Authentic Food of the Day: Coconut Oil

I’ve been using coconut oil for a lot of things lately, and not just for cooking! I rub it on my lips, skin, and sometimes even my hair. I always love the way it tastes and smells; it reminds me of summer vacation! Coconut oil has powerful antimicrobial and antifungal properties. It has been shown that coconut oil can help ease the symptoms associated with throat infections, pneumonia, sinusitis, food poisoning, urinary tract infections, conjunctivitis, and stomach ulcers. Coconut oil has a neutral effect on blood cholesterol, even in situations where coconut oil is the sole source of fat. Remember that the saturated fats found in French fries are totally different than the health saturated fats in natural foods like coconuts. Coconut oil aids in the absorption of calcium, magnesium, and amino acids. When buying coconut oil, always go for the best; virgin or extra virgin coconut oil because then it is never hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated, and it is processed without high heat and chemicals.
