What amazes us the most is what the medical and nutritional fields are discovering about pure Coconut Oil.
Coconut Oil Beauty Benefits
The myth was created a few decades ago by the agricultural communities that all saturated fats are bad for you. It’s believed that it was spread out into the nutritional news that other forms of unsaturated vegetable fats were the superior health option. In America, corn and soybean oils are grown abundantly. The American environment can not support an adequate amount of Coconut plantations to feed the country or produce a lucrative crop source. So the choice to give Coconut Oil a bad rap went under way. Turns out that after many years of research and a decline in the American health condition.. it has been learned that saturated Coconut Oil is a far better choice. Skin care products contain many different types of unsaturated oils in them. Our skin, which is part of our excretory system, is our largest organ. Our skin contains thousands and thousands of capillaries which are absorbing everything we are applying to our skin and delivering it to our blood stream. Once something hits your bloodstream, it is taken throughout your body to be metabolized. Doesn’t it make sense that if we watch what we eat, we should be watching what we put on our skin if both will be metabolized in the same way? Organic Coconut Oil is almost made up of entirely Medium Chain Triglycerides. These fatty acids go straight into the digestive system and to the liver, where they are going to be turned into ketone bodies and are created into a form of energy source for all of the cells in our body, including skin cells.
As our skin ages, the cellular turn over rate begins to slow. The skin needs the nutritional Coconut Oil beauty benefits to help keep it soft, supple and youthful looking. When we drink plenty of water, get our rest and eat right, it shows. Once we begin to topically apply what our skin needs to maintain it’s acid mantle or protective barrier, our skin gains a youthful radiance. We can use any of the chemically cocktailed, mass marketed skin care products which make promises of younger looking skin, but once we begin to really understand the functions of our skin and how much it really does matter what we put on it, we will all decide that the Coconut Oil beauty benefits outweigh our other options…
