The many health and beauty benefits of the Coconut

Communities in many tropical regions have been using the coconut for health and beauty benefits throughout the centuries. Its healing properties are numerous including helping our bodies to metabolize cholesterol faster, resulting in overall lower cholesterol levels, enhancing thyroid function (weight loss and disease prevention), reduces the risk of heart disease, cancer, and other degenerative conditions as well as supporting immune system functioning. The subtle, delectable flavor coconut oil, as well as the “milk” (the flesh of the coconut), makes it a nutritious and delicious addition to appetizers, salads, main courses, stews, and drinks. For beauty purposes, applying coconut oil to dry and damaged hair adds moisture and it's an excellent frizz tamer as well as a makeup remover and face and body moisturizer.
