Coconut Oil Uses: 5 Surprising Benefits Of Coconut Oil For Your Health

The most recent craze surrounding coconut oil has been the traditional Ayurvedic practice,  oil pulling. Coconut oil is the latest food cure – all that can have profound positive effects on your overall health.

 

  • Lowers Cholesterol

This superfood is loaded with saturated fats that actually raise HDL (good) cholesterol and lower your risk of heart disease. Coconut oil contains an unusual blend of short and MCFAs, specifically lauric, capric, and myristic acids that are linked to special health benefits, such as reducing cholesterol.

 

  • Weight Loss Aid

The medium-chain triglycerides in coconut oil can speed up energy usage compared to other fats. The MCTs in coconut oil, according to Rinehart, digest as fast as sugar in the body.

 

  • Moisturizes Skin

Coconut oil can be used as a skin moisturizer because of its vitamin E content and its positive antioxidant action in the body. This helps stop the damage to the tissues in the body since oxidation is a major source of skin aging.

 

  • Better Brain Function

The MCTs in coconut oil provides a “secondary fuel source” aside from glucose that the brain and nervous system can function on.

 

  • Kills Bacteria, Viruses, And Fungi

Coconut oil has lauric acid, which is believed to have antifungal, anti-viral, and antibacterial properties. This makes it helpful with various types of infections.

 

Add coconut oil to your daily diet for better health!
