Coconut (Cocos nucifera) is the fruit produced by the coconut palm tree. One coconut palm tree produces about 70 coconuts annually. The coconut hails from tropical regions of the globe and was dispersed in part by the fruit's buoyancy, which allows it to float great distances on water. Coconut oil comes from the smooth and fragrant pale inner part of the fruit, which has a fibrous shell-like exterior. Coconut oil is largely made up of medium-chain triglycerides, which are saturated fats that support the body's creation of energy.**
Coconut's oil and white flavorful flesh are staples in the cuisine of many regions of the world, including Africa, Asia and various countries in the Pacific. The fruit also has a long and rich history, particularly in India, where it is a regular presence in mythology and traditionally used in Hindu and Ayurvedic practices. Due to its stability when heated, coconut oil is often used internationally in cooking as an alternative to canola oil or butter.**
Coconut oil is a substantial source of medium-chain triglycerides, which fall into the category of "good" saturated fats, since they are easily absorbed by the body. These fatty acids, notably the highly researched compound lauric acid, help to produce energy. In addition to its benefits as an energy source, coconut oil is being investigated for maintaining normal metabolism, a property linked to its abundance of medium-chain fatty acids.**
Coconut Oil Products
Coconut oil products are sourced from the fruit's signature white flesh. The oil is available as a liquid, paste or in softgel form. The paste may be used for cooking; coconut oil is valued for its high smoking point.**
Coconut Oil Directions for Use
Consult with your health care provider before beginning any regular nutritional supplementation. While there is no standard dosage, coconut oil softgels are often presented at a level of 1,000 mg.**
