My husband was told of the beneficial properties of coconut oil for his dietary detox. After using it for his detox, we became, well IN LOVE with coconut oil.
Here are some of the benefits:
Helps the body fight off excessive intestinal candida (yeast)
Maintaining healthy cholesterol
Beneficial for hair and skin use.
New research is showing reduction in the effects of Alzheimer's Disease as well as Type I and Type II Diabetes.
A blog on Dr Oz this to say
Another site says..."These benefits of coconut oil can be attributed to the presence of lauric acid, capric acid and caprylic acid, and its properties such as antimicrobial, antioxidant, antifungal, antibacterial, soothing, etc. "( source )
Homemade Mayo & Ketchup
Fudge, cookies, cakes, puddings, muffins, brownies
Gluten free/Dairy free recipes
and the uses go on and on and on
Personally we have used it for cooking (not so much frying since we avoid fried foods for the most part). My husband would mix equal parts almond butter and coconut oil and use it as a spread for rice cakes or sprouted english muffins for a healthy, energy packed breakfast or snack. He would also mix it in his yogurt and even got to where he would eat a teaspoon full three times a day. Although we cannot contribute the entirety of his feeling better to coconut oil, we know that it was a healthy addition to his detox and he felt amazing.
For the purpose of my review I used Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil (I was not compensated for the review, it is my own and honest!)
