Organic Coconut Oil Diet:
Organic Coconut oil is one of the healthiest cooking oils derived in nature. From a nutritional standpoint the Coconut Oil is an excellent source of vitamins A, C, D, and E, which are essential in maintaining a proper healthy diet. Not only is it vitamin rich, it contains no cholesterol! On top of that it has zero Trans Fats, (trans fatty acids or TFAs) which is linked to the development of heart disease.
In the past there has been some misconceptions about the health benefits of coconut oil because mass marketed and processed coconut cooking oils contained trans fats. It is ONLY Hydrogenated Processed Coconut Oil that contains Trans Fatty Acids. When oils are hydrogenated, the hydrogenating process converts fats from their natural states into monounsaturated or polyunsaturated Trans Fats. Organic Cold Pressed Coconut Oil (unrefined) is NOT processed in this manner so the oil remains in its natural and healthy state. The other reason Coconut Oil was believed unhealthy is a misguided belief that all saturated fats were bad for you. The truth is NOT all saturated fats are bad saturated fats. Just like there are both good and bad cholesterols, there are also good and bad saturated fatty acids. It all depends on how our bodies absorb these fats. Saturated fats are group into three different classes short, medium, or long chain saturated fats. Long chain saturated fats are the unhealthy or bad type of saturated fat because they are difficult for the body to absorb and cause obesity along with other health problems. Organic Coconut Oil contains mainly short and medium chain saturated fats, which our bodies absorb easily, and DO NOT have the health problems associated with long chain saturated fats!
Using coconut oil over other cooking oils can actually reduce the risk of Atherosclerosis, a condition where the walls of the artery thicken due to the build up of fatty materials from cholesterol. So coconut oil is a great alternative for a healthy diet! This is why Organic Fiji introduced Organic Fiji’s Cold Pressed Organic Coconut Oil! A great tasting healthy alternative for cooking!
