COCONUT OIL BASICS
Understanding the basics leads to understanding the benefits.

Coconut oil is conditionally an essential fatty acid. This means its special fatty acids can be made by certain parts of the body, but it must first be AVAILABLE in the diet.

63% of its saturated fatty acids are comprised of the healthy MEDIUM CHAIN FATTY ACIDS (MCFAs)

These MCFAs are an instant source of energy, easily digestible and do not contribute to weight problems and blood cholesterol levels.

 

 



Lauric Acid (48% of the  MCFAs) is converted by the body into monolaurin which has the ability to destroy lipid coated viruses, lipid coated bacteria; and exhibits strong anti-fungal properties, without harming the friendly intestinal bacteria, hence supporting a healthy intestinal environment

As the MCFA molecules are smaller, they require less energy and fewer enzymes to break them down for digestion, promoting improved digestion and nutrient absorption.

MCFA improve the utilisation of the EFAs and protects them from oxidation. These latter fatty acids are necessary for prostaglandin formation and visual function (Millbrook flaxseed oil).

Virgin Coconut Oil has been safely used for thousands of years by people in the tropics/sub-tropics. Ironically, it is since the use of modern manufactured polyunsaturated oils, e.g. margarines, where degenerative diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and cancer have struck these communities. Scientific evidence shows that using Virgin Coconut Oil does not raise serum cholesterol.
