Using REAL FAT for Health, Beauty, and Healing
Can saturated fat be good for you?
Natural coconut oil-not the hydrogenated version often found in processed foods-is a saturated fat, but not the kind your doctor has warned you about. Studies have shown that this uniquely curative oil actually has innumerable health benefits ranging from disease prevention to anti-aging.
When taken as a supplement, used in cooking, or applied to directly to the skin, coconut oil has been found to:
- Promote weight loss
- Help protect against heart disease, cancer, diabetes, arthritis, and many other degenerative diseases
- Strengthen the immune system
- Improve digestion
- Prevent premature aging of the skin
