Metabolism and Coconut Oil

Metabolism is the process by which the body converts what we eat and drink into energy

Most foods contain carbohydrates, which the body breaks down into simple sugars — the major source of energy for the body

Medium chain fatty acids (MCFAs) in coconut oil can easily permeate both membranes of the mitochondria and provide the cell with a quick and efficient source of energy

NOTE: Mitochondria are known as the powerhouses of the cell

Mitocondria are organelles that act like a digestive system, taking in nutrients, breaking them down, and creating energy for the cells

MCFAs are easily absorbed by the energy-producing organelles of the cells, therefore increases metabolism

MCFAs are channel directly to the liver and converting into energy; now the body gets a boost of energy.

MCFAs in coconut oil are digested and absorbed into the blood stream and used by the body for energy: especially by pancreas, liver and the digestive system

Coconut oil is great news! for people who normally have feeling fatigued

This burst of energy has a stimulating effect on the entire body.

People, with relatively good health, significant health problems, and who are overweight notice a speeding up of their heart rate, metabolic rate, and body temperature, when they add coconut oil to their diet

To enjoy the best benefit a person should consume coconut oil on a daily basis

Besides increasing your energy level, there are other very important benefits that results from boosting your metabolic rate: it helps protect you from illness and speeds healing

When metabolism is increased, cells function at a higher rate of efficiency

They heal injuries faster, old and diseased cells are replaced quicker

New cells are generated at an increased rate to replace the worn-out ones

The body's immune system functions better

Long chain fatty acids are usually digested with digestive enzymes from the liver and take a long time to breakdown

Once digested long chain fatty acids go on to be stored in adipose tissue to be used later

The long chain fatty acids, which are digested by the body, must be linked up with carrier proteins (they are called lipoproteins) and carried throughout the body

Lipoproteins: Cholesterol travels in the blood in packages

They can be used by the cells or organs for energy or stored in adipose tissue or dropped off on the sides of arteries, etc.

The fats which do this are cholesterol, long chain saturated fats, monounsaturated fat, and polyunsaturated fat.

For energy, if the body uses carbohydrates, insulin produced by the pancreas, is required for the glucose molecules to be able to enter into the cell

The body develop a resistance to insulin as they get older and it becomes increasingly more difficult for the body to get these molecules into the cells.

Any extra glucose which can or does not get used by the body for energy is turned into triglycerides and then carried by carriers all over the body

NOTE: The most common causes of high triglycerides are obesity and poorly controlled diabetes. If you are overweight and are not active, you may have high triglycerides

The body can have high triglycerides in your blood and not eat an ounce of fat

Even total vegetarians can have high triglycerides from eating a high carbohydrate diet

Triglycerides and the lipoproteins, in the same manner as glucose, travel across the cell membrane to be used as energy, and they too require enzymes as carriers in order to permeate both membranes of the cell's mitochondria where their energy is released.

Since the longer chain fatty acids demand special enzymes to pull them through the double membrane, the energy production process is much slower and taxing on the enzyme reserves

Important to understand that Long chain fatty acids slows down metabolism

"Main purpose of fatty acids is to assist the adrenal and thyroid glands, which help to regulate body weight

Fatty acids help keep the skin healthy, prevent early aging, and promote weight loss by helping the body process cholesterol.

More importantly, they help to get rid of the arteries of cholesterol build up"

Metabolism with coconut oil produce energy. Other dietary fats produce fat.
