Coconut oil is unique in that it is comprised largely of medium chain fatty acids (MCFA) which convert more readily into energy and are rarely stored as fat in the body. They produce energy not fat. But more importantly 50% of the MCFA’s in coconut oil are lauric acid. Lauric acid is recognized for its antiviral, antibacterial and anti-protozoal function.
Coconut oil also works as a great healing salve for the skin!
So coconut oil helps you lose weight, gives a boost to the immune system, is an excellent healing salve, and a wonderful moisturizer. This is why the Polynesians call coconut trees, “The Tree of Life.”
