Superfood – Coconut Oil

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Truth and Liberty Blog | January 30, 2019

Coconut oil, as you might imagine, is extracted from the meat of mature coconuts which are harvested from the coconut palm.

Hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils (aka trans fats) like margarine, Crisco and other vegetable-based shortenings increase bad cholesterol, decrease good cholesterol, lead to inflammation in the body (a known cause of heart disease), and contribute to neurodegenerative disease.

Vegetable oils are highly concentrated sources of omega-6 but can actually cause an imbalance with omega-3 levels. Also many vegetable oils are made with GMO soy or corn and have been exposed to glyphosate, a weed killer you don’t want in your body.

Benefits - Coconut oil contains good fats that are great for brain health and provide instant energy for brain cells. (Our brains are about 60 percent fat btw!) Coconut oil has been linked to cognitive improvement in Alzheimer’s patients. Also known as copra oil, this superfood helps HDL (good) cholesterol levels, has anti-inflammatory properties and is anti-fungal. One study shows that it can help prevent macular degeneration. Coconut oil can decrease appetite, helps digestion and some studies show boosts metabolism and can help target belly fat.

Coconut oil is also naturally resistant to spoiling, which is one of the stated benefits of the hydrogenation process.

Ways to enjoy - If you substitute virgin organic coconut oil for olive oil, canola oil, vegetable oil it will add a coconut flavor to your food. Here is a recipe for coconut lime tilapia I plan to try out this week. Also try adding coconut oil to your coffee, tea or morning smoothie. Happily this ingredient is great for baking – you can even add to your favorite chocolate recipe. For those who don’t like the flavor you can buy soft gels and take it as a supplement. For those who do you can even add it to oatmeal or yogurt…you get the idea, be creative!
