Available in health shops, coconut oil solidifies if placed in the fridge and melts into a liquid in warmer temperatures. I tried it on my porridge this morning and can confirm that it made a delicious change. You can also add a spoonful to a smoothie or fry chicken or steak in it.
Having read up on this oil, not only does it have a lovely taste, it is believed to boost immunity and bone density, improve thyroid function and take some load off the pancreas, as well as increase energy and endurance. It is also said to be a powerful anti-oxidant.
Not only is coconut oil beneficial in our diet, but on our skin and in our hair. It is also believed to combat Athlete’s Foot if rubbed into the affected area two to three times a day, and at the same time, its antibacterial properties help those with stinky feet to smell fresher!
