Virgin Coconut Oil - The Real Natural Beauty Care Formula

Recommended Posts

I like homemade beauty recipe, as it is natural that we don't have to worry about chemicals and side effects. For example, natural hair dye, handmade soap & shampoo. For mouth consumption, I will also choose something organic & natural.

 

As a regular consumer of pure virgin coconut oil, I would say it is a real natural beauty products, for improvement of skin condition and antioxidant. I also use VCO externally for hair & face.

 

Virgin Cocout Oil (VCO) is not only limited to women, but it also brings many health benefits to men as well as your fur pets which is outlined further in this article.

 

So What is Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO)?

VCO is coconut oil at its best, cold pressed and naturally processed from freshly harvested organic mature coconuts. It has a very light delicate flavourful aroma which could be consumed directly by a spoonful for health benefits, and can also be applied externally for vanity purposes. It is also organic without any added preservatives.

 

VCO is different from cooking oil as it contains medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs), caprylic acid, capric acid and lauric acid all of which are good compounds that not only promotes general well-being but also helps in losing fats in the abdominal area!

 

One would think that regular consumption of any kind of oil would only increase ones’ cholesterol level or belly size; however, this is not true and is only a misconception. As VCO is made up of small molecular size MCFAs, it’s easily penetrable into the membrane cells and upon digestion, the fat-soluble nutrients is absorbed rapidly and converted into energy. Regular consumption has proven to improve in blood cholesterol profile, boosts immune system and metabolism, relieve external infections associated with bacterial, fungal and viruses.

 

For General Well-Being, Application Or Daily Consumption Of VCO Helps In:

I agree. Coconut oil has so many benefits. I started using lotion bars on my skin that has organic coconut oil in it. I definitely see lots of changes. My skin is smoother and more youthful looking. The best part is the lotion bars has all natural ingredients which I know is safe unlike all the chemical base products we get now days.
