Baraka Virgin Coconut Oil - The Wonder Product

What is virgin coconut oil?

Coconut oil is described as the healthiest oil on earth. The difference between normal coconut oil and basic coconut oil lies in the source, method of extraction, and its benefits.

Ordinary coconut oil is extracted by milling the copra (coconut kernels). The copra is crushed and pressed in the mills. The extraction then goes through fermentation, churning, refrigeration and enzymes are later added to separate the oil from the water..

In the case of virgin coconut oil, the process of extraction does not allow the heat to go above 600C. Therefore, the production is much more complicated and attention is paid to ensure that the kernels and the coconut milk are not subjected to too much heat or sunlight. Virgin coconut oil is the extracted by cold compression of fresh, dried coconut kernels. This assists in retaining the greatest degree of aroma and flavour.

Benefits of Virgin Coconut Oil for Hair

Virgin coconut oil is the best product for your hair compared to other oils or expensive hair products. Despite a person's gender, age, hair texture or hair type, coconut oil helps repair dry and damaged hair and also assists hair growth.

Coconut oil repairs dry and damaged hair by penetrating into the hair fibers and acting as a moisturizer. Coconut oil contains lauric acid, a healthy form of saturated fat found in palm oils, which easily penetrates hair fibers and bond with hair proteins due to its low molecular weight. The saturated fats in coconut oil are medium chain fatty acids or triglycerides. This assists in reducing the protein loss in hair. Coconut oil can be applied before or after washing your hair.

Benefits of Virgin Coconut Oil for Skin

Virgin coconut oil is a good replacement for expensive moisturizing creams. A common misconception about using oils such as virgin coconut oil on you face is that it could lead to breakouts. Contradictory to this belief, virgin coconut oil can actually help fight acne and eczema.

Just like in hair, the coconut oil easily penetrates into the skin and keeps it smooth. The fat contained in the oil will act as a barrier, preventing loss of moisture in the skin. The fatty acids and triglycerides in coconut oil also have the ability to inactivate bacteria, yeast, fungi and enveloped viruses, thus acting as an antibacterial medication for skin.

Benefits of Virgin Coconut Oil for Consumption

Replacing types of oil that are used for cooking with virgin coconut oil has many health benefits such as: prevention of heart disease and high blood pressure, curing UTI and kidney infection while protecting the liver, boosting the immune system, improvements in digestion and plenty more when consumed.

Coconut oil contains a high amount of natural saturated fats, which are good for your body compared to other forms of fat. The saturated fats will assist in increasing the healthy cholesterol (HDL) and also help convert the bad cholesterol (LDL) into healthy cholesterol. HDL helps lower the risk of heart disease.

Studies have proven that the medium chain fatty acids (MCFA) in virgin coconut oil will work as an antibiotic by disrupting the lipid coating on bacteria and eliminating them. Therefore, consuming virgin coconut oil can help to clear up and heal the urinary tract and prevent kidney infections. It can also protect the liver from direct damage.

The lauric acid in coconut oil is known to reduce candida, fight bacteria, and create a hostile environment for viruses in the body. As most of the infectious diseases in our body are caused by bad bacteria, funguses, viruses and parasites, taking a tablespoon of virgin coconut oil can help fight diseases.

As the MCFAs in coconut oil are smaller than long-chain fatty acids, thus require less work to be broken down and digested. Due to this, coconut oil puts less strain on the pancreas and digestive system compared to other fats and oils. The anti-inflammatory capabilities of the oil help heal injury to the digestive tract in patients who suffer from diseases such as gastritis.

Benefits of Virgin Coconut Oil for Weight Loss

Virgin coconut oil is a suitable product for active individuals and those looking to lose weight. It is a natural replacement for fat burning supplements and diet pills that can be harmful for the body.

The medium chained triglycerides (MCTs) that are contained in coconut oil differ from long chain fatty acids found in other oils. The difference lies in the fact that they are relatively soluble in water and can be rapidly absorbed by the body. The MCTs will be transported via blood to the hepatic portal system and bypass the fat storage cells. Therefore, instead of being deposited into those cells, they are metabolized by a process called beta-oxidation (fat burning) and will be utilized for energy.

Ketones are a natural way to fuel the brain when it can no longer use glucose. A rich source of fatty acids that can easily convert into ketones are MCT. According to studies, ketones could help improve symptoms in people who are suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer's disease is the most common form of dementia that results in memory loss and other cognitive abilities that interfere with day-to-day activities. The reason behind the improvements lie in the fact the ketones in virgin coconut oil will fuel the brain even when the body cannot break down glucose.
