Benefits of Virgin Coconut OiI

Are you wondering what all the fuss is about coconut virgin oil, also known as "the tree of life"? The benefits of virgin coconut oil are taking people by surprise because the oil was initially, wrongly perceived as unhealthy. But this oil is unlike any fats that you use because this oil is made up of medium-chain fatty acids, which contain healthy saturated fats. Although the oil is exorbitantly priced due to the complex extraction process, it is worthwhile your investment.
Weight Loss
Saturated fats in coconut oil speed up the metabolism rate so that the body easily breaks down food. The body also finds it easy to digest and absorb saturated fats in this oil, thus providing you with an immediate source of energy. Saturated fats from the oil are not stored in the body, so you do not have to worry about excess body fat. Consuming virgin oil from coconut just before a meal also gives you the feeling of being full, because the oil slows down the rate of digestion.
Heart Disease and Diabetes
You can treat or prevent the occurrence of heart disease by incorporating oil from coconut into your diet. The oil helps in the regulation of cholesterol levels in the blood and aids in restoring the good cholesterol. This also prevents oxidation of cholesterol in the arteries, which is a major cause of heart disease. For diabetics, oil derived from coconut is the only oil which can boost the body's energy levels without causing high blood sugar levels. This oil also minimizes the body's resistance against insulin.
Skin and Hair Health
Coconut virgin oil has small molecules which are easily absorbed into the skin and the scalp. The oil is especially helpful if you have a trouble-skin with eczema, acne and wrinkles. Because it is capable of easily penetrating the skin pores, the oil eradicates dead skin cells giving way to skin that glows with health and smoothness. It also provides more volume, sheen, strength and restoration of hair.
Mental Health
Mental health problems such as Alzheimer's and dementia are associated with inadequacy of the good cholesterol needed for nourishment of the body and the brain as well.
