Coconut oil is extracted from the meat of mature coconuts and contains MCFAs (medium fatty acids), a kind of fat that works differently from other fats. MCFAs are absorbed in the body’s cells where they are readily available to be burned up to provide energy. The fats, unlike other fats, have a lesser likelihood of being stored as body fat.
Several studies show that using coconut oil can help keep the fat off while at the same time protecting the body from insulin resistance. This means that coconut oil is great for weight loss and lessening the risk of diabetes.
Coconut oil is one of the safest and best oils for cooking since MCFAs don’t turn to dangerous hydrogenated fat as they are resistant to heat. You can use the oil for baking or frying as the healthier alternative.
This book will teach you how to use the magic of coconut oil to your benefit, whether to help you lose weight, maintain healthy hair and skin, or even to potentially improve your mental faculties. The uses and benefits of coconut oil are varied and powerful.
