Fabulous Coconut Oil - For Skin & Cooking

Try coconut oil for a great medium-chain essential fatty acids oil. You can use this oil for cooking and other health needs like your skin, too. Pure, unrefined, white virgin coconut oil is one of the most amazing health products you can use. Purchase at most any health food store. Always store in a cool place such as a counter wine cooler or your refrigerator.

Coconut oil is very healthy to use in cooking as it contains a unique form of saturated fat that is very important for prevention of diseases such as stroke, heart disease, and other cardiovascular-related problems. This oil has been used for thousands of years in both Asian and Indian cultures for food and medicinal purposes. Ayurvedic medicine of India considers it one of the most respected substances in prevention of health problems. It is also very stable because it can withstand higher cooking temperatures than many other oils such as olive without going rancid.
