- As a skin moisturiser

- Mix with sea salt as a foot scrub

- Mix with shea butter as a body balm

Health Benefits of Organic Virgin Coconut Oil

Contains good source of healthy fats in the form of lauric acid, a medium chain triglyceride (MCT) which have the following benefits:

  • Digestive aid

  • Anti microbial action in the gut assisting with irritation and some infections or overgrowth with bugs such as Candida albicans

  • Contributes to mental alertness

  • Supports normal hormonal balance

  • Not stored as fat, processed by liver, and is an immediate energy source

Digestion of MCT's in the liver creates ketones, which are readily accessible as an energy source by the brain. Providing an alternate route to help brain repair.

Research shows that the ingestion of these medicinal MCT's, may therefore be of great benefit for those suffering with Alzheimer's Disease.
