COCONUT OIL HEALTH BENEFITS:
The majority of Coconut oil is composed of MCT or medium chain triglycerides- fatty acids and also contains Omega 3. We do not have enough of these wonderful fats in our otherwise omega 6 dominated diets.
This overloading of omega 6 (replacing what was once a ratio between 3 and 6 omega, has been partly blamed for our poor health and obesity epidemic)
World studies of populations with the lowest rates of heart disease, longevity and lowest body fat and obesity have diets dominated by MCTs like coconut products. Buy a fresh coconut, drink the juice, which is an amazing electrolyte solution (re- hydrates you really quickly full of minerals), eat the flesh and enjoy the ensuing energy surge!
GRASS FED BUTTER HEALTH BENEFITS
Grass fed cows are consuming omega 3's from the green grass, these omega 3's are then passed directly onto you through its wonderful butter product. Kerigold is a great brand to buy since our Irish neighbors are world renowned for raising their cows on pasture (instead of the inferior grain given to cows which has bad effects on health- passing this onto the otherwise ignorant consumer)
EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL HEALTH BENEFITS
Also contains Omega 3 and renowned reputation for the reason the Mediterranean cuisine is considered healthy, traditional Mediterranean populations sporting low heart disease and longevity. Extra virgin olive oil is a winner served cold. The organic olive oil from Alcudia, here in Mallorca, is delicious. (Sold among other places in El Corte Ingles)
