It is discovered that coconut oil also helps in bringing glow into the face and makes hair strong and healthy.

Are these all testimonials about coconut oil fake?

Many people don’t know that all these healthy benefits of coconut oil are due to ‘unique’ blend of saturated fatty acids. Although most of us believe that saturated fats are ‘unhealthy’ for our body but many medical researches proved that unique blend of saturated fats that found in coconut oil helps in making immune system stronger. The saturated fatty acids in coconut oil help in making immune system strong and protect us from different diseases and illness.

Coconut oil also helps in controlling overgrowth of yeast and fungus. In one research it is found that coconut oil helps in improving metabolism and helps in dissolving fat-soluble vitamins.

You don’t have to get ill to get all these healthy benefits from coconut oil. You can use coconut oil to lose weight, improve hair growth and enhance your face glow.

Fatty Acids in Coconut Oil:

coconut oilCoconut oil contains three blends of fatty acids that are capric acid, lauric acid and caprylic acid.

All these fatty acids are important for healthy body and brain. Individually these fatty acids are very powerful because they contain various healing abilities but collectively they are even more effective.

Capric Acid:

Capric acid is also known as Decanoic acid which is very popular for its overall health-improving properties. The word Capric is derived from Latin word “GOAT” because capric acid found abundantly in goat milk and cow milk. Additionally, Capric acid also found in coconut oil and palm oil.

Capric acid when combines with lauric acid and caprylic acid creates High Density Lipoprotein (HDL) or ‘good’ cholesterol. This ‘good’ cholesterol lowers the risk of thickening of the artery wall (Artherosclerosis), a potentially fatal disease with no symptoms.

Capric acid also converts into microcaprin which fights off with different viruses. Microcaprin controls overgrowth of yeast bacteria and helps in releasing more energy that helps you to remain active all the time. Some scientists believe that long term use of capric acid helps in weight loss as well.

Lauric Acid:

Lauric Acid is very commonly found in the production of soaps and cosmetics. Once its digest, it converts into monolaurin which contains same anti-fungal properties that are found in female breasts milk. Monolaurin is very useful is protecting and controlling viruses such as influenza and herpes.

Caprylic Acid:

Caprylic Acid founds in most Candida diet because its anti-fungal properties combat with yeast infection bacteria and stops them from growing. Caprylic acid found in goat milk, cow milk and coconut oil. Caprylic acid is very useful in controlling stomach acidity and make immune system strong that protects from viruses and infection.

Medium-Chain Fatty Acids (MFAs):

Around 75% of fatty acids found in coconut oil are medium-chain fatty acids which are smaller and lighter than large-chain fatty acids and dissolve quickly. It is believe that coconut oil is the richest source of medium-chain fatty acids. Normally vegetable oil and seed oils contain large-chain fatty acids that convert into fats. While medium-chain fatty acid in coconut oil dissolves quickly and convert into energy.

Coconut oil boosts metabolism by providing more energy and by stimulating thyroid glands .The more efficient metabolism you will have the faster your body will burn fat.

Saturated Fat and ‘Good’ Cholesterol:

Saturated Fats vs Unsaturated FatsYou may be wondering why we are talking coconut oil is healthy when it contains saturated fats? We all know that there are countless studies that proved saturated fat is unhealthy for human body. Isn’t it?

Natural occurring saturated fats that is present in coconut oil is healthy for you but the artificially created saturated fat (also known as trans fat) is not. Oil producing companies normally include hydrogen atom in natural vegetable and seed oils to make them live longer. But during this hydrogenation process they convert healthy and natural saturated fats into unnatural and unhealthy saturated fats destroying the reputation of natural oil such as coconut oil.

For years (since the launch of hydrogenation process) many doctors, scientists and fitness experts blamed saturated fats for health issues such as obesity and cardiovascular conditions. On other hand Pacific Islanders using natural and unprocessed coconut oil is almost every meal and yet there are very few incidence of cardiovascular conditions found in them. This makes us believe that all three fatty acids that are found in unprocessed coconut oil create good cholesterol and is actually healthy for our body.

So the myth of coconut oil is unhealthy for your health is just intentional clouding over the artificially created saturated fat is unhealthy for you. Natural coconut oil is extremely beneficial for your body and its natural substance is rarely found in other vegetable or seeds oil.
