Coconut oil offers a myriad of health benefits, but you probably didn’t know that it can also detoxify the body. This beneficial oil kills parasites, bacteria, and viruses, and fights infections.
Coconut oil is abundant in medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), which boost the immune system. Moreover, it contains lauric and caprylic acid which have potent antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal properties, and cleanse the body.
Coconut oil regulates the intestinal flora and improves digestion while detoxifying the tissues and organs.
Studies have shown that coconut oil:
- Prevents brain damage
- Improves the function of the thyroid
- Helps weight loss
- Prevents digestive issues
- Regulates the production of glucose
- Prevents cardiovascular problems
- Relieves and prevents joint pain
- regulates the level of cholesterol
- Improves skin tone
For best effects, always use raw coconut oil. To use it to detoxify the body, you should take half a teaspoon at first. Add the coconut oil in a glass of warm water, and drink it every morning for a week.
Over time, gradually increase the amount of coconut oil to a few tablespoons, three times a day, at every 3-4 hours. Remember to drink plenty of water during the detox treatment.
You can enrich the flavor of the remedy by adding some fruit juice or yogurt to the water.
