Four ways VCO can help you

Posted on 31st Oct, 2016

We would have heard of virgin olive oil, but virgin coconut oil, or VCO, is not that familiar.

Virgin Coconut Oil or VCO is a cold-pressed oil extracted from fresh coconut milk without any application of heat, ensuring that there is no bleaching or refining in the extraction process.

Some benefits of this oil are:

  1. Metabolism

VCO contains lauric acid – an essential medium-chain fatty acid that has antimicrobial properties, which helps support the immune system, aids in weight loss, and stimulates metabolism in the body.

  1. Hair

VCO has antiseptic properties and is easily absorbed by hair, thus preventing protein loss and other hair damage.

  1. Skin

VCO is used to treat acne and eczema due to its natural anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-viral properties. Additionally, VCO is an excellent moisturizer that is not greasy and leaves you feeling comfortable and dry when you apply it on your skin.

  1. Food

Virgin Coconut oil contains more antioxidants and has a natural coconut smell and flavor, which is perfect for cooking your favorite curry or granola in.
