The Health Benefits of Coconut Oil, Not Just For Dogs!

Weight loss, diet, family and pets?

CHILLI Brothers Organic Coconut oil consists of more than 90% saturated fats, with traces of few unsaturated fatty acids, such as monounsaturated fatty acids and polyunsaturated fatty acids. Most of the saturated fats in Coconut oil are Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs). The main component (more than 40%) of MCTs is Lauric acid, followed by Capric acid, Caprylic acid, Myristic and Palmitic. Coconut oil also contains about 2% linoleic acid (polyunsaturated fatty acids) and about 6% Oleic acid (monounsaturated fatty acids).

Most of the Organic Coconut oil benefits come from the MCTs. For example, the lauric acid in Coconut oil has antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-fungal properties. Capric and Caprylic acid have similar properties and are best known for their anti-fungal effects.

In addition, MCTs are efficiently metabolized to provide an immediate source of fuel and energy, enhancing athletic performance and aiding weight loss. In humans and in dogs, the MCTs in Coconut oil balance the thyroid, helping the overweight humans & dogs lose weight and helping the sedentary feel energetic.

According to Dr. Bruce Fife, certified nutritionist and naturopathic doctor, Coconut oil gently elevates the metabolism, provides a higher level of energy and vitality, protects you from illness, and speeds healing. As a bonus, Coconut oil improves skin and coat, improves digestion, and reduces allergic reactions.
