Coconut Oil's Natural Health Benefits

When we think of coconuts, we may think of white and milky, or maybe brown and hairy, or maybe even Tom Hanks in Cast Away. But beneath its many forms and faces, did you know that coconuts are actually one of the few “superfoods” and have very profound, positive effects on health? Let’s take a closer look and find out exactly what benefits they provide.

Increased Energy and Fat Loss

Coconut oil includes medium-chain triglycerides (MCT), which are fatty acids of a medium length. Unlike long chain fatty acids, MCT is metabolized differently and considered much healthier. Not only does it helps with weight loss by providing increased metabolism, it also goes straight to the liver from the digestive tract and provide a quick and instant boost of energy. Now can you guess why people living in tropical coastal areas (like Hawaii) are normally pretty fit and not overweight? Because coconut oil is used every day as their primary cooking oil!

Better Hair

The best way to cure dry and brittle hair is to drink more water, but the next best solution is coconut oil. Rich in minerals, vitamins, and containing antimicrobial effects, coconut oil is great for growing healthy hair, repairing damaged scalps, as well as well as effectively getting rid of dandruff. Even better, coconut oil is extremely easy to use! Apply directly as a conditioner and distribute evenly throughout your hair, massage into the scalp, or even turn it into a spray for on-the-go coconut oil goodness.

Skin care

Coconut oil is an excellent massage oil that works great on all types of skin, but is especially useful as a moisturizer for dry skin. It’s absorbed quickly and leaves a silky (but not oily) feeling that helps restore elasticity to the skin, all while cleansing with its antibacterial / antimicrobial properties. But best of all, coconut oil smells great!


Rich in antioxidants, coconut oil has antiviral, antifungal, and antibacterial properties to strengthen the immune system. Along with loads of loads of vitamin B, vitamin C, and vitamin E, it’s an easy and efficient choice for healthier living. Coconut oil even reduces the chances of getting a stroke or cardiovascular disease due to being rich in lauric acid.

Improved Digestion

Bursting with a fresh coconut scent, coconut oil is a popular and healthy alternative to butter and vegetable oil. It’s also easy to digest due to its high fiber content, and will keep your bowels moving and gives your energy. It can even prevent various stomach and digestion-related problems, such as irritable bowel syndrome.

So those are some of the top natural health benefits of coconut oil. Now that you know, start living a healthier life by having a coconut each day!
