The coconut is a “functional food” rich in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fiber – the essential nutritional building blocks for perfect health. Recent research also proves that coconut oil increases your immunity and protects you from viruses, bacteria, infection, cancer, thyroid, brain and heart problems.
It is one of the best natural moisturizers and beautifies you skin. The medium chain fatty acids in coconut oil increases the fat burning ability of the body. Coconut oil is not responsible for high cholesterol, obesity or heart disease as you’ve been led to believe by edible oil marketers.
Finally the modern medicine and supplement industry is waking up to the fact that coconut oil is indeed a super food with miraculous health benefits. However, sadly not before heart disease, cancer, diabetes, obesity and a whole host of other catastrophic diseases have reached epidemic proportions due to the excessive use of omega-6 fatty acid rich refined vegetable oils.
