Some people have said that coconut oil leaves them feeling fuller after eating. This is because MCTs are metabolized as ketones which lead to reduced appetite. Coconut oil is one of the key ingredients in the Keto Diet.
Green Valley's Conventional Coconut Oil is very different from most other cooking oils and contains a unique composition of fatty acids. The fatty acids are about 90% saturated. But coconut oil is perhaps most unique for its high content of saturated fat - lauric acid, which makes up around 40% of its total fat content. These are harder for the body to convert into stored fat and easier to burn off than long-chain triglycerides (LCTs). This makes it highly resistant to oxidation at high heat. For this reason, it is very suitable for sauteing or stir-frying in a pan. It is also a good substitute for butter or eggs in baked dishes.
Green Valley's Conventional Coconut Oil contains natural saturated fats that increase HDL (good) cholesterol levels in your body. There are two types of cholesterol: high-density lipoprotein (HDL), or good cholesterol, and low-density lipoprotein (LDL), or bad cholesterol. By increasing HDL, many experts believe that coconut oil boosts heart health compared with many other fats. Regularly consuming it improves the levels of lipids circulating in the blood, potentially reducing the risk of heart disease.
Green Valley's Coconut Oil has medium-chain fatty acids that are natural antiseptics. This help kill some of the bad bacteria in your stomach and aid the body in producing chloride, which balances stomach acids. It relieves some of the damage done to the esophagus by the acid it's continuously exposed to.
Coconut oil can help maintain an essential balance of hormones because of the lauric acid contained in it.
