{Amazing Benefits of Coconut Oil}

The question is - what can't coconut oil do? Just recently while having a conversation with my sister I learned all of the benefits that coconut oil has. I mean - how didn't I know this? Why am I late to the game on this one? Coconut oil is unique for its medium-chain fatty acids. They’re easy to digest and funneled straight to the liver, where they produce energy instead of body fat, stimulating your metabolism. Studies have shown that women who consumed about two tablespoons of coconut oil daily for 12 weeks lowered their abdominal fat, which we all know isn’t easy! Did you know that olive oil, due to its chemical structure, breaks down when it hits heat and actually becomes toxic? Neither did I!! So that's when I did a little research and have come to the conclusion that as a general rule of thumb: cook with coconut oil (I hear that it even makes your food taste better), and use olive oil at room temperature (think dressings...hummus, etc). So without further ado, check out some of the amazing benefits you can gain by using coconut oil:

  1. I needed that bloody nose tip. This winter has been super dry. Thanks for posting.

  2. i just jumped on this wagon recently and started oil pulling last friday. i have noticed that my mouth feels cleaner but still waiting for whiter teeth :) i also started using it nightly on my face as moisturizer and my growing belly to prevent stretch marks.

  3. I use it for popping popcorn on the stove!
