“Coconut oil is a uniquely curative subgroup of saturated fat that has been shown to have countless health benefits,” states Barbara Griffin, NMD, CNC, Certified Gluten Free Practitioner, and owner of New Vitality Health Foods, Inc. “When examining coconut oil’s health benefits and how it can positively affect so many metabolic and autoimmune conditions, I decided to expand the ProVitality supplement line with the addition of coconut oil capsules. ProVitality’s Coconut Oil is built from the same pureness and quality standards as our complete supplement line.”
Conventional thought the medical community delivered was that fats like coconut oil were unhealthy and contribute to a host of diseases like heart disease. Medical researchers now know that all saturated fats are not created equal. What separates these fats is how they are “created”. Some saturated fats, like coconut oil, occur naturally, while other fats are artificially manipulated into a saturated state through the man-made process called hydrogenation.
Coconut oil is also nature’s richest source of medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs). By contrast, most common vegetable or seed oil are comprised of long chain fatty acids (LCFAs). LCTs are large molecules, so they are difficult for your body to break down and are predominantly stored at fat. In contrast, MCFAs are smaller molecules that are easily digested and immediately burned by the liver for energy. As a result, coconut oil can increase metabolism and promote to healthy weight loss.
Dr. Griffin explained that when taken as a dietary supplement, used in cooking, or applied directly to the skin or hair, coconut oil has been found to:
- Strengthen the immune system
- Improve digestion
- Positively affect our hormones for thyroid and blood sugar control
- Improve degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, heart disease, and cancer
- Improve autoimmune diseases such as diabetes, arthritis, lupus, multiple sclerosis , eczema and psoriasis
- Help fight off yeast, fungus, and candida
- Prevent premature aging of the skin
- Beautify skin and hair
“ProVitality’s Coconut Oil is well tolerated and is a nutritional supplement that has numerous health benefits. Coconut oil offers so many health benefits that are correctly labeled by many medical professionals as the ‘healthiest oil on earth’,” concluded Dr. Griffin.
Dr. Griffin recommends consulting your physician before starting any new dietary supplement.
