Coconut oil is a staple of every health-conscious person’s diet – and for good reason.

The versatile oil has been used in India for generations owing to its unique properties, and is now beloved by foodies and fitness fanatics the world over.

Ready to nourish your body inside and out? Now’s the time.

Uses of Coconut Oil: An Overview

Coconut oil uses are famously various: the versatile tropical oil somehow manages to be both a healthy cooking ingredient and a much vaunted beauty product. 

Depending on who you speak to, coconut oil can whiten stained teeth, condition damaged hair and soothe eczema and dry skin. When used in high-temperature cooking, it also provides a ready source of energy. Some even use it for shaving.

The next time you’re asked ‘What is coconut oil good for?’ you won’t have to rely on Google!

The Many Benefits of Coconut Oil

Like most products which are entirely natural, coconut oil is good for you; really good for you. In fact, it’s probably the best dietary oil of the lot. We’ve listed the most common coconut oil uses below.

• Coconut Oil for Energy

Coconut oil is one of nature’s richest sources of fatty acids, in particular medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs): caprylic, capric and lauric acids. 

MCTs aren’t like ordinary fatty acids. Instead of being processed in the lymphatic system, they are transported directly to the liver where they’re quickly broken down and absorbed into the bloodstream.

In other words, our body uses these special fats very efficiently, burning them for energy while storing precious little as fat. Little wonder coconut oil is so popular with athletes, people looking to stay trim and those fighting off fatigue. 

Medium-chain triglycerides are also renowned for producing ketone bodies, the preferred ‘fuel’ of the brain. At present, there is much research investigating the effect of ketones on neurodegenerative conditions such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.


“Because MCFA's are preferentially used by the liver as a source of fuel to produce energy, coconut oil consumption can boost your energy level. It's like adding a premium grade gasoline into a high performance car. Your metabolism is shifted into a higher gear.”

- Bruce Fife, Naturopathic Doctor and Author of ‘The Coconut Cure’ -

 

• Coconut Oil as a Healthy Alternative to Butter 

Because coconut oil doesn’t break down easily at high temperatures like other cooking oils, it’s increasingly popular in food preparation. It’s great for cooking eggs, for instance, or spreading on toast.

Many bakers prefer to use coconut oil instead of butter in baked goods, and it’s also a key component in Thai cooking. Some even swear by mixing coconut oil into coffee.

Given that MCTs are used for energy rather than stored as fat, there’s one frequently-cited benefit of coconut oil: weight loss. The satiating and nourishing natural fats perfectly complement a healthy weight-maintenance routine.

In one study, those who ate a high MCT diet consumed less calories than those on a low MCT diet. In another, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, a weight-loss diet including MCTs lead to a greater rate of weight loss than olive oil.

• Coconut Oil for Great Hair and Skin

As mentioned, one of the most popular coconut oil uses is in skincare. The natural oil melts into the skin and can be used to nourish dry areas or even soothe eczema. It could also help improve the appearance of stretch marks or substitute as a luxurious massage oil.

Because organic coconut oil contains small amounts of antioxidants, it may also help to curb inflammation as part of a healthy regime.
