HJ: Coconut oil is much more than just a basic cooking oil — it is a powerful medicine that has the potential to help you transform your health when used regularly. Some see it as a fad, but long-time users (myself included) vehemently attest to its benefits and mild, delicious taste. Coconut oil is particularly beneficial for Vegans and Vegetarians as it provides a much needed source of saturated fat into their diets. Furthermore, coconut oils medium chain fatty acids are extremely beneficial in treating a wide range of diseases that affect a large portion of the population such as candida and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
Coconut oil is widely used as a cooking oil in tropical locales across the globe and is only recently coming into wider use in the West. It can be found in every health food store and on many websites online. When choosing and oil make sure that it is Organic and unrefined — extra virgin coconut oil is best. We highly recommend the Nutiva or Ojio brands.
