I have fallen in love with Coconut oil!!!
I absolutely love this oil. I have been using it for oil pulling (teeth). I have been rubbing it on a section of my gums in the hope it will give it some added nutrition and help it grow back a little. (I brushed too hard and caused some gum recession) Now I know you can BRUSH TOO HARD.
I am cooking with coconut oil.
I am putting coconut oil in my coffee and my breakfast smoothie.
I am using it as a lotion after I get out of the hot tub at night and the shower in the morning.
Many of the articles that I have been reading talk about the greater benefits of unrefined, Organic Virgin Coconut oil. The unrefined has the most beneficial properties intact. So as I am writing this post I am waiting for my first order of this Jarrow’s Brand.
As an update, I wondered how I would do with adding this “fat” to my diet. Now don’t get me wrong, I am probably not using more than a table spoon or so a day but I am continuing to loose weight not gain. This Jarrow brand is wonderful!!
Here is one article that talks a little about the differences in refined and unrefined.
