WHAT IS IT?
Coconut oil is made from the meat of mature coconuts. It’s solid at room temperature, but melts at 76 degrees Fahrenheit.
WHAT MAKES IT HEALTH-IER?
Coconut oil is made of Medium Chain Triglycerides, as opposed to long-chain fatty acids in most oils, so it metabolizes differently. This means, it metabolizes faster and might be linked to weight loss and boosted brain function!
HOW DO I USE IT?
Use coconut oil in place of oil in baking or cooking. Plus it makes a great addition to your beauty routine – put it in your hair, on your skin, or try oil pulling!
*It should be noted that most health benefits are linked to organic unrefined coconut oil, however that has much more of a coconut flavor than refined coconut oil does.
