MFO Gift Guide: Use Your Coconut, Part 3

Ok, so we've tackled the uses of CocoMCT® for moms, oilbularyos, bakers and naturalists. I actually shared that post on my Facebook wall and a lot of my friends were all raves about Laurin. It's a popular product na talaga with "those in the know", naks. Sharing with you here!

I love this brand of coconut oil *heart emoji* - Jinky C.

I love Laurin because it doesn’t leave your skin oily when used for a massage! - Jen T.

We use this heavily coz TJ ofcourse said it’s good! But someone asked me how is it extracted and launched on chemical extraction etc. I was stumped and bummed that I couldn’t explain! Coz we use Laurin a lot! - Em S.

We take Laurin daily, hubby and I. It's also one of the carrier oils for my essential oils. - Jane U.

Of course, they asked me about the extraction process, so that's something I will be explaining in another post, promise.

In the meantime, here are more profiles of family/friends you can give CocoMCT® to!

5. The Friend Doing Intermittent Fasting and/or the Ketogenic Diet 
The Keto Diet and Intermittent Fasting is something that I'm hearing a lot, especially among people in my age group. So it's a perfect gift for friends who are doing this.

Laurin can definitely help with weight loss because it has a satiating effect, raises metabolism and burns body fat. Especially useful with all the holiday feasting we are doing. 

Holiday or not, Laurin CocoMCT® is especially ideal for bulletproof coffee and for adding to shakes.

I was told that if you add Laurin to your coffee in the morning, it can get you through lunch time without feeling any hunger pangs. If you plan to do intermittent fasting but can't just take water in the morning, then  having coffee with Laurin seems like a doable alternative.

6. The Athlete 

When taken as a supplement, Laurin will give extra stamina and sustained energy, perfect when they are doing HIIT. It also keeps them immune from illnesses as well as helping them stay alert. In fact, according to, MCT in raw coconut oil boosts endurance and also reduces fat levels. Now imagine taking pure MCT like Laurin at that!

If you think I'm click baiting you, the Livestrong article mentions an NYU Langone Medical Center report that says MCTs may help enhance exercise ability. 

"A study published in April 2009 in the 'Journal of Nutritional Science and Vitaminology' found that the easy digestibility of MCTs may increase energy metabolism during both high- and medium-intensity exercise. The two-week human study found that MCTs reduced the body’s reliance on carbohydrates as a source of energy and cut the amount of lactate produced during exercise, leading to greater exercise endurance."

On a side note, because of the Lauric Acid in CocoMCT®, it can also treat athlete's foot! Heehee.

7. Soap-making Sister

Coconut oil is known to make bar soaps lather beautifully as well as help it harden nicely. Admittedly, Laurin is quite pricey to be used in soap making, but it is the kind of ingredient that produces quality soap bars any soap maker would be proud of!

8. The Vegetarian Friend

What do you give someone who is into plant based nutrition, but is also careful about where her produce comes from? The safer gift is to give CocoMCT® !

By adding coconut oil to their diet, they boost brain health and energy to help compensate for the deficiency in EPA in a vegetarian and vegan diet.
