What is Coconut Oil?
Coconut Oil (Virgin and Organic) by HSN Essentials is a coconut oil-based supplement, a source of medium chain fatty acids (MCT's) with multiple benefits for our organism.
Virgin coconut oil derives from the fresh meat of the coconut, through cold extraction processes, reason for which it will maintain its properties intact.
Within the coconut oil composition we can distinguish certain molecules that are formed by three saturated fatty acids with a length of 6 to 12 carbon atoms esterified with glycerol. Specifically these acids are: caprylic (C8:0), caproic (C6:0), capric (C10:0) and lauric (C12:0). With them we will be able to enjoy certain benefits for our health:
- Maintaining a healthy weight
- Efficient and available energy
- Improve digestion
- Regulate hormones
- Improve your mood
- More clearly thinking
- Antimicrobiotic action
- Supporting the absorption of nutrients from food
What are the properties of Coconut Oil?
This type of fatty acids trace a metabolic pathway to be metabolized in our body, unlike other fatty acids. In fact, they pass quickly through the stomach and are hydrolyzed by lipases of the small intestine, being absorbed virtually instantaneously and then lead directly to the liver, where they are processed. This way you obtain energy quickly and of a sustained nature.
The body is highly efficient when digesting MCT's, as they do not require bile salts for their digestion, easily passing into the blood stream.
For those people who have problems to digest long chain fats, coconut oil that contains MCT's is an option to consider. This way, we can say that it is a fat that will be used as an energy source of great power, instead of accumulating in the lipid tissue.
Benefits of Coconut Oil
MCT's are going to produce a series of benefits for our organism, among which we can highlight:
- Blood glucose regulation
- Improved energy metabolism
- Improved thyroid function
- Appetite regulation
Coconut oil is a precursor in the production of ketones, thus, it will be an essential tool to improve and increase the sport performance of those athletes who tend to reduce to the extreme their carbohydrate contribution.
Coconut oil is very useful for weight loss. It is easy to digest and helps the normal functioning of the endocrine system and thyroid. In addition, it causes the body's metabolic rate to increase by removing tension in the pancreas, thereby burning more energy and therefore, higher calorie use.
Preventing heart problems
There is some controversy about people who think this type of oil is unhealthy due to its saturated fat content. But in reality, it is the opposite, it can exert a positive effect for maintaining heart health. Its content of approximately 50% of lauric acid, will support the prevention of certain pathologies related to the heart muscle. These include:
- Reducing cholesterol
- Reducing hypertension
Coconut oil does not cause an increase of LDL levels and reduces the incidence of injuries and damage to the arteries.
Reinforces the immune system
Due to the content of antimicrobial lipids, such as lauric acid, capric acid and caprylic acid, they have antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral properties. The human body converts lauric acid into monolaurine, a substance to fight infections and cope with viruses and bacteria that cause diseases like herpes, influenza, or cytomegalovirus. Coconut oil helps in the fight against harmful bacteria like Listeria monocytogenes and helicobacter pylori and harmful protozoa such as Giardia lamblia.
It helps to improve the digestive system and avoid problems related to digestion, including irritable bowel syndrome. Saturated fats present in coconut oil have antimicrobial properties and help in the treatment of 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.
