It’s not easy being a K-Pop superstar. Hard work, practice, constant unending scheduled activities, interviews, concerts, variety appearances, and no end what all a K-Pop idol has to do in just 24 hours. In the midst of it all, getting enough sleep, eating right, and keeping their immunity boosted is one of the most important factors. Overworking with a weak immune system can lead to idols fainting on stage due to fatigue, as we have often seen in really scary incidents. How do these idols maintain their immune system? The secret ingredient is coconut oil.
While one may think that coconut oil is bad for health as it is an oil, after all, it is good for health as it is full of vitamins that are good for you. It strengthens immunity, prevents aging, and increases basic metabolism. It is even referred to as miracle oil overseas. It is composed of medium-chain fatty acids, such as lauric acid, short carbon length. Instead of accumulating as fat, it is broken down faster and used as energy for the body. It helps digestion, regulates blood sugar levels, and boosts immunity, protecting the body from harmful microorganisms.
However, it should be consumed carefully in regulated amounts. According to Professor Lee Seung Min of the Yonsei University Department of Food and Nutrition, it is safe to consume one tablespoon of coconut oil per day for adults, and this amount can even be used in salads or mixed with cooking oil. However, hydrogenated coconut oil should be avoided as it produces transfats that are harmful to the body. Refined coconut oil is usually mixed, so it’s better to avoid it too. Only virgin coconut oil is the healthiest and best choice for you and your body. Several K-Pop stars vouch for virgin coconut oil consumption to maintain their energy throughout the day. It’s time to include it in your diet as well!
