Did you know that coconut oil can kill harmful bacteria?

It’s made up of 50% Lauric Acid, which is used medically for viral infections. Meanwhile, its high fatty acid content makes it a good hunger suppressant, as the medium chain triglycerides (MCT) in the acid reduce appetite. Coconut oil can lower cholesterol, too: saturated fats increase good cholesterol (high density lipoprotein) levels while reducing the levels of bad cholesterol (low density lipoprotein).

However, kickass as it is, coconut oil has myths floating around that are just not true. Many people think that coconut oil being thick and difficult to be absorbed by the body because it solidifies at 24 degrees Celsius. However, it is actually a very thin liquid – neither greasy nor sticky – and is very easily absorbed. Other thing that high saturated fat count will lead to obesity and heart diseases. But in truth the saturated fats in coconut oil actually increase the body’s metabolism, leading to higher energy consumption and thus faster fat burning.

Coconut oil is a very good thing for your skin. It has great penetrating and moisturizing properties. Just leave some applied pure coconut oil overnight and you’ll be good. Another popular use is taking it as a hard conditioner, as well as reducing dandruff and preventing lice via microbial properties.

However, be aware that refined coconut oil, usually extracted from dried coconut meat, is usually hydrogenating, thus containing those harmful transfats. On the other hand, pure or virgin coconut oil is neither hydrogenated nor bleached or deodorized, and retains both natural favors and odor. Try and fit it at your local super market, though avoid stuff that is cloudy or has impurities!
