We all know how great coconut oil is… or do we? It’s hard to believe, but there are still some skeptics out there. We’re here to put them to rest with the science-sound evidence of the health benefits of coconut oil.

The Amazing Health Benefits of Coconut Oil

Burns Fat

“A saturated fat burning fat?” the skeptics may say.


There are now two human tested studies on the fat-burning qualities of coconut oil. One was done by Universiti Sains Malaysia and shows that 2 tablespoons of coconut oil a day will slim down your belly fat.


Improves Memory

Scientific journal Neurobiology of Aging published one study in 2006 proving medium chain triglycerides, like those found abundant in coconut oil, increases ketone bodies in subjects with Alzheimer’s disease or mild cognitive impairment.

Heals Wounds

Coconut oil has been used to heal wounds for centuries. But in 2010, Skin Pharmacol Physiol published a study that finally clarified the reason why coconut oil is such a powerful healing agency.

Researchers Intahphuak, Khonsung, and Panthong proved in 2010 that coconut oil has great anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and fever-reducing abilities.

Treats Fungal Infections

52 forms of Candida species were exposed to coconut oil in an important 2004 study by the Department of Medical Microbiology & Parasitology at the University College Hospital. They were all susceptible to the oil, especially Candida albicans.


Researchers had this to say about coconut oil’s anti-fungal properties:

“Coconut oil should be used in the treatment of fungal infections in view of emerging drug-resistant Candida species.”

Protects the Skin

A human study done in 2004 states that coconut oil efficiently blocks UV rays by 20% and protects skin damaging effects from the sun.

These are only some of benefits of coconut oil and to fully grasp just how great this oil is, you need to try it for yourself! It’s many other forms, such as coconut milk and water, are also proven to be highly beneficial in living a healthy lifestyle.
