What's So Special About Coconut Oil?!

'What's so special about coconut oil?' is a question that I often hear every time I mention to someone that they should incorporate it into their daily routine. So today I am here to answer that question for you and give you a few tips on how to use this wonderful oil and explain why it is so wonderful!

A Healthy Heart
The fat in coconut oil actually helps improve your cholesterol. It helps prevent heart attack and stroke and even heart disease. This oil is 92% saturated fat! That's the good fat. It’s the type of fat that holds strong bonds that are resistant to higher temperatures. This makes them safer to cook with and bake with and also makes it less likely to attract free radicals.

It's the lauric acid that is found in this oil that may destroy viral and bacterial infections.

Kiss That Stress Goodbye!
This oil is exceptionally soothing. Try massaging your temples with a bit of the oil to help remove mental fatigue.

Beautiful Hair
This oil is one of the top ways to provide great health for your hair. the fatty acids condition deeply from the insides of your strands out. You can use it as a conditioner and it also helps eliminate dandruff while aiding in the re growth of your hair.

Coconut oil contains antibacterial, anti viral, anti fungal, and anti parasitic properties that build up and strengthen your immune system. Coconut oil consumed regularly will reduce sickness.

Coconut oil may improve insulin and glucose tolerance over a period of time. It helps to regulate blood sugar levels and can even help prevent against type II diabetes.

Silky Skin
Coconut oil as mentioned earlier acts as a wonderful conditioner, not only for your hair, but your skin as well! It not only moisturizes your skin when applied but it can help protect against free radical damage.

Buh Bye Belly Fat
the fatty acids in coconut oil destroy yeast overgrowth which can trigger weight gain, carbohydrates, and fatigue. This oil is easily digested and converted into energy which helps speed up metabolism and burn that extra stored fat.
