Where is all this hype coming from?

Coconut oil is used extensively in tropical regions like in Sri Lanka, Thailand, India, etc. In the 70’s used to be popular in western countries, until the corn and soil oil industries damaged its reputation. Now that its benefits have been rediscovered, this product is dominating the market again. It’s now being considered a staple cooking oil with positive implications on health, although not every coconut oil is created equal, so you sure want to make sure you are using the right one for your specific need.


What are the health benefits?

That said, some of the acclaimed health benefits this product has are: hair care, weight loss, diabetes, cardiovascular disease,  skin care, and digestions, among others. Because of its light, sweet and ‘coconutty’ flavor it can substitute butter as well. We recommend reading Medical News Today for more information about it.


As they mention: the most promising job for coconut oil that all could agree on is replacing trans fats and other over-consumed commercial vegetable oils in packaged and processed products.


Keep in mind that it is the total diet or overall eating pattern that is most important in disease prevention and achieving good health and it is better to eat a diet with a variety than to concentrate on individual foods as the key to good health.
