Why use Organic Coconut Oil

There are some very interesting benefits to become healthy and fit that you would not believe would come from using a cooking oil such as organic coconut oil. Many who learn of these health benefits are often pleasantly surprised. You wouldn’t think that something that’s 100% natural and inexpensive can have so many uses and be so good for you.

I hope after reading this article you will be tempted to do some more research on this amazing miracle food.

When getting ready to choose your organic coconut oil, make sure you choose one that’s certified organic so it is free of pesticides, GMO’s, and hexane. You can easily find organic coconut oil in any organic food store or online. The preferred coconut oil must be extra-virgin, cold pressed, unrefined, unbleached, and non-deodorized. It will say all of this on the container. Because it’s organic, it may cost a little more, but you want to pay the extra few dollars.

I looked up what GMO and hexane are. GMO stands for “genetically modified organisms”. It turns out that growing evidence connects GMO’s with health problems. In the food industry, hexane is a solvent used to extract the vegetable oil from plant seeds. The hexane is removed from the oil, but there is always the chance that some is left. Hexane is toxic and exposure to large amounts of it can cause neurological damage. Rest assured, there is no hexane in organic coconut oil.

Have you ever heard of the coconut oil myth, where it’s described as being unhealthy? Many still believe this to be true. When I first learned of organic coconut oil and its many health benefits, I was eager to tell my sister about it. Her reply was, “Oh no, I’ve heard that it is very bad for your cholesterol and for heart disease.” I had to explain to her that it was actually good for your cholesterol and in preventing heart disease. The reason behind this was because research was done on coconut oil that went through hydrogenation and not in its pure, organic form. Anything that is hydrogenated is not at all good for you. Organic coconut oil is a tropical oil that is very good for you.

The reason it’s good for you is mainly because of its medium chain fatty acids which are easily digested and not stored in the body as fat, but as energy. In fact, organic coconut oil is even used for weight loss and energy, helps control your blood sugar, and reduces cravings for carbohydrates. Many have had successful weight loss with the daily use of it. The main reason it’s so good for you is because it contains lauric acid which is present in human breast milk. Lauric acid in breast milk is responsible for boosting the baby’s immune system and it has this same effect on adults when consumed through the coconut oil.

There are many ways to add coconut oil to the diet. You can use it for frying, baking, or adding to tea or a smoothie. If you don’t mind the taste of coconuts, you will truly enjoy it. I dissolve a teaspoon of organic coconut oil each morning in my coffee. I just add my cream and sugar and my coffee has a coconut flavor to it. There are many reasons to consume it, but mine is for energy in the morning and digestion. Before I found out about coconut oil, I suffered from low energy and constipation. Not any more, thanks to my organic coconut oil!!Save
