If you’ve always used the same old cooking oil then it’s time to give coconut oil a try.
Coconut oil comes from the flesh of the fruit not the milk.
It has been used for many years in different parts of the world because it provides so many health benefits. People from Asian and Pacific countries have used coconut oil in their cooking and traditional medicines for many years and rarely suffer from a lot of the diseases which plague our western society, so they must be on to something!
Coconut oil is high in saturated fats like butter but it is completely different as it contains medium chain triglycerides, which are absorbed by your liver, the same as a carbohydrate. Butter contains long chain fatty acids which are deposited into your fat cells and you burn this off a lot slower than the medium chain triglycerides.
It is a common misconception that all fats are bad; this is so far from the truth; fat isn’t bad, they types of it you eat are.
The right fat is such great source of energy for when you exercise regularly.
Coconut oil increases your metabolism by reducing any stress on your pancreas which then helps to reduce weight; it’s also so easy to digest and keeps your thyroid in check too.
As it’s so easy to digest if you suffer from any stomach problems then this is the cooking oil for you. It will help your body absorb vitamins, minerals and amino acids.
When you cook with coconut oil you will find it much tastier than any other cooking oil that you use, especially if you have a sweet tooth because it tastes so good.
It can be used in savory dishes as well as sweet dishes and it makes scrambled eggs taste divine.
I recommend that you give coconut oil a try and a guarantee that once you do you won’t go back to your old cooking oils.
