It’s time to go ‘coo-coo’ for coconuts! Many researchers have found that coconut oil is the IDEAL brain food. Our brains work on carbs, sugar & fat. Healthy fats, like coconut oil, act like a carb when it comes to brain fuel, but are digested just as fast as sugar! In other words, the fat in coconut oil is used first for energy so it doesn’t contribute to weight gain.
BUT… this amazing ingredient isn’t just used for cooking. Here are some other surprising, health benefits of using coconut oil:
Your Oral Health. Simply use coconut oil as mouthwash to kill harmful bacteria. It also reduces bad breath, whitens teeth & keeps your mouth healthy.
Your Face. Apply a thin layer of coconut oil to your face right after applying your makeup for a radiantly healthy glow.
Your Skin. Apply after the shower. Coconut oil contains Vitamin E & positive antioxidant action in the body. It helps stop damage to the tissues in the body since oxidation is a major factor of skin aging.
