I've mentioned several times throughout this site that the main reason I started using coconut oil as a daily supplement was to see if it would boost my energy level.
The answer is YES! Coconut oil absolutely boosted my energy!

Did you know that the secret of how to boost your energy naturally can be as simple as eating the right kind of fat?
Here are several reasons why eating coconut oil on a regular basis will help speed up your metabolism and boost your energy!
Coconut oil is mainly made up of medium chain fatty acids (MCFA’s). You may have heard of them referred to as medium chain triglycerides (MCT’s).
Apart from a new mother’s breast milk . . . coconut oil is the best natural source available for obtaining these health promoting MCFA’s.
What makes MCFA’s so beneficial for our health and for energy production is the way they are digested, metabolized, and utilized by our bodies.
Our bodies use MCFA’s as fuel to produce energy!
In fact, the metabolism boosting effects of MCFA's have been known for decades.
Manufacturers have added them to powdered sports drinks and energy bars. (many times listed as MCT, capric, caprylic, or lauric acid on the ingredient label).
Even body builders and athletes have used MCT oil (fractionated coconut oil) for energy and fat burning.
Other fats and oils need digestive enzymes from our pancreas and bile from our gallbladder in order to be digested.
Coconut oil doesn’t put that kind of stress on our digestive system. The MCFA’s in coconut oil are basically sent right to the liver and turned into energy!
So, when you eat coconut oil . . . it is not only used to produce energy but, because it is so easy to digest, it actually helps your body conserve energy that would normally be used to digest other kinds of fats!
Fat is fuel for our bodies. It is one out of three nutrients (fats, carbohydrates, and protein) that our body uses to produce energy.
But, all fats are not the same. And, the kind of fat you eat is the secret to knowing how to boost your energy!
Most fats and oils are made up of long chain fatty acids (LCFA’s). That’s important to know if you want to increase your energy because our body processes LCFA’s completely different than it processes MCFA’s.
Researchers have known that for years!
In Short . . . LCFA’s in the dietary fats and oils you're most likely eating every day are harder for your body to digest. They're combined with cholesterol and protein and circulate throughout your entire body while small particles of fat are released along the way and stored as body fat!
The MCFA’s in coconut oil are sent directly to our liver and quickly converted into energy (not body fat). . . speeding up our metabolism.
Coconut oil is a food that feeds our cells (mitochondria - the energy producing organs of our cells).
Our cells convert the MCFA’s in coconut oil into energy . . . increasing our metabolism!
In fact, did you know that when you eat coconut oil with your meals it raises your metabolism and keeps it elevated for as long as 24 hours?
When our metabolism speeds up . . . our bodies burn calories faster increasing our energy level and energizing our entire body!
Including our immune system and our thyroid . . . the gland that regulates our metabolism!
Using coconut oil with your meals will help your body absorb vital nutrients from your food. Including these two nutrients that are specifically helpful for energy production.
Plus, many other beneficial nutrients from the food you eat.

I was already cooking with coconut oil and using it as a natural remedy for eczema on my itchy skin . . . but once I started using it as a daily coconut oil supplement I noticed a major difference in my energy level!
It wasn’t a quick burst of energy, though, like when you drink a cup of coffee. It was a subtle, long lasting energy. The same type of energy my mitochondria pills gave me.
That long lasting energy gave me the endurance to get through the day without becoming physically exhausted after doing one normal every day task that most people take for granted. (I had adrenal fatigue…click here to see how coconut oil benefits adrenal fatigue).
Just adding organic extra virgin coconut oil as a daily supplement gave me the long lasting energy I needed.
