77 Uses for Coconut Oil (including food, body, beauty, household, and more): http://bit.ly/2sUX5xl

In today’s episode of Ancient Medicine Today, I’ll be talking about the benefits and uses of coconut oil as well as how it can be used as a medicine on a daily basis.

To date, there are over 1,500 studies proving coconut oil to be one of the healthiest foods on the planet. Coconut oil benefits and uses go beyond what most people realize, as coconut oil — made copra or dried coconut flesh — is a true superfood.

Research has finally uncovered the secrets to this amazing superfood: namely healthy fats called medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs). Ninety-one percent of the fat in coconut oil is healthy saturated fat. This fat composition makes it one of the most beneficial fats on the planet.

Most of the fats we consume take longer to digest, but MCFAs found in coconut oil provide the perfect source of energy because they only have to go through a three-step process to be turned into fuel vs. other fats that have to go through a 26-step process!

Unlike long-chain fatty acids found in plant-based oils, MCFAs are:
– Easier to digest
– Not readily stored as fat
– Antimicrobial and antifungal
– Smaller in size, allowing easier cell permeability for immediate energy
– Processed by the liver, which means that they’re immediately converted to energy instead of being stored as fat

All of this shows why this oil made from coconut copra makes for a true superfood, and it’s why coconut oil benefits are so plentiful and amazing.

    Okay I just recently started using extra virgin coconut oil from the pharmacy section of the food store I started taking or consuming raw coconut oil with an eye dropper of maybe three to four drops for the first couple of days and then the third day I took about a spoonful on the 4th I noticed that I had woke up this morning with very itchy skin so this tells me that I'm having allergic reaction my question is should I dilute this coconut oil into food or drinks to see if it easiest allergic reaction or should I cut it off immediately.

    I was so happy to see a video that went in to the extraordinary uses for coconut oil and our health! Not just smaller uses but big ones like the profound results studies have shown with Alzheimer’s. I believe it is a miracle food and the word still needs to be spread!
