Organic Cold Pressed Coconut Oil

Coconut Oil is back in favour and the world of nutrition has at last embraced this tropical fruit with open arms. From weight loss benefits to protecting your immune system here are some fabulous reasons why coconut oil has become the king of the oils and also has some great uses.

Perfect for cooking

It is heat stable oil-  so its safe oil to cook with and doesn’t form harmful trans fatty acids when exposed to very high temperatures. The most beneficial grade of coconut is organic virgin oil so if you’re preparing recipes that require high temperatures you should consider coconut oil for this type of cooking.

Controls your weight

One 2009 study looked at the weight loss link between women’s consumption of coconut oil and found that it reduces abdominal obesity. Researchers discovered coconut oil is easy to digest and also protects the body from insulin resistance. To try coconut oil for weight loss start by adding one teaspoon to your diet and gradually work your way up to four teaspoons per day.

Eases digestion and bloating

If you suffer from poor digestion or tummy bloating try adding coconut oil to your diet. Coconut oil has been found to benefit digestive disorders including irritable bowel syndrome and microbial related tummy bugs. Fatty acids in coconut oil contain anti microbial properties, which have a soothing affect on bacteria, candida, or parasites that cause poor digestion.

Boosts your metabolism

It also increases you metabolic rate as it is made up of medium chain saturated fatty acids (MCFAs) that your body can process very quickly rather than storing them as fat. A study reported in the Journal of Nutrition found that participants who consumed two tablespoons of coconut oil per day burned more kilojoules than those who consumed less. A speedy metabolism helps boost the body’s immune system and keep weight off.

Supports your immune system

Coconut oil is made up of healthy fats lauric acid, caprylic acid and capric acid, which contain antifungal, antibacterial, antiviral prosperities to boost the immune system. Lauric acid contains the highest concentration of MCFAs fatty acids, approximately 75 per cent. The body turn this fat into monolaurin which is claimed to help heal viruses.

Stops those afternoon sugar cravings

Instead of reaching for the lolly or cookie jar for an afternoon sweet hit, try eating a teaspoon of virgin coconut oil to beat sugar cravings. This is because good quality fat is more satiating than carbs, so if you cut down on sugar you will feel less ‘ravenous’ and craving sugar or sweets. Most of us do not realize but constant hunger is a major clue that your body is not being fed correctly.  With the proper amounts of fats and protein, you can fuel your energy reserves properly, and come off the sugar roller coaster that many of us are on.

Glowing skin

Coconut is not just for your cooking – it’s a wonderfully hydrating treat for skin too. It keeps the skin’s connective tissues strong, which prevents sagging and wrinkles. Apply coconut oil directly to your skin to soften the appearance of fine lines or use it daily on your face and body for a healthy glow. Be sure you use an organic extra virgin coconut oil with no additives like ours. If it hardens during colder weather simply rub between your hands to warm it up and soften before rubbing into your skin.

This stuff is so seriously good for you! You can consume between 1-4 tablespoons a day (as part of a snack – see our recipes here) or from the jar. You can freely use it in your cooking where you would normally use oil or a fat.
