Origin and extraction
Coconut oil is originally from Asia, the Pacific Islands, Africa and Central America. A coconut tree produces 50 to 150 fruits a year. It takes 11 to 12 months for the fruit to mature.
When the fruit is harvested, the flesh is separated from the milk and the hull. Then the coconut oil comes cold to preserve all the qualities of the fruit.
True virgin coconut oil is unrefined, extracted from ripe coconut and fresh, without heating or chemicals.
A diet rich in virgin coconut oil increases glucose tolerance and improves insulin sensitivity. This oil consists of 50% lauric acid that can kill pathogenic microbes such as bacteria, viruses and yeasts, such as staphylococcus aureus and candida albicans. This acid is also effective on outbreaks of the herpes virus.
Coconut oil, despite its high content of saturated fatty acids, has a protective effect on the arteries and the heart, thanks to its metabolism process: the body immediately uses fat reserves, without storing them.
The ease of absorption of the coconut oil by the intestines and the use by the liver allow the body to produce its own energy without depending on external contributions of glucose. The effect is similar to that during a fast.
The fat in this oil also helps in the absorption of vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Coconut oil stimulates metabolism, improves thyroid function and increases energy levels.
This oil relieves acid reflux and indigestion when taken regularly. It also helps in the fight against 'bad' cholesterol.
