Coconut Oil

Concerned about the trans fats on the label?  Well not all Trans Fats are bad for you!!

MCT (medium Chain Triglycerides) are a special class of fatty acids, shorter in length, more easily absorbed, digested and utilized as energy than conventional, long chain fatty acids. Since the 1980’s, MCT became a favorite energy source for athletes including those who participated in endurance sports. MCT are safe alternative to fast fueling carbohydrates – providing fast energy without spiking insulin, which also make them useful as a fuel substrate for weight loss prevention of diabetes and other related health problems. MCTs have been also attributed to be a thermogenic fuel food, increasing the body metabolic rate and accelerate fat burning. Best MCTs source is coconut oil. There are other health benefits of coconut oil, including hair care, skin care, stress relief, maintaining cholesterol levels, weight loss, increased immunity, proper digestion and metabolism, relief from kidney problems, heart diseases, high blood pressure, diabetes, HIV and cancer, dental care, and bone strength.

As a “functional food,” coconut oil is now being recognized by the medical community as a powerful tool against immune diseases. Several studies have been done on its effectiveness, and much research is currently being done on the incredible nutritional value of pure coconut oil.
