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.

I was haven herpes 2 on my private part. I have had them for about 2 and a bit years. I am so scared what my mates are going to says if there should fined out i have herpes on my private part and due to the virus my girlfriend broke up with me. I have been to the Doctors 9 times to get it treated. They all come back. I have been using Tee Tree Oil and Wartner (You freeze them at home) and they seem to be keeping the smaller herpes small but they can\'t seem to treat the larger ones. They don\'t get any bigger, but then they can\'t shrink as much. They get smaller a little part at a time. At least they are getting smaller! As soon as I see a new herpes appearing, then I treat it. At the moment I have been using Tee Tree twice a week and then using Wartner every 2 weeks. I was wondering if there was any other information about how to get rid of it. I am only a teenager and I hate it most when it get pi-chins me to scratch it, it get sweets when scratching it most times! I want to get rid of it so bad! DR.ODUDU website has been a huge help and has helped me realize a lot more about me and my family of genital herpes! so that was when i switch for natural remedy to see if there could be any help by herbal remedy, i search and i saw a great posts by Sarah devise adebayo ehijactor and shanttel Merritt on about the great herbal doctor that get them rid of there disease infection. and this great herbal doctor was called DR.ODUDU so that was when i contacted him for my own treatment and he prepared me some herbs which i takes for some couples of days, and i take it as he says before i am to no me and my family was perfectly cure for it and never experience it again. please friends if you have herpes virus and you really wants to get rid of it, please contact this great DR.ODUDU for herbal treatment and you will get rid of it.

My Name is Lisa Lawson from united states ...HIV has been ongoing in my family for long..I lost both parents to HIV and it is so much pain has not been able to get over. As we all know medically, there is no solution or cure for HIV and the cost for Medication is very expensive. Someone introduced me to a man (Native Medical Practitioner). I showed the man all my Tests and Results and I told him have already diagnosed with HIV and have spent thousands of dollars on medication. I said I will like to try him cause someone introduced me to him. He asked me sorts of questions and I answered him correctly. To cut the story short, He prepared some herbal medicine for me and he thought me how am going to use them all. At first I was skeptical but I just gave it a try. I was on his Medication for 3 days and I used herbal medicine according to his prescription. That he will finish the rest himself. And I called him 3 days after, I arrived and I told him what is the next thing he said, he has been expecting my call. He told me to visit my doctor for another test. Honestly speaking, i never believe all he was saying until after the test when my doctor mention the statement that am, HIV negative and the doctor started asking me how do I do it....Am telling this story in case anyone may need this man’s help. He is the Great Dr EBAKO here is via email address [email protected] or call +2348141695777 whats-app him is willing and ever ready to help,him is a great herbalist that treats and cure all manner of diseases .Contact him today and get your problem solve.Thanks
