Ancient Purity Presents pure Extra Virgin Coconut Oil from the most trusted purest source in the Philippines. We have found it to be the highest quality that we have been able to find. Coconut Oil can help the body use Omega 3 fatty acids nearly twice as efficiently and being a healthy saturated fat, it helps to regulate and support healthy hormone production. Coconut Oil contains precursors to pregnenolone, progesterone, and DHEA. It is perhaps one of the most powerful natural tools in the battle against brain deterioration as it improves memory by promoting the health of the brain’s neurons (Chemical messengers). Organic Cold-Pressed Coconut Oil delivers energy to these neurons so they can work properly. Coconut Oil can also help to protect neurons by decreasing oxidative stress and inflammation.

The health and well-being benefits from using Coconut Oil are vast. People across the world use Coconut to build and strengthen their brains, for hair care, skin care, stress relief, healthy cholesterol levels, weight-loss, increased immunity, proper digestion, healthy metabolism, kidney health, heart health and bone strength. Coconut Oil is composed of more than 90% saturated fats and a few unsaturated fatty acids. The saturated fatty acids are mainly Medium Chain Triglycerides opposed to the long-chain ones found in meat, these shorter chain fatty acids require less energy and enzymes to digest, and thus assimilate well into the body. Of the MCT's found in Coconut Oil, Lauric acid (C-12) is the most abundant making up nearly 40%, then Capric (C-10) Caprylic (C-8) and Myristic (C-14). All of these demonstrate antimicrobial, antiviral and antifungal properties. Lauric acid has the greatest antiviral components and Caprylic acid the most yeast fighting ones.

Coconut Oil... Brain & Cognitive

The digestion of MCFAs by the liver creates ketones that are readily accessible by the brain for energy. Ketones supply energy to the brain without the need of insulin to process glucose into energy. Recent research has shown that the brain actually creates its own insulin to process glucose and power brain cells. As the brain in poor health loses the ability to create its own insulin, the ketones from our premier quality Coconut Oil could create an alternate source of energy to help repair brain function. In a 2004 study published in the Journal of Neurobiology of Ageing, researchers found that the MCFAs in Coconut Oil improved the memory problems in their older subjects. Across all the patients there was a marked improvement in their recall ability after taking this fatty acid. As the MCFAs are absorbed easily in the body and can be accessed in the brain without the use of insulin. Thus, they are able to fuel brain cells more efficiently. There is a lot of hype surrounding a healthy brain and Extra Virgin Coconut Oil. Scientific research confirms that a number of these claims are actually true. Here are some of the principal science-backed brain health benefits of Pure Coconut Oil.

Memory Loss…one of the most promising Coconut Oil is as a potential for battling the well-known progressive brain illness commencing with some memory loss and likely leading to loss of the capability to having  a conversation and react to the surrounding environment. This illness now is considered a type of brain diabetes known as “type 3 diabetes.” In this ailment, the cells of the brain become insulin-resistant and cannot absorb the needed glucose, and subsequently perish. Extra Virgin Coconut Oil’s medium-chain triglycerides bypass the metabolism of glucose, providing energy directly to brain cells which demand it. PET scans prove that the brain’s areas affected by Alzheimer’s which cannot take up blood sugar readily take up ketones. The medical pioneer who made the idea of making use of coconut oil to help treating Alzheimer’s popular is Mary T. Newport, MD. Here you can read evidence on Coconut Oil for serious Brain Illness. Researches reveal that Pure Coconut Oil works by decreasing beta-amyloid plaque’s accumulation believe to cause Alzheimer’s and that ketone bodies hold promise as a therapeutic tool. High-fat diets, particularly the ones that feature the MCTs found in Virgin Coconut Oil might delay brain ageing. Pure Natural Coconut Oil boasts antioxidants that are essential for maintaining a healthy-functioning brain. Antioxidants neutralise harmful free radicals, unattached oxygen molecules which harm cells and quickening their demise. Brain cells are especially vulnerable since they make use of a disproportionate oxygen amount. Dr Newport and other health specialists are convinced that the medium-chain triglycerides in Coconut Oil have terrific potential for helping to treat several other neurological issues as well.

Coconut Oil Gives

Digestion / Absorption...Consumption of Coconut Oil occurs mainly as cooking oil. Pure Virgin Coconut Oil helps in improving the digestive system and thus prevents various stomach and digestion related problems. Coconut Oil also helps in absorption of other nutrients such as vitamins, minerals and amino acids so we recommend adding this 100% natural Coconut Oil when using any of the other superfoods on our site as it greatly increases their effectiveness.

Immunity / Antifungal... Coconut Oil is also good for the immune system as it strengthens the system. This due to the oil containing antimicrobial lipids, lauric acid, capric acid and caprylic acid which have antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral properties. Lauric acid (monolaurin), which is known to reduce candida, fight bacteria and create a hostile environment for viruses. Many diseases today are caused by the overgrowth of bad bacteria, fungi, viruses and parasites in the body. You can replace grains and sugar in your diet with Coconut Oil as your natural fuel source when you’re sick. Sugar feeds the growth of bad bacteria.

Healthy Hearts... There is a misconception spread through the media that Coconut Oil is not good for the heart because it contains a large number of saturated fats. However, Coconut Oil is very beneficial for the heart as It contains high amounts of lauric acid, which helps in promoting health over issues including high cholesterol levels and high blood pressure, Coconut Oil helps normalise cholesterol levels in the body, this is why coconut eating cultures in the tropics typically have much lower cholesterol than most western countries. The saturated fats present in Coconut Oil are not harmful, unlike many other vegetable oils that are used for cooking. The following statement is from Harvard Medical School, ''The reason Coconut Oil has been touted as heart-healthy (despite its fat makeup) is because of the suggestion that it can raise HDL ("good") cholesterol, and because of the type of saturated fats it contains: it's high in "medium chain triglycerides" while most other saturated fats found in plant-based oils have more "long chain triglycerides."

Coconut Oil Keeps Giving

Organ Health... Coconut Oil has been known to clear up and heal urinary tract infection (UTI) and kidney infections. The MCFAs in the oil work as a natural antibiotic by disrupting the lipid coating on bacteria and killing them. Research also shows that Extra Virgin Coconut Oil directly protects the liver from damage. You could also consider Coconut water as it helps hydrate and supports the healing process. Some Doctors have even injected coconut water to clear up kidney stones. Coconut is a powerful superfood, which is evident given all these tremendous Coconut Oil health benefits.

The MCFAs of our Coconut Oil do not need the pancreatic enzymes to be broken down, so taking coconut oil eases the strain on the pancreas. Additionally, this superfood is so easy to digest that it has been known to improve the symptoms of gallbladder issues as well. Replace other long-chain fats with Ancient Purity’s Coconut Oil to improve gallbladder and total body health.

Hormonal Health... Using Coconut Oil benefits your hormones as well! Coconut Oil may help naturally balance hormones because it’s a great source of saturated fat, including lauric acid. Studies have found that Extra Virgin Coconut Oil may be an excellent fat to consume during menopause and also may have positives effects on estrogen levels. In order to naturally balance hormones, reduce sugar and grain consumption and load up on healthy fats from coconut, avocado, flax seeds and ghee. You can also consume other coconut forms, such as coconut butter or coconut water.

Coconut Oil for Balanced Weight, Muscle & Healthy Body Fat

MCFAs found in Coconut Oil aren’t just good for burning fat; they are also great for building muscle. Many bodybuilding supplements use processed forms of MCFAs. Consuming Coconut Oil instead, you get the “real deal.” Just add 3 tablespoons of Coconut Oil to a muscle-building shake daily. Coconut oil is effective in aiding in weight-loss as regular consumption helps to restore thyroid function and increase the metabolic rate by removing stress on the pancreases, thus burning out more energy leading to weight-loss. Coconut Oil contains fewer calories than other oils. This because Coconut Oil’s fat content is easily converted into energy. Due to this process, it does not lead to accumulation of fat in the heart and arteries. Additionally, it helps by boosting energy, endurance and enhances performance.

It really is one of the essentials in the Ketogenic diet and rightfully recognised as a world Superfood. The MCTs (Medium Chain Triglycerides) in Coconut Oil are good for upping your body's energy expenditure and burning calories. Here's yet another way this wonder-stuff can help your body. It's great for building muscle, according to a Diabetes study! The MCTs found in Coconut are also used in popular muscle-building products like Perfect Keto Protein Powder. But many supplements use processed forms of MCTs. By eating adding actual coconut oil, you'll benefit from getting your MCTs in their natural and most effective form. Add 1-2 tablespoons of it to a muscle-building shake daily to feel the full benefits of coconut oil.

Coconut Oil Supports Healthy Skin & Hair

Coconut Oil helps in healthy growth of hair providing a shiny complexion. Regularly massaging your head with Virgin Coconut Oil ensures that your scalp is free of dandruff, lice, and lice eggs, even if your scalp is dry. Coconut Oil is used by the vast majority of people in the Indian sub-continent for hair care. They apply Coconut Oil on their hair daily after bathing. It is an excellent conditioner and helps in the re-growth of damaged hair. It also provides the essential proteins required for nourishing damaged hair.

Coconut Oil is also excellent massage oil for the skin. The oil acts as an effective moisturiser on all types of skins including dry skin. Coconut Oil is a safe effective solution for preventing dryness and flaking of skin as well as delaying wrinkles and sagging of skin which can become prominent as we age. Virgin Coconut Oil also helps in treating various skin problems including psoriasis, dermatitis, eczema and many other kinds of skin infections. When applied on skin infections, it forms a chemical layer which protects the infected area from external dust, air, fungi, bacteria and virus. Coconut Oil is especially effective on bruises as it speeds up the healing process by repairing damaged tissues.

Coconut Oil… Closing Thoughts

In recent years, the popularity of Coconut Oil has soared because of touted health benefits. My Sri Lankan friend once told me: "Coconut is a health food. It's a skin conditioner. You can use it in your hair. It's even great as a natural wood polish for your furniture! But wait, there's more! You can use coconut oil to improve your IQ and shrink your bunions!"  Well, it is a very good summary! Its high smoke point makes it perfect for frying, while its properties as a saturated fat make it a go-to dairy-free butter substitute in baking. And the nutty, slightly sweet scent of Ancient Purity’s Extra Virgin Coconut Oil could just as easily belong to a moisturiser as a coffee creamer alternative.

Most of the health-improving claims for Coconut Oil refer to scientific research that used a special formulation of Coconut Oil produced of 100% medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), not the commercial Coconut Oil that you’ll find usually on supermarket shelves. MCTs have a shorter chemical structure than other fats, and so are rapidly absorbed and used by your body. After digestion, MCTs make their way to the liver where they’re instantly used for energy. The belief is that this speedy form of absorption supports satiety and helps to prevent fat storage. Coconut Oil contains high amounts of lauric acid, which isn’t an MCT. Absorbed slower, Lauric acid is metabolised like other long-chain fatty acids. So the health benefits reported from a specially constructed MCT Coconut Oil that contains medium-chain triglycerides other than lauric acid cannot be applied directly to commercial Coconut Oils! Ancient Purity provides the highest quality of Coconut Oil. You will not find our Extra Virgin Coconut Oil on the supermarket shelves. Simply, because it’s too good!
