The organic coconut oil has several health benefits and it is excellent for thyroid treatment.

The rich amount of lauric acid contained in it gets converted into a mono-glyceride called mono- laurin inside the body. This compound can destroy the several viruses and bacteria.

It contains medium chain fatty acids which increase the metabolism of the body, fights against pathogens and boosts the immune system.

The coconut oil is used in general household cleaning and natural shining of furniture.
The main precaution is to choose an organic, unrefined, unbleached coconut oil made without heat processing or chemicals. Besides it should not contain genetically engineered ingredients or preservatives. 

The other uses of coconut oil together with cooking and eating are in topical application in beauty products.

It is also used on burns and first aid treatments.

The recent researches prove that it may become a natural treatment for Alzheimer's disease. It is due to the reason that the ketone bodies derived from medium chain fatty acids act as an alternate source of brain fuel. It thereby prevents the brain loss associated with dementia or the memory loss.

Another wonderful thing about the coconut oil is that it does not produce an insulin spike in the bloodstream. Hence a spoonful of it could be taken for a quick energy boost without any increase in blood sugar.
