WHY YOU NEED COCONUT OIL IN YOUR LIFE!!!


GUEST POST BY AMY ANDERSON 

Hi Everyone, I’m Amy from Coconut Health & Healing, and I’m here to tell you why you need Extra Virgin Coconut Oil in your life!

Everyone once thought that Coconut Oil was a high saturated fat that was bad for you, but that’s a big misunderstanding. The saturated fat found in coconut oil is a “good” saturated fat. A fat that our bodies need. There are medium-chain saturated fatty acids (like those in coconut oil) and long-chain saturated fat (like those in meat).  The medium chain saturated fatty acids are stored into your body as energy not fat! So you’re burning energy off at a faster rate which is great for weight loss. Coconut Oil also contains lauric acid 50% which balances the gut flora and aids digestion so you don’t feel bloated.

Here’s why you should use this AMAZING product:

Prevents heart disease
Kills diseases causing bacteria, viruses and fungi
Weight loss
Boosts your energy and increases your metabolism
Enhances the immune system
Balances blood sugar and controls diabetes
Creates radiant skin
Helps reduce sugar cravings
Supports healthy thyroid function

Coconut Oil uses:

Cooking - Use in replacement of your cooking oil. Coconut oil is the only oil that isn’t damaged by heat.
Smoothies - It'll thicken them up and make them taste even more delicious.
Makeup remover - I use coconut oil to remove my eye makeup every night!
Hair mask - Cover your hair in the oil and leave in overnight for a truly nourishing treatment without the oily residue. Best hair conditioner in the world!
Body moisturiser - Lather it over your whole body. You skin will become amazingly soft.
Supplement – I take 1-2 tablespoons everyday by the spoon or I have it in my green or lemon tea. Yum!!!!

How much should I be taking a day?
