Single Serving of Coconut Oil can Boost Brain Health Significantly ("VCO, the best brain booster")

Single Serving of Coconut Oil can Boost Brain Health Significantly ("VCO, the best brain booster") | Gift Baskets | Scoop.it
Were you aware that consuming a single serving of coconut oil daily can preserve brain health and reverse dementia and Alzheimer's thanks to healthy fats?

Perhaps you already know about the numerous health benefits of coconut oil, but were you aware that in as little as one daily serving, the medium chain triglycerides (MCT) or ‘healthy’ fats in coconut oil can start to repair slow neural pathways and improve cognitive functioning and memory? This is true for people of all ages, but especially in senior adults.

While many people believe they should avoid fat altogether, medium chain fatty acids are vitally important for our health. They help to:

Prevent vitamin deficiency since many vitamins like vitamin D are only found in fatty parts of foods (good, not man-made fats, like hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils which have been tampered with by man) and are therefore called fat-soluble. This means your body can only absorb these vitamins by eating healthful fats.Good fats can increase the bio-availability of fat-soluble nutrients needed for multiple tasks in a healthfully functioning body.Good fats support both physical and physiological health in developing children, starting as early as during fetal development.

Suggest cooking and baking with coconut oil too, as long as its flavor is masked by the other flavors.

6 Ways to Use Coconut Oil for Healthy Skin ("the best natural way to treat skin problems")

6 Ways to Use Coconut Oil for Healthy Skin ("the best natural way to treat skin problems") | Gift Baskets | Scoop.it
Skin problems? Instead of using a pharmaceutical solution, try reaching for the coconut oil - it is a natural remedy that can help with many skin issues.

Here are 6 ways coconut oil can benefit the skin:1. Wound healing - Because coconut oil has these various protective qualities, it is a good choice to use as a wound-healing solution. It can prevent infection and speed the healing process.2. Eczema - Coconut oil is also effective in the treatment of atopic dermatitis, or eczema. This skin disorder produces an itchy red rash and sometimes scaly, dry patches.3. Wrinkle-reduction - Because coconut oil helps produce collagen (the connective tissue in the skin) it can help keep your skin looking younger, longer. Apply it around the eyes and to areas where wrinkles are common.4. Make-up removal - Coconut oil makes an excellent eye make-up remover, one that doesn’t contain any unnatural toxins. Simply massage a little around the eyes and wipe clean with a soft tissue.5. Hair conditioner - By using coconut oil on your hair before you shampoo, you won’t be left with any oily residue. The coconut oil still acts to hydrate the hair and is a great option for people with very dry hair.6. Dry patches - Anywhere you would normally use Vaseline, you can use coconut oil. Use it as a treatment for dry heels or elbows, or on hands in the cold, dry winter months.
