I have the habit to stick onto something that has the capability to heal my body and make my soul nourished. And coconut oil is wonderful in healing the body. When I think about it, it really drives me crazy on the fact that I can use it in many ways. Let me walk you through the incredible benefits of coconut oil:
Good source of dietary fat
Too many fats are not good but required amount is needed, of course. Fat is a perfect source to create hormones and cells in the body which are highly significant to absorb fat-soluble nutrients. Coconut oil is a good source of healthy fat as it has low cholesterol levels which are best in promoting overall health.
Protect you from diseases
People consuming coconut oil regularly tend to have lesser diseases than those who don’t. It is a natural medicine which nicely supports the body, take a look how:
- Good for under-eye active thyroid.
- Nice healer of IBS as it has anti-inflammatory properties.
- It has positive effects on insulin so good for diabetic patients.
Beneficial for weight loss
Being rich in saturated fatty acids, it enhances your fullness feeling after the meals. Energy expenditure is boosted thus making you lose weight by eating coconut oil.
Finest Cooking Oil
Oils like safflower, canola and sunflower are not that fine cooking oils due to their low smoking point. They are rancid which are toxic for your body. Coconut oil is the finest cooking oil as it is rich in saturated fats. Plus, it can bear medium heat as well which other oils cannot do.
Make treats seem decadent
Coconut oil has the property to make food creamy. Just add three tsp. of oil to any smoothie and enjoy this luscious treat. You will feel like as if you are having milkshake or ice cream soda. Or you can also add it on a toast to get buttery feeling. It’s a commendable perk for those who avoid eating butter due to fats. So yummy!!
Treats like almonds, dates and shredded coconut can be blended with some coconut oil in a food processor to enjoy creamy textured food. Be creative by putting the mixture into moulds and relish these healthy foods.
Beauty product for skin
As coconut oil is non-toxic, it is great for your skin. You may have observed that body or skin products are packed with chemicals which harm the skin in many ways. Plus, they are expensive as well. So to avoid any harm, use coconut oil on your skin and enhance your beauty.
It is a great moisturizer, makeup remover and teeth can be brushed as well to kill bacteria. Additionally, it works as a great conditioning hair mask.
- Take some coconut oil, not too hot. Apply it on your hair and scalp. Let it work on your head for 10 minutes. You will see that it will get hard to look like a mask. Wait for 10 minutes and then wash your hair.
