What if I told you there was one product you could have in your kitchen that can double as a cooking alternative and a beauty product? I bet you think I’m crazy.
Well, I’m not!
IdealRaw Coconut Oil can do all of this and provide SO many amazing health benefits to your body!
What is Coconut Oil?
Coconut oil comes from the dried meat of the coconut, which is called the copra. The copra is made from the coconut palm and is mechanically pressed to extract the oil from the meat to make coconut oil.
Since coconut oil contains saturated fat, which consists of medium-chain fatty acids, it is easier for your body to digest. These fatty acids go straight to your liver and turn into ketones, which can help you produce energy.
Depending on how you plan to use coconut oil, there are two different types you can buy: refined and virgin.
Refined Coconut Oil
The process of which refined coconut oil goes through, strips away some nutrients and provides a much less potent coconut flavor.
It comes from the copra, which is the meat inside a coconut, and is set out to dry for several days, then expeller-pressed.
This type is a better option for cooking and baking with, because of its higher smoke point and less potent flavor.
Virgin Coconut Oil
Virgin coconut oil comes from fresh coconuts, so the coconut flavor is a little more noticeable in this type.
This kind of coconut oil is cold-pressed and has more antioxidants in it, so it is great for hair, skin, and mouth health.
There are so many uses for coconut oil! It’s like your one-stop product for all things. Aside from using it for baking and cooking, there are also many benefits to adding it to your beauty regimen.
