Rediscovered Health Benefits of Coconut Oil

Posted by on

Coconuts, from coconut-palm trees, are a major food source in many tropical parts of the World. Their white internal ‘meat’ is shredded for food, and is often pressed to extract coconut oil and ‘coconut milk.’ Coconut oil in food for human beings has often been disparaged by Western medicine, because it is very high in saturated fat. Recent medical research, however, has found that not all saturated fats are equally bad for you, and that coconut oil in particular can have some very major health benefits.

How to Choose the Best Coconut Oil

The health benefits of coconut oil depend very, very much on how it is prepared. The best method is to use centrifuging on mashed coconut meat that is somewhat above room temperature. Coconut oil prepared in this way is referred to as ‘extra-virgin.’ Below about 76 degrees Fahrenheit (approximately 24 degrees Centigrade), the oil solidifies into whitish glop resembling Crisco shortening. Other methods of preparing coconut oil mostly involve significant heating; these methods yield a few percent more oil per coconut, but change the chemical composition of the resulting oil in ways that are generally very unfavorable for human health. In particular, ‘Refined, Bleached, and Deodorized’ (RBD) coconut oil is obtained by heating and compressing coconut meat, and is not usually perceived as even being fit for human consumption except when it is used just as cooking oil. When it is partially hydrogenated to raise its melting point, it becomes even less desirable nutritionally.

Extra-virgin Coconut Oil For Weight Loss

Most edible oils high in saturated fats are comprised of Long-Chain Triglycerides (LCTs). Extra-virgin coconut oil like that used in CLE’s Coconut Soft Gels, on the other hand, is mostly comprised of Medium-Chain Triglycerides (MCTs), which are more easily digested and used by our bodies than are LCTs, and thus are less likely to simply get turned into body fat. Unlike carbohydrates, they don’t precipitate an insulin spike. For many folks, they’re helpful in losing and in stabilizing body weight; they’re particularly helpful in this respect for Diabetics.

Coconut Oil May Lower Your Risk of Heart Disease

A major component of coconut oil is lauric acid, which despite being a saturated fat is obviously highly beneficial for human bodies, based on fairly recent clinical studies of Tokelauan and Philippine-Bicolano South Seas Islanders who get much of their nutrition from coconuts and are relatively free from heart disease. Human bodies convert lauric acid into monolaurin, which is known to have  anti-bacterial, anti-protozoan, and anti-viral efficacy. And, it often improves the ratio of ‘good’ Low-Density Lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol to ‘bad)’ High-Density Lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol in human bloodstreams.
