Why Adding Coconut Oil to Your Coffee Helps Burn Fat and Lower Inflammation

Any desperate coffee lover finds it difficult to go through the day without a mug of their favorite coffee.  And if they do, they start miserable, sleepy, tired, and cranky.

Even more, it is very likely that at night when you are in bed, you think about the kind of coffee you want to have in the morning. But, as much as you want your favorite coffee creamer to be on the “nice list,” it is packed with a long list of preservatives, sugar, and questionable chemicals.

The same applies to your fancy latte that takes a minute or two to order at the coffee shop.

So, how can you enjoy the creaminess of a fancy latte without worrying about any questionable ingredients? The answer is COCONUT OIL.

Coconut oil is already well-known for its health benefits, such as improving digestion, supporting weight loss, boosting immunity, treating yeast infections, and more.  This is not surprising at all, given that it is packed with saturated fats, medium-chain triglycerides (help your body produce energy), and lauric acid ( helps reduce inflammation in your body and can help fight colds).

Boosts Digestion

Coconut oil prevents various digestion-related problems, from stomach ailments to irritable bowel syndrome.  The saturated fats have antimicrobial properties that help in dealing with fungi, parasites, and bacteria responsible for indigestion.

Boosts Immunity

Coconut oil strengthens the immune system as it contains antimicrobial lipids, capric acid, lauric acid, and caprylic acid, which possess antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal properties.   The human body turns lauric acid into monolaurin, which has been shown to deal with bacteria and viruses that cause diseases like influenza, cytomegalovirus, and herpes.

Weight Loss

As already mentioned, coconut oil contains short and medium-chain fatty acids that help lose weight in an all-natural way.  It has been scientifically shown that it helps reduce abdominal obesity in women.  It is quite easy to digest and aids in healthy functioning of the endocrine system and the thyroid. It also removes stress on the pancreas, which helps burn more energy and help overweight people lose weight.

Delicious Latte With Coconut Oil

  • Pour a cup of brewed coffee into a blender.
  • Add 1-2 tablespoons of coconut oil to the blender.
  • Opt for organic, unrefined, virgin coconut oil for optimal results.
  • Blend until foamy.
  • Pour into a mug and enjoy!

NOTE: Using a blender is a must! Stirring in coconut oil will only make your coffee oily, not foamy.
