Nuton MCT oil has been increasing in popularity over the past few years, and there is a good reason behind this. It has a lot of health benefits starting from improving body immunity, increasing mineral absorption, anti-aging properties and also stimulating the metabolism resulting in weight loss.
Although it is a fact that about 90% of coconut oils fatty acids are saturated, they are different from the saturated fats found in animal products and that is why it is healthy. The saturated fatty acids in coconut come from medium chain triglycerides (MTCs) which are not stored by the body as fat. The body chooses to use these MCTs to provide energy for the body, and therefore you will utilize them for energy instead of storing them as fat in blood vessels. MCTs are shorter than the long chain triglycerides that are found in other fats and oils and are easily broken down making them a quick and efficient energy source. Also, the fast digestion of MCT in the body has a calorie burning effect which will allow you burn other calories in the body besides those from the oil.
Another health benefit of Nuton MCT oil is that the saturated fats they have helped to raise the level of good cholesterol unlike the saturated fat in animal products.
Coconut oil is also useful for boosting ones immunity. It has an antibiotic effect in the body which kills disease causing bacterial while sparing the good ones helping to achieve a healthy gut. It also enhances the immunity because of high concentration of specific fatty acids namely, lauric and capric acids which have antibacterial, antimicrobial and antiviral properties. Coconut oil also improves absorption of calcium resulting in strong bones, magnesium which improves nerve function and amino acids for strong muscle from the food we eat.
Coconut oil has plenty of uses. Coconut oil can be used as a substitute for any other fat or vegetable oils from an alternative to butter or for cooking and baking. Coconut oil can also be applied as oil onto dry skin or to help heal sunburns in the skin. It can also help improve the condition of the hair by minimizing protein loss and also soothes dry scalp conditions.
