Coconut 3

It’s a New Year and our thoughts are turned to health and wellness–at least for a couple of weeks! So, I think it is important to talk about an oil that is pretty amazing–both for our physical and mental health. That oil is none other than coconut oil!

Modern medical science is now confirming the use of coconut in treating many of the conditions below. Published studies in medical journals show that coconut, in one form or another may provide a wide range of health benefits. I have found over fifty uses for coconut oil and since that is too many to put in one blog, I’ll divide them into two different blogs. Also, these bullet points do not provide detailed information about the uses of coconut–but you can find detailed information online, if you are interested.

Needless to say, coconut oil is an amazing oil and can be use to treat many different things from your skin to your bladder! You can purchase coconut oil from Costco. It looks like shortening–because it is very white, but it can easily be melted and is not affected by heat. I put one tablespoon in my daily protein drink. I think after reading these two blogs on coconut oil you will agree–its uses are varied and many and you should add it to your daily diet.
