Coconut Oil

Why Coconut Oil?

Extensive research shows that coconut oil is one of the healthiest oils to eat. It is known to help reduce bad cholesterol and assists weight loss. Famous researcher and nutritionist Mary Enig, PhD has long advocated the benefits of coconut oil, claiming that coconut oil is beneficial for both the prevention and treatment of heart disease.

Additionally, coconut oil provides a source of antimicrobial lipid (fats) for individuals with compromised immune systems.

Coconut oil also soothes the intestinal system and has greater solubility in the body than other fats, placing less burden on the liver, pancreas and digestive system as a whole; making it a great option for sufferers of Irritable Bowel Syndrome or Crohn’s Disease.

Lauric acid is a fatty acid found in large quantities in both coconut oil and mother’s milk, and it possesses strong antifungal and antimicrobial properties. Therefore, the nourishing and protective properties found in mother’s milk can actually be provided for us as adults in coconut oil.
