The Health Benefits of Coconut Oil

Opened coconut


Recently my daughter has been cooking with coconut oil. When I asked why coconut oil, she replied because it’s healthy. So with that answer I began to investigate, and here is what I learned.

Coconut Oil contains a unique combination of fatty acids with powerful medicinal properties. Although coconut oil is high in saturated fats, it’s not the same as the saturated fats in cheese and steak. The fatty acids are metabolized differently, and are known to have therapeutic effects on brain disorders like epilepsy and Alzheimer’s.

The healthiest populations are the ones that consume coconuts. Studies show that populations in the South Pacific who eat 60% of their calories from coconuts are in excellent health with no evidence of heart disease.

Coconut Oil can increase your energy, helping you burn more fat. The Lauric acid in coconut oil can kill bacteria and help fight viruses.

It can kill hunger making you eat less without even trying, and can improve cholesterol levels lowering the risk of heart disease.

I also found coconut oil to be the best choice for frying foods, as it will hold the highest temperatures.

Coconut Oil is one of the foods that can be classified as a “superfood”. The unique combinations of fatty acids have positive health effects, including fat loss and better brain function. These benefits have been confirmed in human studies.

Don’t just take my word for it. Here is the link to my source of information. Please take some time to check this out, as you will find more details of these amazing benefits.

These studies were conducted by professionals in their field, It's always a good idea to check with your doctor first on the use of coconut oil.

As Always Thanks for stopping by, let me know if you have ever used coconut oil.

  1. Coconut oil reminded me of my childhood years in the Philippines when sitting next to my granny making coconut oil. I know how to make coconut oil as I learned it from my granny and my mother but I have not made it here in my adopted country as I seldom see coconut here. I have seen coconut oil though in the supermarket. I think I´ll try cooking again with coconut oil. Thanks for the informations Sam. Happy weekend!

  2. Great article, I've personally seen some amazing benefits with coconut oil. Anyone interested in herbal medicine should definitely check out the ebook "10 super herbs that will change your life forever". You can download it for free here: tensuperherbs.com. I tried a few of the herbs from that book and my life has changed completely :)

  3. Growing up in Goa, India, I remember my Avo (grandma) cooking food, especially frying, in coconut oil. My mom used it too in some of her cooking. Coconut as a whole is a staple for cooking in Indian/Goan cuisine. Enjoy your weekend Sam!

  4. I always grab the olive oil because I love it. I need to grab the coconut oil more often and take advantage of the super-food effect. Thanks for the info, Sam!

  7. I have purchased coconut oil...but never use it regularly enough to form an opinion. I bought it for my cooking and to feed a bit to the dogs. Willy loves it on his food... when I remember. I just don't remember to use it.
