: Nature’s Way Liquid Coconut Oil
is one of the only LIQUID
forms of coconut oil (!!!) I’ve ever seen. It’s kind of magical because of it’s anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral properties
(basically kills all the BAD things that give our bodies issues). You can cook with it, put it on your hair and skin, eat it or swish it around in your mouth (more on that later).
WHY: The uses of coconut oil are endless, but here’s a few major ones… hair care, skin care (natural anti-bacterial properties help to fight acne, as well as soothing to skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema), stress relief, cholesterol level maintenance, weight loss (coconut oil is a healthy fat that is easy to digest and increases energy), boosted immune system, proper digestion and regulated metabolism. It also provides relief from kidney problems, heart diseases, high blood pressure, diabetes, while helping to improve dental quality (natural teeth whitener, and prevents tooth decay).
You probably have heard about the OIL PULLING on your social media feed recently.
WHERE: Nature’s Way Liquid Coconut Oil can be found at Whole Foods Market, Vitamin Shoppe, or online the cheapest I found was VitaCost, $9.99 for 10 fl oz bottle. A little goes a LONG way, as you only need about 1-2 Tablespoons for most uses.
Note DO NOT TRY regular coconut oil on your hair (liquid is key!) because it will take you MANY washed to get it out.
THE VERDICT: I LOVE this specific coconut oil because it’s the only one I’ve seen that stays liquid at room temperature (this is because of it’s 1.5x higher level of Medium Chain Triglycerides). I frequently use this one on my hair (it’s good for blondes because it’s a clear oil… colored oils such as Moroccan/Argan/Jojoba oils can leave a tint on light hair colors). Although I haven’t used this one for cooking, it’s great for that as well!
