Amazing Benefits of Coconut Oil

Amazing Benefits of Coconut Oil

Coconut Oil has been used for centuries as a vital source of food for health and general well-being in traditional communities of tropical regions.

Recent research verifies traditional beliefs that the coconut palm is “The Tree of Life” and that, just like any other pure, whole food, coconuts and virgin coconut oil have a significant role to play in a well balanced, nutritious diet.

It's very versatile and one of the healthiest oils in the world and can be used in cooking and topically for your face, body and hair. These benefits of coconut oil can be attributed to the presence of lauric acid, capric acid and caprylic acid, and its properties which are antimicrobial, antioxidant, anti-fungal, antibacterial, and soothing.

Facial and Body Moisturizer

Coconut Oil is one of the best natural substances you can apply to your face and body. It also delays wrinkles, and sagging of skin which normally become prominent with age. Coconut oil also helps in treating various skin problems including psoriasis, dermatitis, eczema and other skin infections. Just apply as you would a body lotion until absorbed.

Hair and Scalp

Coconut oil is amazing for both your hair and scalp. It also provides the essential proteins required for nourishing damaged hair. It is therefore used as hair care oil and used in manufacturing various conditioners, and dandruff relief creams. All you need is to add one teaspoon of Organic Virgin Coconut Oil in your hair to improve elasticity and condition while adding gloss and shine. You can also add more and leave in for an hour or overnight as a leave in treatment and shampoo out and rinse as usual.

 Weight loss

Coconut Oil is very effective in reducing and maintaining weight. It contains short and medium-chain fatty acids that help in taking off excessive weight. It is also easy to digest and it helps in healthy functioning of the thyroid and enzymes systems. It increases the body metabolism by removing stress on pancreases, thus burning out more energy and helping overweight people reduce their weight. This is why people living in tropical coastal areas who eat coconut oil daily as their primary cooking oil, are so slim and healthy.
