Centrifuge separated coconut oil, made from fresh, virgin coconut milk , is a highly nutritious food and topical skincare product. However, it is a saturated fat with high caloric value. Overweight people and those who modify their fat consumption for a variety of reasons, should use it in moderation. Low to moderate consumption of 1-2 tablespoons daily is acceptable for most folks and can help burn an extra 5% of calories ingested. More is not necessarily better. Alzheimer's and epileptic sufferers can benefit from larger doses, but may need to adjust their diet to with more bulk to avoid constipation. Those with an allergy to tree nuts are cautioned to use coconut products sparingly.
As a light moisturizer and skin softener, coconut oil can be enjoyed by those who are not acne prone, or do not have very dry skin. Coconut oil can clog pores and doesn't help those with very dry skin. Marula oil is better for these symptoms as a topical product. I import organic Marula oil from the first year's harvest for special moisturizing effects. I also hand prepare a Rose Oil Masque that benefits all types of skin. Rose Gardenia moisture cream is a light day/night blend of vitamins and amino acids that regenerate healthy skin.
Coconut oil can also benefit the hair. Once a week moisturizing or less often can soften dry hair without clogging the scalp or hair follicles. Rinse thoroughly after allowing the coconut oil to penetrate and soften the hair.
Moderation in using super foods allows the body a way to use it's individual self healing resources and harmonize the benefit of all nutrition and natural skincare.
