The Power of Coconut Oil
One of the most common conditions my clients come to see me with is red, inflamed and severely dry skin.
In an attempt to improve this condition, one of the ingredients I reach for is Coconut Oil.
Benefits of Coconut Oil on the Skin and Body:
- High levels of antioxidants and fatty acids
- High content of lauric acid
Coconut Oil for the Skin:
Coconut oil has a long history of use in combating pathogens and it is the natural richest source of lauric acid.
Lauric Acid is a fatty acid that has a long shelf life and is non-toxic.
Essential fatty acids are the main nourishment for the cell membranes. If the cell membrane is not nourished and healthy, the cell itself can’t be healthy.
Antioxidants are extremely important to protect skin cells from free radicals.
Antioxidants are free radical scavengers and fight off these bad boys.
Coconut Oil for Consumption:
Coconut oil is a traditional oil that has been consumed for thousands of years in tropical cultures.
