TROPICAL TRADITIONS Virgin Coconut Oil Review & Giveaway

CONTEST CLOSED - Winner is Michele - Congrats to you!!

One word - HEALTHY. I have used VCO as a health food before. When I got the opportunity to work with Tropical Traditions, my Mom told me to jump on it - that this brand is known as the best.

Let me tell you how I use it -

* I eat it by the spoonful. I leave it out and several times throughout the day, I pop a spoonful in my mouth and let it melt. The flavor of Tropical Traditions is the best of any brand of VCO I've tried.

*Facial moisturizer-After my shower I slather it over my face for soft supple skin. No toxic chemicals, food grade - no worries. Great skin.

* Hair/scalp treatment- About once a month I comb it in roots to ends wrap my head in a hot towel and leave it on for a half hour or so. I love it for winter time dry scalp.

* Add it to smoothies & hot tea-Those are great ways to get Ju to ingest it. He won't do a spoonful.

* Pets - I give a dollop to my dog & cat. They both love it .

I use it as an overall heath tonic.

In addition to tasting & smelling great, Virgin Coconut Oil can :

*Help you loose weight

*Reduce risk of heart disease

*Lower cholesterol

*Improve conditions in those with diabetes and chronic fatigue

*Improve Crohn's,IBS, and other digestive disorders

*Prevent other disease and routine illness with its powerful antibacterial, antiviral, and anti fungal agents

*Increase metabolism and promote healthy thyroid function

*Rejuvenate your skin and prevent wrinkles

With my sample of VCO, I received a book that is a wonderful resource for all things Virgin Coconut Oil. Filled with uses,testimonials & recipes it will start you off right in your introduction to VCO. If you've already used it, it will further educate you.

I highly recommend this product. I am a firm believer in replacing not so healthy with healthy - building. Even if not for a specific reason. Adding healthful things to your life helps your body become a strong foundation. A strong foundation can weather illness & age, much better than a weak one.

CONTEST CLOSED
WIN IT!!

One lucky reader will receive a 32 oz jar of Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil & a copy of the helpful book "Virgin Coconut Oil - How It Has Changed People's Lives and How It Can Change Yours".

Will cooking with Coconut Oil cause it to become hydrogenated and toxic like hydrogenated oils?
No. Hydrogenation is an industrial process where hydrogen molecules are introduced to the oil to make it solid at room temperatures. It chemically alters the oil and creates harmful trans fatty acids. Cooking with coconut oil does NOT introduce hydrogen into the oil or hydrogenate it.

Very interesting website. I learned that you can take the VCO and use it in place of butter in your recipes!

I love using coconut oil! I thought it was interesting that they recommended combining it with palm oil for increasing the smoke point. But what is the smoke point? And should I be combining it with some other oil when baking (at say 400F)?

PS said...

Their oil is Organic! Yay. I can only imagine how yummy some foods would taste when cooked with this!

I learned that Coconut oil is liquid above 75 degrees F. (25 C.), and below that it will be a solid fat. It can be stored in either form, and it can be liquefied easily by applying low level heat.

May Canadians enter? I found it interesting that refrigerating or freezing coconut oil changes its flavour.

I learned that you do not need to refridgerate the oil but it should be stored away from direct light. It also has a shelf life of 18 months but usually will last longer.

I learned that it is still produced by hand in small batches by family micro enterprises in the Philippines. asthenight at gmail dot com

Brooke said...

Wow I didn't know there was a huge difference in coconut oil BUT... When purchasing coconut oil, one must determine between “virgin” and “refined.” The determining characteristic of virgin coconut oils is that they are made from fresh coconuts, and they have the distinct aroma and taste of coconuts present. This is very helpful information atleast I think so

CanCan (Mom Most Traveled) said...

Wow, I am so interested to try this. We have been considering going raw and I have read that it is important for raw kids to eat Coconut Oil.
I learned that "Some people buy natural peanut butter, pour off the excess oil at the top, and mix in coconut oil in its place"

But I was unaware that it is a better for you item than butter in recipes.

A recipe calling for butter, margarine, or any other oil can be substituted for coconut oil, and it can be used as a spread on bread or biscuits and used in coffee and tea.

And I would love to try this.

I have just started making green smoothies and have been looking for a high quality coconut milk. I love that tropical traditions has preserved their culture by staying organic utilizing small family farms, staying away from all of the pollution and keeping coconuts at controlled temps during shipping. What is there not to get excited about. I would love to try some thanks

Once a person is used to taking coconut oil, the amount recommended per day is 3.5tbsp along with food high in fiber and protein since the VOC is usually found in the coconut meat. Thanks!

I would love to try this product. It sounds great, I had never heard of it before Virgin Coconut Oil. I learned that an adult should have 3.5 teaspoons of VCO per day, but that someone who is just starting to use the Coconut Oil should not start out with that much per day but build up to it. Thanks for the giveaway, and for the wonderful information about this product.
