God has designed every food for a purpose, and it’s awesome to find out that some of these foods have a huge purpose in our bodies and how they function and operate.
One food in particular is the Coconut. Some people will be immediately turned off by the Coconut, because they only think of the shredded version in German Chocolate cake. But have you tried consuming Coconut in its oil form?
It’s actually really great.
There are actually quite a few great health benefits to eating a spoonful of one of nature’s best medicines every day.
1. Coconut Oil Promotes Weight Loss
“Coconut oil is more thermogenic, compared to other foods and fats. This means eating it tends to increase energy expenditure. In other words, eat more coconut oil to burn more calories.”
Coconut oil helps balance out your organs, specifically your Liver and Thyroid. Proper hormonal balance combined with eating foods that help your metabolism rather than suppress it, are the keys that unlock weight loss.
2. Coconut Oil Hates Everything Bad In Your Body
Anti-bacterial: Stops bacteria that cause gum disease, throat infections, urinary tract infections and ulcers in their tracks.
Anti-carcinogenic: Keeps dangerous cancer cells from spreading while boosting immunity.
Anti-fungal: Destroys infection-promoting fungus and yeast.
Anti-inflammatory: Suppresses inflammation and repairs tissue.
Anti-microbial: Inactivates harmful microbes and fights infection.
Anti-oxidant: Protects from free radical damage.
Anti-retroviral/parasitic/protozoa/viral: Rids the body of lice, tapeworms and other parasites, kills protozoan infection in the gut, kills viruses that cause influenza, measles, hepatitis and more.
Seriously, could it get any better?
3. Coconut Oil Stabilizes Blood Sugar and Insulin Levels
The healthy fat in coconut oil plays an essential role in regulating blood sugar: it slows the digestive process to ensure a steady, even stream of energy from your food by lowering the overall glycemic index of your meal. When you include coconut oil in a meal with carbohydrates, the carbs are broken down into glucose more slowly – so blood sugar levels remain steady even after you eat.
This is pretty major. Diabetes is so devastating, just knowing that there’s natural remedies for helping combat it is awesome to know.
