Coconut oil is naturally rich in Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) and Caprylic Acid which are scientifically proven to aid the body through antioxidant, antimicrobial, anti-fungal and antibacterial properties, help control cholesterol levels, promote weight loss
Capric acid and other medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) in coconut oil can increase 24-hour energy expenditure by up to 5% percent.
Lauric acid forms a monoglyceride called monolaurin which kills bacteria, viruses, and fungi helping to fight off infections
MCT’s in coconut oil help to reduce appetite.
Improved cognitive function. MCTs digested in the liver creates ketones that is the energy readily available to the brain without the need for insulin to be present therefore more efficiently fuelling the brain.
Helps reduce infections. MCT’s are a natural antibiotic which disrupts the lipid coating on bacteria and killing them. MCT’s can also digest a specific bacteria, helicobacter pylori, known to increase the risk of stomach cancer.
High in natural saturated fats. Coconut oil increases good cholesterol (HDL) can even help convert bad (LDL) cholesterol into good cholesterol. Increasing the ratio of HDL to LDL reduces the risk of heart disease.
Coconut MCT’s are very easily digested and actually improves digestion by helping to absorb fat-soluble vitamins, calcium, and magnesium. Coconut oil can improve gut health by destroying bad bacteria and candida.
High levels of antioxidants reduce inflammation.
