Fats and Nutrition: The Value of Fats and Why Coconut Oil is THE King
Make no mistake. Fats and nutrition go hand in hand. And no other dietary fat can surpass the health benefits of coconut oil. None!
God did not create the nutrient called Fats just so man can demonize it. Every food the Almighty created benefits humankind. He said so, Himself!
Here are just some of the reasons why this nutrient is essential for optimal health. Fats:
- are the main component of your cell membranes
- waterproof and isolate your body
- are crucial for the absorption and use of the fat soluble vitamins A, D, E, K
- function as energy reserves
- many many more…
Now before you consume all the Fats you can handle, know this. Not all Fats are the same! Sorry for shouting…
Chances are, some 98-100 percent of the fat you consume are composed entirely oflong chain fatty acids (LCFA). There are only a few dietary fats that contain medium chain fatty acids (MCFA).
Although both are fat molecules, MCFAs are very different from LCFAs. Their absorption, transport, metabolism and uses are completely different.
For one, LCFA-fats like soybean, olive, corn, sunflower and lard need digestive enzymes from the pancreas and bile from the gallbladder to be digested. MCFA-rich coconut oil DOES NOT! MCFAs go straight to your liver to help power metabolism. This means immediate benefits and considerable less work for your body.
Coconut oil is more than two-thirds MCFAs, making it nature’s richest source of these relatively rare and highly beneficial fatty acids.
Fats and nutrition are intimately linked for optimum health so don’t let anyone convince you otherwise. Fats are an important part of your diet and the humble coconut oil IS their king.
