Coconut Oil

Coconuts are an excellent source of nutrition and have healthful meat, juice, and oil. The oil is arguably the most nutritious and has many health bene ts. Coconut oil is over 90% saturated fat and has antimicrobial, antibacterial, and anti-fungal properties. It also has antioxidant properties and it helps in the absorption of other minerals.

Coconut oil is an incredible source of medium chain fatty acids (MCFAs), which have been shown to have many health benefits.

MCFAs can help increase metabolism since they are sent directly to the liver and give the body an instant source of energy.
