Benefits of Coconut Oil

People have been raving about the power of coconut oil for a while now. This antioxidant oil has been said to have a wide range of benefits such as metabolic support and anti-inflammatory properties. Let’s break down the evidence-based health perks and ways in which you can utilize coconut oil in your everyday life

Healthier Hair

Coconut oil is a popular product that people opt to use in their hair to create a shinier effect. The oil is extremely moisturizing and since it absorbs easier, the effects it has on your hair lasts longer than other hair oils. The oil is very penetrating so it can also help repair damaged or dry hard. Before showering, rub the oil into your dry hair and let it stay for 15-30 minutes before shampooing and conditioning in the shower.

Energy Benefits

Coconut oil is high in MCT content, which can offer an energy boost when you digest the oil. The MCFAs of coconut oil are sent directly to the liver to be converted into energy. Coconut oil produces a longer sustained energy and increases your metabolism. Add a dash to your morning smoothie, coffee, or juice to receive this energy boost.

Oil pulling

A common practice is called “oil pulling” in which you swish coconut oil around in your mouth for15-20 minutes. This ancient practice is used to remove harmful bacteria in the mouth, reduce bad breath, and reduce plaque. Another great benefit of oil pulling is while it is helping eliminate bacteria in your mouth it also leads to a decrease of acid production in the stomach, which can benefit your digestion and gut health overall.
