Have you tried coconut oil? I LOVE LOVE LOVE the stuff!
Not only does it taste super yummy it’s incredibly versatile. You can use it for cooking in replacement of other cooking oils, as a salad dressing, in your smoothies for a tasty tropical kick!
It can be used for skin, hair and nails. Truly! It’s inexpensive and definitely a vital ingredient in my household.
Here’s a few other reason why coconut oil kicks ass
Coconut oil is super useful when it comes to reducing body fat. Its contains medium and short chain fatty acids which help the body burn body fat!
It is also easy to digest and it helps in healthy functioning of the thyroid.
It actually increases your metabolism by removing stress on pancreas!
The oil helps in improving the digestive system and prevents various stomach and digestion related problems including irritable bowel syndrome. (Which is a lot more common than you think!)
The saturated fats present in coconut oil have anti microbial properties and help in dealing with various bacteria, fungi, parasites, etc., that cause indigestion.
It also helps in absorption of other nutrients such as vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Which we all know are super important for maintaining a healthy functioning bod!
If you haven’t tried it yet, pick some up next time your shopping and start incorporating it into your dishes and beauty routine and see how yummy it is.
I am officially hooked!!
