The Science behind Why Coconut Oil Helps You to Lose Weight and Burn Belly Fat:

 

If you are looking for a natural and easy way to lose weight and melt the stubborn belly fat, you have come to the right place!

 

More scientific studies and research have now shown that coconut oil not only burns stubborn abdominal fat, but it also improves metabolic markers and helps you to lose weight.

 

In this article, you will be introduced to 3 recent studies about the relationship between coconut oil and weight loss.

 

The first study is from The Journal of Nutrition where the studies of medium chain fatty acids (MCFAs) are investigated by researchers. These MCFAs in coconut oil can boost your metabolism and increase your energy. They also decrease in food consumption because they make you feel full longer therefore help reduce your body fat. The authors of this study highly recommend using oils that contain MCFAs, such as coconut oil, as a tool to drop extra abdominal fat, manage a healthy weight, and even as a way to treat obesity.

 

The second study in ISRN Pharmacology discovered that high concentration of MCFAs are found in virgin coconut oil (VCO) which in the study had shown beneficial effect in reduction of waist circumference.

 

The third study is also the most fascinating study which was published in the Journal of Lipids in 2009. This clinical trial involved 40 women aged between 20-40 years old. These women were divided into 2 groups S and C. Group S consumed 30 mL (2tbsp) of soy bean oil daily and group C consumed 30 mL (2tbsp) of coconut oil daily as well. This trial happened over a 12-week period and during this time all of these women were to follow a balanced hypocaloric diet and to walk for 50 min per day.

 

Results showed that the group that consumed the coconut oil had a decrease in abdominal fat, while the soybean oil group actually showed increases in belly fat. Further more, they concluded that dietetic supplementation with coconut oil does not cause dyslipidemia and seems to promote a reduction in abdominal obesity.

 

In summary, here are 3 scientific reasons why coconut oil is super awesome for weight loss:

 

  1. Coconut oil keeps you full longer

 

  1. Coconut oil fires up your metabolism

 

  1. Coconut oil is a fat that’s less likely to be stored as fat

Chapter 1: Secret #1: Coconut Oil’s Extraordinary Components

Coconut oil is an edible fatty oil derived from matured coconuts, which are reaped from the coconut palm. The oil is used to make medicine, cosmetics, and in industry. Coconut oil is also used in alternative medicine and treatment methods. It is a rich source of medium-chain triglycerides—a type of saturated fat that is actually good for you. In fact, 90% of coconut oil is made up of saturated fats. But don’t worry: these saturated fats won’t clog your arteries.

Coconut oil is widely used in tropical countries such as the Philippines and Thailand. In fact, studies have shown that populations that consume large amounts of coconuts are among the healthiest people on the planet. One example is the Tokelauan population of New Zealand whose diet consists largely of calories from coconuts. The Tokelauans are in excellent health, with no evidence of heart disease.

The beauty and health benefits of coconut oil can be attributed to the presence of three chief acids, which brings us to the first part of coconut oil’s first massive secret:

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Lauric Acid: Lauric acid is a medium-chain fatty acid that makes up 50% of coconut oil. Coconut oil is, in fact, the most abundant source of lauric acid. The properties of lauric acid include antimicrobial, antiviral, antifungal, and antiprotozoal.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Capric Acid: Capric acid is another saturated fatty acid found in coconut oil. It has strong antiviral properties, and is the active ingredient that gives coconut oil its ability to trigger weight loss and boost energy.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Caprylic Acid: Caprylic acid is a potent antioxidant. This triglyceride is effective in restoring pH levels and treating yeast infections.

This unique blend of saturated fatty acids is what gives coconut oil its potent medicinal properties. All three fatty acids work together in harmony to produce all the wonderful effects of coconut oil.

The Magic of Lauric Acid

As the main component of coconut oil, lauric acid stands out as the chief contributor to the oil’s health effects. When lauric acid is introduced to the body, it is converted into monolaurin. Research shows that monolaurin acts as a catalyst for dealing with viruses and harmful bacteria. The compound specifically targets bacterial infections like herpes and hepatitis C. Because monolaurin is such a potent antiviral, studies are currently underway in the Philippines to determine the effectiveness of the compound in treating and potentially curing HIV/AIDS.

The Components of Coconut Oil

The other components of coconut oil also play a key role in the oil’s health effects. Consider this the second part of coconut oil’s first secret.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Saturated Fatty Acids: Approximately 90% of coconut oil is composed of saturated fatty acids. The body digests these triglycerides well. In addition to the three chief acids mentioned earlier, myristic acid and palmitic acid can also be found in coconut oil.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids: One type of polyunsaturated fat exists in coconut oil, and goes by the name of linoleic acid—an omega-6 fatty acid. Linoleic acid is helpful in weight loss efforts and in treating artherosclerosis. The weight loss effect of coconut oil is due in part to linoleic acid as it helps reduce body fat deposits.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Monounsaturated Fatty Acids: Oleic acid is the only monounsaturated fat found in coconut oil. It lends the oil its fat-burning ability, thereby helping with weight loss. Oleic acid is thought to prevent the onset of diabetes and lowers blood pressure.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Polyphenols: Coconut oil contains polyphenols called phenolic acid, which possesses antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and analgesic properties. Phenolic acid stimulates cell receptors and regulates enzyme function.

#
p<>{color:#1C1C1C;}. Fatty Acid Derivatives:

*
p<>{color:#1C1C1C;}. Betaines, which are considered to be endurance-boosters.

*
p<>{color:#1C1C1C;}. Ethanolamides, which combine the properties of alcohol and amides in one molecule.

*
p<>{color:#1C1C1C;}. Ethoxylates, which possess the ability to cleanse the skin of dirt and bacteria.

*
p<>{color:#1C1C1C;}. Fatty acid esters

*
p<>{color:#1C1C1C;}. Fatty polysorbates

*
p<>{color:#1C1C1C;}. Monoglycerides, which are completely harmless.

*
p<>{color:#1C1C1C;}. Polyol esters

#
p<>{color:#1C1C1C;}. Fatty Alcohol Derivatives:

*
p<>{color:#1C1C1C;}. Fatty alcohol sulfate

*
p<>{color:#1C1C1C;}. Fatty alcohol ether sulfate

*
p<>{color:#1C1C1C;}. Fatty chlorides

#
p<>{color:#1C1C1C;}. Vitamins and Minerals:

*
p<>{color:#1C1C1C;}. Vitamin D: This vitamin is essential for the function of the immune system, the regulation of calcium, and the maintenance of healthy bones and teeth.

*
p<>{color:#1C1C1C;}. Vitamin K: This vitamin is important for blood clots, which prevent excessive bleeding.

*
p<>{color:#1C1C1C;}. Iron: This mineral is vital for overall health. Iron provides you with more energy and improves mental and physical performance.

Chapter 2: Secret #2: Coconut Oil Nutrients Promote Healthy Hair

Both the quality and quantity of your hair contributes to self-confidence. There are many hair products out there that claim to thicken your hair, make it shiny, reduce hair fall, and ward away frizz. There is always a catch, however. Synthetic hair care products are often loaded with chemicals that may dry out your hair while reducing hair fall or frizz or dullness—or whatever claims are printed on the label. The best products are usually the most expensive ones—too expensive, perhaps, for your blue jean budget.

There are drawbacks with salon treatments as well. Perhaps you’d like a cellophane treatment in order to achieve shiny hair, or maybe you’d like a Brazilian blowout. Sure, go right ahead. Your hair will look great for a week before it begins to fall out and becomes dry. Pretty soon, you’ll be having bad hair days every day, not to mention split-ends galore. Sound familiar? You’re not the only one. Women turn to salons for a quick hair fix all the time. The problem is, the products being put in your hair at the salon often strip your hair of moisture and health.

Luckily, there is a simple solution for unhealthy hair. Stop damaging your hair with salon treatments and traditional hair care products. When all else fails, try incorporating coconut oil into your hair care regimen. You’ll save money, and you’ll look amazing doing it, too. Coconut oil is the best source of natural nutrients for your hair. These natural nutrients keeps your hair strong, nourished, and protected from premature balding and excessive hair loss.

Coconut oil prevents protein loss—specifically keratin. Keratin is an essential protein for the growth of healthy hair. Keratin deficiency tends to cause dull and brittle hair. Coconut oil also acts as an amazing conditioner that aids the re-growth process of damaged hair. It also reverses hair damage and prevents future damage by supplying your hair with the essential proteins required to heal and thwart damage.

To get the best out of coconut oil, apply the oil to your hair daily, specifically after showering. If dandruff is an issue, coconut oil can help. Simply massage the oil into your scalp on a regular basis. Doing so practically ensures your hair remains dandruff-free for life. The magic of coconut oil doesn’t stop there. If you are prone to lice, applying coconut oil to your hair will ward away lice and nits.

Because coconut oil encourages healthy hair, it is often used in manufacturing shampoos and conditioners. The oil works just as well on its own, so you can save some money by skipping the conventional hair products, and opting for pure coconut oil instead.

Benefits of Coconut Oil for Hair

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Cooling Properties: If your scalp is prone to profuse sweating, then coconut oil is your salvation. Massaging the oil into your scalp before walking out into the scalding heat will provide your scalp with a pleasant cooling effect.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Moisture Retention: Coconut oil is stable and does not break down easily. Therefore, it has a high capacity for retaining moisture. It does not allow moisture to escape or evaporate, thus, coconut oil keeps your hair soft and moisturized—which is a quality that prevents hair breakage from occurring.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Hair Loss: If hair loss is an issue you can’t seem to escape, try boiling fresh sage leaves in coconut oil. Let the mixture cool before applying it to your hair and scalp. Alternatively, you can boil gooseberries in coconut oil instead, and use the mixture in the same way for fruity-scented hair.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Hair Damage: Due to the high content of lauric acid in coconut oil, the oil inhibits protein loss in both damaged and undamaged hair. Because the oil has an extremely low molecular weight, it is easily absorbed by hair, giving the oil the capability of penetrating deep inside the hair shaft.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Hair Conditioner: Studies show that coconut oil works better than most hair conditioners in the market. To use coconut oil as a hair conditioner, simply warm it up, and apply it to your hair every other day. Doing so will provide your hair with silkiness and a beautiful sheen.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Styling: Forget the hair spray, mousse, and gel—coconut oil works just as well. Upon heating, coconut oil melts; when cooled, the oil condenses, thus working as an efficient gel.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Split Ends: Split ends are a woman’s worst nightmare. Fortunately, coconut oil is useful in this case as well. To minimize split ends, simply mix equal parts of coconut oil and almond oil, and massage the mixture into the problem areas.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Anti-Dandruff: Due to the presence of various fatty acids in coconut oil, it works as an effective anti-dandruff agent. For maximum results, try mixing castor oil and coconut oil with lukewarm water. You can substitute sesame oil with castor oil if you wish. Apply the mixture to your hair like you would a conditioner. Leave it on for 30 minutes, then shampoo your hair afterwards. Practice this routine regularly, and your hair will be dandruff-free forever.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Lice Protection: Skip the products that remove lice fairly well, but not without leaving your hair dry and damaged due to the chemicals contained in them. Opt for coconut oil instead. For an effective lice treatment, simply put coconut oil in your hair and run it through with a fine comb.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Hair Toning: Coconut oil is an effective hair toner, especially for dry hair. All you need to do is apply a warm mixture of coconut oil and lavender oil onto your scalp before you go to bed. Leave it in overnight, then wash it out in the morning.

Chapter 3: Secret #3: Coconut Oil is a Moisturizer in Disguise

Incredible skin is perhaps one of the most sought-after beauty qualities. Many people turn to the moisturizing effects of mineral oil—a distillation product of petroleum. Unfortunately, mineral oil, though fairly effective, has a high potential for adverse skin reactions. It can irritate sensitive skin, leaving rashes and itchiness in its wake.

You can have all the benefits of mineral oil without the side effects by using coconut oil in your skin care regimen instead. Coconut oil serves as an excellent moisturizer, skin smoothened, and massage oil. It prevents and cures dryness and flaking skin. Coconut oil application on the skin even protects the precious organ from the harmful effects of the sun’s rays.

Perhaps the best qualities that coconut oil possesses are its anti-aging and antioxidant properties. Coconut oil delays the onset of wrinkles, sagging skin, and age spots. It also prevents degenerative diseases and the widely feared thing called premature aging. Due to its amazing properties, coconut oil is frequently used to treat various skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, and psoriasis.

Benefits of Coconut Oil for Skin

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Essential Proteins: Due to its high protein content, coconut oil keeps your skin healthy and rejuvenated. The oil also aids in the production of new skin cells and tissue repair. Damaged skin cells are readily repaired by regular use of coconut oil.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Vitamin E: Vitamin E is essential for skin repair, nourishment, keeping skin smooth, for healthy skin growth, and for protecting against dryness and flaking. This vitamin also prevents wrinkling and other signs of premature aging.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Skin Softener: Soft, supple skin is an extremely attractive quality. This quality is easily achieved by simply incorporating coconut oil into your skin care regimen. Coconut oil heals dry skin and any hard skin conditions. To use coconut oil as a skin softener, simply apply coconut oil directly onto your problem areas. Coconut oil is also great for softening any cracks or hardening on the soles of the feet.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Exfoliant: You can mix coconut oil with grainy materials like sugars or salt for a quick exfoliant without the irritation. Using coconut oil as an exfoliating agent will scrape off dead skin cells, even out your skin tone, close your pores, and leave your skin with a soft texture.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Lip Gel: Chapped or cracked lips are highly uncomfortable, and maybe even unattractive. Conventional lip gels or “chapsticks” usually contain toxic ingredients that are harmful when ingested. Consider using coconut oil as a lip gel alternative. Coconut oil is edible, and if you accidentally swallow it, it will only produce more beneficial effects. You really can’t lose when it comes to coconut oil.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Makeup Remover: Remove makeup the safe way by using coconut oil. Unlike makeup removers in the market, coconut oil won’t irritate the sensitive areas on your face. The oil is completely harmless if it accidentally comes into contact with the delicate areas on your face.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Sunscreen: Coconut oil works as an effective sunscreen/sunblock that protects your skin from harmful ultraviolet rays. Studies show that coconut oil blocks roughly 20% of the sun’s UV rays.

Because coconut oil is so powerful, your skin only needs a tiny amount to create a protective shield. Using too much coconut oil is anti-attractive as you’ll only look like an oily mess. In coconut oil’s case, less is more.

Chapter 4: Secret #4: Coconut Oil Lets You Eat Fat to Lose Fat

Coconut oil is one of the best when it comes to superfoods that trigger weight loss. Common sense may tell you that the high content of saturated fats in coconut oil couldn’t possibly promote weight loss. Think again.

Surprisingly, the short-chain and medium-chain fatty acids found in large numbers in coconut oil actually contribute to weight loss. Merely cooking with coconut oil is enough to shed a few pounds. Amazed yet?

The weight loss effects of coconut oil all work together to catalyze weight loss. Here’s how:

Ways Coconut Oil Aids Weight Loss

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Coconut Oil is an Energy-Booster: Specifically, the medium-chain fatty acids that coconut oil contains are a source of good calories. This is due to the fact that these triglycerides increase energy expenditure by as much as 5%. This has the potential to lead to significant weight loss over time.

Furthermore, the fatty acids found in coconut oil metabolize differently from other saturated fats. Unlike the saturated fats contained in meat and dairy products, your body does not store coconut oil’s saturated fats. Instead, your body transports these fats directly to the liver where they will be converted into energy.

For weight loss, simply add two tablespoons of pure coconut oil to your daily dietary regimen. Coconut oil works best when consumed in the mornings. Increased energy helps you burn more fat.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Coconut Oil Staves Off Hunger and Cravings: One interesting aspect of coconut oil is that it can kill your hunger, thus making you eat less without so much as trying. Because coconut oil reduces your appetite, it enables you to lose body weight over time. When your body metabolizes medium-chain fatty acids, it produces ketone bodies. Ketone bodies have the added benefit of reducing hunger.

To curb your hunger or ward off cravings, all you have to do is consume 2-3 servings of coconut oil. Similarly, consuming coconut oil thirty minutes before meals will help you feel full faster, thus decreasing the likelihood of overeating.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Coconut Oil Balances Your Hormones: Proper hormone synthesis is essential for regulating metabolism and digestion. Coconut oil promotes the production of healthy hormones, which play a key role in quick fat-burning, improving digestion, and increasing energy. These are all important factors in any weight loss endeavor.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Coconut Oil Aids in Nutrient Absorption: A daily intake of coconut oil enhances the ability of the digestive tract to absorb vitamins and nutrients more effectively. When your body has all the vitamins and nutrients it requires, you’ll lose weight faster due to less stress, improved digestion, and increased energy.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Coconut Oil Burns Fat: Say you’d like to lose weight fast by decreasing your caloric intake, only you don’t want to compromise your health. Coconut oil can make this happen without having you feel weak and tired due to decreased caloric intake. Coconut oil enhances your body’s ability to digest food and absorb nutrients, thereby enabling you to eat less without compromising your health.

Increase your body’s potential to burn fat faster through regular consumption of coconut oil.

Chapter 5: Secret #5: Coconut Oil is an Immunity-Booster

Enrich, enhance, and prolong your life with coconut oil. Just a tablespoon of coconut each day is all it takes to improve your immunity. Immunity is your body’s ability to resist infections and other toxins by using antibodies to combat invading viruses and bacteria. Your immune system is too precious to neglect—it could always use a good boost. Coconut oil can serve as that much needed immunity boost.

Coconut oil is scientifically proven to strengthen the immune system. Due to the antimicrobial lipids and all the fatty acids that coconut oil contains, the oil is extremely good for your immune system. The triglycerides found in coconut oil possess all the beneficial properties that your immune system needs to function, including antiviral, antifungal, and antibacterial. Because coconut oil is such a potent antiviral, it can combat diseases like the flu, herpes, and even HIV.

Coconut Oil’s Antiviral Effect

When lauric acid is introduced to the body, it is converted into monolaurin. Monolaurin is the antiviral that fights viruses to the death. Viruses that are enclosed in lipid or phospholipid shells are no match for the power of monolaurin. It dissolves lipid layers, and then kills the virus hiding within.

Coconut Oil Combats Microbes

Microbes are microorganisms that cause disease. They are actually the oldest life-forms on earth. Coconut oil has an adverse effect on various microbes, including yeast, bacteria, protozoans, and fungus. As a powerful antifungal, coconut oil is extremely effective at fighting Candida—a form of yeast. It may even be effective at eliminating drug-resistant forms of Candida.

Coconut Oil Has an Anticancer Potential

Research hints at coconut oil’s anticancer benefits. In one study, animals with tumors were fed a diet rich in medium-chain fatty acids like the ones found in coconut oil. The study reported a significant decrease in tumor size. In another study, mice were administered with gastric cancer cells. Medium-chain triglycerides actually slowed the growth rate of tumors in those mice.

Coconut Oil Improves Nutrition in Sick People

This particular quality is especially helpful for children and adults who suffer from diseases which result in poor nutrient absorption. Since coconut oil improves absorption and digestion, it helps increase caloric intake. This aids in weight maintenance and improves nutrition. Nutrition and adequate weight are essential for improving the function of the immune system in sick individuals.

How to Use Coconut Oil to Improve Immunity

Essentially, all it takes is the mere incorporation of a little coconut oil into your dietary habits. Because coconut oil’s antiviral effects are so potent, just one teaspoon a day is all you need to keep the doctor away.

If you are one of those people who are wary of eating pure oil on a daily basis, simply incorporate coconut oil into your food. You can take that teaspoon of coconut oil and stir it into your coffee or tea. Cooking your food with coconut oil won’t take away the oil’s effects. You can even mix a teaspoon of coconut oil into your smoothie, oatmeal, or soup.

You can even get your daily intake of coconut oil by massaging it into your skin. Your skin will quickly and easily absorb the oil and transport it into your bloodstream. Doing so will provide your entire body with a natural shield against airborne viruses and bacteria. You’ll smell wonderful as well. You really can’t go wrong with using coconut oil.

Chapter 6: Secret #6: Coconut Oil Treats Various Diseases

The key to living an incredible life is to be free of disease. Healthiness breeds happiness. While coconut oil’s disease-fighting skills are limited, it does combat many common diseases. In fact, Pacific Islanders consider coconut oil as the cure for all illnesses.

Diseases and Conditions Treatable with Coconut Oil

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Alzheimer’s Disease: Coconut oil actually has the power of improving symptoms associated with Alzheimer’s. Researchers are even considering the oil’s potential to prevent the disease from occurring altogether.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Heart Disease: Contrary to popular belief, the saturated fats in coconut oil is not detrimental to the heart, but beneficial for it. Lauric acid actively prevents heart diseases like high blood pressure and high cholesterol.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Artherosclerosis: Coconut oil reduces the incidence of arterial damage and injury, thus, it is effective in preventing artherosclerosis.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Candida: Candida is a severe disease caused by the excessive, uncontrolled growth of a type of yeast known as Candida Albicans in the stomach. The yeast is present in everyone’s stomachs, but its presence is not harmful unless it grows excessively. Daily intake of coconut oil effectively prevents Candida. Coconut oil can even cure the tragic disease.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Infections: Coconut oil kills the bacteria that cause UTIs, pneumonia, ulcers, and throat infections. It also eliminates the viruses associated with measles, SARS, and hepatitis. In terms of fungi, coconut oil cures athlete’s foot, ringworms, and diaper rash.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Pancreatitis: Inflammation of the pancreas can be treated through regular consumption of medium-chain triglycerides like coconut oil. MCTs are absorbed directly into the blood without the help of pancreatic enzymes to break them down.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Diabetes: Coconut oil improves insulin secretion and controls blood-sugar levels. In this regard, coconut oil treats and prevents diabetes—particularly in those who are at an increased risk of developing diabetes.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Osteoporosis: You already know that coconut oil facilitates the absorption of essential nutrients and minerals. These minerals include calcium and magnesium, both of which are essential for bone development. Thus, coconut oil is useful for treating and preventing the development of osteoporosis for those who are prone to the disease.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Kidney Diseases: Coconut oil treats and prevents diseases that affect the kidney and gall bladder. It also assists in dissolving kidney stones.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Liver Diseases: Because coconut oil is easily converted into energy when it reaches the liver, it eliminates the incidence of fat accumulation and reduces the amount of work the liver has to do. These are very helpful in preventing the development of liver diseases.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. High Blood Pressure: Excess fat is one of the leading causes of high blood pressure. Since coconut oil has the ability to reduce excess fat, it is also capable of lowering blood pressure. Many studies have confirmed the heart-healthy properties of coconut oil. For optimal effect, it is advisable to accompany coconut oil with regular exercise.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. STDs: Coconut oil’s antibacterial and antimicrobial nature enables it to potentially cure a variety of sexually transmitted diseases. These include herpes, Chlamydia, and gonorrhea.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Hypothyroidism: Hypothyroidism is a thyroid condition that is characterized by an underactive thyroid. Coconut oil assists in treating the disorder in many ways. First, the oil improves metabolism and digestion, which is especially helpful in hypothyroid patients who suffer from weight gain due to the condition. Coconut oil also stimulates the thyroid gland to produce more hormones, thus producing more energy. This eliminates the constant fatigue that is typical of those who suffer from hypothyroidism.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Bruises: Wounds and bruises tend to heal at a faster rate when coconut oil is incorporated into one’s diet. This is due to the oil’s ability to quickly repair damaged tissue beneath the skin. Rubbing coconut oil onto bruised areas of the skin is one effective way to treat bruises.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Low Libido: Increased sex drive is a fun side effect of using coconut oil regularly. Before you resort to other means, try taking in a tablespoon of coconut oil each day to increase your libido. Coconut oil works due to its high content of antioxidants which break down the free radicals that tend to lower sex drive.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Tooth Decay: When coconut oil is ingested via the mouth, it inhibits the growth of bacteria that cause tooth decay. This is just one more reason to start supplementing with coconut oil.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Germs: Coconut oil kills germs due to its high content of medium-chain triglycerides. Everyone can benefit from having less germs inside their body. Less germs equals more health.

#
p<>{color:#000;}. Cellulite: Medium-chain fatty acids are at it again! It is believed that these acids break down cellulite, thus reducing its appearance on the body. You no longer have to worry about wearing a cover-up at the beach.

#
p<>{color:#000;}.

Chapter 7: Secret #7: Coconut Oil is a Stress-Buster

If you’re a hardworking adult, you may find it difficult to find relief from stress. When a hectic schedule and the demands and challenges of daily life are constantly in the way, stress-relief may seem out of reach. Chronic stress acts as a gateway illness for other, more severe illnesses. This is why it is imperative to alleviate stress whenever possible. There is no such thing as no time. For the sake of your health, find a little time and set it aside for de-stressing.

The conventional treatment for stress generally involves the use of sedatives. The drawback is, sedatives are known to cloud the mind and impairs brain function. Even worse, sedatives are usually part of a package that includes unwanted side effects and the potential for dependence. Fortunately, there is a safer alternative: coconut oil.

Coconut oil may just be your knight in shining armor, come to rescue you from constant stress. Recent studies have confirmed coconut oil’s ability to combat stress more effectively than conventional drugs. Coconut oil is extremely soothing, hence it helps in reducing stress. Once you can honestly say you are stress-free, then you know you’re living an incredible life.

Coconut oil makes stress-relief extremely easy. It allows for a safe and effective way to lose stress and be a happier person—without all the unwanted side effects. Simply massage coconut oil into your temples, forehead, and the back of your neck. Not only will your skin absorb all the nutrients and fatty acids that coconut oil has to offer, but the aroma of the oil will clear your mind and alleviate mental fatigue.

Another great way to use coconut oil is to make a carrier oil out of it. Aromatherapy is one of the safest ways to relieve stress. It is a form of a healing that involves the use of the aroma exuded by essential oils through inhalation, or through topical application. The problem with essential oils is that, while they are extremely effective in combating various health problems, most of them are so potent that they can actually irritate your skin. This little drawback is easily fixed through the use of carrier oils.

Carrier oils are used to dilute essential oils before they are applied to the skin. Coconut oil is a favorite carrier oil among aromatherapy practitioners, more so than extra virgin olive oil and grapeseed oil, which are also popular carrier oils. This is because, unlike essential oils, coconut oil does not have a concentrated aroma, nor does it irritate the skin—not even the most sensitive of skin. Coconut oil actually facilitates absorption of essential oils through the skin. It also imparts a hint of a sweet tropical scent to massage oils. Furthermore, using coconut oil as a carrier oil combines the healing powers of both coconut oil and the essential oil that is being used! This amalgamation of powers produces some really magical effects.
