5 Ways To Use And Benefit From Coconut Oil
Personally, prior to my deeper interest in a holistic lifestyle and taking a deeper interest in nutrition, I had NO IDEA what the benefits of this incredible oil were OR what endless possibilities for its uses.
Coconut oil is comprised of approximately 2/3 medium-chain fatty acids and include caprylic acid, lauric acid and capric acid. In addition to the majority of this oil being saturated fat, it’s stated that the fat composition is one of the most beneficial on the planet with a diversity of uses. The chemical properties of MCFA’s allow for easy digestion with easier cell permeability for immediate energy, antimicrobial, anti-fungal and is not readily stored as fat. Listed below are 5 ways to use or benefit from coconut oil:

Used as a mouthwash in which can kill some bacteria and reduce bad breath.
MCFA’s are sent directly to the liver for use as energy but also DOES NOT produce an increase insulin to the bloodstream (SO, you have the benefits of a carbohydrate for energy but do not need to worry about diabetic related issues).
High in natural saturated fats, this increases healthy cholesterol in your body. Also known to lower high triglycerides and promote normal platelet function.
Metabolically can increase the activity of the thyroid, giving you more energy. MCFA’s easy digestibility also produces longer sustainability of energy as they are sent directly to the liver and used as a quick source of energy.
