50 of the Best Uses for Coconut Oil

coconut_oil_imageCoconut oil has a bit of a craze surrounding it lately.

People have put together hundreds of different uses for this beneficial oil and it’s found its way into pantries, medicine cupboards, and even first aid kits. Some of the uses may seem bizarre at first, but coconut oil has garnered this newfound fame for good reason. It works.

For years, coconut oil has had a bad name, lumped in with unhealthy saturated fats. People steered away from it and other high fat foods. The problem with throwing coconut oil in the same category as butter, margarine, and shortening is this oil is far healthier than it appears. The saturated fats in coconut oil come from medium chain triglycerides. These shorter fat chains are easily put to use by the body and are not simply stored away as fat. 

This means coconut oil boosts energy levels, raises good cholesterol, and balances out blood sugar without the weight gain, cholesterol, and other health risks that come from other saturated or trans fats. Coconut oil doesn’t stop there. It’s antimicrobial, antioxidant, antifungal, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-parasitic, and antiviral. It also aids in the absorption of vitamins and minerals. These immune boosting properties make it the perfect oil to use in a million ways. Here are 50 of our favorites.

    Hello, Cyril: Greetings…. Just read the coconut oil piece. I make my own coconut oil straight from the nut. I think coconut oil has worked for me from birth. Did I ever send you my piece on the coconut tree?

    Hello Hubert:
    Maybe you did send it to me some time ago. Is so, it is on the archives of my previous system. You can send it again and I will attach it as a PDF entry to this story.
    Thanks…
    Cyril
