Coconut is an ingredient that can be eaten in all its forms. While the water and the fruit are both delicious, the pure coconut oil made from the meat of matured coconuts harvested from the coconut tree, has countless advantages for the human body, especially as an immunity booster when it is used as cooking oil.
Pure coconut oil as a cooking oil
Yashkri’s pure coconut oil is virgin coconut oil and one of the preferred pure coconut oils in Malaysia. It has all the nutrients that are important for the immune system. Our virgin coconut oil is made from fresh coconuts through cold pressed method and is the unrefined version with a lighter taste. It has higher quality than refined coconut oil and richer in antioxidant polyphenols.
Pure coconut oil has a high smoke point and longer shelf life than some other fats. As a result, coconut oil remains stable under heat, meaning it is unlikely to oxidize and create harmful compounds like free radicals during cooking, unlike other cooking oils. You can use virgin coconut oil in a myriad of ways- you can use it in baking recipes, for frying, and as a replacement for butter or vegetable oil in the recipe. You can use 1-2 tbsp of Yashkri’s pure coconut oil to stir-fry, drizzle over salads, or blend into smoothies! It’s absolutely delicious!
Various health benefits of pure coconut oil
Gives your body the healthy fatty acids
Virgin coconut oil Malaysia is high in certain saturated fats. These fats have different effects on the body compared with most other dietary fats. The fatty acids in coconut oil can encourage the body to burn fat, and they provide quick energy to the body and brain. They also raise the High level of Good Cholesterol (HDL) in the blood, which may help reduce heart disease risk. Most dietary fats are categorized as long-chain triglycerides (LCTs), while coconut oil contains some medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), which are shorter fatty acid chains. When someone eats MCTs, they tend to go straight to the liver. The body uses them as a quick source of energy or turns them into ketones. Ketones can have powerful benefits for the brain such as a treatment for epilepsy, Alzheimer’s disease, and other conditions.
Helps avoid binge eating
One interesting feature of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) present in coconut oil is that they tend to reduce hunger. This may be related to the way the body metabolizes fats because ketones can reduce a person’s appetite, thus encouraging proper diet balance, and helps you avoid binge eating.
Encourage fat burning
Obesity is a constant health problem in a global rank. While some people think obesity is just a matter of how many calories someone eats, the source of those calories is important, too. Different foods affect the body and hormones in different ways.
The medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) in coconut oil can increase the number of calories the body burns compared with longer-chain fatty acids, thereby encouraging overall fat burning in the body.
Have antimicrobial effects
Lauric acid tends to make up about 50% of the fatty acids in coconut oil. When the body digests lauric acid, it forms a substance called monolaurin. Both lauric acid and monolaurin can kill harmful pathogens, such as bacteria, viruses, and fungi, thereby boosting the overall immune system of the body.
