Facts About MELROSE Organic Coconut Oil Unref 900g
Coconut oil is a valuable source of vegan friendly saturated fats that has multiple health benefits. Yes coconut oil contains predominantly saturated fat that has had a lot of bad press (which is unfounded and supported by the vegetable oil and biomedical industry) but it is unique compared to other saturated fats. It is unique due to the length of the carbon chain that makes all fatty acids chemical structure. In coconut oil the saturated fatty acids are much shorter, named short and medium chain fatty acids. The predominant medium chain fatty acid in coconut oil is called Lauric Acid; this is the source of coconuts wonderful health benefits.

Coconut Oil Benefits include:
If an oil is saturated it is heat stable and does not oxidise easily therefore it will not contribute to free radical damage in the body. This makes coconut oil great for cooking.
Medium Chain Fatty Acids are metabolised differently to Long Chain Fatty Acid, they are used for energy and not storage. They also increase the body’s metabolism.
Lauric Acid has strong anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral and anti-parasitic properties. These properties can be applied internally or externally e.g. on dry skin conditions to prevent infection.
Coconut oil does not need to be emulsified by bile and is absorbed very quickly in the small intestine providing quick energy.
The energy coconut oil provides is long lasting and helps stabilise blood glucose levels. So it helps prevent highs and lows in energy through out the day.
Lauric Acid supports the immune system helping prevent the common cold and other infectious virus’, bacteria and parasites.

How to use Coconut Oil:
Use the pure oil to cook instead of other oils.
Use organic desiccated coconut as a porridge topping.
Drink then eat the flesh of a young coconut as a snack.
Canned coconut milk or cream can be used in curries, desserts or smoothies.
Obtain good quality oil that tastes fresh and top porridge or enrich rices dishes by melting it through with spices.
Apply the oil to dry skin or hair to moisturise and prevent infections in tropical climates.
