I have been reading a lot about coconut oil and its benefits and I recently tried replacing it with my regular cooking oil, and I must say, it was great. The food was as delicious as before but felt so much lighter and the digestion was great too. I would recommend all of you to try using coconut oil as your cooking oil, at least for a week, and see the difference for yourself.
As a matter of fact, there are many researches that prove the coconut oil is actually the only one that you should be cooking with, since it does not oxidize when heated. Coconut oil helps you lose weight, prevent cardiovascular disease and thyroid problems such as hypothyroidism, which is so widespread today, especially among women. Coconut is virtually the only food that contains short-chain fatty acid, which unlike other fats, do not need pancreatic enzymes or bile for digestion, making it ideal for the people who have their gallbladder removed or have difficulty digesting fats. It is also great for people who have digestive or liver problems. If you didnt know, in hospitals the short-chain fatty acid is usually incorporated in patients who require a special diet. Besides, coconut oil is rich in lauric acid, which is famous for its antiviral properties.
I would be discussing more about different benefits of coconut oil in future posts, but for now, I would suggest all of you to try using coconut oil, and let me know how you felt.
Happy cooking guys!
