We are here to help break down the phenomena known as coconut oil and why it’s so good for you!

This superfood is much more than just a healthy substitution for his frowned upon friend butter. Coconut oil is an edible oil harvested from coconut palms and the oil is simple extracted from the meat of the fruit as its packaged for us to experiment in every aspect of our being. Seriously, coconut oil has many positive affects on our health, skin, and kitchens.

“Virgin” coconut oil products are currently in the spotlight because they are unbleached and have not been deodorized or refined which basically means the oil is generally unprocessed. Diabetes, heart disease, chronic fatigue, IBS and Alzheimer’s are just a few of the conditions that use this miracle oil to fight symptoms. Coconut oil has also been said to boost the immune system and energy levels of those who consume the substance.

Trying to lose weight? This oil helps with that as well, which is ironic because of its high calorie and saturated fat content. On the flip, looking for something to make fried food delicious? Look no further — coconut oil to the rescue!

Coconut oil is also an incredible moisturizer. Dry hands, lips, and skin will all benefit from this salve.

After discovering all these uses for coconut oil, we wouldn’t be surprised if you end up with a 5 gallon tub from Costco in your home next week.

Not just for the kitchen, coconut oil is more versatile than you think…
