Benefits of Coconut Oil

How can an oil be good you ask? Coconut oil has lauric acid which is antiprotozoal, antibacterial, antiviral and antimicrobial. That means it will kill off harmful bacteria and other detrimental viruses that may harm you. The moment the bacteria and viruses in your body are in check, you will automatically feel better and have more energy. Light bulb!

Coconut oil is rich in saturated fats and healthy omega 3 acids. Most of us have a very unbalanced ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 fatty acids. Coconut oil will correct the balance and improve your health. Once there is balance within your body, you will definitely have more energy.

More awesome benefits of coconut oil are boosting your metabolic rate and helping to shed excess fat. The medium-chain fatty acids will be absorbed by your bod and converted to fuel quickly. You will have an energy boost by consuming coconut oil.

Millions of people are suffering from chronic fatigue and it may be so debilitating that even normal day to day activities may seem too demanding. Make coconut oil a part of your diet and in a matter of time you will probably give chronic fatigue the boot.

Here are the main benefits of coconut oil:

  1. May encourage fat burning.

I used to think I was pretty well informed about nutrition and supplements. That is, until I found out about coconut oil. My friends have known about its benefits for a while. Good thing they told ME! I have it on my shopping list and intend to use it from now on. What a blessing!
