Coconut or the cream or oil derived from it has impressive benefits for both internal and external purposes;
Sunburn relief, helps heal bruises, scrapes and cuts, eye cream, hair moisturizer, acne treatment.
Helps with weight loss, aids in digestion, increases energy level, stimulates metabolism, slows skin aging.
For those of us who feel coconut contains fat, coconut oil doesn’t contain your average saturated fats, like the ones you would find in cheese or beef.
They contain Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) – which are fatty acids of a medium length.
Most of the fatty acids in the diet are long-chain fatty acids, but the medium-chain fatty acids in coconut oil are metabolized differently.
