Dadi’s way is the right way: A shift back to cold pressed oils
Updated: Mar 29
If you are following health & wellness trends, you must have heard of the shift to cold pressed oils!! Even if you haven’t heard you would wonder ‘Now what is this?’ So we at COCOरियल have decided to answer this for you.
Cold pressed oils are extracted through moderate pressure which are from seeds, nuts and even vegetables, exactly how our ancestors extracted it 1000 years ago. Some how our ancestors knew better! The cold-pressing method retains the natural healthy antioxidants in the oil, which are otherwise destroyed by heat. Cold-pressed oils are a rich source of oleic acid and lauric acid, which are great immune system boosters. These oils also help in energizing the body. After regular consumption of cold-pressed oils, users have seen an uprise in their overall energy levels.
A discussion about the benefits of cold-pressed oils cannot end without talking about the benefits of cold-pressed virgin coconut oil. The cold pressing process retains the essential antioxidants and vitamins. Cold-pressed virgin coconut oil retains all the essential nutrients and is healthy for the skin, hair, and teeth. Lauric acid present in coconut oil helps to kill harmful pathogens like bacteria and viruses. This essential component is lost in the commercial oil extraction process and retained during cold pressing. Several studies have shown that coconut oil consumption is good for heart health since it helps raise the HDL (good cholesterol) levels in the body which are retained through the process of cold press extraction. It’s time we go back to our Naniji and Dadiji ke Nuske!
