History of Virgin Coconut Oil – Clearing its Name!
Since the 1960s, coconut oil has been unfairly labeled as “unhealthy.” The media reported studies of how tropical coconut oils were laden with artery-clogging saturated fats. What was left out of these reports was the fact that the coconut oil used in the studies was not the virgin oil used for centuries but hydrogenated coconut oil. We have since learned it’s the hydrogenation — artificially adding a hydrogen molecule to oils in order to make them shelf-stable — that’s the problem, not the coconut oil itself. Hydrogenated soy, corn, and canola oils — loaded with dangerous trans-fats and processed with toxic hexane solvents — are routinely added to packaged foods. Hydrogenation fattened corporate profits and American waistlines, and is now linked with trans-fats and associated heart disease.

Please check out this clip on coconut oil below. At Alive Health Centre, Morning Sun and Supplements Plus we have been trying to spread the awareness of the benefits of taking coconut oil. It is difficult at times because of the public being miss-informed a few years ago. Coconut oil was said to raise cholesterol, however, they were talking about the GOOD Cholesterol which is HDL. Also, the type of coconut oil is important and Nutiva is excellent, most importantly it is unhydrogenated. The video below shows Steve Newport’s experience battling and improving his symptoms of Alzheimer’s.
