Franklands Organic coconut oil is a premium quality product, produced to the highest international quality standards with perfect body, colour, flavor and aroma.
Organic coconut oil is rich in nutirients and anti-oxidants and widely known for its health benefits when used in cooking, but did you know that the benefits of coconut oil reach far beyond the kitchen? Unrefined coconut oil, also known as virgin coconut oil (VCO), can improve your overall health – not only for your body but for your mind and spirit as well.
Coconut Oil benefits the “Mind”
Coconut oil is beneficial for the mind in a variety of ways. Coconut oil contains particular fats that do not need to be digested by the liver and are therefore more easily converted into energy. This boost of energy naturally increases our level of concentration and clarity of thought. Furthermore, coconut oil has been used in research to find a cure for Alzheimer’s Disease and other neurodegenerative diseases. In particular, Dr. Mary Newport, author of ‘Alzheimer’s Disease: What If There Was A Cure? The Story of Ketones’, researched how coconut oil can help increase ketone levels in the brain. Ketones are vitally important as they provide an alternative fuel to the brain for people suffering from these diseases.
Organic Coconut Oil and the “Body”
The benefits of organic coconut oil for the body are wide-ranging. Coconut oil is easily absorbed by the skin, which makes it a wonderful massage oil. Coconut oil has no adverse effects and is also very soft and nourishing. It acts as a very effective moisturiser and helps keep your skin looking younger by reducing fine lines and wrinkles. To top it off, organic coconut oil is natural, which means that you are not applying any harmful or toxic chemicals on your skin. Coconut oil has also been known to improve internal bodily functions. For example, coconut oil contains: Lauric acid, which is antibacterial, antimicrobial and antiviral. Some sources suggest that coconut oil can increase your metabolism and reduce the secretion of insulin, thereby acting as a preventative measure against diabetes. However evidence around this is still being gathered.
Organic Coconut Oil and the “Spirit”
As mentioned, organic coconut oil has nourishing and soothing benefits when used as a massage oil. Massage has numerous benefits and many of which are more than skin deep. Massage can relieve stress, promote relaxation and relieve headaches and pain. Coconut oil is also a very effective carrier oil in aromatherapy. Aromatherapy is a complementary therapy that primarily uses essential oils for improving our overall wellbeing. When these essential oils are diluted with a carrier oil, such as an unrefined coconut oil, they can be used directly on the skin. Coconut oil has very stable properties and does not go rancid, which means that it maintains the integrity of the essential oils it is blended with. Essential oils each have their own unique properties and can improve wellbeing in many ways, particularly by reducing stress and improving mood.
So next time you reach for a jar of organic coconut oil in the pantry, think about what your mind, body or soul needs right now because relief might not be as far away as you think.
