Coconut is quickly becoming one of the most popular superfoods. For a few years it was frowned upon because it is very high in saturated-fat (90%) but new research has proved that this saturated fat is actually very good saturated fat and has countless nourishing benefits and can improve your health significantly.
Here are some of the reasons why organic virgin coconut oil is such a superfood:
This virgin coconut oil is made from organic coconuts and is cold-pressed and never refined, deodorized or bleached! Savor its rich aroma and its smooth and sweet flavor. It’s ideal as a medium-heat cooking oil, a nutritious substitute in baking and even “better than butter” on bread, vegetables or popcorn. A pinch of salt will reduce the coconut flavor in savory recipes.
You can even use the luscious, soothing oil on your skin and hair. Use coconut oil as a natural skin moisturizer, eye make-up remover, or deep conditioning hair treatment. Combine coconut oil with coconut sugar and essential oil for an exfoliating, refreshing body scrub.
