    What are the health benefits of using coconut oil, and did it work for you?

    I have heard and read that coconut oil has many health benefits by cooking with it or applying it. Have you used it, what did it do for you?

    Think about it: Currently, coronary heart disease and related problems are the number one cause of death in the united states. The field of cardiology didn’t even exist prior to 1940, and there has been a 60 fold increase in cardiologists since that time.

    Also, coconut oil and other saturated fats were phased out since that time, and has been replaced with “healthy” vegetable and seed oils.

    You’d think with all those specialists and the move away from saturated fats , we’d be seeing less heart disease…. except, we aren’t. In fact, rates of heart disease have risen despite doctors best attempts to get us to eat low-fat whole grain diets low in saturated fats (or perhaps because of this).

    Saturated fats are necessary for cell function and growth, and have been linked to increased health and even weight loss. Coconut oil is an all-star among saturated fats with many benefits beyond its strict nutritional content.

    Over 1/3 of the world’s population depends on coconut for food, and if you haven’t already, you should consider incorporating coconut oil into your diet!

      Thanks jabelufiroz, it certainly can help keep a healthy heart, besides all the other benefits for our hair, skin, teeth, anti-microbial, digestion, and so on... I'm going to buy it this weekend for sure. Wish I heard about it sooner!!
