Who should use coconut oil?
Provided there are no reactions once consumed, anyone can enjoy the benefits of coconut oil. Including babies, through to the elderly and immune compromised.
Start slowly, for adults 1 tsp per day and you can work up to 1 tbsp daily maintenance. Athletes or ill patients can get a high dose of coconut oil through 3 tbsp per day.
You can cook with coconut oil. It has the great benefit of being stable at high temperatures, preventing the conversion of its chemical structure to a transfat. Transfats are created when any other oil is heated through cooking. Being a saturated fat, coconut oil can withstand any oxidative damage that commonly occurs when other oils are heated.
Additionally coconut oil can be added to meals, smoothies or recipes; straight off the spoon or added to warm water and drank through the day. It melts at around 24 degrees C, so you will need to keep it out of the fridge otherwise it will be too hard to use.
Another use for coconut oil is for your skin, in place of lotions and moisturisers.
Be sure to use unrefined/ cold pressed coconut oil, organic if possible.
