Sri Lankan Coconut Oil
Sri Lankan coconut oil is extracted from the fruit of the coconut tree and has been used for centuries in traditional medicine.
Coconut oil makes a healthy cooking oil as it is stable and doesn’t damage at high heat. Studies have shown that adding this oil to your diet may lower heart disease risk and positively influence cholesterol levels.
The oil is rich in saturated fats called MCTs (medium chain triglycerides), like lauric acid, palmitic acid and caprylic acid which are responsible for its health benefits. These compounds have a positive impact on metabolism, digestion, heart health, brain health, energy, skin and immunity.
Coconut oil is a hydrating and quick absorbing oil that is rich in antioxidants like vitamin E which may minimize the signs of aging and treat sun damage, dry skin and skin disorders.
