Virgin Coconut Oil


Virgin Coconut Oil is Not Hydrogenated

a_virgin_coconut_oil_treeHealthy Organic Virgin Coconut oil is not refined, bleached nor deodorized (RBD), and most importantly, is not hydrogenated.  The hydrogenation process creates unhealthy trans fatty acids, and hydrogenated coconut oil should not be consume.  VCO also retains the smell and taste of fresh coconuts.  Virgin  coconut oil and also a high quality expeller-pressed (cold-pressed) coconut oil will retain many of the healthy properties of coconuts including the medium chain fatty acids.  They tend to average around 45-50% of the highly beneficial lauric acid.  Virgin Coconut Oil is not heated to high temperatures like some other oils and hence retains the fresh taste and aroma of coconut.

Virgin Coconut Oil Benefits:

Virgin coconut oil (VCO) has many reported benefits, including boosting energy, metabolism, immune health and helping support healthy skin and thyroid function.  Many people worry about the saturated fats in the coconut oil, but many people in the tropics have used coconut products including coconut oil for thousands of years, and there, like in the USA, heart problems were very rare before the introduction of refined foods, like white flour and white sugar.  For example, in Sri Lanka, before 1950, heart attacks were not very common there at all.  Heart attack rates went up as coconut consumption went down in the 70’s and 80’s.

More on Coconut Oil Benefits



Many people have reported that both expeller-pressed and virgin coconut oil can help you to:

    • Lose weight more easily and keep that weight from coming back
    • Increase your energy
    • Rev up your metabolism
    • Promote healthy thyroid function

G. W. Crile and his wife found that the metabolic rate of people in Yucatan, where coconuts and coconut oil are staple foods, averaged 25% higher than that of people in the United States.

Coconut Oil and Weight Loss

Adding coconut oil to your diet may help you to lose weight by boosting your metabolism.  Many people have reported that consuming coconut oil, including the virgin type (VCO), helps them to lose weight. They often experience increased energy levels and fewer cravings for carbohydrates and sweets. It’s easier for many people to eat less when consuming 2 - 4 Tablespoons of coconut oil per day, because the fats provide a feeling of satiety or fullness after eating that is not generally experienced when eating a low-fat meal.

Virgin coconut oil is rich in the medium-chain fatty acids (MCFA’s), like lauric acid, that have been shown to boost the metabolism.  And that’s good news for those of you trying to lose weight.  As you probably know, the higher your metabolism, the more calories your body burns, even when you are not exercising.  Weight loss is NOT just about the calories you take in - it’s also about the calories you burn!  You will burn more calories when you exercise, but if your metabolism is higher, you will burn more calories even when you are at rest!
And because around 50% of the fatty acids in coconut oil are lauric acid, it’s one of nature’s highest sources of this medium chain fatty acid.  In addition, according to some research, it appears that the amount of energy used to metabolize these MCFA’s is greater than the energy they provide - this means you may actually burn more calories in metabolizing coconut oil than the calories that it contains!
Last, but not least, the lauric acid is the most rapidly metabolized fatty acid around, scientists have found.  It has a “thermogenic” effect, meaning it raises your body temperature.  This, in turn, boosts energy levels and metabolism.  This may be why coconut oil consumption seems to be especially helpful with those who have sluggish thyroid problems, that don’t always show up on blood tests for thyroid function.

Coconut Oil and Thyroid

Research points to the fact that a major cause of weight problems in America today may be an under-active thyroid gland, especially among women. That’s because the thyroid gland controls body temperature and metabolism, and when the thyroid is sluggish, body temperature and metabolism tend to slow down. Some other symptoms of low, or hypothyroid, are fatigue, cold hands and feet, depression, anxiety, constipation, easy bruising, insomnia, dry skin, unhealthy and brittle nails, allergies and asthma, migraines, acne, hair loss and low sex drive.  If you have any of these, be sure to read our page on Coconut Oil and Thyroid.
