Coconut Oil Benefits
It’s all over the Internet, the coconut oil admiration.
A cure for many health issues, a skin-teeth-hair problem solver, inevitable help in the kitchen, can you believe it!
I was impressed, to say the least as I must admit I love all-in-one solutions. Coconut oil is definitely one of those miraculous ones. A 500 ml raw, virgin, unrefined, cold-pressed, and whatever else benefits you can find written on the jar serve my family for about 2 months. That’s including everyday skin applying, cooking, and using it instead of butter. I also brush my teeth with the oil and my kids take it with some honey and turmeric when they are not well. Here are the results I can share with you: skin is visibly smoother and cleaner. Kids are recovering quite fast. My gums are not bleeding anymore and my teeth look brighter. Maybe one day I will discover a Hollywood smile on my face!
It is important to buy only the finest organic, raw, extra virgin coconut oil from trusted places.
A few main wonderful facts:
~antibacterial and antiviral effect, as it is rich in lauric and capric acid; those are helping to protect our body from infections;
~stimulates metabolism, helps to burn fat and lose weight, thanks to MCFAs aka medium-chain fatty acids;
~boosts us with energy and raises good blood cholesterol because of the high content of natural saturated fats in it ( the keyword is “natural”, don’t be afraid of the word “saturated” in this case).
How, Where, Why. Apparently as inside as outside.
In kitchen. Healthy option for frying on it ( although it has a specific but nice coconut odor), using for sandwiches, smoothies, and sauces. And, of course, baking!
Beauty purpose. Amazing for skincare, hair growth, massaging, sun cream, toothpaste.
