Metabolism Boosting Coconut Oil Coffee – A healthy way to enjoy your morning cup of joe!
This may not surprise you, but I put coconut oil in my coffee. It’s delicious! But I don’t do it just for it’s yummy-ness. Coconut oil gives me Super-Mama Powers! For realz. Coconut oil gives me a boost in energy and helps me to fight all the super germs I come in contact everyday when taking care of my Coconut Babies.
3 Reasons To Add Coconut Oil To Your Coffee
1. Coconut Oil Increases Your Energy
As I mentioned above, coconut oil gives you energy! How does this work? Well, coconut oil is made up of MCTs (Medium Chain Triglycerides). MCTs are more rapidly absorbed by the body and are quickly metabolized as fuel (not stored as fat).
2. Coconut Oil Speeds Up The Metabolism
When you eat MTCs (like in coconut oil) this results in accelerated metabolic conversion! That is, instead of being stored as fat, the calories contained in MCTs are very efficiently converted into fuel for immediate use by the body. According to this study, researchers assembled 40 female volunteers between the ages of 20 and 40 who suffered from abdominal obesity. Over a 12-week period, the women were given a daily dietary supplement comprising of 30 millimeters of either soybean oil or coconut oil. At the end of the 12-week study, the researchers found that the women who were given the coconut oil experienced a significant reduction in both BMI and waist circumference, as well as an increase in “good” HDL cholesterol. These results were not found in the group that was given soybean oil. “It appears that dietetic supplementation with coconut oil does not cause dyslipidemia and seems to promote a reduction in abdominal obesity,”.
3. Coconut Oil Boosts The Immune System
Almost 50% of the fatty acids in coconut oil is Lauric Acid (aka the super healthy fats found in human breast milk). Lauric acid is potent in antimicrobial properties. According to WebMD lauric acid is used for treating, “viral infections including influenza (the flu); swine flu; avian flu; the common cold; fever blisters, cold sores, and genital herpes caused by herpes simplex virus (HSV); genital warts caused by human papillomavirus (HPV); and HIV/AIDS. It is also used for preventing the transmission of HIV from mothers to children.”

HOW IT WORKS
Coconut oil is mostly made up of medium chain fatty acids (MCFA). These are processed directly by your liver, reducing the necessity for glucose production and not allowing the fat to be stored. MCFA-rich diets have also been shown to increase energy expenditure and metabolic rates. MCFAs, when processed by the liver, also produce ketones, which can be used by most cells in the body for energy, especially in the brain.
When you drink coconut oil in coffee you’re not only getting your heart pumping, but you’re also giving your brain and your metabolism a boost. It’s a win-win-win.
