Coconut Oil - Mother Natures Amazing Gift

May 2010 - Coconut Oil (V11-I6)

Mother Nature's Amazing Gift of Health

I am so excited about this information, I hardly know where to start! I have been a consumer of coconut oil for a few years now, and I'm still learning about the vast health benefits it imparts. I've been eating raw coconut oil as a substitute for processed vegetable oils, and for use on my hair and skin, as well as for a boost to my metabolism.

Now that I know how incredibly valuable this gift from Mother Nature really is, I'm eager to share with you what I've learned about the myriad of uses for coconut oil.

Improve Your Energy with Coconut Oil

Ever get worn out during an exercise routine and have to stop? The fatty acids in coconut oil known as medium-chain triglycerides are an amazing source of quick energy. Add coconut oil to your morning smoothie or pre-workout drink. The fatty acids in coconut go directly to the liver and are burned as instant fuel. Researchers found that these medium-chain fatty acids do not get stored as fat because of this rapid utilization. This is unlike other kinds of fats that the liver sends directly to storage, that we hate as it bulges on our waistlines and hips!

Not only do you get more energy from Coconut oil, it causes more fat-burning by inducing thermogenesis (creating heat in the body). Your metabolism revs up, and in this way, the oil from coconuts actually assists your exercise program!

Coconut Oil Is Truly Different! More good news! Coconut oil has also been proven to support healthy thyroid function, not inhibit the body's thyroid metabolism like most vegetable oils do.

Here's a fascinating bit of history: In the 1940's, farmers tried to use coconut oil to fatten up their animals, only to have their plan backfire. They ended up with lean, active cattle with increased appetites! So next, the farmers used an anti-thyroid medication, which did make the livestock fat while eating less food, but they dropped it when it was found to be a strong carcinogen.

By the late l940s, it was found that the same antithyroid effect, causing animals to get fat without eating much food, could be achieved by using soy and corn as feed. Sound familiar? The entire mid-west United States is planted with soy and corn to feed the cattle raised for our supermarkets and restaurants! Meanwhile, soybean oil and corn oil have been promoted heavily as healthy cheap oils while they inhibit the thyroid, slow metabolism, and promote weight gain, and inflammation while coconut oil was maligned and replaced almost entirely in our commercial and home use.

Beauty, Inside and Out

Coconut oil is known for its skin-penetrating properties, so it is a superb moisturizer for skin, hair, and nails. You can use it over your whole body; use it on the face and hands to smooth skin and prevent wrinkles, or to soften dry, rough spots like elbows and feet. It is great a makeup remover without chemicals! Coconut oil is also wonderful as a personal massage oil. It is perfect for love-making and even helps with vaginal dryness. It is a light, non-greasy, slippery-smooth oil and it doesn't stain fabrics.

One of our enthusiastic and faithful customers, beautiful Amy, lives and swears by our Coconut Oil in her professional use as an aesthetician. She said she loves to share her beauty tips with other women. Amy uses the premium virgin coconut oil from us exclusively in her facial massages. She says our coconut oil is so great, she won't use anything else. Some people have sensitive skin, and Amy knows that this coconut oil is safe on all skin types. She knows she can always trust it; she loves that it's rich with nutrients for anyone's skin. She uses it on her own face as a moisturizer.

Amy shared with us that for an extra benefit, she uses coconut oil before shampooing her hair. Her favorite thing to do is rub it into her scalp and then out to the tips of her hair and leaves it on 20 to 30 minutes, or overnight. After only one shampooing, Amy says her hair is unbelievably soft and shiny. You can also use it as a leave-in conditioner and hair smoother: just rub a pea-sized drop of coconut oil into your palms and then scrunch it into your hair. Amy's lush and long, wavy red hair is a testament to her favorite beauty regimen.


"It worked wonders on my hair. I've had problems with dry, straw-like, brittle, frizzy hair. (I wrecked my hair with dye chemicals.) I tried all kinds of conditioners. Nothing worked. Then just days ago, I put a pea-drop of coconut oil in my hands and rubbed it all over my hair and slept with it in. The next day after shampooing, my hair was softer than it's been in years!And smooth and silky. I almost can't believe it was that easy!" D.

"I massaged a bit of organic coconut oil onto my face and neck. I loved how my skin absorbed it right in so I thought I'd try a bit of an experiment and use it for two months. Wow, I will never go back today creams! Coconut oil has softened my skin, made it clear, helps with wrinkles and contains no chemicals or additives. It's amazing!" - K.

T. wrote that she started noticing nice changes in two weeks of taking virgin coconut oil. Her PMS was gone! She sleeps through the night and her skin is better and energy is up. Her clothes are now loose, too.

More good news! The coconut is rich in several immune-building fatty acids. Candida albicans is no match for both the capric and lauric acid in coconut oil. Regular use of coconut oil internally and externally can help build your body's ability to fight off candida (fungus).
