You’d have to be nuts to not include this health promoting fat in your diet. What is this marvel you speak of…? COCONUT OIL!!
Coconut oil is fast becoming the most talked about fat in health blogs. And not surprising when you consider its unique health benefits and versatile uses…..
Coconut oil is a medium chain triglyceride making it unique among fats as most of the fats in our diet are long chain fatty acids. These are heart protecting saturated fats preventing heart disease According to expert Dr Bruce
Fife coconut oil also has antimicrobial effects in the body which means when taken internally it has the ability to kill disease causing bacteria, viruses and fungi. In addition it can be used topically on the skin to prevent
infections. Try it for ringworm, athlete’s foot and nail fungus!
It can also be used as a moisturiser for face and body and even hair! Something we want you to think about at Nourishing Insights is what you put onto your skin. This is because what we put onto our skin is absorbed by the
skin which is how certain medicines in the Pharmaceutical industry work through trans-dermal absorption e.g. nicotine patches and hormonal replacement. Just have a look at the ingredients on the back of most toiletries from creams to shampoos. It’s enough to make your hair stand on end and your skin come out in a rash just thinking about it! At Nourishing Insights we’ve done the hard work for you and if it doesn’t pass our stringent quality standards we don’t recommend it! But we are particularly keen on using foods as beauty products from your own kitchen (more on that later!) which is why we are delighted to be promoting coconut oil specifically Coconoil on our site.
The number of health benefits to coconut oil are countless and we will be blogging about each of these in turn. But just for starters and believe me this is only the start….Here are a few of the features of Coconoil which lead to those amazing health benefits....
If you would like to develop your knowledge an excellent book we highly recommend is ‘The Coconut Miracle’ by Dr Bruce Fife and an excellent website is www.coconutresearchcentre.org which pulls together all of the available medical research on everything from reducing that bad cholesterol and increasing the good stuff to reducing inflammation and even balancing blood sugar. In short, if you are not using this oil as part of your daily cooking you are missing out on so many health benefits. Just use it where you would use other fats and oils in cooking, as a spread or add a spoon to your porridge in the morning! Recipes coming soon….
