We’ve all heard that coconuts and coconut oil are healthy for you. But do you realize just how beneficial they really are?
Coconuts and their oil:
- contain healthy fatty acids, and are high in MCTs and saturated fats;
- boost heart health;
- burn fat, but monitor how much you use because they are high in calories;
- increase good HDL cholesterol due to high levels of saturated fats;
- moisturize skin and hair;
- whiten teeth and sooth your gums;
- have antimicrobial effects because they contain lauric acid and monolaurin that can kill bacteria, viruses, and fungi;
- reduce hunger due to high MCTs;
- reduce seizures by increasing blood concentration of ketones.
To get the most benefit from coconuts and coconut oil, make sure to choose organic, virgin coconut oil rather than refined versions.
