I absolutely love coconut oil. My daughter, who is a master researcher, discovered the many uses for us. My family and I use it in our hair, on our skin, to cook with, and for oil pulling.
We use virgin organic coconut oil. Amazingly affordable!
I would urge you to take a look at using coconut oil as your main cooking oil as opposed to vegetable oils. Many find coconut oil to be highly superior to vegetable oils. Coconut oil sustains heat well, which makes it good for cooking.
Also, there are many other natural oils that are good to use, such as: red palm, avocado, almond, olive, and grape seed. Some of these are better used cold as in salads because they cannot sustain high heat well.
Take a look at the information available via your favorite search engine on the benefits of coconut oil. I have found so much information on this versatile oil – coconut oil. There is significant research around memory health. Also, it is high in antioxidant properties – a big plus.
