Check out SEVEN of the incredible health benefits you can gain just by adding a little Cocavo into your daily diet and lifestyle. From weight loss, to skin and dental hygiene, to reduction in symptoms of arthritis and Alzheimer’s. Cocavo is such an easy, delicious, and staple product for everyone.
Cardiovascular disease risk reductionCocavo contains no cholesterol, as the oil is extracted from plants. Cocavo actually helps to the support the cardiovascular system as high concentrations of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) are found in Cocavo. MCT's not only help reduce blood cholesterol, but improve our LDL levels and introduce HDL cholesterol (read; 'Fast Fats – the good, the bad, and the 'superfoods').
Eye healthLutein, a nutrient which improves eye health and may lower the risk of age-related eye diseases like cataracts and macular degeneration is found in Cocavo. Your body doesn't create lutein, so you must obtain it from your diet.
Bioavailability of nutrientsSome nutrients need fat in order to be absorbed by your body, eating healthy fats like Cocavo while eating vegetables increases the absorption of carotenoid antioxidants up to 17-fold. Which means you can get more out of your normal diet just by adding Cocavo.
Reduce symptoms of ArthritisMay relieve the symptoms reduce the pain and stiffness associated with osteoarthritis, blocking a protein that causes tissue and bone loss, resulting in anti-inflammatory effects.
Skin health and beautyCocavo is great for incorporating into DIY beauty care. Cocavo is high in fatty acids, omega's 3 and 6, and vitamin A and E. Applying Cocavo directly to the skin can improve symptoms of psoriasis, and promote faster healing of wounds. Cocavo improves the moisture content of your skin, and can reduce the effects of eczema. Cocavo protects against hair damage too and can be applied directly onto hair as a conditioner. Cocavo can also be used in a process called oil pulling (used like mouthwash), which can kill some of the harmful bacteria in the mouth, improving dental health and reducing bad breath.
Metabolism boostingThe high fatty acid content can be converted into ketones in the body which can significantly reduce appetite, leading to reduced body weight over long term use.
Relieving symptoms of epileptic seizures and Alzheimer'sThe MCTs in coconut oil can increase blood concentration of ketone bodies, which can help reduce seizures related to epilepsy. Studies have suggested that MCT’s can increase blood levels of ketones, supplying energy for the brain cells of Alzheimer's patients and relieving symptoms.
