Coconut Oil – Finest Quality Food Grade – 25 lb – In Pail – approx. 3.25 Gallons

100% Pure Refined Food Grade Coconut Oil Coconut Oil Cocos nucifera Coconut oil is obtained from copra, the dried meat of coconut. Distillers separate the copra from the hull of the coconut. It is dried, crushed, and then expressed to remove the oil. This coconut becomes liquid at 76 degrees. When cold it becomes solid or semi-solid. Some people might call coconut oil, coconut butter but both are the same thing. This oil has a thick texture with no taste and no odor. A percentage of coconut oil in cosmetics is moisturizing; too much of it can be drying. Its saturated nature resists rancidity and makes a very hard soap, while at the same time producing a fluffy lather. Soapmakers usually combine coconut oil with olive, palm, palm kernel or castor oils for an all-vegetable soap. Some soapmakers use between 20% and 30% of a soap batch as coconut oil.

– 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.
