Raw Coconut Oil?

People have asked me if cooking virgin coconut oil (VCO) will make it lose the enzyme content, and wondered if VCO is better when eaten uncooked.

You don't have to worry about cooking VCO. There are no enzymes in the coconut oil. That is why it can sit on a shelf in your home for a year or more, and not go bad. The enzymes would start breaking it down if they were in there, and it wouldn't last very long. The benefits of coconut oil do not come from the enzymes. It comes from the medium chain fatty acids that turn into energy in the body instead of fat.

Now, if you want to get enzymes with your coconut oil, try eating a fresh coconut. The coconut oil is squeezed out of coconuts to make VCO. A fresh coconut will still have the oil, plus the coconut meat, the coconut water, and all the enzymes. I think this is one of the best ways to get your coconut oil, plus the extra benefits that come from the raw coconut and its enzymes.

Next week I will tell you how to buy, open and eat a coconut.
