Health Benefits of Coconut Oil | Sehat
Coconut oil is one of those very few foods that can be categorized as a “super food” which is why you should start including it in your regular diet, that is, if you have not already. This oil can give you health benefits such as fat loss, improved brain function and many others. To this day, there are more than 1,500 studies that prove that coconut oil is one of the healthiest foods in the world. It has a combination of medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs) that can have amazing positive effects on health.
According to research, the secret to the goodness of the amazing coconut is these healthy fats, or MCFAs, which include:
- Anti-fungal and anti-microbial
- Easier to digest
- Smaller in size, making cell permeability easier for instant energy
- Not readily stored as fat
- Processed by the liver, meaning that they are immediately turned into fuel instead of being stored as fat.
