Healthy Benefits of Coconut oil
Adding a tablespoon of coconut oil to your smoothie can help curb you appetite. We use coconut oil smoothies in our 21-day cleanse program and the results are incredible. Coconut oil also helps all those precious vitamins and minerals from the plants absorb into your body.
The skin needs healthy fats to stay supple, which is why coconut oil is a great addition to your diet if you’re trying to achieve glowing skin.
According to Dr. Oz, “Coconut oil improves calcium and magnesium absorption in the body, which in turn is greatly beneficial to dental and bone health. The improved calcium absorption created by coconut oil use ceases tooth decay and aids in the development of strong teeth.”
