Can coconut oil help with osteoporosis and arthritis?
Coconut oil can be of great benefit to people suffering from, or at risk of, osteoporosis or arthritis. It helps the body to absorb calcium and magnesium which is essential for strong bones.
Antioxidants have been used in the treatment of osteoporosis to prevent bone loss and maintain bone structure. Coconut oil is rich in antioxidants. Antioxidants are powerful substances that help protect your body from free radicals, which are unstable molecules that damage healthy cells. A diet rich in antioxidants creates a body that is vibrant and healthy.
Coconut oil strengthens the bones and reduces the pain associated with arthritis and it is also a natural anti-inflammatory.
