Why Naked Coconuts is the Healthiest Alternative…
COCONUT OIL HEALTH FACTS
A tablespoon of coconut oil a day keeps the fat away! Coconut oil has been proven to assist weight loss because it consists primarily of medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs), which are great for you and essential to brain function, muscle function and healing of the body. Coconut oil is immediately processed by the body and turned into energy – it is not stored in the body where it can become fat. Although you shouldn’t go and replace your entire diet with only coconut oil, this versatile product can be used in cooking and even skincare! It is important to consume the best quality coconut oil like ours at Naked Coconuts: raw, cold pressed and extra virgin.
SOY-FREE: THE BENEFITS
Did you know that more than 3.5 million people have a soy sensitivity or allergy in Canada alone? Although a less common allergen, symptoms of soy intolerance may include upset stomach, nausea, eczema, congestion, and headaches. With today’s overprocessing of food, especially with soy, the symptoms are getting worse. Those with soy intolerances will be relieved of these symptoms by consuming less unfermented soy products.
BEAT THE SOY HANGOVER
Do you ever experience low energy or headaches after consuming large amounts of soy? Coined a “soy hangover”, you may not even notice it after dipping your sushi in soy sauce or eating your teriyaki stir-fry. The truth is, soy is found in so many of our daily food items, sometimes hidden in ingredients that contain the words “lecithin”, “natural flavouring”, and “vegetable starch”.
Given all this, Naked Coconuts has the perfect solution for you. Our famous soy-free soy sauce (we call them coconut aminos) are made from fermented coconut sap and mixed with hand-harvested, unrefined, unbleached, naturally-white sea salt. Believe it or not: it doesn’t taste like coconut! Our coconut aminos have the great salty taste of traditional soy sauce, but contains 65% less sodium than its nemesis. Join the #NoSoyHangover revolution!
