Coconut Oil

As we head into winter, be sure to nourish your skin, hair and joints the old fashioned way: with nature’s therapeutics ⁠

In addition to being a fantastic moisturizer when applied directly to the skin or hair, coconut oil has many other benefits when used internally. Try adding a spoon of it to your morning breakfast smoothie, or try your hand at oil pulling first thing in the morning.⁠

Some of the internal benefits include:⁠

~ Consuming it reduces inflammation, supports cognitive and heart health, and boosts energy levels.⁠

~ Coconut oil has been known to clear up and improve UTI symptoms and kidney infections. The MCFAs in the oil work as a natural antibiotic by disrupting the lipid coating on bacteria and killing them. ⁠

~ Research has shown that coconut oil directly protects the liver from damage.⁠

~ Said to reduce inflammation and arthritis.⁠

~ Boosts the immune system – it boasts antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties. ⁠

~ Said to support memory and brain function and improve energy levels.⁠

~ May improve skin issues (burns, eczema, dandruff, dermatitis and psoriasis).⁠
