Here at Rosa Family Chiropractic in Falls Church, I like to help people be a better version of themselves and any way possible. One of these ways it by teaching and informing my patients of some of the many benefits of coconut oil.

  1. It\'s one of the best oils to cook with. It has a very high smoke point as compared to other oils, which means it can take high heat without becoming rancid or hydrogenated. On top of that it makes the food taste delicious.
  2. It gives you a lot of natural energy. It is build mainly of medium chain triglycerides (MCT\'s). MCT\'s are metabolized differently by the liver than long chain triglycerides. They are quickly converted to energy and not stored as fat like the long chain triglycerides.
  3. Coconut oil helps reduce sugar cravings and also reduces hunger my keeping you full for longer periods of time without having the symptoms of hypoglycemia.
  4. One wonderful benefit of Coconut oil is that it helps to fight off infection. Lauric acid makes up about 50% of the total fatty acid content of coconut oil and is the main ingredient that makes this oil so great. Lauric acid is a powerful anti-microbial, killing viruses, bacteria, protozoa, and fungi by dissolving their cellular walls. Adding a daily serving or two of coconut oil to your diet can increase your body\'s resistance to illness, improve digestive health, and even help to heal ulcers of the stomach.
  5. It reduces the risk of Heart Disease. It wasn\'t too long ago that people use think that coconut oil being a saturate fat would cause you to have a heart attack. Coconut oil has been shown to improve overall cholesterol by simultaneously increasing HDL and lowering LDL. It does this by helping the body convert cholesterol in the blood into a usable form, thus reducing plaque build-up in the arteries. MCT\'s in the oil may also work to reduce triglycerides, improve blood coagulation, and perform antioxidant functions in the blood stream, further decreasing the risk of heart disease.
