Loving Earth Raw Organic Coconut Butter
Loving Earth's coconut oil is called "Coconut Butter" because its texture is creamier and more buttery than other coconut oils. Why? Because it is produced using wet method centrifuge extraction, cold-pressing the oil from fresh coconuts within 15 minutes of breaking the seal on the coconut shell.
It is raw, light tasting and smooth - unlike any coconut oil you've ever experienced.
Gluten free. Low GI. Vegan. 450ml
Health Benefits Coconut butter is known for its Lauric acid content, and for its quality, healthy saturated fats. Cholesterol does not naturally occur in the plant kingdom. Unlike saturated animal fats, Coconut oil is cholesterol free, making it safe for people with cholesterol challenges. Lauric acid promotes immune function through its transformation into monolaurin once ingested.
Studies show that Monolaurin is able to destroy lipid coated viruses and bacteria including influenza, herpes and HIV.
Cellular Health Our body's cells are comprised primarily of saturated fats. Regular consumption of Coconut Butter promotes cellular health reducing oxidative damage from free radical exposure. Internal cellular protection translates externally to healthier, more hydrated, younger looking skin.
Weight Loss Medium Chain triglycerides (MCT's) are abundantly found in coconut butter. Unlike other forms of fat, the liver is able to metabolise MCT's similarly to how it utilises carbohydrates as a fuel source.
Coconut butter's digestibility means that it is quickly absorbed by our bodies, and not left to circulate the blood stream like other fats. The MCT's in coconut oil have also been shown to have thyroid supporting mechanisms. Studies that were conducted on the basal (resting) metabolic rate of people who ate MCT's comparative to those participants who consumed more LCT's (long chain triglycerides i.e. vegetable oils) were found on average to have a 12% increase in their basal metabolic rates.Loving Earth
