Part 1 of 3, Part 2, Part 3
A human needs healthy fats to survive. I do not know of anybody that does not consume some fats. Coconuts and their oil could very well be the hero of healthy raw fats. All fats, whether saturated or unsaturated, raw or processed, contain the same number of calories. The exception is …Coconut Oil!
The fatty acids in Raw Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil contain a whopping 33% LESS calories! RAW Coconut Oil is so healthy and unique in that it is digested and utilized directly in the liver! Normally fats circulate in the bloodstream, but Wilderness Naturals Raw Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is truly a blessing!
Raw Coconut oil is an unsaturated medium chain (MCFA) type of fat that is special compared to other fats in that it is much easier to digest. It transports itself directly to the liver where it is immediately transformed into energy. That means less stress on the pancreas and more energy for you!
Please do not confuse raw virgin coconut oil with its very distant unhealthy cousins, palm oil and palm kernel oil. They are hydrogenated, high temperature processed, blood cholesterol raising trans-fatty acid, immune system damaging oils! Most cooked, unsaturated fats even if refrigerated, become rancid in just a few hours. Raw virgin coconut oil on the other hand has showed no oxidation even after 1 year at room temperature!
‘RAW’ VIRGIN COCONUT OIL IS ENERGY FOOD!
Lauric acid is an immune system booster normally present in mothers’ breast milk. Raw coconut oil is a good source of it too. Lauric acid has been attributed to being anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-parasitic. Coconut oil is a 90+% saturated fat – a very important building block of every cell in the human body. Each cell membrane consists of unsaturated fats. Cooked, saturated fats are toxic.
CFS, HERPES, CROHNS/COLITIS
Raw Coconut Oil kills a variety of infectious organisms.
The fatty acids in coconut oil are anti-parasitic, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial which can greatly assist in the removal of intestinal harmful microorganisms that may cause chronic inflammation (in the case of ulcers, Crohns/Colitis and arthritic conditions) and suppress immune system function.
The healthy coconut fatty acids can destroy Candida (a harmful yeast) and Giardia (parasite) which are believed to be the source of Herpes and Epstein-Barr viruses, suspected major causes of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) due to high caprylic acid content. The 3 most important factors in overcoming CFS is eating healthy (high veggies, raw fats and low processed carbs), detoxifying the colon and strengthening the immune system. Coconut oil can be an effective part of boosting the immune system.
Many studies have shown a very clear link between the consumption of harmful saturated cooked hydrogenated fats/oils and the high incidences of cancers. Long lived cultures eat virtually NO SATURATED FATS and eat plenty of HEALTHY UNSATURATED FATS.
