In the past, coconut oil had a bad reputation. People thought it was fatty, caused high cholesterol levels and led to heart disease. However, studies have shown that this is a misconception.
In fact, the reverse is true. Coconut oil has a plethora of benefits to one’s health. Through word of mouth and testimonials from satisfied users, coconut oil has seen a surge in popularity.
While it is true that coconut oil is high in fat, this is the type of “good fat” that the body craves. It is not hazardous to your health and instead of causing cardiovascular disease, coconut oil prevents it!
People were too hasty and jumped the gun by assuming that coconut oil was deleterious to their health. The truth the matter is that coconuts have been used for centuries as a food and a remedy.
In fact, coconut by-products such as coconut water and coconut milk are highly beneficial to your health.
Even the actor, Dustin Hoffman, once said, “The two basic items necessary to sustain life are sunshine and coconut milk.
Coconut oil is not to be confused with the hydrogenated oils sold in supermarkets. The commercially sold seed oils such as corn oil, sunflower oil, canola oil, peanut oil, etc. are highly detrimental. We will be looking at this in greater detail later.
For now, you should note that coconut oil is a natural oil and a cut above the rest. In fact, it is so good, it cannot even be compared to the unhealthy oils populating the store shelves.
