Healthful for cooking.
Coconut oil will not become rancid and oxidize when introduced to moderate heat (unlike other oils). It has a shelf life of two years or more.
Assists in weight loss.
Weight loss can be achieved by replacing long-chain fatty acids with medium-chain fatty acids. MCFAs are easily digested and converted into energy, speeding metabolism.
Addresses candida albicans, fungus and bacteria.
Lauric acid in coconut oil is toxic to viruses, funguses and bacteria. It targets viruses, including those of measles, influenza, and hepatitis C.
Youthifies the skin.
Medium-chain fatty acids deeply penetrate, moisturise and act as a protective barrier against environmental and free radical damage.
