What is Coconut Oil Used For? Health Benefits and Side Effects of Coconut Oil in Food

Coconut oil has innumerable health benefits. It is great for skin care. It acts as a moisturizer for all skin types. It is magical for dry and aging skin. The fat in the oil helps reduce wrinkles without irritation. It also aids in the treatment of many skin diseases including psoriasis, eczema and dermatitis. It relieves mental fatigue by massaging it in the head in circular motion. Its aroma is very soothing and helps reduces stress. Coconut oil also prevents indigestion due to its anti- bacterial activity against those organisms that cause bowel habit upsets. It is also effective for irritable bowel syndrome and aids in absorption of vitamins, minerals and amino acids. It is absolutely awesome for fitness as it elevates metabolism and thyroid function and thus helps in the burning of unwanted fats. This is why it has become popular as the world’s only natural low calorie fat. It speeds up the healing process and is a good source of nourishment for hair. Hydrogenated coconut oil raises serum cholesterol levels and can lead to diabetes.
