Extra Virgin Organic Coconut Oil

Description:

The best way of receiving all the wonders of the coconut with all of its miraculous ingredients is to take it right from the tree and eat it at that time. Herbs of Light has decided to be of service in distributing a Coconut Oil whose process has maintained as much of its micronutrients and life force energy as humanly possible. We package our coconut oil in 15oz. amber glass jars to maintain integrity. Problems of the Past In the past, coconut oil was found to raise blood cholesterol and cause heart disease. However, the analysis made was using a coconut oil that had been hydrogenated. Hydrogenation creates trans fatty acids which are toxic entities, which enter the cell membranes and block the utilization of fatty acid and impede cell functionality. Trans fatty acids also cause a rise in blood cholesterol. These substances are not present in coconut oil that has been processed with integrity. Another reason people believed coconut oil must be bad for you is due to a misguided association that all saturated fats are harmful. Our leading scientists now recognize that just as there is good cholesterol there is good saturated fat. Fats are classified as short, medium, or long chain based on the number of carbon molecules they contain. When we ingest long chain fatty acids, they must be emulsified by bile salts in the small intestine before they can be absorbed into our body. Weight Loss Help Nearly 2/3 of the saturated fat in coconut oil consists of medium-chain fatty acids. Short and medium-Chain fatty acids, such as those in coconut milk, are easily absorbed into our body. Most of the saturated fat in coconut oil is easily digestible and converted into quick energy. These types of fatty acids are less likely to cause obesity because they are immediately used as fuel by the body and have no opportunity to be stored. Increased Energy When the body uses carbohydrates, insulin produced by the pancreas is required for the glucose molecules to enter into the cell. Many people develop a resistance to insulin as the get older and it becomes increasingly more difficult for the body to get these molecules into the cells. Any extra glucose, which does not get used by the body for energy, is turned into triglycerides. You can have high triglycerides in your blood and not eat an ounce of fat. Even total vegetarians can have high triglycerides from eating a high carbohydrate diet. Triglycerides and lipoproteins, in the same manner as glucose, travel across cell membrane to be used as energy. They too require carrier enzymes in order to permeate both membranes of the cells mitochondria where their energy is released. Since the longer chain fatty acids demand special enzymes to pull them through the double membrane, the energy production process is much slower and taxing on the enzyme reserves. Medium chain fatty acids are unique in that they can easily permeate both membranes of the mitochondria without the need of extra enzymes and thus provide the cell with a quick and efficient source of energy. This is great news! Protection From Virus, Bacteria, Fungus & Parasites Nearly 50% of the fatty acid in coconut oil is lauric acid, which converts to the fatty acid monolaurin in the body. Lauric acid has adverse effects on a variety of microorganisms including bacteria, yeast, fungi, and enveloped viruses. It destroys the lipid membrane of such enveloped viruses as HIV, measles, Herpes simplex virus 1, influenza, and cytomegalovirus. Its usefulness in treating AIDS is currently under investigation. The only other abundant source of lauric acid is in human breast milk, through which it helps protect children from illness during infancy. Coconut oil provides an effective defense against many troublesome parasites including giardia. Like bacteria and fungi, giardia cant stand up against medium-chained fatty acids found in coconut oil. Research has confirmed the effective
