VCO Facts
Why is Virgin Coconut Oil the Healthiest oil on Earth?

Yes, you are finally convinced, virgin coconut oil is good for you. But the claim that Virgin coconut oil is the healthiest oil on earth raises your eyebrows and makes you frown. There are so many vegetable oils to choose from, each of them equally beneficial. How can virgin coconut oil be the best when it used to be considered as the worst? Is virgin coconut oil being overrated or is it simply stating an accurate fact.

 

Proofs: 

 

Dr. Bruce Fife, a naturopathic doctor and the author of books like “Coconut Cures” and “The Coconut Miracle” referred to coconut oil as the healthiest oil on earth. This is because of the wide range of diseases that it can heal and the numerous benefits it can do to our body. 

 

Results of many scientific studies prove this statement thereby destroying the notion that coconut oil increases cholesterol levels and is therefore unhealthy. Clinical studies have shown that coconut oil has anti-microbial and anti-viral properties, giving hope even for AIDS patients.

 

The bad reputation of coconut oil stems from the fact that it is full of saturated fat. But coconut oil contains a unique form of saturated fat that is different from those found in animal and some vegetable fats. Virgin coconut oil is the best source of medium and short chain fatty aids.

 

Unlike other fats, it is not stored and become cellulite. Rather it is immediately converted to energy, speeds up metabolism, promote weight loss, and can heal diseases. Aside from its nutritional value, it can also be used for cosmetics and cooking purposes. It is not only good for the skin and hair. It can also be added to your favorite dish. Virgin coconut oil is pure so it is safe to use and contains no harmful food additives.

 

The coconut oil contains a special group of fats similar from those found in human breast milk. This characteristic of virgin coconut oil will ease digestion problems, improve the immune system, and can be use to fight against bacterial, viral, and fungal infections. "Never before in the history of man is it so important to emphasize the value of Lauric Oils.  The medium-chain fats in coconut oil are similar to fats in mother's milk and have similar nutriceutical effects.” Jon J. Kabara, Ph.D (Professor Emeritus, Michigan State University) said this about lauric oils.
