What are the benefits of taking organic virgin coconut oil?
Firstly, it's a great non-dairy alternative to butter and margarine. It is also rich in medium chain triglycerides (MCTs), which are easily digestible and an excellent energy source. The medium chain fatty acid content makes the physical and chemical properties of coconut quite different from other oils and fats. Rather than storing MCTs as fat, the body tends to use them straight away for energy. MCTs also contain octanoic & lauric acids. Lauric acid is known to have antimicrobial properties, whilst caprylic acid has been shown to have anti-fungal effects.
Which brand of organic virgin coconut oil is best?
This product stands out. It is sourced from organically grown coconuts, cold pressed and retains its full coconut flavour and aroma. It is suitable for cooking and for spreading and an ideal addition to a raw food diet.
Suitable for cooking and for spreading and an ideal addition to a raw food diet. At room temperature coconut oil becomes semi-solid and can be spread on toast or crackers. If using in this way it is best kept out of the refrigerator for half to one hour to soften. It can also be used to coat meat, poultry or vegetables for roasting. It can even be added to smoothies!
