How to Use Coconut Oil to Boost Your Immunity

LIKE OGP ON FACEBOOK :

Coconut oil is a well-known superfood these days, along with an awesome cooking ingredient in place of butter. Coconut oil’s fats are prized for their easy to digest, quick to absorb features. Unlike butter’s saturated fats, coconut oil’s saturated fats are cholesterol-free. While it’s a fantastic oil, obviously, you don’t want to go overboard with it. Like all fats, coconut oil should be used in moderation and shouldn’t be consumed by the spoonful as a food itself. However, if you’re looking to improve your immunity, a little bit of coconut oil in your diet might help get you there.

Why Coconut Oil is Good for Immunity

Coconut contains two special ingredients that make it excellent for immunity. These are anti-viral properties, commonly referred to as lauric acid and caprylic acid. Both are well-known for fighting off yeast overgrowth (candida), along with bacterial infections. Coconut is actually comprised of 50 percent lauric acid, which the body converts to monolaurin, an antiviral agent that fights off a variety of pathogens and viruses. Many of the viruses and pathogens coconut oil has been found to prevent include the following: herpes, influenza, cytomegalovirus, HIV, listeria monocytogenes, helicobacter pylori, and harmful protozoa such as giardia lamblia. If you don’t know what all those are, don’t fret – just know that coconut oil is truly a wonderful tool to keep in your immunity kit of wellness as a more natural solution. Though it hasn’t been found to be a proven cure for any disease, the antiviral properties in coconut oil have been through extensive research.

Why Coconut’s Fats Are Unique

Coconut’s oils are also comprised of medium chain tryglyceride fats, which are used by the liver to aid in cleansing and for fuel (energy.) Unlike most fats that are stored, coconut’s fats are used for metabolism. They’ve been linked to cleansing the blood, weight loss, and even boosting digestion as another benefit. Coconut’s fats, unlike most saturated fats, have also been linked to a lower risk of heart disease, due to the high amounts of lauric acid coconut contains. The lauric acid content has also been shown to lower blood sugar and high blood pressure.

How to Use Coconut Oil for Immunity:

If you’re looking to boost your immunity naturally, simply use a teaspoon of coconut oil a day. While some proponents advise going with multiple tablespoons, coconut’s anti-viral effects can be quite strong unless you’re used to them. A common issue known as the die off effect, is well known to cause unpleasant symptoms like headaches, fatigue, muscle pain, etc. as bacteria starts to die off in the body with the use of coconut oil. To prevent that and still get the benefits, along with prevent taking in tablespoons of pure oil a day, just use a teaspoon. You can stir it in coffee, which many people refer to as bulletproof coffee, or you can use it in any of your dishes like oatmeal, soups, smoothies, stews, or even make dessert and cook your veggies in it. If you’re not comfortable using coconut oil, go with coconut butter, which retains all the fiber naturally found in coconut, along with some of the oil.

You can also use coconut oil on your skin, which is our largest organ. We absorb everything we put on our skin straight into the bloodstream, within minutes of contact. Protect your skin just like you would your internal organs when it comes to fighting off immunity invaders. Coconut may act as a natural “shield” for viruses and bacteria in the environment, and as bonus, you’ll smell amazing!

What to Remember About Coconut Oil and Immunity

Remember that coconut oil isn’t a miracle cure for any illness, though it does research backing its benefits. You should also remember that eating a well-balanced, plant-based diet free of processed foods, unhealthy fats, refined sugar and grains, and animal products is important to obtain a healthy immune system as well. That being said, if you’re already eating a diet that’s healthy and want an extra boost, add some superfoods to your diet, including coconut oil, and even camu camu and goji berries, which also have immune-boosting properties. Avoid refined coconut oils, and go with extra-virgin and organic for the best quality.

Greetings to the general public, i want to tell you about how i was cured of herpes/HIV by Dr Enoma the God on earth. About 2 months ago I was here searching for some kind of relief/cure for genital herpes and HIV for my husband and i. We have been suffering from Herpes/HIV outbreaks for 18 years and we have been miserable with almost non stop outbreaks. ( It sure has taken its toll on our sex life). I stumbled across surfing the Net and i got to know about Dr Enoma Natural Herbal Medicine, i immediately contacted Dr Enoma to buy the herbs. We both started with morning and night applications and we took it for 30 days as instructed by Dr Enoma and after we finish the medicine we went for a medical test and our result came out Negative!! i mean Negative like Herpes Negative and HIV Negative, it sound unbelievable right? this is why i call Dr Enoma the God on earth (smiling). My dear lovers, You can as well contact Dr with the provided information: [email protected] Whatsapp: +2348079055268.

ATTENTION PLEASE;

NATURAL ROOTS AND HERB ARE BEST TO GET RID OF SIMPLEX VIRUS TYPE 1&2

There is currently a herb cure for Herpes Simplex virus. Most treatment on herpes focuses on getting rid of sores and limiting outbreaks.
It is possible that your sores will disappear without treatment. However, your doctor may determine that you need one or more of the following medications:
acyclovir
famciclovir
valacyclovir
These medications may come in oral (pill) form, or may be applied as a cream. For severe outbreaks, these medications may also be administered by injection.However, there are herbal therapies that could totally eradicate this virus from the body meanwhile there has been proofs and lots of testimonies to that effect. I took my time to investigate one DR, GOSSY on how his herbs magically cured my friend Anthony and his girl friend who contacted this embarrassing virus. Please do reach out to DR, GOSSY via his Email: [email protected] . Dr, GOSSY has also cured so many patience such as: (HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS),
(CANCER), (LUPUS), (TUBERCULOSIS), (PREGNANCY HERBS ), (WARTS) ETC.for your own NATURAL ROOTS AND HERBS Cure.

GOOD LUCK
