Benefits of Coconut Oil

Sri Sri Ayurveda’s Organic Virgin Coconut Oil made from natural organically grown coconuts, helps in conditioning the skin and hair. It is extracted through a method called cold-pressing which dos not involve heat and helps retain the high nutritional value of this oil. It contains all the essential fats, which make it an excellent choice for massaging babies and is very effective in retaining moisture on the skin and luster in the hair. It can also be used as an edible cooking oil.

There are more than a thousand studies done on the benefits of Coconut Oil, which state it to be one of the healthiest food. Coconut oil benefits and uses go beyond what most people realize.

Research has proven that the main benefts of this oil are due to the healthy fats called medium-chain fatty acids, which include Caprylic Acid, Lauric Acid and Capric Acid.

Around 62% of the oils in coconut are made up of these 3 healthy fatty acids and 91% of the fat in coconut oil is healthy saturated fat. A majority of the fats consumed on a daily basis take longer to digest, but the fats found in coconut oil provide the perfect source of energy because they only have to go through a 3 step process to be turned into body fuel as compared to other fats which undergo a 26 step process! That is a mind-boggling fact!

The medium chain fatty acids of coconut oil are easier to digest, not readily stored as fat, have anti-microbial properties, are smaller in size, which allow them easier cell permeability for instant energy, and are readily absorbed into the liver meaning they are instantly converted to energy instead of getting stored as fat.
