Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil: Live Healthier and Happier!

Now, I'm no "health nut", far from it I suppose, but I do spend time looking for products that can make my and my children's lives healthier without having to eat sawdust inspired foods or tree roots. One product that I have discovered is Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil! This stuff is amazing! I only wish I'd found it sooner! Not only does it smell and taste great, but it can add amazing health benefits to your life that you never thought possible! What IS Virgin Coconut Oil?
Most coconut oils that you'll find are made by drying the dried kernel, the meat of the coconut, known as Copra. But Virgin Coconut Oil is made using fresh coconut meat, known as Non-Copra. And we all know how much difference fresh versus dried can be. The production of Virgin Coconut Oil, like Tropical Traditions includes NO chemicals, heating or refining. It's 100% pure and natural, and all of the natural resources of the coconut are preserved, instead of being compromised by chemicals or heat.
What are the benefits of including Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil in your diet? Many experts agree that the health benefits of taking just 2-4 tablespoons each day are amazing:
  • Helps you to lose weight or maintain your healthy weight by making you feel full and satisfied after meals with less cravings, AND by increasing your daily energy!
  • Further helps you to lose weight by increasing your metabolism (Mama's Dream Come True In A Bottle) and promoting healthy thyroid function.
  • Reduces your risk of heart disease. (As my regular readers know, I've lost 2 family members in the last several months due to heart disease...I feel like now I have a product that can help me combat this life ending disease!)
  • Lowers your cholesterol
  • Improves conditions of diabetics and those suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
  • Improves the lives of those suffering from Chron's, IBS, colitis and other bowel disorders. ( I might as well tell ya....I was diagnosed with chronic ulcerative colitis at the age of 17, and have had lots of problems in that I can give you a true review of this product in this area!)
  • Boosts your immunity and helps your prevent illness and disease with powerful antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal agents
  • Rejuvenates your skin and prevents wrinkles.
  • Helps eliminate or lessen chronic yeast infections
  • It can even be given to your pets (horses, cats, dogs and birds) to make them healthier and their coat shiny and new!

So how do you add Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil into your diet? Some people simply eat a few tablespoons right from the jar, or they spread it on their morning toast..I tried that and it was delicious, but I think it would get too boring to eat it that way, plus...I usually don't eat toast:) But you can also incorporate your Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil into recipes and use it as a healthy oil in your cooking! It goes great into sauces, spreads and dressings. Tropical Traditions even has their own Recipe Blog with awesome recipes to help you get the most out of your Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil They also sell a book, Virgin Coconut Oil, How it has changed people's lives, and how it can change yours! complete with all of the facts and information you could ever need plus more amazing recipes!

So..What Did Mama Think About It?

For the first few days, I spread 2 tablespoons of the oil onto my toast or bagel. It was great tasting and had a pure, smooth flavor. After about 3 days of that, I decided to try one of the amazing recipes. I made Beef Stroganoff, one of my family's favorite dishes, using the 2 tablespoons of the Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil that the recipe calls for. I didn't notice the taste of the oil in the Stroganoff, but it did seem to taste a bit better than usual! My kids even noticed that it tasted better! Little did they know, what they were eating contained so much goodness for them!
The next day, I tried out the
Coconut Latte from the recipe blog! I did not use the optional coconut creme, just the oil. All I can say is...Yum! I'm a true coffee fanatic and this was a nice change to the basic flavors I'm used to...even my 13 year old took a sip and said.."Whoa...are you sure that's coffee Mom??"

With so many recipes that easily include the coconut oil rather than other types of oils, it's so easy to get your daily intake of Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil! And since Mamas like me don't cook daily, it's simple to get your 2-4 tablespoons of oil by spreading it on toast or mixing it in a drink!

What positive effects did I notice?

I did notice that I seemed to feel much fuller all day at work. Usually about 10am I start to get that snacky "GIMME ME SOMETHING CRUNCHY AND FATTY" feeling, but when I was eating the Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil I didn't feel hungry all day! At lunchtime, I still wasn't all that hungry, which was a nice change! I also did notice an increase in my energy levels. I didn't get that "3pm lull" where all I want to do is nap! I felt energetic and ready to take on the day...ALL DAY! This is the perfect product to help me to lose those extra pounds without feeling hungry all day AND that helps my body in so many other ways!

The other positive effect that I noticed right away was with my digestion. I do have a bit of a sensitive stomach, due to having Chronic ulcerative Colitis. I noticed that my stomach didn't seem to touchy, and I also noticed a much more "regular" intestinal tract if you know what I mean:) As I continue to eat my Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil I'm looking forward to noticing so many more of the amazing health benefits..I already got 2 of my coworkers into it and they can't wait to get their jar and start adding it to their diets!
