Mom’s Health Corner: Coconut Oil is the Windex of My Life

February 27, 2017

♥ Coconut Oil is the Windex of my life. ♥

If you understand that analogy then you must have had an amazing Italian grandmother like me. Got ants in the house? Toenail fungus? No problem. Her uses for Windex were endless. It was the staple of her life. There wasn’t a single problem that Windex couldn’t cure.

Skin/Hair

When I turned 28 my skin took on a new identity. I had always battled with dry skin (probably because I don’t drink nearly enough water) but then my scalp started to get really dry and itchy. My hairdresser recommended trying coconut oil and it was a game changer for me.

Now? I use it as my daily moisturizer. It doesn’t have all of the fake and harsh chemicals found in your typical moisturizers and I love the smell. Coconut oil helps to balance the fat and moisture content of your skin and acts as a natural sunblock.

Studies show that coconut oil is powerful enough to benefit people with eczema and psoriasis, but gentle enough to use on premature babies.

Cooking

Coconut oil is a super food. It’s rich in fatty acids that are easily metabolized by the body. I use coconut oil in my pans when I’m cooking or as a non-stick spray when I’m baking. The flavor doesn’t stand out in the food and you can feel good knowing you’re using healthy oils.

Lower Blood Cholesterol

Coconut oil works to reduce bad cholesterol and raise good cholesterol levels – protecting you against heart disease. It improves blood clotting factors as well.

Brain Power

Researchers are studying the use of coconut oil as a potential therapy in Alzheimer’s patients.

Bonus: Pathogen Killer

One of the fatty acids in coconut oil is Lauric Acid. Its digested components help to fight off bacteria, viruses, fungi, and yeast. These are all benefits for your digestive tract and your skin – keeping you healthy inside and out.
