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.

Good day everyone, i\'m Maria, If getting herpes cure was that easy then why do a lot of people still suffer from herpes?. i was diagnosed of herpes back in 2013 and i was also told it has no cure, i have been leaving with it since then, but i kept praying and doing everything possible to get cured, so i never stopped doing research about finding a cure, i came across testimonies about people getting cured through herbal medication, and i have always believe in herbs and its medical properties, after doing so many research about it i found Dr. Bulukona and i discovered he was a professional in herbal medication and he has also helped many people, i contacted him through his Website: bulukonasolutiontemple.webs.com, we talked on phone and i confirmed he was genuine, i did all what he told me to do, i received the medicine, used it as he has prescribed, and glory be to God almighty i am completely cured, i went back to my doctor to confirm it. Do not be deceived THERE IS A CURE FOR HERPES, doctors might tell you there is no cure but WITH HERBAL MEDICATION THERE IS A CURE and if you need it contact Dr. Bulukona Email: [email protected],

Hi friends!
I am MELISSA ADAMS by name and i live in NEW YORK CITY and i want to use this great opportunity to share with you a testimony on how i was cured from GENITAL HERPES with the help of Dr OROROGUN Herbal Medicine.

Over 2 years now i have been suffering and living in pain with this deadly virus Herpes, fear grew in my mind everyday as i heard there is no cure for it, but to me i knew that medical drugs was not the only option in treating viruses and infection, my greatest problem was that i was stocked in pain as the symptoms has circulated over my body.
Few Months ago i decided to get more information online concerning herpes,and while i was surfing the web, i came across some great testimonials from various people on how Dr OROROGUN has been using his herbal medicine to cure different diseases, at first i was shocked as i have never heard of such thing before, and also i doubted if it was true as it never came up on media, these people gave out the email address of Dr OROROGUN and advised we contact him for any problem, though i was doubting him i decided to put a test on it, moreover it was the fist time for me to hear something like that, i copied the email address of Dr OROROGUN and i sent him a message about my health status and i also requested for his medicine in order for me to get good health, he gave me a responded after some hours and he told me the procedure involved in order for me to get his medicine, he also said to me he was going to send me some herbal liquid medicine which I was going to take for 2 weeks and after 2 weeks i will be totally cured.
I went with Dr OROROGUN and i followed exactly as i was told by this man, after 3 to 5 days of communication i eventually received a package from the mailing service and that was the medicine sent by Dr OROROGUN
I started taking the medicine as i was directed by Dr .OROROGUN and after 2 weeks i also started seen some changes on my skin, and after a month passed i noticed that the rashes on my skin are cleared and i was now urinating without pains, i was surprised and i had a thought to myself again LIKE! IS THIS REALLY WORKING OUT? when i noticed this changes i contacted this Great Dr and i told him about it, he told me to go to the hospital and do some check up if the virus is still there, i actually went to the hospital on Friday to do some test and after 3 days the result came out that i was completely free from HERPES, still many people will not believe this, but it really works.
Dr.OROROGUN, is a brave man and he is set to answer all human diseases, today i am living in good health as just with a test i conquered my pain and sorrow, Please you can contact Dr OROROGUN for any problem or viral disease email him immediatly for your complains :[email protected] you whattsApp the number we often use in chatting and communicating +2349033470441.

Hi there,I have had herpes for a little over 2 years now, I am almost 36 years old, female, and totally embarrassed when I have an outbreak. I refuse to go to classes and will make up an excuse not to go to work so people cant see what my face looks like. For treatment I use Oregano and Meleleuca essential oil in my water for internal use or dab a small amount with coconut oil on the affected area. I also rub oregano with coconut oil on the back of neck since the nerves that run into my face stem from my spinal cord.
