Virgin Coconut Oil, 1 liter
Coconut oil contains fatty acids (90% of which are saturated fats) with powerful medicinal properties. Populations that eat coconut oil are in significantly better health than those who eat vegetable, soy or sunflower oils. In fact, coconut oil is known to reduce the effects of heart disease caused by other oils. It is even better than olive oil, because although olive oil is fine unheated, once heated it releases long-chain fatty acids that contribute to heart disease, whereas coconut oil releases medium-chain fatty acids which are metabolized differently.
They go straight to the liver from the digestive tract, where they are used as a quick source energy or turned into so-called ketone bodies, which can have therapeutic effects on brain disorders like epilepsy and Alzheimer’s.
It has also been established that the fatty acids in coconut oil increase the energy expenditure in a person by as much as 5%, resulting in weight loss over the long term.
Last but not least, coconut oil works miracles on the hair and skin. At Earth Seed we use it most of our products and exclusively in our kitchen. Indigenous to Ghana, this coconut oil is another of God's gifts to a people he provided everything else imaginable under the sun.
