Coconut Oil comes from the white fleshy stuff found in mature coconuts. It is a “healthy” form of saturated fat with a whole range of health benefits. In fact the fat found in coconut oil is nearly 50% auric acid. The body converts this acid into monolaurin which can be used to treat a wide range of infections and conditions like chronic fatigue.
Coconut Oil has been used to assist in weight loss, improve our energy levels as well as helping rev up our metabolism. It has also been used as a natural appetite supressant. Coconut oil can also help improve digestion thanks to its anti-microbial properties, which have a soothing effect on bacteria, candida, and parasites that cause poor digestion. These properties also help improve our immunity and work as a natural healing agent.
As if all these benefits weren't enough, coconut oil can also replace a whole range of everyday products that we keep in our kitchen cupboards or on the bathroom sink – get rid of those nasty chemical laden products and opt for something natural and homemade … not to mention inexpensive. Bonus!
