  • Coconut oil is considered a healthy fat as it has many amazing and ancient healing properties. There is much debate about whether saturated fats are good for you, and part of the confusion comes from categorizing all saturated fats together. The truth is that not all saturated fats are the same. Below is a little background to explain what makes coconut oil different from other saturated fats.

    WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SATURATED FATS?

    Saturated fats from animal sources are made up mostly of long chain fatty acids, our bodies have to work hard to break down these fats. Although coconut oil is a also a saturated fat, it is made up of medium chain fatty acids and it is this property of coconut oil that makes it different and healthier from other saturated fats. Medium chain fatty acids produce a whole host of health benefits. Coconut oil is nature’s richest source of these healthy medium chain fatty acids.

    WHY DOES FATTY ACID CHAIN LENGTH MATTER?

    The medium chain fatty acids in Coconut oil have many health benefits over long chain fatty acids found in other saturated fats:

     

     Medium chain fatty acids are easy to digest and therefore quickly absorbed in the body for energy. Long chain fatty acids must be digested with enzymes from the liver and take a longer time to breakdown. Medium chain fatty acids have anti-microbial effects, which helps protect against viruses and bacteria that contribute to gastro-intestinal conditions and heart disease. Long chain fatty acids do not have this effect.
    Medium chain fatty acids are sent directly to your liver, where they are immediately converted into energy rather than being stored as fat. Long chain fatty acids are predominantly stored in your body as fat. Medium chain fatty acids such as lauric acid, which makes up at least 50 percent of coconut oil, can actually contribute to stimulate and maintain your body’s metabolism, leading to weight loss.


    WHY OUR OIL IS FRESHER, LIGHTER AND TASTIER THAN OTHER OILS

    Jimalie Organic Centrifuged Virgin Coconut Oil is made from fresh coconuts, requiring only 2 hours between husking the coconut and bottling the oil. Our FairTrade process begins where the coconuts are organically grown and is followed right through to the end product in your hand.

    Our unique centrifuge extraction method, is a chemical-free and low-temperature process which preserves the live enzymes, lauric acid, and all the other immune system building nutrients, delivering a product closest to the raw coconut oil as it appears in nature.
  • "...things like coconut oil can be really helpful to apply to the skin when it’s dry. It’s not only healthy to eat. It’s really healthy to be put on the skin. It’s a good moisturizer and it’s got some antimicrobial compounds in it. Acne is in part caused by bad bacteria so the antimicrobial compounds in coconut oil can help with that and with the chafing that’s associated with dry skin." Chris Kresser
