Coconut oil doesn’t oxidise as easily as soft vegetable fats like canola oil which means coconut oil is great for cooking. It contains a lot of medium-chain fatty acids (including Caprylic acid, Lauric acid and Capric acid), which means that it’s easy for the liver to produce energy of them. Some athletes have found coconut oil very useful to maintain quick energy and boost their immunity. Virgin coconut oil also boosts metabolism and increases the body temperature. So if you feel frozen, try 1 tbs virgin coconut oil before a meal, 3 times a day. That works for weight loss too!
Why I use coconut oil:

Intestinal needs fat. Especially virgin coconut oil is a great natural gut supporter and fat metabolism booster so it also helps with weight control.
