Organic Coconut Oil for Good Health

Author: Green Cyprus  //  Category: Talk About Food


Green Cyprus highly recommends the use of organic coconut oil and other coconut products such as ‘flour, butter, sugar and water’ as part of a healthier diet. It’s amazing how many derivatives of this healthy superfruit are available and if you read on about the benefits, it will definitely make you think about adding some of these amazing products to your diet…

Coconut oil has been consumed in tropical places for thousands of years. Studies done on native diets high in coconut oil consumption show that these populations are generally in good health, and don’t suffer as much from many of the modern diseases of western nations where coconut oil is hardly consumed anymore.

Coconut Oil Health Benefits

So how are people using coconut oil and what are some of the health benefits of coconut oil being reported? Some of the most recent research has come from people suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, with reports of people improving or even reversing the effects of Alzheimer’s by using coconut oil. Alzheimer’s is now seen as a type 3 form or diabetes, and for years we have seen positive results from people with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes in using coconut oil. There have also been a lot of reports of coconut oil health benefits from those suffering from hypothryroidism, as coconut oil helps boost metabolism and raise body temperatures to promote thyroid health. Restricting carbohydrates and increasing coconut oil in the diet has also led many to report losing weight with coconut oil. Candida sufferers also report health benefits with coconut oil as research now confirms, and those suffering from various skin diseases are also seeing tremendous health benefits by applying coconut oil directly on the skin. The benefits of coconut oil for healthy hair are also well known, and other healthy benefits of coconut oil included fighting off bacterial infections and viruses. Coconut oil is also increasingly being seen to benefit athletes and fitness trainers giving them an advantage in sustaining energy levels longer without drugs or stimulants.

Other coconut products like coconut water are very nutritious and highly effective for rehydration, hydrating quicker than water. It is naturally isotonic containing essential electrolytes, vitamins, amino acids and enzymes. Coconut butter is ideal for cooking and baking and as with the oil, it does not contain cholesterol or trans-fats. Coconut flour is a great low carbohydrate, gluten-free flour that is also a good source of protein. It is excellent for baking cakes and bread. And there’s even a sugar free raw coconut nectar which you can use in tea and coffee or baking without having to worry about the sugar content so it’s excellent for the health-conscious and those on restricted diets.

Modern day diets leave a lot to be desired. They are too high in carbohydrates, sugar, dairy and the wrong kinds of fat and they can affect our health or make us ill. Coconut products are the perfect antedote and help towards a healthier diet. The evidence is clear to see. Green Cyprus says ‘go buy!’
