Benefits of Coconut Oil

Posted by Deborah Orlick Levy, MS, RDN on

Boosting Bone Health:

  • Coconut oil can improve calcium and magnesium absorption in the body, which in turn is greatly beneficial to dental and bone health.

Boosting Metabolism:

  • Considered a “friendly fat”
  • Coconut oil is“thermogenic” – eating it tends to boost fat burning
  • Many studies show that medium chain triglycerides can boost metabolism
  • Medium chain fatty acids are metabolized differently than most fats

Upgrading Smoothies:

  • Tastes delicious
  • Gives a creamy consistency
  • The body uses its medium-chain fatty acids as an energy source instead of storing it away.
  • Added health benefits – spark your metabolism in the morning with a scoop of coconut oil in your smoothie

Getting Rid of Body Odor:

  • Smooth some coconut oil on your armpits. The lauric acid can help kill the bacteria that causes body odor.

Fighting Cold:

  • Coconut can help boost immunity and help fight colds
  • Contains lauric acid, which has anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, and anti-viral properties that might help fend off potential illnesses. A number of studies show that coconut oil can boost a weakened immune system by improving white blood cell counts, which helps the body fight viruses and infections.

Preventing Chafing:

  • Can also help treat the infected area – great for babies with diaper rash.

Buff your Skin:

  • Coconut oil is a fantastic ingredient for DIY body scrub. Just mix it up with brown sugar or salt, and add a drop or two of the essential oil of your choice for a gentle but effective exfoliating scrub.
