With its numerous health benefits, there is no question why coconut oil has gained a lot of attention especially among the wellness community. Coconut Tree is considered as the "Tree of Life" to many Southeast Asian countries and here's why:
Lauric Acid in coconut oil fights bacteria and infections which means that it boosts immunity (say bye bye to processed, artificial vitamin C tablets!)
It is a great source for healthy fats and can actually help lower cholesterol and improve heart health.
Feeling lethargic? Take a tablespoon of coconut oil a day for an energy boost.
While coco oil plays a huge role in nutrition, it does wonders for skincare and beauty as well! So make sure to stash a bottle of this versatile oil both in your pantry and beauty cabinet too.
