Coconut oil is a popular alternative to regular vegetable oils for many reasons, namely because it doesn’t have the polyunsaturated fats that can be damaging to the body. In fact, coconut oil does the opposite; the beneficial fats found in this highly popular oil actually combat the effects of free radicals, acting like an antioxidant to protect the body against a number of chronic diseases, including macular degeneration. Coconut oil is widely available and is relatively inexpensive, and can replace things like butter, margarine, and other unhealthy oils. Coconut oil is not only great as an ingredient, but also as a body rub for healthy skin! Protection Status
