Health Benefits of Sri Sri Organic Virgin Coconut Oil
1. Lowers Cholesterol
This superfood is loaded with saturated fats that actually raise HDL (good) cholesterol and lower your risk of heart disease. Coconut oil contains an unusual blend of short and MCFAs, specifically lauric, capric, and myristic acids that are linked to special health benefits, such as reducing cholesterol.
2. Weight Loss Aid
The medium-chain triglycerides in coconut oil can speed up energy usage compared to other fats. The MCTs in coconut oil, according to Rinehart, digest as fast as sugar in the body. “They are used up preferentially as opposed to other fuel sources and so don't get added to fat cells or ultimately contribute to weight gain,” Rinehart said. Since there is a delayed digestion in the liver, they boost metabolism.
3. Moisturizes Skin
Coconut oil can be used as a skin moisturizer because of its vitamin E content and its positive antioxidant action in the body. This helps stop the damage to the tissues in the body since oxidation is a major source of skin aging.
4. Better Brain Function
The MCTs in coconut oil provides a “secondary fuel source” aside from glucose that the brain and nervous system can function on. High sugar can contribute to neurological problems, including Alzheimer’s, In Alzheimer’s, the brain effectively blocks glucose uptake, so it is fuel-deprived, which can lead to general neuro-degeneration.
5. Kills Bacteria, Viruses, And Fungi
Coconut oil has lauric acid, which is believed to have anti-fungal, anti-viral, and antibacterial properties. This makes it helpful with various types of infections.
