Coconut oil comes from the coconut
The latest research tells us that coconut oil is good for us. As scientists, bio nutritionists and the some of the medical profession catch up with the latest studies and research it has been found that what was thought to be bed for us is now good for us. Have you heard that before?
Previously coconut oil was classed as bad for us because of its high saturated fat. However it has many benefits that the product of cow’s milk - butter - does not have. It is Nature’s richest source lauric acid. This acid gives many benefits to our human body.
When I was younger, the only time we used coconut oil was when making Chocolate Crackles, a great enjoyment for childhood birthday parties. My children enjoyed them too. To be honest I did not even know I was using coconut oil because it was sold under the brand name Copha and was very cheap. I had no idea that it could be used for anything else than these delicious chocolate crackles.
It has been found in recent years that this simple fat is actually good for us. I will provide links for you to check out how it is being used with great effect for people with Alzheimer’s Disease, Dementia and also Depression. It can provide very quick results if taken in large enough quantities. Now this is something worth looking at. Doctors suggest having a low carbohydrate diet along with lots of coconut oil.
Coconut Oil in Cooking
Coconut oil can be used in normal cooking, frying and baking. It is not changed chemically with high heat as is vegetable oil when used for frying. So it is better for us to use for frying.
Coconut oil is a vegetable oil and can be substituted for other oil, butter or margarine in cake and biscuit recipes.
Another benefit of coconut oil is that it does not need to be refrigerated. It is solid at room temperature and turns to liquid when heated, then returns to solid again when cooled.
So start adding coconut oil to your diet today. This just may stop or slow down Alzheimer’s Disease or Dementia in the future. These illnesses are growing at an astounding rate.
Coconut oil is gluten free.
