Coconut oil, when virgin, raw, and never-heated, can increase alkalinity in the body. Raw unheated coconut oil does not convert to acidic end products unlike many vegetable oils. Promoting an alkaline environment in your body is your path to feeling great.
The body is extremely good at managing it's pH, and there is very little we can do to affect it. However, there are a couple things you can do to help promote an alkaline state in your body!
- Get some form of exercise. Do brisk walking. Move your body. Physical exercise moves acidic waste products so your body can eliminate them.
- Drink lots of (alkaline) water. Water is naturally alkaline. It also helps remove acidic waste products easily.
- Minimize "acid-forming" foods and beverages, while you maximize those that promote alkalinity.
Generally, alkaline forming foods include most fruits, green vegetables, peas, beans, lentils, spices, herbs and seasonings, and seeds and nuts; and acid forming foods include: meat, fish, poultry, eggs, grains, and legumes.
You can also counteract the acidic effects of certain foods by combining them properly with other foods. Most people find many benefits in a good alkaline cancer diet that is rich in fruit and other high alkaline foods. Here is a list of acid and alkaline-forming foods.
Does Coconut Oil Increase Alkalinity in the Body?
One way to increase alkalinity in the body is to substitute your refined cooking oil with our coconut oil. Other cooking oils are considered acid-forming. Coconut oil contributes to the body’s energy and without contributing to the body’s acidity. A bonus of using coconut oil is that it helps metabolize other fats (which are acidic) too!
