In 1985, a national campaign against saturated fats was heavily promoted. As coconut oil is a saturated fat, it was also said to be “unhealthy” and the public was encouraged to eliminate it completely. Instead, soybean oil was promoted as a healthier alternative.
About 20 years later, the truth was finally revealed. Although coconut oil is a saturated fat, it was not the same as other saturated fats, like lard. Coconut oil in particular is composed of medium chain triglycerides, which is extremely beneficial for one’s health and the metabolism.
If you’re looking to lose weight, there are quite a few natural substances that can definitely help, organic coconut oil being one of these. For one, it acts as a natural fungicide (kills fungi), bactericidal (kills bacteria) and even reduces infections related to herpes. Overall, it helps detoxify the body and will do wonders for the skin.
For those suffering from hypothyroidism, organic coconut oil has been quite a blessing. One of the side effects of hypothyroidism is a colder body temperature, which goes hand in hand with a slow metabolism. The good news is that coconut oil can raise the body’s temperature, so much that it can be seen on a thermometer.
For many years, I searched for a natural supplement that would make a significant difference for those dealing with hypothyroidism. I’ve never seen anything as affective as organic coconut oil when it comes to increasing body temperature and the metabolism. With a daily dose of coconut oil, even someone suffering from hypothyroidism can lose weight.
While developing products for my company RelaxSlim, we searched for ways to improve the qualities of organic coconut oil even more. After quite a bit of research and experimentation, we found that mixing organic coconut oil with a Japanese supplement called CoQ10 did exactly that! The CoQ10 supplement is a “co-enyzyme” that has not only been used to fight cancer, but will increase the supply of oxygen to the cells, thus improving one’s energy and metabolism. This supplement can also help improve memory, as it increases energy for all of the body’s cells, the brain cells included.
Our special organic coconut oil / CoQ10 blend is called COCO-10 Plus. It is typically mixed into a whey protein shake (such as our Metabolic Protein), but can also be taken straight, as it doesn’t have much of a taste. This oil can simultaneously increase the metabolism and help detoxify the body. To avoid discomfort that can come from detoxing, we suggest that the dose be increased gradually (i.e. – Start with ½ tablespoon daily for one week and increase by ½ tablespoon each week, up to 2-3 tablespoons).
Should you want to read more about the benefits of coconut oil, there are quite a few books out there, but the best one in my opinion is the “The Coconut Oil Miracle” by Bruce Fife, a naturopathic physician.
To learn more about RelaxSlim’s COCO-10 PLUS supplement go HERE. As a note, children, diabetics and the elderly can safely use this oil, as it is merely a blend of organic coconut oil and a natural supplement (CoQ10). It really is a true blessing for anyone who wants to lose weight or increase his or her energy levels.
Of course, to see the best results, use COCO-10 Plus in combination with a proper, healthy diet, such as the 2×1 Diet.
