2. Characteristics of Coconut oil

To support weight loss!

Medium-chain fatty acids (lauric acid, caprylic acid, capric acid), which make up about 50% of coconut oil, are efficiently converted into energy and aren't easily accumulated as fat in the body, making them ideal as oils to be taken during weight loss.

For prevention and improvement of dementia!

The decomposed medium-chain fatty acids are not glucose but ketone bodies, which are used as energetic materials.
This mechanism is said to be effective in preventing and improving Alzheimer's disease.

Boost immunity!

Lauric acid, the main fatty acid in coconut oil, is also found in breast milk and has the effect of boosting immunity.

Antibacterial and antiviral effects!

Lauric acid, the main fatty acid of coconut oil, acts on bacteria and viruses and has strong antibacterial and antiviral effects that destroy cell membranes.

For UV protection!

Although it is only a little like SPF8, it has the effect of blocking UV rays and gently protects the skin from UV rays, so it is recommended when you want to get a beautiful sunburn.

3. How to use Coconut oil

・Instead of the usual oil

It is an oil that can be heated, so it can be used for stir-fried foods.

・For making sweets

It has a sweet flavor, so if you use it instead of butter for making sweets, even if you make less sugar, you will be satisfied, so it is recommended!
Also, if you add it to unsweetened yogurt, you can easily enjoy the feeling of tropical sweets!

・For sun oil and oil cleansing

Although it can prevent UV rays a little, it doesn't have the effect of preventing black sunburn, so it is recommended to use it as sun oil when you want to get a beautiful sunburn.
It can also be used as a cleanser when removing makeup.
※It is a slightly irritating oil, so if you have sensitive skin, try it little by little.

4. Notes of Coconut oil

Coconut oil has many benefits, but the most effective is organic, unrefined cold-pressed virgin oil!
However, unrefined cold-pressed virgin oil has a low smoke point, so it is better to avoid long-term high-temperature heating such as deep fried.

There are many good effects in this oil, but oil is oil.
So don't add a lot to the oil you're using or just drink a lot of coconut oil, we recommend using it instead of other oils!
