WRONGLY ACCUSED of being unhealthy!
Now now …. finally … this natural ingredient is being linked to breakthroughs in diabetes, brain health, weight loss, cholesterol, heart disease and even HIV.
Let me tell you a little story . . .
Fakaofo is one of a group of atolls between Hawaii and New Zealand known as ‘Tokelau’. The people who live there eat mostly fish and pork – plus one other vital staple … coconuts. In a study of the populace of the tiny island of Fakaofo, it was found that they had extremely low rates of heart disease.
The answer could be in the fatty oil of the coconut…
Rather than being unhealthy, the fats in coconut oil are a powerful source of energy. Research shows that they can improve your brain health, help you burn fat, lose weight and lower your cholesterol.
Let me introduce you to an amazing natural product which:
- Burns fat, lower cholesterol and reduce your appetite
- Relieves fibromyalgia, IBS, bladder, stomach and skin infections
- Fights infections, rashes, itches, dermatitis and candida
But you may have heard some bad press about it … because this substance has been flagged by some “experts” as BAD for you.
All because of our fear of FAT.
A fear that’s now been shown to be wrong.
This particular fat has long been used in many cultures as a medicine for fever, flu, rashes, stomach infections, coughs and colds, asthma, skin infections, ulcers, wounds and tiredness.
And finally, western science is finally catching up.
We’ve realized that this works in completely different ways to the fat you get in other foods such as cheese or meat.
It can lower bad cholesterol, reduce your appetite, speed up metabolism, feed damaged brain cells and fight infections that are resistant to antibiotics. This is why it’s at the vanguard of research into diabetes, Alzheimer’s and HIV.
If this was manufactured in a laboratory it would be sold as a profitable wonder drug by the big pharmaceuticals. But greedy corporations can’t touch it… because it’s a natural ingredient.
This is something you could make at home… if you have plenty of time… and don’t mind what is sometimes described as a “disgusting” taste and smell.
Or instead I’ll show you a brilliant alternative…
…. A capsule you can take anywhere – anytime – which delivers the same health benefits…
… and you don’t have to taste a thing!
THE SATURATED FAT THAT’S ACTUALLY GOOD FOR YOU
For a long time, the oil from coconuts was considered “bad” for you. This was because 94% of it is made of saturated fatty acids.
As we were told so often by “experts”, saturated fats were evil substances that clogged up our arteries – to be avoided at all costs.
But the idea that eating fats clogs up your arteries is being debunked. And it turns out that not ALL saturated fats are bad for you either. In fact, it’s the saturated fats in coconut oil that make it so wonderful for your health.
They’re what’s known as “medium-chain fatty acids”. They don’t act like the saturated fats in cheese, vegetable oils or steak.
Instead, these are the same fatty acids found in mother’s milk….
…they are metabolized VERY quickly in the liver and turned into energy, as well as other good things known as ketone bodies. It’s these which may have benefits for sufferers of brain disorders, including Alzheimer’s…
And here’s where it gets exciting for the everyday consumer of coconut oil…
How to burn fat and un-clog your arteries
A faster metabolism means you burn fat more quickly and lose weight more easily. Coconut oil also helps reduce the amount of fat which builds up around your abdominal cavity – in other words, tummy fat. This is the type of body fat that’s linked for many health problems in the west, especially heart disease.
And the news gets better…
Rather than clogging your arteries, the fats in coconut oil do the opposite. They actually raise your level of good cholesterol (high density lipoproteins) and lower the bad cholesterol (low density lipoproteins). They can help remove blockages and improve your heart health.
Amazing isn’t it?
After years in the wilderness, here’s a saturated fat that quickly turns into energy, speeds up your metabolism, lowers cholesterol and helps you lose weight.
Already that’s the equivalent of a wonder drug right there!
But there’s more that coconut oil can do for us…
- Anti-microbial action! When you digest coconut oil, it creates monolaurin. This, combined with something known as a ‘Lauric Acid’ which is also in the oil, helps kill microbes, fungi and viruses. This is why coconut oil can be used against athlete’s foot, rashes, itches, ringworm, dermatitis and candida.
- Hair and Skin! The Vitamin-E which is packed into coconut oil keeps your hair and skin healthy. In India, coconut oil is regarded as a hair loss remedy.
- Remedy for infection and inflammation. Coconut oil is a powerful anti-oxidant, and anti-inflammatory which helps fight colitis, stomach ulcers, and renal infections.
Okay, so that’s the GOOD news about coconut oil…
Now for the BAD.
The problem is getting this wonderful stuff into your system.
That’s where it becomes a bit of a mine-field. And here’s why…
Why not ALL coconut oils are the same
There are a few ways you get coconut oil…
If you have lots of time, patience and storage in the house, you can buy coconuts, hack them open and go through a series of processes to extract the oil. These involve activities like pulping, separating, draining, heating, refrigeration… not to mention storage of the big jars.
The trouble is, these processes kill most of the vitamin-E, anti-oxidants and minerals.
Alternatively, you could buy jars of coconut oil which you can spread on food, or use to cook. However, you should only choose virgin organic coconut oil, because many other products are ‘refined’…. boiled, churned, evaporated, refined, bleached and generally over-treated…
Even if you find a good source of oil, consuming it regularly can be a hassle. You have to find ways to eat it every day, spread it on food, put it into drinks and possibly even carry the jars about with you whenever you travel.
What’s more, some people HATE the taste of coconut, the smell of it, the oiliness…
….everything about it! I love it, but not everyone is like me.
So if you happen to be one of those people described above, the simplest and most effective way of getting the very best coconut oil into your system is this…
