As health-enthusiasts, we are always on a mission to live a healthier life. That begins with the choices we make in the kitchen. What do you cook with? Chances are that you know NOT to use canola oil. Despite its fairy tale claims of aiding your brain and the affordable price, its not that great for you after all.
While olive oil is a better option, health experts believe that it’s only good for you when consumed at room temperature. Heating certain oils can destroy their beneficial nutrients. But there’s one oil that can stand up to the heat, making it the perfect cooking resource–coconut oil.
Can you believe that coconut oil once had a bad reputation? This is because of its saturated fat. But that only applies to refined and hydrogenated coconut oil that contains trans fat, which is very different than organic, virgin coconut oil. Organic coconut oil actually has numerous benefits and is really good for you.
Here are a few super cool benefits.
Immune System, Metabolism and Weight Loss
Coconut oil contains lauric acid, which can give your immune system a little boost against fighting bacteria, fungi and parasites. It can also give your metabolism a little kick, to boot. Coconut oil is gentle on digestion and can even help improve it because the oil helps our bodies absorb vitamins, calcium and magnesium.
Coconut oil is a no-carb oil and studies have shown that it can help you lose weight. This is because of its medium-chain fatty acids. They sound bad, but they’re not! These acids help burn fat and build muscle. This is the reason why coconut ingredients are a popular go-to for muscle-building protein shakes.
People don’t just use coconut oil for cooking, either! Many use it for their body as well. Coconut oil can help:
- Improve skin issues
- Improve hair condition
- Prevent gum disease and tooth decay
We love an oil with multiple uses!
So, now you get it. Organic coconut oil is great! Now try some for yourself. Try our Organic Tropic Oil, a pure, organic coconut oil. It’s a healthy alternative to butter and other oils, and does not contain any cholesterol. Tropic Oil can also help support immune functions (when used raw)!
