Virgin coconut oil is processed differently from hydrogenated coconut oil and when researching scientific trials you need to make sure the research was completed on virgin coconut oil. Virgin coconut oil hasn’t been treated with high levels of heat, refined, bleached or deoderised. Significantly, virgin coconut oil doesn’t contain Trans Fats which are associated with insulin-resistance, diabetes, cancer and autoimmune diseases.

In the 1920s and 30s it was discovered that the composition of virgin coconut oil is different to that of other fats and oils. It was discovered that it is composed of medium-chain-fatty-acids (MCFAs) compared to other saturated fats which contain long chain fatty acids (LCFAs).

Improved Vitamin absorption

Some vitamins and nutrients are water soluble and some are fat soluble. Fat soluble nutrients and vitamins include lutein, beta-carotene, Vitamins A, D, K and E (Vitamin A is essential for good vision, Vitamin D for bone health, K for blood clotting, and E for limiting the formation of harmful free radicals.

In order for your body to absorb fat soluble nutrients and vitamins you need a little bit of healthy fat in your diet. For this reason, we are encouraged to sprinkle salads and even vegetables with some dietary fat such as olive or coconut oil.

Thanks to the ability of these vitamins and nutrients to be dissolved into fats, we are able to absorb them into our body and bloodstream. The dietary fats will carry the nutrients and vitamins to our liver where they will be stored until needed.

In two other studies it was found that medium-chained triglycerides (MCT) in our diet, or supplementing our diet, by improving vitamin absorption and restricting dietary long chain fats without limiting the intake of proteins are necessary for growth.

Conclusion: Virgin coconut oil may increase your ability to absorb fat soluble vitamins and minerals more efficiently.

Your immune system and coconut oil

About 50% of the MCTs or MCFA’s in coconut oil are made up of lauric acid. Lauric acid converts to monolaurin, a compound found in breast milk that strengthens a baby’s immunity. Research has found that this medium-chain fatty acid (MCFA) actually disrupts the lipid membranes of offending organisms.

Research has shown that coconut oil is a proven:

  • anti-inflammatory
  • antibacterial
  • anti-fungal, and
  • antibiotic.
