Coconut Oil Has Superpowers

I have come to realize that the simplest foods can be the most effective at combating health issues. If you are searching for a natural solution, I definitely recommend that you add coconut oil to your grocery list. Coconut oil has numerous health benefits—here are just three of my favorites!

Arthritis supporter

In an animal study, rats were injected with Freund’s adjuvant—mycobacterium that causes arthritis, ulcers, inflammation, and death of tissue. The anti-inflammatory and antioxidant actions of the coconut oil helped to decrease swelling and inflammation.

CANCER fighter

A study in Malaysia showed that coconut oil decreased the side effects of chemotherapy and it helped to improve the quality of life in patients undergoing chemotherapy for breast cancer. Coconut oil has also been shown to prevent, stop, or slow the spread of colon, breast, and endometrial cancer cells.

germ killer

A study in Nigeria showed that coconut oil was active against Candida—a fungi that can be drug-resistant and can cause many health issues. An additional study showed that the growth of Clostridium difficile—an infection that can be severe and resistant to antibiotics—was inhibited when exposed to lipolyzed coconut oil. Another study showed that coconut oil was just as effective as chlorhexidine (a synthetic oral rinse) at reducing Streptococcus mutans—a common bacteria that can cause cavities.

Have I convinced you that coconut oil has superpowers? If so, go out and buy pure, organic, unrefined coconut oil and aim to consume 2 tablespoons of coconut oil per day (max). The list of ways that you can use coconut oil is just as long as the list of its benefits. You can spread some on your sprouted-grain toast, throw some in your smoothie, or add some to your baked goods. Swish a tablespoon of coconut oil around in your mouth for 20 minutes—do this three times per week, spit the coconut oil in the garbage after you are done, and brush your teeth afterwards—to help prevent cavities!

How do you use coconut oil?

Processing…
Success! You’re on the list.
