Here’s Why People Are Adding Coconut Oil To Their Coffee

A newly emerging trend for coffee lovers is adding coconut oil in their coffee. We’ve heard of many unusual things used for flavor in coffee but coconut oil seems to take the cake. So what gives? While coconut oil adds a delicious twist to a morning coffee, it’s not the only reason for adding it. There are three great reasons for you to join this trend.

1. Get an Extra Boost of Energy

Coconut oil is made up out of Medium Chain Triglycerides or MCTs for short. MCTs are absorbed and metabolized by the body super quickly giving you an extra boost.

2. Improve Your Metabolism

Instead of being stored as fat, the calories in MCTs are quickly and quite efficiently converted into fuel for your body. In a 2009 study, women between the ages 20 and 40, were given dietary supplements of either 30 ml (about 6 tsp) of soybean or coconut oil. After a 12 week period, the group taking coconut oil had a decrease in BMI, waist circumference, and a boost in “good” HDL cholesterol. The other group did not experience the same benefits.

3. A Kick For Your Immune System

The magic of coconut oil doesn’t stop there. A whopping 50% of coconut oil fatty acids is Lauric Acid. Found in breast milk, this healthy fat has antimicrobial properties. WebMD says that it can be used for treating the flu, common cold, cold sores, and many other diseases.

How To Start

It’s super easy, here’s how:

1. Open your blender and pour your coffee (preferably organic) carefully into the cup.

2. Add one tablespoon of organic coconut oil for starters.

3. Blend and enjoy.

Blending it instead of trying to stir it in will make sure it’s mixed evenly and tastes great. Once you get used to adding one tablespoon, you can move up to two. This is a fantastic way to get the benefits of coconut oil into your morning routine. Share with your fellow coffee drinkers.

I have been doing this for some time now; adding organic coconut oil, on some of my morning cups of coffee. I thought I was the only one. Glad to see there are other people, who thought of the same thing! 🙂

I haven’t try this, and after reading your post I am now curious. I will surely try this when I got home. Any way when is the perfect time to consume this? I drink coffee almost 3 times a day or even more. Can I put coconut oil each time I drink coffee?

Why do I see other articles saying coconut oil is bad for you? Which is right? is it or not?

I tried this and felt horrible after this. I have high cholesterol due to genetics and I could tell within 30 minutes that something was wrong in my body after drinking coffee with coconut oil.
