CRAZY FOR COCONUTS :Guapo Edition: 2017-03


CRAZY FOR COCONUTS As you may know, Coconut Oil has become quite a trend at the moment. But, Why?? Numerous times a week I will hear people mention Coconut Oil and wonder why it is so beneficial and some trying to figure out why it is so expensive compared to other oils. This may read as a "list" rather than an "article" but for the space available we will mention the numerous benefits and if you would like to read in more detail, you can either contact me direct or follow the Blog Post @ www.healthbymichi.com After so much research, they have finally uncovered the secrets to this amazing fruit; namely healthy fats called medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs). Around 62% of the oils in coconut are made up of 3 healthy fatty acids and 91% of the fat in coconut oil is healthy saturated fat. Most of the fats that we consume take longer to digest, but MCFAs found in coconut oil provide the perfect source of energy because they only have to go through a 3 step process to be turned into fuel vs. other fats go through a 26 step process. Unlike long-chain fatty acids (LCFAs) found in plant based oils, MCFAs are: Easier to digest Not readily stored as fat Are anti-microbial and anti-fungal Smaller in size, allowing easier cell permeability for immediate energy Processed by the liver, which means that they are immediately converted to energy instead of being stored as fat. According to medical research, coconut oil benefits the body in the following ways: * Improves Energy and Endurance * Improves Digestion, Reduces Stomach Ulcers & Ulcerative Colitis * Reduces Symptoms of Gallbladder Disease & Pancreatitis * Improves Skin Issues (burns, eczema, dandruff, dermatitis, and psoriasis) * Prevents Gum Disease and Tooth Decay * Prevents Osteoporosis * Improves Type II Diabetes * Weight loss From Losing Body Fat to Building Muscle. * Benefits Hair Care * Anti-aging * Hormone Balance * Proven Alzheimer’s Disease Natural Treatment * Prevents Heart Disease and High Blood Pressure * Can Aid in Curing Urinary Tract and Kidney Infection & Protects the Liver * Coconut water also helps hydrate and support the healing process. * Reduces Inflammation and Arthritis * Cancer Prevention and Treatment: * Immune System Boost (antibacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-viral) * Improves Memory and Brain Function I hope you found the information interesting! I look forward to hearing from you all, if you would like more details or the full article with a deeper understanding of why it is an oil we should all incorporate into our diets.
