Top Benefits of Coconut Oil
Coconut Oil has been around for centuries, used in beauty products and for cooking. Organic coconut oil is minimally processed and free from chemicals - becoming the wise choice for many health conscious consumers. Recent research tells us that coconut oil keeps our body in optimal health due to its ‘Medium Chain Fatty Acids’ and anti-oxidant properties.
Organic Coconut Oil is unprocessed and derived from organic coconut farms that do not use pesticides and fertilisers. These are then processed with minimal modification to provide you with the maximum nutrition for your body. It has been pressed at low heat and filtered to maintain its phenol compounds and active antioxidants. We have organic coconut oil available from a variety of brands at AOP and have put together a list for you below. It is available for purchase in a range of sizes.
The oil has a faint taste of coconut, not as strong as coconut milk or the meat. This lets you use it like butter or spread on toast or even in cooking, frying and baking without overpowering the recipes.
High Source of Lauric Acid
With a high content of lauric acid, it increases the HDL or healthy cholesterol levels and also lowers the lethal cholesterol levels in your body. Lauric Acid is present in about 50% of coconut oil, making it an ideal ingredient in your cooking to lower bad cholesterol levels. An added advantage of lauric acid is that it fights harmful bacteria and promotes anti-bacterial and anti-fungal action in the body.
Vegans Love It
A great alternative to animal fat and people who are off dairy can make the most from this oil. The coconut oil is solid at room temperature and can be used as an alternative to spreads, butter and margarine.
It does beautify you from inside out! By massaging your body and moisturising your face coconut oil prevents dryness and delays wrinkles. It’s a great anti-aging oil and helps to ease skin infections, eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis. When ingested, it prevents degenerative diseases and premature aging, because of its antioxidant properties. The organic coconut oil available at Australian Organic Products comes from a variety of brands that not only benefit you internally, but also externally. It is indeed versatile!
Keeps Weight in Check
Coconut oil is considered the friendliest fat when it comes to losing weight because it contains Medium Chain Fatty Acids. These acids are metabolised differently when compared to longer chain fatty acids and go directly to your digestive tract from the liver for instant use of energy. This reduces hunger pangs and helps you to lose weight effectively.
