The 411: Coconut Oil

If you have been paying any attention to  the news lately I'm sure that you have heard a lot of talk about coconut oil and how it cures just about everything.  I currently use coconut oil on my hair, skin, and nails.  It's the perfect moisturizer and it's not too greasy like other oils that I have tried in the past.  I've even started substituting coconut oil in place of EVOO or margarine in the kitchen. Here is a recipe where I used coconut oil.

Health Benefits of Coconut Oil:

Weight loss
Reverses some of the affects of Alzheimer’s
Prevents Hair Breakage
Nail Growth
Type 1 &2 Diabetes
Bacterial Infections and Viruses
Helps to fight off yeast, fungus, and candida

Have you tried coconut oil?

I always use coconut oil for my hair and skin but I've never tried to cook with it. I may have to give that a go!

Indeed, I've heard a lot about coconut oil benefits and one of these is using it as an organic skin moisturizer and hair conditioner. I can attest to it because I've seen the effects myself.

So I am now eating paleo 90% of the time, and I am loving it! I use coconut oil for so many recipes! I haven't weighed myself but I know I've lost inches. My clothes are much looser and everyone keeps telling me I've lost weight... -Jess L
