Coconut Oil--Nature's Power Boost

Coconut Oil is a key ingredient in Action Wipes and Enduro Bites (an amazing food for endurance athletes!)

Coconut oil is an amazing natural ingredient. In one form, it serves as a key component for Action Wipes because of its cleansing, conditioning and foam enhancement properties which support the breakdown of oils on skin. i.e. it helps lift and remove the bacteria, dirt and urishiol oils of poison oak and ivy.

But our friends at Enduro Bites use it as a very important ingredient because virgin coconut oil also provides a slew of benefits for athletes. Here's why:

  1. Virgin coconut oil provides steady energy because because it's unique fatty acids are more quickly digested and more readily burned for energy than those found in vegetable and seed oils. 
  2. These ingredients move into the liver and are immediately converted for fuel, where they are less likely to be stored as body fat compared to other dietary fats.
  3. The Lauric acid contained in coconut oil has been linked to antiviral, antimicrobial, antiprotozoal and antifungal properties...which means it can clean your teeth. Really!
