Coconut Oil For Weight Loss And How It Can Help You

Are you thinking about coconut oil for weight loss? This is possible because of the medium chain fatty acids which are responsible for helping you lose the extra weight. It also has many other health benefits such as improving thyroid function, improves heart health and increases our metabolism so we can burn more calories. The oil is not stored as body fat but absorbed by the body and used as energy or fuel. The oil can also strengthen connective tissues so your skin does not wrinkle or sag as you lose the weight.

This substance is derived from the dried fruit of the coconut tree, the fats mostly contain lauric acid,myristic acid,caprylic acid and palmitic acid. You will need to take coconut oil every day if you want it to help you with your weight loss. It may take up to 2 months until you see results, it is important to start with a small dose such as a teaspoon per day as it can cause healing reactions. By adding it to your diet you will have more energy, reduce cravings and it will help you feel fuller for longer as it slows down digestion.

Research has shown that it can also increase your metabolism by 50% and is one of the best substances that is more effective than any other fatty acid counterparts. By including medium fatty acids instead of long fatty acids this will help you lose weight more effectively. You can gradually add coconut oil into your diet until you get to a daily dose of 3 tablespoons.

There are so many other benefits in coconut oil, the lauric acid which is also found in breast milk has anti bacterial, anti microbial, anti parasitic,anti fungal and anti viral properties that can help protect you from getting sick. So not only can it help you lose the extra weight it can also help keep you healthy by boosting your immune system. There are also many coconut water health benefits that can help you lose weight and can keep your body hydrated while you exercise.

It can also help in managing your blood sugar levels by slowing down the process of carbohydrates to glucose. It can also help detoxify the body of unwanted toxins which can also help you lose weight. By removing toxins the digestive tract can function a lot better.

When using coconut oil for weight loss it is important to get the organic unrefined virgin coconut oil as this is the most purest form of this oil. You can add the oil to your food and cook with it or you can take it straight from the container. It has a light coconut smell and slight oily taste and takes time for you to see results as you need to work your way up slowly from a small dose. By including healthy diets for weight loss and taking coconut oil on a daily basis you will get better results in losing the extra weight.
