The use of coconut oil has rapidly increased within the last couple of years thanks to popular culture. There was a time where coconut oil was very frequently used at least more than it was now. It was the go-to cooking oil back in the day, but because of the saturated fats in the oil it was widely disapproved and newer polyunsaturated oils were introduced. A downside to these polyunsaturated vegetable oils is that they have too many omega-6 fatty acids and those led to problems with your body that include heart disease, inflammatory conditions in your joints and skin, such as arthritis. Perhaps it is the reason for the rise in high rates of disease in America?
What Americans did not know before is the actual health benefits of coconut oil in comparison to the vegetable oils. The benefits range from, skin care, to weight loss, and immunity. One helpful area of this coconut oil magic that is interesting is the ability to Heal in Infections: When the oil is applied to infected areas on the body, it forms a micro chemical layer that protects the body part from any dust, air, fungi, bacteria, and viruses. Coconut oil works very well and is effective on bruises as well as it speeds up the healing process of damaged tissues.
