I heard a lot about coconut oil being good for you lately. It’s kind of funny because it has gotten a pretty bad rep for all the saturated fats it’s supposed to contain. But apparently it is really good for you, for lots of different reasons. Like it contains lauric acid which helps fight viruses and bacteria.
I found this article and the list of conditions coconut oil can help you with seems very extensive.
•it can help with weight loss
•regulate blood pressure
•slow down or reverse the symptoms of Alzheimer’s!
•improve blood sugar levels for diabetics
•and improve heart diseases
to name but a few.
Pretty amazing! I love watching videos about people’s stories and their successes they had with alternative medicine or just a simple change of diet.
It can also be used in skin and hair care for it’s moisturizing and nourishing qualities.
•helps with dry scalp
•helps to regrow and condition damaged hair
•can be used as a massage oil
•and other skin infections
I personally have tried it just a few times on a little patch of eczema I developed and it seems to work really well. Didn’t break my skin out either so far.
Pretty amazing how food is cosmetics and medicine at the same time!! The line is pretty blurry when you use whole foods. Unlike the chemicals that are our modern medicines and cosmetics.
Personally I’m not a huge coconut fan, I like the juice and flesh of fresh coconuts and a little bit of coconut here and there, but some products can taste quite rancid to me. But I bought some organic, extra virgin coconut oil and have used it for spreads and it’s quite nice actually, much better tasting then I thought and if you use it for your skin and hair it’s really rich and you only need a very small amount, so it lasts a long time, which makes it really affordable.
Have you tried any food as a medicine or cosmetic? Let me know in the comments!
