Product Description

100% Pure Organic Virgin Coconut Oil, Cold Pressed from Fresh Organically Grown Coconuts Oil

The entire production process for this quality organic virgin coconut oil, from palm to plate, takes just a few hours. Coconuts are collected from farmers and the nuts are taken to the processing sites. Locals are employed to husk and remove the coconut flesh using graters. The flesh is dried by turning it on large wood-fired ovens for three hours, before it’s pressed hydraulically to extract the oil. Impurities are removed and buckets of oil are filtered to create crystal clear, Heilala Coconut Oil. This cold pressed method results in a pure and natural, organic, unrefined, raw and highly stable coconut oil. Heilala Virgin Coconut oil includes several compounds that are good for your health, including caprylic acid, capric acid, and lauric acid. Virgin coconut oil contains medium-chain fatty acids (MCT) which are much easier on the body than the long chain fatty acids found in many other cooking oils. Contents will be liquid above 77F and below 77F will be solid. Heilala began as an aid project. It started with a vanilla plantation which was established by a New Zealand family, in partnership with a local family from the village of Utungake in Vava’u, Kingdom of Tonga. Heilala, now partnering with growers throughout Tonga, has had a significant impact on the Tongan economy providing employment and infrastructure across a number of communities. Heilala continues to be focused on strong Fair Trade practices. In 2013, the Heilala Vanilla Foundation was established to ensure the ongoing sustainability of their unique partnership with the community in Tonga. The Foundation is a registered charitable trust with the New Zealand Charities Commission and each year selects a project to benefit the people of Vava’u. Heilala (pronounced Hey-la-la) is Tonga’s national flower and changes color from white to red when in salt water.

– Coconut oil helps fight diabetes

Diabetes is nothing more than an imbalance of blood glucose levels. It occurs when the pancreas can not produce enough insulin (type 1 diabetes) or when the insulin produced does not function properly in the cells due to a body’s resistance to its action (type 2 diabetes).
Diabetes – icon
When one of these problems with insulin occurs, the glucose is no longer absorbed by the cells, which causes elevated blood glucose levels. In Brazil alone, there are over 11 million diabetics, with more than 3 million do not even know they have the disease.
What does this have to do with coconut oil? All. A recent study found that TCM-rich diets, such as those present in coconut oil, protect against insulin resistance.
??Moreover, unlike the MCI contained in animal fats MCT they are small enough to enter the mitochondria – the energy turbines – cell directly , where they can then be converted into energy. This reduces stress on the pancreas (because it requires less enzyme production) during meals, and therefore allows it to produce insulin more efficiently.
Metabolism of the pancreas
For these reasons, simple ingestion of half a tablespoon of coconut oil before meals may cause many diabetics to have their blood sugar fluctuations and their symptoms significantly diminished.
– Coconut oil may improve brain function in Alzheimer’s patients

Alzheimer’s disease is the leading cause of dementia in the world and occurs mainly in older people. The disease is related to loss of cognitive function (memory, orientation, attention, and language), caused by the death or malfunctioning of Brain cells.
Tree in the form of brain losing leaves
Patients with this disease tend to have a lower ability to turn glucose into energy in some parts of the brain. The good news is that the ketone bodies produced during the metabolism of coconut oil in the human body supply energy to the brain, and researchers have suggested that they can provide an alternative source of energy for those defective cells and reduce the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease.

Perhaps you already know some of the benefits of coconut oil, but do you know the top 10, and what scientific studies do they rely on?

– Coconut Oil Helps Improve Cholesterol Levels

Coconut oil is full of saturated fats, which, contrary to what was thought in the past, do not damage the sanguineous lipid. In fact, saturated fats raise good cholesterol (HDL) and turn bad (LDL) into a benign.
Good and bad cholesterol
In a study of 40 women, coconut oil reduced the total cholesterol level along with LDL, and increased HDL. Other studies have shown that in addition to reducing total cholesterol and LDL, virgin coconut oil also plays an important antioxidant and improves blood clotting.
This improvement in long-term cardiovascular risk factors can mean the difference between a healthy heart and an infarcted heart. Let the inhabitants of the archipelago of Tokelau, in Polynesia, where the heart and vascular diseases are practically nonexistent: more than half of their diet comes from the coconut.
– Coconut oil helps to burn fats

?Obesity is not only a matter of quantity of calories but also of its quality. Coconut oil does not contain the long chain saturated fats present in most high-fat foods. No, the fat present in coconut oil is composed of medium-chain triglycerides (TCM).

The MCT can increase energy expenditure when compared with the same amount of calories from fat longer chain (common in other types of oil, including olive oil).
Man with body on fire
A respected clinical-nutritional study found that daily intake of 15 to 30 grams of MCT produces an increase in energy expenditure of 5%. That is, regular intake of coconut oil can lead to significant weight loss in the long run.
