Organic virgin coconut oil has various benefits for our health:

  1. Weight management:

Organic virgin coconut oil is high in saturated fat does help in reducing those extra kilos. The medium chain fatty acid takes off the excess weight as it does not circulate in the bloodstream like other fats which means it is not stored but it is used for energy. It has been found to increase metabolic rate too which is another plus point for the weight droppers.

The Journal of Nutrition published a study where researchers investigated all studies relative to medium chain fatty acids (MCFAs) that are abundant in coconut fat and weight management. The studies showed that diets rich in fats such as those found in coconut oil prompted a boost in metabolism, increase in energy, decrease in food consumption, reduced body weight and lower body fat mass. The authors of the study highly recommend using oils that contain MCFAs, such as coconut oil, as a tool to drop extra abdominal fat, manage a healthy weight, and even as a way to treat obesity.

  1. Thyroid balance

Organic virgin coconut oil helps to fuel the action and proper functioning of this tricky, butterfly-shaped gland which provides energy, supports the health of your skin and metabolism and keeps your moods in balance.

  1. Skin & hair care

There has to be a reason why coconut oil is a base for many body-care and hair-care products. Coconut oil has great antioxidant properties and is an effective moisturizer. It prevents flaking, drying and sagging of skin. It gets a shine to hair, elevates growth and cures dandruff and breakage of hair.

  1. Builds immunity and fights infection
