Coconut Oil Nutrition Profile

Coconut oil, like other plant-based oils, does not contain cholesterol. The vast majority (more than 85%) of the fats in coconut oil are medium-chain triglycerides. These medium chain fatty acids (MCFA’s) found in coconuts has tremendous health benefits; they are easy to for the body to burn as fuel for energy and have anti-microbial properties, in addition to other important traits.

Coconut oil contains three unique fatty acids that are responsible for its various health benefits:

  • Lauric acid
  • Capric acid
  • Caprylic acid

These are some of the rarest substances found in nature and the reason why this oil is so beneficial.

Lauric acid has a particular structure that allows the body to absorb it easily.  Once absorbed, it morphs into monolaurin, found in human breast milk, and coconut milk and oil. Monolaurin is known for its antiviral, anti-micorbial, and antibacterial properties.

In addition, coconut oil contains linoleic acid, oleic acid, phenolic acid, myristic acid, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, and iron.

#CoconutOil uses are countless and can be used for everything from deodorant to toothpaste and body lotion to weight loss aid.
