Beauty is dependent on the overall health of your body. In order for your skin to look attractive and vibrant you need to make healthy lifestyle choices. A good place to start is with the foods you eat.
Free radicals are toxic byproducts that can have the most harmful affect on your health, beauty and longevity. Especially found in heated, rancid and unsaturated oils, free radicals can damage proteins, fats, cell membranes, and vital DNA. They can also help accelerate the ageing process.
Coconut oil is a saturated fat that is made up of medium chain fatty acids (MCFA’s). The MCFA’s in coconut oil possess incredible health giving properties. They provide natural anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, ant-viral and detox benefits. Coconut oil is cleansing, nourishing and helps with the body’s absorption of vitamin E and omega 3’s, which further enhances its beautifying effects.
Coconut oil reverses the free radical tissue-damaging process by displacing the rancid oils from the tissues and providing fat-soluble vitamins, minerals and super nutrition factors directly to the damaged tissue.
Eating coconut oil, and other raw, whole and super foods that cleanse and nourish your body can dramatically improve the appearance of your skin, hair, nails and eyes.
In his book The Coconut Oil Miracle, Bruce Fife, ND, details: “Studies show that dry skin contains a higher content of unsaturated fatty acids (60%) compared to normal skin (49%). The best oil to use is one that doesn’t create free radicals. Saturated fat fits that requirement.”
The health and beauty benefits of coconut oil are effective when used both internally and externally. What you apply to your skin is deeply absorbed by your body; so if you can’t eat it, don’t put it on your skin.
If you are one of the millions of people worldwide that spend money on vitamins and lotions in an attempt to look and feel better, then it only makes sense to incorporate organic virgin coconut oil into your daily diet.
It wont take very long to start seeing the major benefits that coconut oil will have on your health and the way that you look and feel.
