The many health benefits of Minola Coconut Oil

As a kid, going grocery shopping with my mom was such an adventure. I loved being in charge of the list and checking things off once they were in the cart. So when I finally had my own family and started going to the grocery myself, I remembered the brands my mom would buy and also get the same.

One of the items that’s been a household staple is Minola Cooking Oil, which is one of the leading brands of coconut oil in the Philippines for the past 50 years.

Hubby and I try to eat healthy as much as possible and making sure our cooking oil is good for us is a must since we use it in every meal. We’ve always been partial to coconut oil compared to other alternatives. But do you know exactly what are the advantages of using coconut oil?


Coconut Tree is considered the TREE of LIFE because of its countless benefits. Each part of the coconut tree has a use ( If you’re from my generation, do you remember “Da Coconut Nut” song by Smokey Mountain haha? Like they said:

There are so many uses of the coconut tree
You can build a big house for the family
All you need is to find a coconut man
If he catch the tree, he gets the fruit free

Anyway, coconut oil is one of the “coco wonders” that most people are unaware of. Many people still regard coconut oil as unhealthy. This started during a black propaganda spread by the corn and soy oil industry in the 1970s. Since they said coconut oil was rich in saturated fat, many people veered away from it, thus the decline of the market share of coconut oil.

But in the early 2000s, people began to question the claims of the propaganda and re-investigated the benefits of coconut oil. Many benefits were discovered. Some of these benefits are hair care, skin care, cholesterol level maintenance, relief from kidney problems, heart diseases, kidney failure, high blood pressure and diabetes among others.

One of the most notable advantages of coconut oil is its ability to fight viruses and bacteria. This immunity-boosting benefit and the other benefits mentioned earlier can be attributed to the presence of LAURIC in coconut oil.

Lauric oil is the same substance found in mother’s milk. It is a medium-chain fatty acid. Pure coconut oil contains about 50% lauric acid. When lauric acid is present in the body, it is converted into monolaurin, a monoglyceride compound which exhibits antiviral, antimicrobial, antiprotozoal and antifungal properties. It acts by disrupting the lipid membranes in organisms like fungus, bacteria and viruses, thus destroying them.

What’s great about Minola Coconut Oil is that it is rich in LAURIC OIL that helps fight viruses and bacteria. Cooking with Minola Cooking Oil will also help boost your family’s immunity because it is “MINOLAURIC” or full of lauric oil.

As a mom running a household, I really want the best for my family. I want them to eat healthy and delicious dishes, all while staying within our budget. So I really love that with Minola, you can enjoy the benefits of coconut oil without spending a lot.
