Coconut Oil Powder
When looking at various fat burning and energy supplements, used to increase stamina and assist in weight loss, Coconut oil Powder is an increasingly popular ingredient. While the benefits of Coconut Oil Powder is very similar to those for regular Coconut Oil, there are a few small differences.
What Does Coconut Oil Powder Do?
Coconut Oil Powder is made up of varying medium chain triglycerides, which are fatty acids connected to a carbon backbone, that are broken down quickly to be used as energy. MCTs are naturally occurring in coconut, butter, cheeses, milk, and yogurt.
Coconut Oil Powder contains a high amount of Lauric Acid, an MCT that has anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties.
Lauric Acid Benefits
Lauric Acid has tremendous immune enhancing effects, and has been recommended to help combat infections, viruses, digestive disorders and chronic diseases.
Lauric Acid is also beneficial in regulating gut bacteria, by destroying bad bacteria in order to promote a healthy ratio of bacterial strains.
Lastly, Lauric Acid, along with all MCTs, can help promote weight loss. MCTs initiate fat burning processes, and can help reduce appetite.
Since Coconut Oil Powder typically has fiber content from the powder medium, it may provide a longer lasting energy source compared to regular Coconut Oil. Fiber slows digestion down slightly, meaning the MCTs may metabolize a little slower. This can be very beneficial depending on the type of activity Coconut Oil Powder is being used to improve. The fiber also helps promote satiety and reduce appetite as well.
Bringing It All Together
Coconut Oil Powder is a powerhouse ingredient used in various supplements, due to the powerful MCTs (especially Lauric Acid) that help promote energy, protect and strengthen immune health, and boost weight loss.
Coconut Oil Powder is both efficient and safe. It has found great traction in the supplement market over the last year, and we expect it to continue to grow in popularity. Did we mention it’s great for baking?
