Coconut is a relative newcomer to the list of superfoods. But to ancient healers, coconut has always been a star. The benefits of using coconut oil can transform nearly all areas of your life. There are more than 1,500 studies that show coconut oil is one of the healthiest foods you can put inside your body. This fruit has healthy fats that are called “medium-chain fatty acids” – or MCFAs. The MCFAs include acids that your body needs to maintain its overall health, including caprylic acid, lauric acid, and capric acid.
