Coconut Oil Products May Strengthen Immunity, Improve Digestion, and Reduce Cholesterol
There are countless coconut oil products available in the health and wellness market, so how do you know which one may be most beneficial for you? Start by choosing a product that is pure and unadulterated, such as the certified organic, Coconut Pacific virgin coconut oil we offer at South Pacific Trading Company. While other coconut products are typically subjected to heating and other processing, ours are cold pressed, so that their many healthful properties are preserved and you get the most coconut oil benefits. A majority of these benefits come from the medium chain fatty acids found in this nourishing oil. While the long chain fatty acids found in some other fats are quickly stored as body fat or deposited in the arteries, medium chain fatty acids are more readily used as an energy source, and are much easier for the body to digest.
In addition to promoting healthy digestion, coconut oil products are also believed to:
- Support the immune system
- Nourish skin and hair
- Help your body absorb important nutrients
- Reduce cholesterol levels
- Have antiviral and antimicrobial properties
Many people have also reported using coconut oil to help prevent, or even reverse, Alzheimer’s disease. Some doctors believe that Alzheimer’s symptoms develop because brain cells are being prevented from accepting glucose, which is their primary fuel source. Without this fuel, the cells eventually die. Ketones can act as an alternative to glucose, and are easily accepted by cells. The liver produces ketones when metabolizing medium-chain fatty acids, like those found in coconut oil.
Along with our nourishing coconut oil products, SPTC offers Noni products, which capture the healthful essence of the nutrient-rich Noni berry.
