Coconut Oil helps us stay healthy.
Omega Nutrition’s Coconut Oil is made from 100% organic, unrefined coconuts.
This non-hydrogenated oil contains no “trans-fatty acids”.
It becomes solid at room temperature (24C/76F). It is anti-inflamatory, anti-viral, anti-fungal, and anti-bacterial. It can help a person desiring to lose weight as it has half the calories of other fats. Coconut stimulates the metabolism and it is very easy to digest. It also helps to kill Candida. Coconut oil helps to control diabetes as it balances the blood sugar. It has a higher flash point than lard, ghee or butter. Coconut Oil is the ideal product for cooking, baking and stir frying.
Will Coconut Oil raise my cholesterol level?
No! When non-hydrogenated organic coconut oil is part of a healthy diet, there is no change in serum cholesterol levels. For example, researchers have noted that the Polynesians and the Bicolanos (of the Philippines) include coconut oil in their diets and have low serum cholesterol levels and very little coronary disease.
Nearly four decades ago, data gathered from experimental diets, falsely concluded coconut oil raised blood cholesterol levels. Scientists now know that coconut oil was not the villain. The health problems were caused by the omission of essential fatty acids (EFAs) in the experimental diets, not by the inclusion of coconut oil. (It is also believed that the coconut oil used in these experiments was hydrogenated.) Diets which include hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated products can result in high serum cholesterol levels. This is because these products contain harmful TFAs (trans-fatty acids).
Not all saturated fats are bad for you. Current research shows it is no longer correct to think that all saturated fatty acids raise cholesterol. There are two groups of saturated fats; medium chain and long chain. Each of these fats act differently in the body. Many long chain fats are in the form of animal fats. A high concentration of these fats in the diet can raise the LDL (bad cholesterol) level.
Medium chain fats such as those found in coconut oil, can raise the HDL (good cholesterol) and do not clog arteries (remember, coconut oil melts at 77F, normal body temperature is 98F). Medium chain fats digest easily and are a good source of energy for the body.
