(NaturalNews) Health is wealth. Additionally, having a healthy body can make people have fewer worries and be happy in life. If you are somebody who thinks the same way, you should beware of cooking oils with canola, sunflower, safflower, soy, or corn as a base.

Don't believe it when people say that these cooking oils are good for your health. On the contrary, as soon as these oils are heated, their antioxidants quickly turn into harmful toxins. The safest alternative is virgin coconut oil, a kind of oil that is now recommended by health experts.

What is virgin coconut oil and what are its benefits?

In previous years, coconut oil was regarded to be dangerous, but now, this oil extracted from matured coconut fruits are hailed by health experts here and abroad. Primarily, experts are saying that this oil does not have the capacity to react with heat and produce harmful chemicals. Said in another way, this oil does not undergo oxidation damage.

Coconut oil has MCFAs (or medium-chained fatty acids) which are usually in a form that can be easily absorbed and digested by the human body. On the other hand, long-chained fatty acids coming from vegetable oils (such as those mentioned above) have larger molecules, which is why they cause more toxicity in the body.

Coconut oil contains lauric acid, a substance that is converted to monolaurin. Monolaurin has powerful antiprotozoal, antiviral and antibacterial properties.

Choosing high-grade virgin coconut oil

Remember, there are different ways of preparing virgin coconut oil so check that out before purchasing. Most of what is available in the market are made from dried coconut meat or copra. Coconut oil from copra is cheap, but it can be unsanitary and unfit for consumption. Furthermore, some manufacturers of copra coconut oil use dangerous preparation processes such as refining, bleaching and deodorizing. These processes actually diminish the nutrient content of the coconut meat.

Look for coconut oil products that have gone through the most natural manufacturing processes. Choose coconut oils that are sourced directly from fresh coconut fruits and processed using refrigeration. Cooling coconut meat does not require the use of additives, preservatives and other harmful manufacturing chemicals.

Other healthy parts of coconut fruits

If you have a chance to grab a coconut fruit, make sure that you take advantage of all its edible parts. All of them are sources of nutrients.

Coconut water is full of electrolytes while coconut cream is a good source of good cholesterols. Coconut cream is a common ingredient of soups, rice-based desserts, curries and other Asian delicacies.

Virgin coconut oil and the edible parts of coconut fruits should be incorporated into your diet. You'll be amazed at how much it can help you keep your body in shape while enjoying the peace with the knowledge that it won't do you any harm.
