Made from coconut oil, VIRGIN COCONUT OIL (VCO) is known for its anti-bacteria, anti-virus and potent antioxidant properties. It provides incredible health and weight loss benefits.
Communities in tropical regions for centuries have used coconut oil as a vital source for food and general well-being. Coconut oil is extracted from dried coconut while the VCO is extracted from fresh coconuts using a patented process.
Though 92 percent of the coconut oil is made up of saturated fatty acids, it doesn't pose any health risk because the fatty acids are predominately made of medium chain triglycerides (MCTs). It doesn't give rise to serum cholesterol or contribute to heart disease and in fact recommended for a healthy heart.
MCTs are known to improve the thyroid function and highly recommended for those suffering from thyroid problem (hypothyroidism) and obesity. It helps to increase the body's basal metabolism rate and is a good supplement for vascular health. It provides relief for diabetics and has excellent properties for skin and hair care.
It is an excellent skin moisturizer and the people in the Indian sub-continent have been using it to groom their hair, sooth the scalp and massage the body. VCO is often recommended with other traditional remedies as it helps the digestive system to absorb the therapeutic virtues more effectively.
Coconut oil contains anti-inflammatory and soothing properties that have been used to overcome inflammatory conditions of the intestines. The coconut oil also helps to improve the balance of microorganisms in the intestines thus benefiting those suffering from digestive disorders.
Another important attribute of the coconut oil is that it is slow to oxidize, meaning it takes time for the oil to turn rancid and this in turn extends its shelf life. However, the oil will coagulate and appear cloudy if left at temperatures below 24 Celcius. It will appear clear again if dipped in warm water. To avoid this problem in the first place, the oil should be stored in room temperature only and refrigeration should be avoided.
The virgin coconut oil today has been widely accepted as a functional food providing health benefits beyond the basic nutrients. VCO offered by Era Herbal Sdn,Bhd is highly recommended for general well being, losing weight, boosting the immune system, regulating metabolism and in skincare.
