We bet you didn’t know you could do these things with coconut oil!
10. Weight loss
Yes, coconut oil can help you lose weight! It is true! If the coconut oil is used instead of other fats, it can help you lose weight by taking the place of those other calories. The lauric acid can also boost your levels of HDL cholesterol and help keep a healthy heart.
The coconut oil is mainly comprised of medium chain fatty acids, compared to long chain fatty acids in regular oils. It basically doesn’t get packed away as fat as easily, but is sent straight to the liver where it is metabolised, therefore giving you a boost in energy!
