Coconut Series – Part 2: Coconut Oil

Uncategorized | November 9, 2011 | By

Have you tried coconut oil? If not, you need to. You really, really need to.

Why? Not only does it melt in your mouth, make everything taste better, speed up your metabolism (YES, it really does!) but it also helps keep you healthy.

In a previous post about coconut oil, I shared this:

From his extensive research of the medical literature, Dr. Fife has come up with a slew of health benefits associated with coconut oil. Some of them are:
.. Reduces risk of atherosclerosis and heart disease
.. Reduces risk of cancer and other degenerative conditions
.. Helps prevent bacterial, viral and fungal (including yeast) infections
.. Supports immune system function
.. Helps control diabetes
.. Provides an immediate source of energy
.. Supports healthy metabolic function
.. Promotes weight loss
.. Supplies fewer calories than other fats
.. Improves digestion and nutrient absorption
.. Helps prevent osteoporosis
.. Helps keep skin soft and smooth
– I sometimes will take just a ‘ole big spoonful of it!
– It is the ONLY oil I use to do high-heat cooking/sauteing, as it does not oxidize at high temps!
– It is AMAZING to use to make homemade popcorn! YUM!! I also stir a little into my oatmeal in the mornings, along with some rapadura and raisins!
– Honestly, it has really seemed to give me more energy and have found that when using it regularly, it helps me stay healthy!

And, If all of that doesn’t convince you, here are 80 Uses for Coconut Oil!

If you’ve never tried, it, you should know that EVEN if you don’t like the coconut taste, you can still enjoy coconut oil – just get the refined type, which has no coconut flavor. It is slightly processed, but still retains the many benefits of coconut oil. My favorite place to get coconut oil is Tropical Traditions. In fact, they are having a sale on their REFINED coconut oil (click to be taken directly to their site).

If you have never tried it and decide to give it a try, please come back and let me know what you think!!!
