Coconut Oil benefits – Health & Beauty
Recommendations for enjoying all the Coconut Oil benefits
Coconut oil benefits are endless. Organic Raw Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is a very functional food product. It has so many internal and external uses. It is delicious, highly nutritious and has a delicate fresh flavour. It is not just a cooking oil, it has several benefits for health!
The benefits of coconut oil for Health & Wellbeing:
One of the benefits of coconut oil is that is packed with nutrients which provide an excellent source of energy.
Mild laxative effect – this helps to regulate bowel movements so is a big help for those suffering from constipation.
Cholesterol free. It’s the saturated oils which come from animals which are cholesterol rich. Coconut oil is saturated oil from a plant and is completely cholesterol free!
One of the benefits of Coconut oil is that it contains a miracle ingredient – Lauric Acid, which is also found in breast milk.
It has a delightfully mild flavour and is pleasant to eat straight from the jar. As a part of healthy balanced and nutritional diets you can start with a teaspoon or even half a teaspoon after the breakfast. Then gradually progress to a dosage that is comfortable for you. Most people take 3 tablespoons daily but we recommend taking one tablespoon or as recommended by your practitioner.
A tablespoon is 112.5 calories with 13 grams of fat and without any protein or carbohydrates.
One of the benefits of coconut oil is that is lower in calories than any other oil! Most others have at least 9 calories per gram whereas this has just 6.8 calories per gram. Nutritionists often recommend taking a tablespoon 30 minutes before meals as a part of a weight loss and nutritional diet. Take advantage of the extra virgin coconut oil benefits for weight loss diets.

The concencus among nutrition experts is that carbohydrates should account for the bulk of calories in an athlete’s diet (about 60%). Fat intake should be limited to no more than 20% of total calorie intake. When greater amounts of fat are consumed, they argue, athletic performance may be hampered. It is true that the quantity of fat in the diet is important, but it is the quality of the fat which is even more important.
If you participate in any kind of sports, or keep fit at a gym, then, like an athlete, your diet should be rich in whole grains, fruits and vegetables, nuts and lean meats, and include the benefits of coconut oil.
The benefits of coconut oil for Cooking:
The benefits of coconut oil are countless. It’s ideal for cooking, baking and frying and all food preparations. Plus it’s healthy too. It’s cholesterol and Trans-fat free and because it is resistant to high temperatures can safely be substituted for your usual cooking oil!
Recent Nutritional Research on The Benefits of Coconut Oil has revealed that vegetable oils such as sunflower, soya and corn are anything but ideal for cooking. These oils have a significant inclination to suffer heat damage and therefore oxidise during cooking. One of the benefits of Coconut oil is that is very stable when oxidised. If a recipe calls for olive oil, vegetable oil, butter or margarine replace with coconut oil, because it is proven to be stable enough to withstand high heat.
Coconut Oil has a totally different chemical formula of saturated fat called Medium Chain Fatty Acids because it does not need to go through partial hydrogenation, it has no trans-fats. Unlike other oils, it can be reheated without producing harmful free radicals.
Is very stable; it won’t turn stale quickly and can be stored in the pantry for several years.
Use it for cooking and baking in place of other oils and fats.
One of the coconut oil benefits is that ours unlike any others doesn’t absorb into food when frying; nor does it splatter, and it can be used over again and again. It’s an excellent, healthy substitute to use when frying, deep frying, stir-frying, baking, and sauté cooking.
(Note: When baking it will be quicker and simpler if you use a food processor for cutting the oil into the flour)
Try the coconut oil benefits when making sauces, snacks, spreads, soups and main dishes such as delicious stews and casseroles. You can also brush our organic coconut oil on meat or vegetables before grilling or barbecuing and for roasting potatoes. It is also fantastic for making your favourite desserts such as cakes, pies and puddings.

Beverages and Smoothies
You can also take advantage of the benefits of coconut oil by making delicious smoothies and drinks.
You can make great-tasting drinks by mixing with milk or juices.
In order to make a smoothie, you should also warm up the oil and then mix it with coconut milk first, and then add whatever ingredients take your fancy!

Blends well with cottage cheese or yogurt, so try this quick recipe for a lovely snack.

The best way to make ice-cream is to use an ice-cream maker that produces a smooth, light product – one that is superior in taste and texture. If you do not have an ice-cream maker you can use a blender.
One of the benefits of coconut oil is that it gives the ice-cream a richer, creamier taste and texture, especially if you also combine it with coconut cream.
Indian and Thai Curry Dishes
Asian style cuisine has a long standing association with the benefits of coconut in all its varieties; therefore in order to make tasty curry ensure only to use quality ingredients such as TIANA’s products.
You can try the benefits of coconut oil at breakfast. As a great start to your day add to your bowl of porridge instead of butter or golden syrup. It has a wonderful taste, with no rancid after taste or unpleasant smell. One or two tablespoons together with our Organic Raw Active Wild Flower Honey on your toast are fantastic for breakfast.
The benefits of coconut oil for Hair & Skin Health
Makes a wonderful, natural and highly effective skin moisturiser and is also an excellent hair conditioner. No wonder these days is incorporated as an ingredient into a wide range of skin care products, hair treatments, and body and sun protection lotions.

Premium quality TIANA Coconut Oil is especially produced for beauty, has extra moisturising properties and is quickly absorbed into the skin, making it feel smooth and soft but will never leave hair feeling greasy.
Dry skin typically results from a deficiency in the oil and moisture that required to keep the skin lubricated. This may result in flaking, scaling and even cracking happening to the skin.
