Coconut OIl - Delicious, Nutritious and Oh So Versatile
Posted Oct 04 2012 3:23am
I am sure you have heard by now about Coconut Oil, but do you know why it has become such a staple to so many peoples diets?
Raises HDL Cholesterol - HDL cholesterol is the good type, it helps clear out plaque from arteries and higher levels mean lower heart attack risks
Belly Fat - There are reports out there that coconut oil helps shed belly fat part of this is from the above mentioned HDL levels.
Antioxidants - Virgin Coconut Oil is smothered with antioxidants, good for the body, immune system and THE SKIN
Antimicrobial - The compound manolaurin in coconut oil provides coconut oil with antimicrobial aspects helping to fight against things such as E.Coli.
But coconut oil is not just good to eat, there are so many things you can use it for.
Makes an awesome body scrub all you have to do is add sugar or salt
Hair Repair (Just rub it all over your hair leave it overnight then wash it out)
Toothpaste (I havent tried this one yet but apparently coconut oil and baking soda mixed together)
Search the web and the list goes on and on.
I like to use this brand Nutiva Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil.
The most consistent best price I have found is on Amazon. You can get 2 54fl oz containers for $54.71 with free shipping. This will last our family of 3 at least 6 months.
Try using it instead of other oils in your cooking , its delicious !
