What healing properties come from coconut oil?
It is important that when you are selecting a brand of coconut oil you ensure that it is organic, virgin/extra-virgin coconut oil . This will mean that will retain more of its natural properties that may otherwise have been lost in the chemical refining process and will ensure it doesn’t contain any nasty trans fats.
Coconut oil boosts the body’s immunity system and helps to fight off infection by breaking down the cell membranes of viruses and bacteria, allowing your white blood cells to sweep in and finish the little blighters off!
With the increase in antibiotic resistant infections, it is important that we boost our body’s own immunity and coconut oil is a great place to start.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 boosts the body’s metabolism increasing cellular activity. This means your body is working as an efficient, powerful, well-maintained, high octane machine rather than a sluggish, disgruntled, on its last legs and ready to go on strike, broken down banger!
