Trans fatty acids, also known as trans fat, is an artery-clogging fat that is formed when vegetable oils are hardened into margarine or shortening. It is found in many other foods besides margarine and shortening, however, including fried foods like French fries and fried chicken, doughnuts, cookies, pastries and crackers. Typically French fries have about 40 percent trans fatty acids and many popular cookies and crackers range from 30 percent to 50 percent trans fatty acids. Doughnuts have about 35 percent to 40 percent trans fatty acids.
Trans fat is known to increase blood levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL), or “bad” cholesterol, while lowering levels of high-density lipoprotein (HDL), known as “good” cholesterol. It can also cause major clogging of arteries, type 2 diabetes and other serious health problems, and was found to increase the risk of heart disease. Many food companies use trans fat instead of oil because it reduces cost, extends storage life of products and can improve flavour and texture.
This 100% raw coconut oil comes from coconuts harvested from the Pacific Islands. The coconut flesh is coldpressed. Very few coconut oil products found on the market are in the same league as A Sip of Paradise! Coconut oil consists of 90+% medium chained, saturated fat - a very important building block of every cell in the human body.
The cholesterol-lowering properties of coconut oil are a direct result of its ability to stimulate thyroid function. In the presence of adequate thyroid hormone, cholesterol (specifically LDL- holesterol) is converted by enzymatic process to the vitally necessary anti-aging hormones, pregnenolone, progesterone and DHEA. These substances are required to help prevent heart disease, senility, obesity, cancer and other diseases associated with aging and chronic degeneration. Coconut oil contains up to 50% lauric acid, which has powerful anti-microbial and anti-fungal properties.
