COCONUT OIL—AN ATHLETE'S BEST FRIEND

Though "tropical oils" such as coconut oil have gotten a bad rap in the past, in reality, the health benefits of coconut oil in sports nutrition make it one of the best oils that we can consume, especially for those who exercise or need relatively quick energy.

Coconut oil is predominantly made up of medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs)—though saturated, MCFAs do not require the liver to digest them. This means instant energy and increased thermogenesis (increased metabolic rate in the body), which helps provide fuel during exercise and regulate weight day to day.

MCFAs have high quantities of Lauric and Capric acid which are known for having antimicrobial and anti-fungal properties, so they are beneficial to our immune system.

An added benefit of coconut oil is that MCFAs can improve endurance exercise performance (great news, huh?)—increasing consumption of MCFAs lowers the amount of carbohydrates that are burned during exercise, which has two important advantages:

  1. First, glycogen stored in the muscles and liver is spared, which allows the athlete to perform longer before fatigue sets in.
  2. Second, because carbohydrates are spared, fat becomes a primary source of fuel, which helps athletes to maintain a lean, healthy body weight.

In addition to the benefits listed for athletes, coconut oil is a great way to lose a few of those pesky pounds that you're trying to get rid of. Eating a few CocoNutz Fuel balls with a couple cups of water thrown in for good measure will help keep you satisfied for hours, helping you lose that weight that you just want gone.

None of these statements have been evaluated by the FDA—please don't assume these statements will take the place of advice from a well trained physician or local witch doctor. We're not claiming coconut oil will make you better looking or help you win the lottery—we're just saying it's a great product to aid in athlete nutrition.

Coconutz Fuel is patent pending in the United States.
