Benefits of Cooking With Refined Coconut Oil

The benefits of coconut oil finally returned to widespread use with the help of a 1981 study that examined two Polynesian atoll populations. 

Some of its health benefits are:

– Provides support for your immune system

– Provides instant energy

– Good for your skin

– Supports thyroid gland function

– Improve heart health

The main saturated content of organic refined coconut oil is lauric acid, a medium-chain fatty acid (MCFA) that actually raises levels of HDL (good cholesterol). It is the high levels of lauric acid as well as vitamins E, K, and minerals that give this oil its super strength.

Most vegetable oils consist of long-chain fatty acids (LCFA) and are unhealthy because LCFAs are difficult for the body to break down and difficult for the pancreas, liver, and digestive system to process. As a result, it is stored as fat and deposited in your arteries.

On the other hand, this oil is great for weight loss as it helps burn the necessary fat. what your body needs gives you an instant burst of energy, builds stamina, and improves digestion. 

Make sure you buy the right coconut oil by buying it raw or extra virgin and preferably organic. Refined coconut oil does not have the above benefits. Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil guaranteed no bleaching, is made from fresh coconut vs. dill (dried coconut), is made without heat treatment, contains no chemicals, and is made from non-GMO coconut.
