Coconut oil is used in many natural products as well as within Support products. We use it in our dish-washing liquid because it is a natural moisturizer. Over the years, we have seen and heard that there are many benefits of Coconut Oil, when used both internally and externally. Here are 5 benefits of Coconut Oil.:
1. Aids in boosting Cholesterol level
Use of coconut oil has been shown to modestly hike one’s level of good cholesterol.
2. Good for Blood Sugar and Diabetes
Coconut oil helps to lower obesity levels in the body and also battles insulin resistance; if not treated, can often lead to type two diabetes.
3. Helps Fight Back Against Alzheimer’s Disease
The MCFA component in coconut oil – especially its generation of ketones by the liver – aids in mending brain function in Alzheimer patients.
4. Helps Stop Heart Disease and High Blood Pressure
Coconut oil is considered to be high in saturated fats, which helps to boost HDL (or “good”) cholesterol that protects against heart disease and lowering high triglycerides. Additionally, coconut oil helps turn bad cholesterol into good cholesterol.
5. Aids in Liver Health
Coconut oil also guards against any damage to the liver, and also aids in curing urinary tract infections.
