Coconut Oil

Cocos nucifera

Coconut Oil is extracted from mature coconuts and it contains healthy fats in the form of medium chain triglycerides (MCT's). It is extremely easy to digest, putting less strain on your digestive system and is not stored as fat, but instead quickly converted into energy by the liver. Coconut Oil supports healthy thyroid function and metabolism which may result in weight loss, as well as regulating glucose metabolism in type II diabetes. It is being studied for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease by providing a readily available ketone based energy source for the brain. It contains lauric acid, capric acid and caprylic acid, responsible for it's ability to combat fungal infections such as Candida albicans. Coconut oil may also be used topically for skin rashes, ringworm, athletes foot, eczema, psorasis or simply for healthy skin care maintenance. These therapeutic benefits are primarily found in Virgin Coconut Oil. The Coconut palm tree grows in tropical climates around the world.
