Benefits of Coconut, Coconut Oil and a Raw Vegan Lifestyle

A switch to a raw, vegan, natural food lifestyle requires a little creativity and a lot of getting used to.

When I wound up being a ‘raw person‘ I widened my tastes by checking out and trying numerous foods that I previously paid little or no attention to. Among these freshly discovered treasures was coconut.

For those blessed to live in a tropical environment where coconuts grow in abundance, there can be a strong desire to include coconut in the daily diet. But you don’t have to live on the islands to include the coconut into a healthy diet. There are many great features of the healing properties of coconut oil- a few which I will share in this post in hopes that you’ll be convinced to give coconut a shot.

Coconut oil’s hydrogenated fat is a medium-chain fat which suggests it is taken in faster than other fats. Whereas, other fats are conserved in the body’s cells, the medium-chain fats in coconut oil are rapidly broken down and changed into energy, putting less pressure on the liver, pancreas, and intestinal system. By activating this metabolic procedure, coconut oil is remarkable for those with thyroid issues.

Coconut oil, which is even more useful and healthy than corn oil, safflower oil, peanut oil, soybean oil, as well as olive oil- includes no dangerous trans-fatty acids. Trans-fats can raise LDLs, regularly described as ‘bad’ cholesterol, and lead to heart issue, stroke, diabetes, and more.

Coconut oil increases metabolic rate and supports healthy weight-loss.

There are a lot of uses for pure, virgin coconut oil. You can find out more in detail in this book: Coconut Oil Breakthrough.

Coconut oil is antiviral and antimicrobial. It increases the body immune system by destroying lipid-coated infections such as HIV, herpes, influenza, and various pathogenic bacteria.

Uses of Coconut Oil:

* As a consistent cooking oil
* salad dressing
* shakes, shakes, juices
* skin moisturizer
* massage oil

I feel the absolute best and most comprehensive benefits stem from the whole, natural coconut taken in consistently as a part of a healthy foods diet strategy. If you do not have a coconut tree in your backyard then you must make certain you are getting the best quality virgin coconut oil. Or look for quality whole coconuts in your grocery store.

When looking for a good quality virgin coconut oil, here are some things to consider:

* accredited natural, USDA requirements
* low-level heating to secure natural nutrients
* made from fresh coconuts, not dried
* no chemical components
* no enhancement
* non-GMO
* no hydrogenation
* no hybridized coconuts

Superior quality makes a substantial difference, not simply in issues to health , but also to taste and cooking quality. When you use coconut oil, you can be ensured that you are helping yourself with a healthy food that taste great and is good for you!
