Celebrities like Miranda Kerr are huge advocators for it and it’s becoming an increasingly popular pantry staple, so why is everyone raving about coconut oil?!
22 AMAZING reasons we’re crazy about coconut oil
Coconut oil is extracted from the flesh of coconuts and has a slightly nutty flavour. Not only is this superfood high in natural saturated fats, but it also helps convert bad cholesterol into good choleste…rol and lowers the risk of heart disease, says Choice.
And if all that wasn’t good enough, it also eases digestion, boosts metabolism and controls sugar cravings!
What’s more, 2-3 teaspoons of coconut oil a day can also help fight infections, destroy bacteria in the throat and also help prevent dental cavities and food poisoning.
