Simply Amazing Coconut Oil

coconut_oilPopulations that eat a lot of coconut are in excellent health. Western nations pale in health compared to populations that eat a large percentage of calories from coconuts. Coconut oil is used extensively in tropical countries like the Philippines and India.

Coconut oil is different from other cooking oils because it contains a unique composition of fatty acids that are 90% saturated making coconut oil highly resistant to oxidation at high heats. Because of this, it is the perfect oil for high-heat cooking methods like frying.

Although saturated fats were demonized unfairly a few decades ago by science gone wrong, new studies show no association between saturated fat and heart disease.

Coconut oil consists almost entirely of Medium Chain Triglycerides, fatty acids that travel from the digestive tract to the liver as ketone bodies; they provide a quick source of energy.

Ketone bodies also provide energy for the brain. They have proven useful against epilepsy and other disorders.

Medium Chain triglycerides consistently been shown to promote weight loss in both animals and humans.

The fatty acids in coconut oil lead to greater satiety and increase energy expenditure compared to long chain fats.

There is also considerable evidence that coconut oil can help in the weight loss war by actually helping you lose weight and is kind to your muscles because a greater proportion of the weight lost comes from fat.

A recent study of 40 women with abdominal obesity concluded that coconut oil reduced waist circumference in (compared to soybean oil) as well as other health issues.

Coconut oil is also a great protector against different infections. The 12-carbon Lauric Acid is the most abundant fatty acid found in coconut oil and is broken down into a compound called monolaurin in the body.

Both monolaurin and lauric acid can kill microbes like fungi, viruses and bacteria.

This jewel of nature also benefits hair (one of the best natural nutrients for your hair), skin care, offers stress relief, maintains cholesterol levels, helps with weight loss, boosts our immune systems, and regulates digestion and metabolism. The best part about coconut oil is that it tastes great and works with nearly any food.

It also improves the ability of our body to absorb important minerals including calcium and magnesium necessary for the development of bones making it very useful to those prone to osteoporosis. Coconut oil also works to stop tooth decay. It facilitates the absorption of calcium…an important mineral making our teeth strong.

Bottom line is coconut oil can help you lose weight if you substitute it for other calorie sources. Replace butter or vegetable oils with coconut oil in your recipes. When using coconut oil for topical purposes like hair, you can melt it (if it is solid) in the sun or by soaking in warm water. When melted, apply it to your hair and skin.

Switching your bad fats to coconut oil is just one of the many things you can do to improve your health and healthy is what you need to be if you want to lose weight and keep it off forever.
