Coconut oil has many health benefits. Some people tend to shy away from butter and fats, but coconut oil is very good for you!

Here are some of the benefits:

  •  ENERGY, Weight-loss and Lower Cholesterol = “Coconut Oil is a saturated fat made up primarily of medium-chain fatty acids. Also known as medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), medium-chain fatty acids are known to increase metabolism and promote weight loss. Coconut oil can also raise basal body temperatures while increasing metabolism. This is good news for people who suffer with low thyroid function”
  • Helps Body Fight Diseases = coconut oil is made up of 40% lauric acid which helps your body fight diseases and also helps to prevent heart disease. Lauric acid is known by doctors to be able to kill harmful pathogens, bacteria, and viruses in your body.
  • Easier to Digest = coconut oil is comprised of saturated fats which are much easier for your body to digest than unsaturated fats such as soybean, canola, or corn oil.
  • Healthy for Hair & Skin = coconut oil is a wonderful nutrient for your hair and skin! It helps prevent dry skin, dandruff, lice, and hair damage. To use, just massage it in your scalp or even take in the shower with you. As a result, your hair will be super silky, smooth, and healthy!
