5. Coconut oil helps to improve digestive health
Coconut oil contains a fatty acid called lauric acid, which helps to eliminate candida albicans, a yeast infection that can upset the balance of healthy bacteria in the digestive tract.
The medium-chain fats found in coconut oil are absorbed easily and used as a preferential source of energy, helping to increase the body’s metabolic rate.
The best form of coconut oil to use is the unrefined, cold pressed coconut oil.
What to do:
• Put a teaspoon of coconut oil into your morning coffee for a bit of a wake up boost
• Add a tablespoon or two into your morning oats for some extra flavor
• Use coconut oil for frying your eggs, it has a high smoke point making it ideal for frying.
