Health is wealth. Additionally, having a healthy body can make people have fewer worries and be happy in life. If you are somebody who thinks the same way, you should beware of cooking oils with canola, sunflower, safflower, soy, or corn as a base.

Don’t believe it when people say that these cooking oils are good for your health. On the contrary, as soon as these oils are heated, their antioxidants quickly turn into harmful toxins. The safest alternative is virgin coconut oil, a kind of oil that is now recommended by health experts.

What is virgin coconut oil and what are its benefits?

In previous years, coconut oil was regarded to be dangerous, but now, this oil extracted from matured coconut fruits are hailed by health experts here and abroad. Primarily, experts are saying that this oil does not have the capacity to react with heat and produce harmful chemicals. Said in another way, this oil does not undergo oxidation damage.

Coconut oil has MCFAs (or medium-chained fatty acids) which are usually in a form that can be easily absorbed and digested by the human body. On the other hand, long-chained fatty acids coming from vegetable oils (such as those mentioned above) have larger molecules, which is why they cause more toxicity in the body.

Coconut oil contains lauric acid, a substance that is converted to monolaurin. Monolaurin has powerful antiprotozoal, antiviral and antibacterial properties.
