Health Benefits – Medium-Chain-Fatty-Acids (MCFAs)
Coconut oil is composed predominately of medium-chain fatty acids (MCFA), also known as medium-chain triglycerides (MCT). MCFA are very different from LCFA. MCFA help to lower the risk of both atherosclerosis and heart disease. It is primarily due to the MCFA in coconut oil that makes it so special and so beneficial. Coconut oil is nature’s richest source of these healthy MCFAs.
While the MCFAs are burned for energy, rather than stored as fat like other oils.
About 50% of these MCFA’s are made up of lauric acid which is known for its anti-microbial and anti-bacterial properties.
This is the most important essential fatty acid in building and maintaining the body’s immune system.
The only other rich dietary source of lauric acid apart from coconut oil is “Mothers Milk).Coconut oil is a vegetable oil, it is naturally cholesterol and gluten free.
