Organic coconut oil is very beneficial oil that can be used on the hair, skin, and nails. It is rich in medium chain fatty acids, and the lauric acid turns into the anti-microbial monolaurin to treat internal problems in the body, and to support the immune system in AIDS victims.
Organic coconut oil releases ketones. Many people follow a low carbohydrate high protein diet to promote the release of ketones to burn fat, but the regular consumption of coconut oil can aid fat loss without the unpleasant symptoms that manifest during a high protein low carbohydrate diet.
Do not ingest cheap refined coconut oil, which can be used on the skin and hair. Stick to the organic varieties. Yes, they are slightly more expensive, but your internal body will thank you.
Some individuals like to ingest one teaspoon of organic coconut oil per day, while others ingest up to four teaspoons. Coconut oil turns to liquid in warmer temperatures, but at room temperature, it is slightly hard. A teaspoon of hardened coconut oil is equivalent to approximately two tablespoons of coconut oil.

Cholesterol is necessary for the brain’s health. Twenty five percent of the brain is made of cholesterol, but the over abundance of disinformation by the media has made many of us afraid of eating too much cholesterol. The truth is that the brain relies on cholesterol as an antioxidant, prevents ion leakage, supports the vast network of neurons, and helps the membrane to function effectively.
Coconut oil contains saturated fat, but the body readily absorbs this medium chain fatty acid. There are downsides to ingesting coconut oil. It can lead to diarrhoea in some people, so it is better to stick to one teaspoon of organic coconut oil and see how the oil affects you mentally and physically. A good way to add coconut oil to your diet is to use it in place of butter or olive oil for cooking. It is excellent on roast potatoes, great to use in baking, and it can be used in place of butter in cookies and flapjacks.
