Benefits of Coconut Oil: The Simplest and Easiest Way to Supercharge Your Health
The health benefits of coconut oil are so plenty, people rightfully call it, “The Drugstore In A Bottle.” You will not find a dietary oil or fat that can beat what coconut oil can do for your overall well-being. You won’t.
Coconut oil is nature’s richest source of Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) or Medium Chain Fatty Acids (MCFA). These special fat molecules are the “muscle” behind coconut oil’s supreme disease-fighting characteristics.
MCTs digest like carbohydrates so they rarely get deposited in your fat cells. They provide a quick source of energy and revs up your metabolism. MCT-rich coconut oil is pro-energy, not pro-fat!
From making skin and hair young-looking, to taming deadly pathogens, coconut oil uses are wide-ranging. MCFAs so generously found in this humble tropical oil can help:
- Prevent liver disease
- Promote weight loss
- Reduce chronic inflammation
- Ward off skin infections
- Prevent gingivitis and tooth decay
- Control dandruff
- Relieve symptoms of gallbladder disease
- Protect from cancer
- Slow down aging
- Prevent diabetes
- Fight osteoporosis
- Relieve pain caused by hemorrhoids
- Expel tapeworms, lice and other parasites
- Kill viruses that cause AIDS, hepatitis C, SARS…
- Prevent heart disease, atherosclerosis, high blood pressure and stroke
- … and much, much more …
Much of the benefits of coconut oil would not have been possible if not for MCTs or MCFAs “rarely” found in nature.
MCFA-loaded coconut oil destroys viruses, bacteria, parasites, fungi, worms, yeasts, etc. Of all the harmful organisms coconut oil can kill, lipid-coated bacteria and viruses appear to be the most vulnerable. Here’s a short list:
Human immuno deficiency virus (HIV-1)
Hepatitis C virus
Herpes Simplex Virus 2 (HSV-2)
Measles virus (rubeola)
Streptococci A, B, F and G
At 92 percent saturated, coconut oil is highly resistant to oxidation (spoilage) and free-radical destruction. It doesn’t get rancid easily. Unlike other vegetable oils like soybean and corn oils, properly prepared coconut oil can stay fresh for at least three years, even without refrigeration.
Coconut oil functions as an antioxidant protecting against damaging free radicals that are often produced by toxins.
These are just some of the benefits of coconut oil, The King of Oils. Take it by the spoonful or use it in place of other oils. Either way, you’re on your way to better health.
