Coconut oil is incredibly versatile and can be used to treat a lot of different issues.
According to certified nutritionist and naturopathic physician Bruce Fife, author of The Coconut Oil Miracle and president of the Coconut Research Center, the fat found in coconut oil can help your body burn fat, because the saturated fat found in coconut oil is made of different fatty acids than what’s found in other oils, like canola or avocado.
These fats have different effects in the body compared with most other dietary fats.
The fatty acids in coconut oil can encourage your body to burn fat, and they provide quick energy to your body and brain.
They also raise HDL (good) cholesterol in your blood, which may help reduce heart disease risk.
Coconut oil is mostly known for moisturizing the skin, but it also increases your metabolism.
However, it can also improve your dental health and brain functioning.
