As mentioned before, coconut oil can be a healthy saturated fat with many benefits:
-Promotes healthy weight
-Promotes faster weight loss by helping to burn fat for fuel instead of carbohydrates
-Anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial
-Helps absorb nutrients
-Promotes brain health
-Promotes oral health by reducing plague
-Easy to digest
So as long as you’re consuming it in gallons, coconut oil may not only be good for your hair and skin, but may also be good for your health.
In case you’re looking for an alternative oil to cook with, Nicassio recommends avocado oil because, unlike vegetable oil and canola oil, it can withstand higher heating temperatures. If you’re seeking an oil to use as a dressing and not to cook with, there is olive oil.
If you have any questions about what foods or oils promote good health, you should always contact a certified nutritionist.
