Coconut oil is the oil that is extracted from coconuts. People in tropical areas have consumed it for thousands of years. Coconut oil has been called a “superfood” for its array of health benefits, which include weight loss, immune system enhancement, and brain health. Creative Bioscience® only uses organic, GMO-free, virgin (meaning cold pressed and unrefined) coconut oil.

Coconut oil contains fatty acid chains called Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs). The body metabolizes MCTs differently. Unlike other fats, they are said to be transported directly from the digestive tract to the liver, where they are more likely to be used as fuel and simultaneously raise the metabolic rate, resulting in less fat available to be circulated throughout the body and deposited in fat tissues. Consuming coconut oil has also been shown to control the appetite by increasing satiety, and leaving you feeling fuller for longer periods of time after meals. Hence, decreasing the chances of overeating.
Consuming the MCTs from coconut oil is like putting premium, high-octane fuel into your car. As a result, the car will run smoother and get better gas mileage. Likewise, with MCTs, your body may perform better because it has more energy and greater endurance. Metabolism increases due to the Medium Chain fatty acids funneling directly to the liver, converting into energy, and easily absorbed by the energy-producing organelles of the cells. In addition, this burst of energy is believed to have a stimulating effect on the entire body.
In addition, coconut oil contains compounds that can help your body fight infection and boost your immune system. A compound called Lauric Acid makes up about half of the fatty acids in coconut oil. A substance, Monolaurin, is formed when coconut oil is broken down in the digestive tract. Both Lauric Acid and Monolaurin have been shown to kill bacteria, fungi, and viruses.

More Benefits (spelled out for Coconut Oil):
There is a misconception spread among many people (and has been a misconception for some time) that coconut oil is not exactly good for heart health. This is mainly because it contains a large quantity of saturated fats. In reality, it is beneficial for the heart as it contains about 50% lauric acid; which helps in actively preventing a wide array of heart problems like high cholesterol levels and high blood pressure. Coconut oil does not lead to an increase in LDL levels, and it even reduces the incidence of injury and damage to arteries. Therefore, helping in the prevention of atherosclerosis. Studies suggest that the intake of coconut oil may even help maintain healthy lipid profiles in pre-menopausal women.
Coconut oil is extremely useful for weight loss. It contains short and medium-chain fatty acids that help in taking off excessive weight (mainly in fat weight). Research suggests that coconut oil helps to reduce abdominal obesity in women. It is easy to digest and it helps in healthy functioning of the thyroid and endocrine system. It also increases the body’s metabolic rate by removing stress on the pancreas, thereby burning more energy and helping obese and overweight people lose the weight (and this is a major benefit in what otherwise seems an impossible feat). Hence, people living in tropical coastal areas, who use coconut oil every day as their primary cooking oil, are normally not overweight. This is something anyone with weight concerns should consume on a daily basis. CLICK HERE TO GET STARTED
Consuming Coconut Oil strengthens the immune system because it contains antimicrobial lipids, lauric acid, capric acid and caprylic acid, which have antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral properties. The human body converts lauric acid into monolaurin which research has supported as an effective way to deal with viruses and bacteria that cause diseases like herpes, influenza, cytomegalovirus, and even HIV. Coconut oil helps in fighting harmful bacteria like listeria monocytogenes and helicobacter pylori, and harmful protozoa such as giardia lamblia.
It helps to improve the digestive system and thus prevents various stomach and digestion-related problems including irritable bowel syndrome. The saturated fats present in coconut oil have antimicrobial properties and help in dealing with various bacteria, fungi, and parasites that can cause indigestion. It also helps in the absorption of other nutrients such as vitamins, minerals and amino acids.

Candida, also known as Systemic Candidiasis, is a tragic disease caused from excessive and uncontrolled growth of yeast called Candida Albicans in the stomach. Coconut provides relief from the inflammation caused by candida, both externally and internally. Its high moisture retaining capacity keeps the skin from cracking or peeling off. Capric acid, Caprylic acid, caproic acid, myristic acid and lauric acid found in coconut oil help in eliminating Candida albicans.
Further, unlike other pharmaceutical treatments for candida, the effects of coconut oil is gradual and not drastic or sudden, which gives the patient an appropriate amount of time to get used to the withdrawal symptoms or Herxheimer Reactions (the name given to the symptoms accompanying body’s rejection of toxins generated during elimination of these fungi). But, in the treatment of this condition, people should systematically and gradually increase their dosages of coconut oil and shouldn’t initially start with a large quantity.
