The medium-chain fatty acids or medium-chain triglycerides in coconut oil offer benefits for weight management. Some health scientists even go as far as to describe coconut oil as a type of fat that helps turn your body into a fat-burning furnace.

The reason for it’s metabolic benefits is that the medium-chain fats are small and enter the cells within your body and are used for energy by your mitochondria very quickly. This translates to instant energy that is not stored as fat within your body.

Besides the metabolic boosting properties in coconut oil, there are also powerful immune system boosting nutrients. The lauric acid contained in coconut oil has antiviral, antifungal, antibacterial and antiprotozoal benefits.

Use coconut oil by adding it to your fruit smoothies and enjoy for breakfast. You may also bake, fry and basically, get creative with this great oil.

Keep adding habits that increase your personal wellness.
