Coconut Oil Can Relieve Fatigue of Fibromyalgia and Even Discourage Weight Gain
What can really help to give you sustained energy? Coconut oil is a very special type of fat that is quickly used by the body to provide energy. It is a saturated fat called medium chain fatty acids or MCFA's, for short. They ensure that you have energy that lasts for several hours. This is especially important when you are suffering from fatigue. It gives you the boost that you need because medium chain fatty acids our quickly converted and rapidly provide energy to you. You will feel more alert, and more supported in your energy reserves.
You may have been led to believe that saturated fats are unhealthy and can cause weight gain. The studies that seemed to prove this were all done using HYDROGENATED oil from coconut. Those types of fats which we now call TRANS FATS are very hard to get rid of once they are ingested. Fresh, natural coconut oil is real food. Fat is also a much needed nutrient. We need it to properly absorb certain vitamins and minerals. Fat soluble vitamins need fats to be utilized effectively by the digestive system. Also, fats themselves are extremely important to good health. We even call them ESSENTIAL FATS because without them we would die. Just ask any doctor.
