13 health benefits of virgin coconut oil

What is Virgin coconut oil ?
Virgin coconut oil is derived from fresh coconuts (rather than dried, as in copra). Most oils marketed as "virgin" are produced one of three ways:
1. Quick drying of fresh coconut meat which is then used to press out the oil.
2. Wet-milling (coconut milk). With this method the oil is extracted from fresh coconut meat without drying first. "Coconut milk" is expressed first by pressing. The oil is then further separated from the water. Methods which can be used to separate the oil from the water include boiling, fermentation, refrigeration, enzymes and mechanical centrifuge.
3. Wet-milling (direct micro expelling). In this process, the oil is extracted from fresh coconut meat after the adjustment of the water content, then the pressing of the coconut flesh results in the direct extraction of free-flowing oil.

TO lose weight
Do you consume virgin coconut oil but still don’t lose weight? So what could be the problem?
Many studies and facts have shown that virgin coconut oil is effective in helping to reduce body weight. It contains fewer calories than other fats and also has a group of fats known as Medium-Chain Triglycerides (MCT) that are used by the body as an instant source of energy.

MCTs are easily digested by the body and they don’t produce body fat. Hence, numerous studies and experiences in the past have led us to a conclusion that if virgin coconut oil is added consistently to a balanced diet, it shall show incredible results in weight loss. But, why there are still some people who complain that they just couldn’t lose weight after consuming virgin coconut oil? Well, I say we have several possibilities here. There are some factors that could influence the weight loss results in this case:

1. How long have you consumed virgin coconut oil?
2. How old are you?
3. How are you, really?

The answers to these questions do influence the effectiveness and the performance of virgin coconut oil in your weight loss program. Many people don’t comprehend this fact and they give up consuming virgin coconut oil in a short time, because they don’t see a significant loss in their weights. I say this is a mistake.

The first thing you should consider if you want to see great results with virgin coconut oil is the period of time you have spent consuming this oil. For most people, it takes 3-4 months to lose weight significantly by taking 3 tablespoons of virgin coconut oil daily. For elderly people, it could take longer to gain the same effects as youngsters. That is because as you grow older, your body is used to a certain routine that it refuses any instant change. So, don’t expect a great loss in weight by consuming virgin coconut oil in a term of weeks! It takes longer than that, so be patient…

The problem for most people (including you, perhaps!) is they don't like the taste of the oil. This of course, makes it hard to regularly add the oil to your diet. Actually, if you know some simple virgin coconut oil recipes, it's easy to overcome this problem

OK, back to the factors that influence your weight loss results. The third factor is your condition. Your health condition and the medicines you take could also slow down the effects of virgin coconut oil to your body. Try taking your body temp… is it low? If it is, then there could be a metabolism problem. But, if you continue combining virgin coconut oil with a reasonable eating plan, this metabolism problem shall disappear in time. But, this means it will take longer time for you to lose weight.
That’s why you have to be consistent and patient with virgin coconut oil to see incredible results in weight los
