Benefits of Coconut Oil

23 January 2013


“Coconut oil has many health benefits which are attributed to the presence of lauric acid. When it is present in the body, lauric acid is converted into monolaurin, a compound that is highly toxic to viruses, bacteria, funguses and other microorganisms because of its ability to disrupt their lipid membranes and virtually destroy them.”
The benefits of coconut oil are staggering. Let me run down a brief list:
  • Hair care
  • Skin care
  • Antibacterial/microbial
  • Antioxidants
  • Weight loss
  • Pneumonia Homeopathic
  • Decrease diabetes, heart disease
  • Improves HDL:LDL ratios (good cholesterol:bad cholesterol)
  • ETC. etc. etc.
