It may not come as a surprise, but I put coconut oil in my coffee. And believe me, it’s delicious. It’s not only delicious, it helps fight all kinds of germs we encounter every day.
3 Reasons To Drink Coconut Oil Coffee
Coconut Oil Increases Your Energy
As we mentioned before, coconut oil gives you energy. If you wonder how it works, we have the answer. Coconut oil is made up of MCTs (Medium Chain Triglycerides). MCTs are more rapidly absorbed by the body and are quickly metabolized as fuel (not stored as fat).
Coconut Oil Speeds Up The Metabolism
Eating MTCs, results in accelerated metabolic conversion.Instead of being stored as fat, the calories contained in MCTs are very efficiently converted into fuel for immediate use by the body.There was a study conducted between 40 female volunteers between the ages of 20 and 40 who suffered from abdominal obesity.Over a 12-week period, the women were given a daily dietary supplement comprising of 30 millimeters of either soybean oil or coconut oil. At the conclusion of the study, the researchers found that the women who were given the coconut oil experienced a significant reduction in both BMI and waist circumference, as well as an increase in “good” HDL cholesterol. The same couldn’t be said for the group that was given soybean oil. “It appears that dietetic supplementation with coconut oil does not cause dyslipidemia and seems to promote a reduction in abdominal obesity”.
Coconut Oil Boosts The Immune System
Around 50% of the fatty acids in coconut oil is Lauric Acid (aka the super healthy fats found in human breast milk).Lauric acid is potent in antimicrobial properties, and according to WebMD lauric acid is used for treating, “viral infections including influenza (the flu); swine flu; avian flu; the common cold; fever blisters, cold sores, and genital herpes caused by herpes simplex virus (HSV); genital warts caused by human papillomavirus (HPV); and HIV/AIDS. It is also used for preventing the transmission of HIV from mothers to children.”
