What Makes Coconut Oil A Healthful Fat?
Coconut oil benefits your health in more than one way. One factor contributing to these benefits are the MCTs in coconut oil; MCTs are Medium Chain Triglycerides and they’re a type of fat you may have heard someone refer to as one of the “Healthy Fats.”
This type of fatty acid is more easily broken down and used by your body than longer chain fatty acids, and your body uses them more like carbohydrates than fat. In simple terms, a lot of the fat in coconut oil is used for quick energy, as opposed to being stored as fat.
Another great thing about some of the fats in coconut oil is how they affect your immune system. Our bodies convert lauric acid from coconut oil into a chemical called monolaurin. Monolaurin appears to have a positive effect on our immune system as a result of it’s antibacterial and antiviral properties.
Coconut Oil For Your Hair And Skin
In addition to the health benefits of consuming coconut oil many people apply coconut oil to their hair as a conditioner, and to their skin as a moisturizer.
Coconut Oil Tastes Good
What good would coconut oil be if it tasted horrible? Luckily, coconut oil tastes GREAT and can be used in any recipe as a replacement for butter. Try it and you’ll see. I personally like to add it to some of my foods, after they’re finished cooking. It’s simple to use this way, and it’ll enhance the taste of some of your simple foods.
