Extra virgin coconut oil is a miracle of nature. It is antibacterial, anti-fungal and antiviral. Immediately second to breast milk, it is the second richest source of lauric acid, used to treat influenza and other viral infections, HPV warts, HIV/AIDS, bronchitis, yeast infections, ringworm and intestinal infections. In a nutshell, it's extremely powerful!

What makes coconut oil so exceptional is its chemical composition. Coconut oil is 90% saturated fat, but this type of fat is not the type you'll find on your thighs or around your waist; it consists of triglycerides, or medium-chain fatty acids, that are not stored as fat in the body, but go directly to the liver, where they are immediately converted into energy.

Coconut oil is so good for you while also being incredibly versatile.

Check out this list of 100 benefits and uses of coconut oil to see how you can use it in your everyday life.
