic
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Anti-carcinogenic (stops spreading of cancer and improves immunity)
  • Antioxidant (stops forming of free radicals and such damage)
  • Increases absorption to nutrients (easily digested, fat based vitamin creation – Vitamin K, E, D, A)
  • Anti-microbial (fights infections, viruses, bacteria, yeast, parasites and protozoa)
