The coconut is a delight for the senses and the body, the very symbol of tropical paradise. This idyllic and fun tree nut restores your balance and harmony. Among oils it is light and sweet to cook with, soothing to the skin and nerves, nourishing while stimulating energy.
A Balm for Your NervesAre you overly nervous and strung out? Your nerves may be parched for fats. All nerves are coated in a fatty layer called the myelin sheath, which guides nerve impulses and insulates the neuron from hyperactivity. When the fatty layer is dried out or deficient, your nerves will be easily agitated and anxious, thirsting for a balm that can ease this overstimulation. A tablespoon of coconut butter restores tranquility, bringing the serenity of the tropics closer to home. With its unctuous silkiness and rich enticing aroma, coconut butter may be the ultimate 'neuron' comfort food, with a satisfaction that is 'marrow deep'.
A Boost For Your EnergyWhile most nourishing, oily foods depress metabolism, coconut butter is unusual in its ability to support the thyroid and improve metabolism. Coconut oil contains healthy fats and fatty acids that are quickly and easily absorbed, digested, metabolized and utilized by your body, ideal for nourishing the elderly and those debilitated from disease. Coconut's stimulating richness restores your vigor and vitality with a nutty aroma that gratifies the senses, a nourishing alternative to coffee that treats the root cause of exhaustion without the jitters of caffeine. Try supplementing your diet with coconut butter daily to boost your energy efficiently and effectively!
Strengthen Your Liver & Soften Your EmotionsCoconut butter has a luxuriant richness that feeds you and your liver. Ayurveda suggests that an agitated liver should be moistened with fats, and pleased by sweet, delightful aromas like rose petals and coconut. By nature an ambitious organ, the liver falls victim to intense, hot blooded emotions and pitta internal heat conditions. Coconut oil replenishes a liver deficient in fats, and has special cooling properties to soothe an overheated liver. Coconut oil protects the liver from damage done through alcohol. It is one of the best Pitta pacifying oils for Ayurvedic massage. Coconut oil cools and eases the tension accompanying liver overactivity, restoring grace and kindness. Your relationships will benefit from your new, more yielding & charitable disposition.
The Science Behind Coconut FatThis vital oil, once shunned as being unhealthy because it is high in saturated fats, is now considered by many as a magical health food. The difference between coconut butter and other saturated fats is in the size of the fat molecules. Long chain fats are hard to digest, and pass directly into the lymphatic system. The fats in coconut are medium chain fatty acids (MFCA's). These MFCA's are quickly digested, even without the aid of pancreatic enzymes, and are transported via the hepatic portal vein to the liver. MFCA's never enter the lymphatic system or blood stream, so they don't clog arteries like their longer chained relatives. Instead, they are light, easy to digest, and quickly converted to energy. Coconut butter actually lowers cholesterol and boosts fat metabolism.
Supports ImmunityCoconut oil contains high levels of a fatty acid called lauric acid, an anti-viral substance. Coconut oil has also been shown in research studies to have anti-microbial qualities, which have an adverse effect on fungus, bacteria, and yeast. Coconut oil also appears to have a natural anti-inflammatory effect, which ultimately supports your immune system.
Please know that coconut butter arrives as a solid. You must heat it on a stovetop, bowl of hot water or a hot heating pad to release to buttery goodness!
