The Health Benefits of Virgin Coconut Oil
The health benefits of coconut oil consist of good hair care, skincare, stress relief, cholesterol
level upkeep, weight reduction, enhanced immune system, proper digestion and
regulated metabolic process. Additionally, it provides relief from renal
problems, cardiovascular system diseases, high bloodstream pressure, HIV and
diabetes and cancers, whilst helping to improve dental quality and bone power.

capric acidity and caprylic acidity, as well as their respective qualities, such
as antimicrobial, anti-oxidant, anti-fungus, antibacterial and calming
Baby formulas often include pure coconut oil as an ingredient because coconut is
such a healthy super food. Virgin coconut oil is rich in the essential fatty

Health Properties of Lauric Acid & Healing Coconut Oil
One of the “good fats” that makes up about 50% of coconut oil, is lauric acid.
Lauric acid is a rare medium-chain fatty acid found in mother's milk. It is now
being shown to have anti-fungal, anti-viral, and anti-bacterial
health-protecting properties. Some researchers predict that lauric acid will one
day become as well known in health circles as Omega-3 is today. We suggest
consuming 3 tablespoons of virgin coconut oil a day.
Hemp and coconut oil products deliver the nourishing "good fats, which can play
a vital role in our health. Millions of Nutiva customers are questioning the
outmoded assumptions regarding “zero fat is good”, "tropical fats are bad," and
"lots of vegetable oils are beneficial". The traditional Pacific Islander diet
included large quantities of coconut meat and oil, and those who still follow
this diet have a low incidence of heart disease or weight issues.
Besides its nutritional value, pure coconut oil also makes a luscious and
soothing massage and body oil for dry, damaged skin and hair.
Coconut Oil and Diabetes
It may come as a surprise to many of today's dieters, but there is such a thing
as "good fat," nutrition and medical experts say. "Good fats" also known as
"essential fatty acids" (EFAs), are as important to human life and health as are
vitamins and minerals.
Because the human body produces no EFAs, it is important that EFAs be consumed
on a regular basis. More than 50 years of medical research has proven without a
doubt that EFAs can influence the human body in a number of ways, including
cardiovascular health, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, skin conditions such as
eczema and psoriasis, brain function, infant development, immune function and
cancer prevention. Thus consume the freshest seeds and or oil possible and store
them in a dark, cold environment such as a refrigerator. Nutiva obtains its
seeds exclusively from Canada.
