Coconut oil is the most healing oil you can consume, and the healthiest choice for cooking with. It is rich in lauric acid, which is antimicrobial, antibacterial, antiparasitical, and antiviral. Close to two-thirds of its saturated fat is made up of medium-chain fatty acids, which are actually health promoting and they are antimicrobial, easily digested for quick energy, and beneficial to the immune system.
Some of the health benefits of consuming coconut oil include:
- Promotes weight loss and helps maintain healthy body weight
- Reduces the risk of heart disease
- Supports thyroid function
- Increases metabolism and energy
- Prevents bacterial, viral, and fungal infections
- Helps control diabetes and chronic fatigue
- Improves digestive disorders such as Crohn's disease and IBS
- Protects against alcohol damage to the liver
- Rejuvenates skin and prevents wrinkles
