Coconut oil and the benefits of its medium chain fatty acids

There are many coconut oil products for the skin and hair that support the natural chemical balance of the skin. So, why is coconut oil now seen as a new all round health food as well?

It’s all to do with the fatty acids in the coconut flesh. The majority of fatty acids that we consume via our food are long chain fatty acids. The fatty acids found in coconut oil are medium chain fatty acids and coconut oil is one of the best sources for medium chain fatty acids.

Our bodies utilise each fatty acid in a different way depending on its size. Medium chain fatty acids have a very positive effect on the body. Some of the benefits of medium chain fatty acids include,

  • A negative effect on cholesterol.
  • Protection against heart disease.
  • Better absorption of vitamins, minerals and amino acids.
  • An improved digestion.
  • A lowering of body fat.

Medium chain fatty acids, which are found in coconut oil, are also used in the treatment of diarrhoea, Celiac disease, Liver disease and Alzheimer’s disease. See Daily Mail article on Coconut Oil benefits and Alzheimer’s disease. In addition to these benefits, coconut oil is also a nutritional source of energy.

So take a fresh look at the humble coconut. It’s overflowing with potential health benefits.

How to squat safely for hard thigh muscles ~ strong glutes

1. Learn to squat safely before you lift the weight.

2. Try to work on flexibility before you attempt the move.

3. A bent bar is easier to hold in position, so if you have one in your gym use that one.

4. Place the bar on the squat rack when lifting, as it will be much safer.

5. Hold the bar properly with your shoulder blades pushed together.

6. Rest the bar on top of your tensed shoulder blades. Hold the bar with the whole of your hands not just the fingers.

7. Make sure your hands are the same distance apart from the centre of the bar.

8. Place your feet apart slightly wider than your hips. You may need to adjust later to a wider, more comfortable position.

What are amino acids?

Amino acids are either essential or non essential. Essential amino acids are acids that cannot be independantly produced by the human body. Therefore, we need to obtain these acids from the food we eat.

Amino acids are the basic building blocks found in every cell of our body. They produce the proteins we need to survive.

Amino acid  benefits include; repair to organ or muscle tissue, an improved immune system, healthy hair, teeth, nails and skin, improved sleep.

They are also of great benefit to bodybuilders who need to repair muscle tissue after weight training.
Please see more in the Natural Matter health and fitness shop for the entire BioCare range. If you have any questions regarding this product please contact info@naturalmatter.co.uk and we will try our best to help.
