One jar of Coconut Oil has an abundance of health and beauty benefits, and as of lately, I have been loving adding 1 tsp into my coffee for a quick and delicious boost of energy.
Unlike other fatty acids that get stored in your body’s cells, Coconut oil or MCFA (medium-chain saturated fatty acids) is absorbed into the portal vein, transported directly to the liver, and used as fuel to produce a quick release of energy.
“In layman’s terms, that bacon and cheese omelet you ate most likely sits around in your cells waiting to be burned up or stored as fat for later. However, coconut oil gets shipped directly to your liver, where it is put to work to help you get up and get going”
I can definitely feel the difference during my workouts in both energy and intensity; something that plain black coffee does not do on it’s own.
So if you are like me, and do not take workout supplements, try adding some coconut oil to your morning coffee, and start your day with a healthy dose of energy!
