Superfood Supastars: The Beauty of Coconut Oil

 

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

 

Coconut oil is a superfood and does wonders for your health. But it is also a serious weapon in your beauty department arsenal. The list of benefits is abundant but here are the ways you can use coconut oil to stay looking GOOOOD. Naturally.

 

It increases energy and helps burn fat. The medium chain triglycerides in coconut oil have been shown to increase 24 hour energy expenditure by as much as 5%, potentially leading to significant weight loss over the long term.
Wait, not just any fat but belly fat… A study in 40 women with abdominal obesity, supplementing with 1 ounce of coconut oil per day lead to a significant reduction in both BMI and waist circumference in a period of 12 weeks. No change in diet or exercise: just adding coconut oil.
Reduce cravings. The fatty acids in coconut oil can significantly reduce appetite, which may positively affect body weight over the long term. Feel fuller, faster.
Healthy skin, hair, and pearly whites. Coconut oil can be applied topically as well, studies showing it to be effective as a skin moisturizer and protecting against hair damage. It can also be used as a mild form of sunscreen and as mouthwash.
And, last but not least, it helps reduce scars and stretch marks. The medium chain fatty acids in coconut oil act like a antioxidant- fighting free radicals and reversing damage. Free radicals attack the skin’s connective tissue and reduce their ability to regenerate. Coconut oil combats this while softening the skin.

 

Coconut also does loads more- this is just the beginning. Grab a scoop and see for yourself!

Cold-Pressed: So Hot Right Now.

In the juicing universe cold-pressed is all the rage right now; but some people have been asking us: what does it even mean?

 

Cold-pressed refers to the method of juicing we practice at MJF. The hydraulic juice press minimizes heat production and oxidation by extracting the juice directly from the pulp through an applied force of more than 2000 lbs. There is no heat created so the health properties of the fruits and veggies remain intact. Juice made using the cold-press method typically has 3-5x the amount of nutrients than juice made using a centrifugal juicer so you get all those amazing vitamins, minerals, and enzymes.

 

It’s a little bit more labor intensive and a lot more messy than centrifugal juicing- but we take care of all of that so all you have to do is enjoy the great taste and the even greater benefits.
