The Coconut Oil we supply is 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.

The health and well being benefits from using Coconut Oil are vast, despite what we were told in the past. People across the world use Coconut oil to build and strengthen their brains, for hair care, skin care, stress relief, healthy cholesterol levels, weight loss, increased immunity, proper digestion and 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 anti fungal properties, Lauric acid has the greatest antiviral components and Caprylis acid the most yeast fighting.

Brain Health
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 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 Aging, 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.

Healthy Weight
Coconut oil is very effective in aiding in weight loss, consuming coconut oil regularly helps to restore thyroid function and increase the metabolic rate by removing stress on the pancreases, thereby burning out more energy leading to weight loss. Coconut oil isn't just good for those looking to lose weight it is often preferred by athletes and body builders the reason behind this being that coconut oil contains less calories than other oils, its fat content is easily converted into energy and it does not lead to accumulation of fat in the heart and arteries, it also helps by boosting energy and endurance and enhances performance.

Digestion / Absorption 
Consumption of coconut oil occurs mainly as cooking oil. 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 coconut oil when using any of the other super foods on our site as it greatly increases their effectiveness.

Healthy Hair
Coconut Oil helps in healthy growth of hair providing a shiny complexion. Regularly massaging your head with 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.

Healthy Skin
Coconut oil is also an excellent massage oil for the skin as well, it 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. Coconut oil also helps in treating various skin problems including psoriasis, dermatitis, eczema and many other kinds of skin infection. 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.

Kidney and Liver 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 coconut oil directly protects the liver from damage. (3)
You could also consider Coconut water as it helps hydrate and support the healing process. 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 benefits.

Gallbladder Pancreas Health
The MCFAs of 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 coconut oil to improve gallbladder and total body health.

Healthy Heart
There is a misconception spread through the media that coconut oil is not good for the heart because it contains a large quantity 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.

Muscle and Healthy Body Fat
MCFAs aren’t just good for burning fat; they are also great for building muscle. The MCFAs found in coconut are also used in popular muscle-building products like Muscle Milk™. The vast majority of heavily produced supplements, however, use processed forms of MCFAs. By eating actual coconuts instead, you get the “real deal.” I recommend adding three tablespoons of coconut oil to a muscle-building shake daily.

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 coconut oil may be an excellent fat to consume during menopause and also may have positives effects on estrogen levels. (10) 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.

Immunity
Coconut Oil is also good for the immune system, it strengthens the system as it contains antimicrobial lipids, lauric acid, capric acid and caprylic acid which have anti fungal, 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.
