The beneficial effects of coconut oil are due to the medium-chain fatty acids it contains, instead of long-chain fatty acids. A study found that eating 1 to 2 tablespoons of medium chain fats, such as coconut oil, per day increased energy expenditure by 5%, which totals to 120 calories daily for an average person.
Namely, medium chain fatty acids are quickly used for energy a soon they enter the body, which significantly boosts the metabolism.
Why I Use Coconut Creamer
- Unlike adding cold milk or cream, coconut oil creamer doesn’t cool down my hot cup of coffee.
- It doesn’t dilute the flavor. I like my coffee strong, and milk and cream, especially non-dairy milk, can water it down.
- Coconut oil is always on-hand, whereas dairy creamers expire and you’re sometimes stuck drinking black coffee, which just isn’t my thing.
- I feel alert and energized for longer than I would with just coffee alone.
- It is not “greasy” and doesn’t leave my coffee oily
