In this post, I want to talk to you about Coconut’s Health Benefits.
The oil of the coconut offers a wide range of nutritional and health benefits which include everything from lowering cholesterol,
reducing the risk of heart disease, promoting weight loss, helping to maintain a target weight, boosting energy levels, increasing the metabolic rate and preventing wrinkles.
It also contains lauric acid, a powerful antiviral and antibacterial agent, which is believed to be a valuable in preventing routine illness and boosting the immune system. All great benefits for us, especially for baby boomers and our senior clients.
It contains calcium, iron, zinc, magnesium, potassium and a whole host of vitamins, the coconut is a real powerhouse which can be safely added to most people’s diets,
So how can you reap the benefits of Coconut Oil.
I use coconut oil in the morning to make a scrambled egg. My wife puts a tablespoon in her smoothies, and my sister takes a tablespoon straight.(not for me) I have also heard people add a teaspoon to their Coffee or oatmeal.
So, as busy as you are, be sure to take time and keep learning! Until next time this is …Kurt Hjelle with Safe at Home Healthcare.
