Coconut oil is easy to digest, produces a longer sustained energy and increases your metabolism. When taking a quality non-processed coconut oil, you can get the most benefit as its medium chain fatty acids (MCFA’s) are sent directly to the liver to be converted into energy! MCFA’s are absorbed easily in the body and can be accessed in
the brain without the use of insulin. They are able to fuel brain cells more efficiently.
On top of that, coconut oil provides the body with a consistent energy source that is not dependent on glucose reactions which can help prevent insulin resistance and Type II diabetes.
Coconut oil contains 11 different types of fat each of which does something different to the body.
Lauric acid (about 50% of the total oil content), is known to reduce candida, fight bacteria, and create a hostile environment for viruses.
It is important to include fat in our diet. There are 4 fat soluble vitamins (A,D,E,K). Hence having fat in our diet is essential. Additionally it contributes to the absorption of calcium and other minerals in the guts.
Finally, coconut oil also contains high levels of antioxidants.
