Following The Herd

Did you know that U.S. cattle farmers used to feed cows coconut oil to get them fat quickly, but it had the direct opposite effect? The cows became extremely lean, toned, and healthy. This is because coconut oil actually burns fat as fuel, instead of storing it for later.

Coconut oil also helps to regulate blood sugar, improve skin complexion, & boost the immune system, as this oil contains many anti-viral & anti-microbial properties. Who knew that eating fat can get you thin?

(Side Note: Today, cattle are given corn/vegetable oils to get them fat and weak so that their meat is much more tender and palatable for consumers. Yet these are the very oils that we are told are "heart healthy" in America, and we are fatter and weaker than ever....just some food for thought.)

Gelatin is an anti-inflammatory protein that's good for reducing symptoms of fibromyalgia, joint pain, tissue degradation, inflammation, asthma, hives, hyperventilation, the size of cancerous tumors, high blood sugar, insulin resistance, strokes, seizures, insomnia, and more.  It also helps to promote weight loss and the health of hair, skin, nails, tendons, and the gut. 

Add a dash to your food, smoothies, and/or post workout recovery drink, and reap the benefits.

Sun Worshippers...It's Your Lucky Day

All of you sun worshippers out there most likely battle between wanting that sun-kissed glow and risk getting another wrinkle.

Here's a tip: according to Ray Peat, Ph.D., sun exposure and the aging effect are variable and depends on our hormones and diet.

Two groups of shaved rabbits were fed diets containing either corn oil or coconut oil.  After being exposed to direct sunlight, the animals that ate corn oil developed prematurely wrinkled skin, while the animals that ate coconut oil didn't show any harm from the sun exposure.

Now, I wouldn't want to look like a shaved rabbit, but if I did, I'd want to be a wrinkle-free one :)  Eat your coconut oil and go enjoy those rays.
